    Not particularly bothered by madworld and haven't really completed a wii game since I bought my 360 in december, can anyone recommend some new titles to blast through?

    COD5 was a disappointment on the wii, found the online crap compared with live. Really enjoyed HOTD: Overkill, but can't think of anything else that's come out since?

    I'm loving Pro Evolution Soccer 2009, I think it's the best game I've played for the Wii ever.
    Deadly Creatures is also pretty good btw.

    I've got Pro Evo 09 on the 360 so can't really justify getting another version, means one wouldn't get played anyway

    that deadly creatures seems to have divided opinions, is it a decent game or just tacked on wii controls?

    Pro Evolution Soccer on the Wii is way different then the other versions, they really put a lot of effort in it and it pays off.
    That's why the Wii version was only releases a month ago, and the other versions got released 5 months earlier.
    If you like soccer games, you should give it a try.

    What do you mean by tacked?
    Deadly Creatures has nice graphics, sound and it has a cool factor. The camera tends to be a problem sometimes though.
    But all in all I would give it an 8, especially the graphics are very well made.

    I had pro evo 2008 wii and just couldn't get into it. I think it was a commendable effort to try something new, but it's the kind of game that warrants a ps2 pad, or a 360 one at a push.

    By tacked on i meant games that were basically using a controller but they'd added on some needless 'shake to do something' element - bit like warioland shake dimension.

    Ah, if you played PES 2008 on the Wii, and you didn't like it, then there's no reason for you to download 2009.
    2009 does support the Classic Controller though, so if you have it, give it a try.

    The controls of Deadly Creatures are good, not too much shaking. All the moves are very logic.

    I'll look into renting deadly creatures then, cheers

    I've only got gamecube wavebirds, not classic controllers, and seems a bit pointless to get it to play on normal controls lol

    Deadly Creatures indeed, very nice game
    And I really like Rogue Trooper. PS2 port I believe, but still a very nice game.

    I played that on the PC and it was very good. Recently started playing the Wii version and I can highly recommend it, there isn't anything like it on the Wii and more people need to play this game either on PC, Xbox or PS2.

    No multiplayer in any form. Read the game's review for more info:
