    its funny how publishers are still doing the "lets make cover look less kiddy and more badass and nothing like the game"

    well at least its not as bad as the original megaman

    Son-Son is a Sun Wukong Knock-off, and this is also based on Sun Wukong ...

    Thnx Hadrian for the video.

    That looks pretty fun actually. Could do a lot less on the dialogue, though.

    `twas more than enough to convince me to try it.

    You got to be kidding!!!! I watched that movie and suddenly I can't believe this is 2008!! IT almost looks like a SNES game! This should have been released as Wiiware. As a full game this is an insult!

    *yawn*

    How has the movie got anything to do with this, what so ever?

    The legend is at least 1,300 years old ... and there have been dozens upon dozens of book, film and televeision adaptations prior to that Chan/Li train wreck ...

    I think he means he watched the video. [​IMG]
    Anyway, I wouldn't say SNES, but yeah, it does not look 2008 at all... which doesn't bother me as a matter of fact. [​IMG]

    Hmm, who would of thought the Wii would become such a good old-school shooter platform. Well I for one welcome variety and enjoy a good old blast every now and again.. so downing.

    Yes, I know they're based on the same story. But still looks too much like Dragon Ball. The resemblance is blatant in this case.
