    I think this is a reply just for the sake of replying, anyone with the ability to test I would really like to know how this turned out.

    supposedly the best version of a modern classic on any format, even with a wiimote but can anyone really get excited about playing a two year old game yet again with some refined controls? Would you rather have resident evil 5 instead? Well I can pretend it might happen

    Great! I haven't modded my Wii so I'm going to buy the European version (though I already have the Gamecube version, I bought it for my Wii).

    Can somebody confirm if the Wii Edition can import Gamecube saves? And does it support playing Gamecube-style with the Gamecube-controller?

    Thanks a bunch!

    it's unlikely to supprt GC saves on a Wii, not sure how that would work anyway - and the game only supports wiimote and nunchuck as far as I know, also this Jap version is allegedly censored (heads don't come off for example)

    Well, you can just put Gamecube controllers en Memory cards in the Wii [​IMG] So it's very much possible. The question is: do they implement it?

    Yeah, I don't get excited about those titles either, fresh, original IP is what the Wii needs though rather than another Gamecube port. If it were a case of mentioning the Wii's best titles thus far with this being one of them, then you could say that the Wii's best are simply gamecube ports (including Zelda, which frankly was crap IMHO).

    Well, the Wii IS just two Gamecubes duct taped together, so of course it's best games are Gamecube "ports". Cause it IS a Gamecube! [​IMG]

    Right... So how do you use a Wiimote on the Gamecube again? And where do these updated graphics and internet services come from?

    I may be the only one, but I'm getting sick of people who don't call the Wii a nextgen console. (well it actually isn't, as it is currentgen now [​IMG]). What would you say if I would claim that the Xbox 360 isn't nextgen because it has the same controller? It's just bullcrap! The currentgen consoles atm are Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360. Don't forget handhelds though: DS and PSP (and some more... I'm sorry GP2X-fans, I forgot for a second [​IMG]).

    I understand if you call GBA and PS2 previousgen, but the Wii isn't!!!

    I agree with you sekhu some original stuff is desperately called for (yet to play twilight princess though for either console), the first year of any console (or version of directx) is always some of the best of the last version polished up for (or crow barred into) the new hardware with the occasional gem thrown in for as long as I remember though.

    ... Oh... Right...

    I'm feeling really stupid right now [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I surf a lot on Dutch gaming forums, and in EVERY (yes, really every) thread about the Wiisomeone talks about the Wii being a downgraded PS2...

    wii is definately better then ps2 cause its around the xbox benchmark (which is better then ps2), but people have to remember the wii isnt a visual experience... although having said that, for such a high selling console the big N aren't really taking care of business on the gaming side of things... too many ports and tacked on controls, its not cool!

    imho, the only games i think are worthwhile so far are the godfather, raving rabbits (its just so damn funny!) and mario football, the rest are pretty average single player. as per all N consoles though, multiplayer in most games is still pretty fun (warioware, red steel etc)

    too bad if you dont have friends [​IMG]
