If the Namco Museum games were a total bust, we suspect Namco Bandai would stop making them. Fortunately, the most recent remix... or re-release... or re-released remix made us glad we came back for more. Namco Museum Megamix is a collection of 18 classic Namco arcade games, and six of those games have been “remixed” or updated to more contemporary gameplay. While the old classics retain their appeal (and, unfortunately, bad graphics), the remixed games don't all make the mark...
Naruto. Its fans overrate it, and its haters underrate it. It’s an unfortunate situation, because by name alone many people will shun Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 as just another licensed title for Wii. Ignore your gut reaction - Tomy Corporation has developed a deep, enjoyable fighting game here.
Slaying dragons is one of those things that games should always do well. The ingredients are simple - cool characters and big ass, fire-breathing dragons. But when the dragon-slaying recipe includes sluggish framerates, shallow character development, and controls made nearly impossible thanks to difficult camera angles, then you get something to the effect of Naruto Shippuden: Dragon Blade Chronicles...
It’s tough to slag on a game as robust as Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2. It’s got more than 30 fighters ripped straight from the beloved anime/manga, it supports a four-player battle royale mode that’s a blast, and the single-player story mode has really nice variety.
Although it’s relatively low key on Wii, Need for Speed: Nitro smacks of something born in focus groups and marketing meetings. This year you’re going to be into ‘taking ownership’ of ‘your media’ so here’s a racing game that’s all about you.
Without a doubt, the main attraction of this is that it comes bundled with a special NERF pistol. Like some kind of Transformer that never was, the pistol works as a proper soft dart gun which you can use to terrorize friends. But you can also click out the barrel and insert a Wii remote to make a very neat lightgun. Proper job, as we say down here in the Wild South West.
