    I've only had a Wii for 6 months and I need to know what I missed in these genres. [​IMG] Can you guys tell me the great adventure and hack and slash games that came out or are coming out? Thanks

    From what I understand, No More Heroes is hack and slash, with less of the adventure department. There's always the VC Zelda OoT, or Master Quest (with WAD,) or Wii version of Twilight Princess. Depends on your taste actually. Check Metacritic scores for the Gamecube and Wii library to see what's worth your time.

    No More Heroes is mental, it is just hack n slash. Very Japanesey, but good fun IMO. Or you could even try Madworld?

    HAHA, I forgot about this one. It is an acquired taste, but I like it. Shaking the blood off the sword is a nice touch, worthwhile having in the collection

    Where are you these days Soul? Never see you on MSN.

    Zelda TP is pretty good for Hack and Slash. No more Heroes and Madworld would probs also count. If you're looking for more Zelda type stuff, You could Try the One Piece Ultimate Adventure/Cruise games. Also Monster Hunter 3? I haven't played it but it looks like Hack and Slash with a bit of RPG in it.

    I've been away from home for almost a week, and I never had anytime to go on MSN. I've also been messing with USB loaders and trying to get Wii Sports Resort to work. I totally forgot about TP and I am still going to play it once I dump it online.

    I saw some trailers of MadWorld on Youtube and am really disapproving of it but I will also try it out to see if I like it or not.

    i agree with the earlier post about 'no more heroes' it probably the best the wii has to offer - it has great moments during the boss levels but is very diluted down with repetitive sand box missions (it would have been better IMHO had they just chopped out the sandbox world as they didn't put enough time into it).

    otherwise grab a ps2/psp and get a 'God of war' game

    By Hack'n Slash I suppose you mean the Beat'em Up games with swords (or any weapon), right?
    And by Adventure, something like Maniac Mansion?
    In case the answer for the above questions is "yes", here are some nominees:

    Hack'n Slash
    No More Heroes (as already mentioned before)
    Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers (also mentioned before)
    Star Wars - The Force Unleashed
    Soul Calibur Legends
    Prince of Persia - Rival Swords
    Lego Star Wars - The Complete Saga
    Death Jr II: Root of Evil (more a platform game, but still...)
    Rygar: The Battle of Argus
    Sonic and the Black Knight (what? It is!)

    Adventure
    Zack And Wiki Quest For Barbaros Treasure
    Sam & Max Season 1
    Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law ('sorta like Phoenix Wright games)
    Coraline
    Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars ~The Director's Cut~
    Secret Files: Tunguska
    Secret Files 2: Puritas Cordis
    Another Code: R - A Journey Into Lost Memories

    Also, as a bonus, some beat'em up games:
    Transformers - The Game
    Spiderman 3 - The Game
    Avatar The Last Airbender (some RPG elements)
    Avatar The Last Airbender - The Burning Earth (some RPG elements)
    Avatar The Last Airbender - Into the Inferno (some RPG elements)
    Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
    Lego Batman: The Videogame
    The Incredible Hulk
    Spiderman - Web of Shadows
    The Simpsons Game
    Spiderman - Friend of Foe
    Ben 10: Protector of Earth
    Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars
    Deadly Creatures
    Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop
    Madworld (I don't believe this one fits the "hack'n slash" category)
    X-Men Origins: Wolverine
    Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen

    As for The Legend of Zelda - Twilight Princess, it's an Action RPG, where, sure, you hack'n slash enemies, but it's not the "prime" factor...

    Well, that's it from me, see ya.

    not to derail.. but any other *english* games out similar to FFFCD? I just beat it last night. It was my first dungeon crawler believe it or not, hoping there's something else out there (on wii) which is similiar.

    If you can read Japanese, or know what to do in this kind of game, Sengoku Basara Heroes 2.
    It's fairly good.

    I don't know FFFCD (never played it), but if you're looking for a "rogue-like" game, you may try Baroque.
