Dare to Play the Game

Posted in: Dare to Play the Game, News and Opinions by Michael Durr on December 9th, 2009

Michael Durr has been reviewing movies for the better part of fifteen years now. He primarily enjoys thrillers, sci-fi, animation and even a little courtroom drama. His favorite films include Escape from New York, the Goonies and anything with Alyssa Milano. When he’s not praising Kurt Russell as the greatest actor of our time or scratching his head over a David Lynch flick, he’s spending time at home in Texas with his lovely wife, Lori and his amazing son. How they put up with him is a mystery, but even Basil Rathbone doesn’t have the time to solve that one.

    Third-party Wii games? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this is going to be a short list.

    Boom Blox – Awesome party game, one of the best for the system. You can probably find the first installment on the cheap.

    Zack & Wiki – Solid puzzle platformer. Has some “point & click” elements along the lines of a TellTale game.

    Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition – I know it’s a remake, but it’s a remake of one of the best titles from the last gen. The Wii controls actually improve on an already top-notch experience.

    Not really a 3rd party release, but since you failed to mention it in your column:

    Metroid Prime Trilogy – Prime 3 was completely epic, and you can now have all three games for the price of one.

    That should keep you busy for a while… 😉

    I was afraid of that. Hence why I asked. Zack & Wiki along with Boom Blox very much noted. I am doing a search on Ebay every few days but there is so much muck to go through, it’s hard to find anything.
