    OpenJazz is a port Alister's Jazz Jackrabbit engine to the Wii. The game is a platformer which has been described as a mix between Megaman and Sonic the Hedgehog.

    No comments? Maybe a better picture may get people to try this.

    Meh best I could find.

    This was back when Epic did different genres. Use to play this a lot in the mid 90's and I loved it. Can't say I was into the sequel much or the GBA game.

    I played the OpenJazz port on the Dreamcast and it was a lot of fun still, ti ran Jazz Jackrabbit, Jazz Jackrabbit CD, Jazz Jackrabbit Shareware Edition, Jazz Jackrabbit Christmas Edition, and Jazz Jackrabbit: Holiday Hare 1995. I suppose this one does the same too.

    Impressive, I guess. Good port, especially for being able to support music. Weird default button assignments, though (A and B buttons for NES-style wiimote?)

    Meh, I'd rather play JJ2. Online multiplayer in the '90s for a platformer? HELL YEAH.

    Indeed, I'd rather see Jazz Jackrabbit 2, including the secret files. I still play that one on a regular basis on my PC.

    As far as I know the OpenJazz engine only supports Jazz 1 (and maybe the Christmas episodes); this wasn't developed from scratch, it's a port of the PC version, so it's not really a matter of "lol dey shud have done jj2!!!!"
