    Hi jumpman17

    If it's not too much of a bother, would it be possible to see the Mario Kart Wii, and Okami reviews typed up please? [​IMG]

    Yeeeeeeeeaaaaaaah 9.0 for Mario Kart Wii . . . Can't wait to play it [​IMG].
    And Okami got 7.5 !!! I was hoping for a better score [​IMG] . . . That game was awesome on the PS2.

    famitsu gave it (mario kart) 10/9/9/9 as well, thats 37/40. so hopefully its every bit as awesome as the mags will have us believe. In other news, if you haven't played okami yet, you should its a great game and no doubt wii will make it a lovely experience!

    That Okami score is weird.. most websites gave at least a 9.0 for the PS2 version, and everyone was saying that the Wii version was looking better and the controls were perfect for the game [​IMG]

    Ohh... I really wanted Okami to be good... but if it's worse than the original (which I have already finished), I think I will skip this one... [​IMG]

    I'm pretty flabberghasted at the score for Mario Kart Wii. Of course, the same guy who reviewed it (the EiC) is the same guy who gave Brawl a 10 without ever having played the game online.

    Nintendo Power may always have been cotton candy for Nintendo fans, and I still enjoy the rag, but at least their review scores always seemed honest. That is until Future took over here recently.

    I haven't played Mario Kart Wii yet, so of course, I can't judge the dude's review. But based on his past reviews -- including Brawl, whose online is practically broken for many people -- I don't trust this score for MKW at all.

    Okami on PS2 pissed all over Twighlight Princess, I guess that the controls weren't done so well like they were with RE4. I thought the people behind God of War PSP would've got it down really well.

    Thought Rondo of Swords & N+ would have been better rated.

    Of course thats IF Nintendo Power are right, which they're usually not. Best to play these for myself.
