    So now we have a Simple Wii series too?

    I mean seriously, does Nintendo have any sort of quality filter?

    Based on how many Horsez, Ponyz, Dogz, Catz, Hamsterz & Bratz games there are, I'd say yes.

    The "Simple" series uses 1 engine ? I read somewhere they are trying to improve the games so it ain't all bargain bin crap.

    i had a lot of fun with some of these games on the PS2. oh, the "giant woman game" is called The Daibijin, IIRC. you flew a helicopter trying to kill a 40ft tall bikini clad blonde on a rampage through the city. not a great game by any measure, but still good for a few minutes of button mashing fun. the puzzle games were pretty good, too. not likely any of these will get a localization. at least, they haven't so far.

    actually a lot of them have been localised, on the PS2 at least. and a few on the DS. Mostly just in Europe though.

    Yeah. Europe gets a tons of boxed PC games we either don't here, or download-only in the US. Sonic Adventure DX, Guilty Gear X2 #Reload, Dynasty Warriors 4 Hyper, Billy Hatcher, Crazy Taxi 3, Mega Man X8 etc.

    Of course they're English so most will run fine on our Windows editions.

    Yeah. they are nice little games really. Nothing special, but for the price (usually £15 or less in supermarkets) you can't really complain.

    Plus the series gave us Global Defence Force, GDF Tactics and Earth Defence Force 2017 which are just amazing in spite of their very limited budgets.

    Yes it works on PAL [​IMG]

    I've played it for 2 hours by now and i think it's a good game. Ok, it looks like a Dreamcast or even a N64 game and cornering sometimes is pretty hard but it makes a lot of fun, i like it.
