    Been waiting a long time for this game, sadly I can't play it as I fudged my TV remote and there is no button on the TV that switches to AV-2 mode to play games.

    Anyhoo give it a try people, trailer:

    looks interesting but I'm not really a fan of 3D platformers :/ I guess they seem kinda dated...

    I thought this would get more replies since the game is pretty highly anticipated.

    @Hadrian. You can get a universal remote for pretty cheap. I really hope this game lives up to your hype. I'll try it out when it gets here.

    I've got 4 of those, work with other TV's, DVD etc but not on this one. I have ordered a replacement anyway, cost me £9.99 dammit.

    As I said in the other thread, my expectations are only that it'll be a good game that I can waste a lot of time on. I'm not expecting something even close to Mario Galaxy but maybe perhaps close to Rayman 2 N64/Dreamcast.

    So wait, this game is good? Name makes it sound like just another shovelware game.
    EDIT: Not to mention the logo is kinda shovelwareish.

    Not at all, this version is the only one out there nd its been in development since early 2007.
    Most reviews rate it highly.

    It's shovelware because it's a game that's trying to attempt to become a platforming.

    That does not make sense. Are you saying that Mario Galaxy was shovelware because it was a platformer. I am actually enjoying the return of the platforming genre on the wii. Quite a few are coming out and some look quite good.

    Please google the term shovelware, you'll see what you did wrong there.


    There has been some more reviews for this, most are giving it high 8s and 9s but one or two give it lower than 5! The ones that rate it lower those do tend to not rate Wii games much anyway. Getting my replacement TV remote tomorrow so I'll get to play this...if it works on a BL.
