The official Nintendo of Europe website for Another Code: R - A Journey into Lost Memories, including game information, screenshots, videos, interviews, a tv commercial and more! When Another Code: Two Memories (Trace Memory in the US) was released on the Nintendo DS back in 2005, it put Nintendo's then-fledgling handheld to work in some pleasingly inventive ways while telling an interesting story. Sadly its Wii-exclusive sequel, Another Code R: A Journey Into Lost Memories, isn't nearly as innovative and, though it's beautifully presented, moves at such a glacial pace that only the most hardened adventurers will see it through. Set two years after the events of Two Memories, Another Code R's story once again revolves around heroine Ashley Mizuki Robbins. Ashley, now aged 16, journeys to Lake Juliet to visit her father, whom she rescued from Blood Edward Island in the first game. Upon arrival, Ashley's dormant memories soon spring back to life, and you must uncover the mysteries surrounding her mother's death and find the truth behind Project Another. Another Code R plays much like a traditional 2D point-and-click adventure, but its characters and backgrounds are rendered in 3D.
Birthday Party Bash is a Wii exclusive featuring 20 birthday games and 10 party theme rooms. I received the Birthday Party Bash Wii game by 2K Play 3 weeks ago. Played the game during our Games Day which is on the 1st August 2009 to celebrate the end of our internship! Birthday Party Bash as the name suggest is extremely suitable to be played during birthday parties as the focus of the whole game will be on the birthday boy or girl. When you start the game, you will get to choose 3 options, Custom Party, Quick Party or Free Play. Since I am hosting the games day at my house and reviewing the game, I was arrowed to be the birthday boy. We choose Custom Party play mode because we want to be able to customize our birthday party. We can choose from 10 different types of Birthday Party themes.
After getting passed over by 2007's stellar Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Wii owners get their first shot at the revitalized series with Call of Duty: World at War. Though World at War treads the familiar ground of World War II, the detailed, realistic locations and dramatic story elements make this trip to the past feel fresh. The remote and Nunchuk perform admirably in combat, despite a few missteps, and the well-tuned weapons make firefights intense and satisfying. Add in the engaging multiplayer system that made Modern Warfare a smash hit, and you've got one of the best shooters available for the Wii. There are a number of great components in Call of Duty: World at War, but none of them would work without the fully capable control scheme. You move with the analog stick and aim by pointing the remote. As a handy aid to newcomers and veterans alike, there are plenty of options to tweak various sensitivities and movement speeds. In the default control scheme, you pull the B trigger to fire and use the Z button to look down your sights, which is a crucially important ability, especially in multiplayer.
A series of unsolvable crimes dubbed The Vanishing Files have paralyzed the city. The answers are at the tip of your fingers as you seek, searach and discover with the Wii Remote. Help Cate compile evidence, track down hideouts, and discover the link between these crimes and an unsolved mystery from her past!
The official website of Cursed Mountain from Deep Silver, the fascinating and scary survival-horror game in high altitude for Wii. It's cold in the Himalayas--damned cold. The chill fills your lungs as you desperately search the mountain for the leftover canisters of oxygen you need to survive. And as you draw rattling breaths with burning lungs, you desperately defend yourself from hostile spirits hovering between this world and the next. This is the world of Cursed Mountain, where the frigid air will chill you to the bone, and your inner eye draws secret runes into clear view. This slow-paced survival horror game is not just the tale of a vertigo-inducing climb up the side of a Tibetan mountain, but a fascinating and surprisingly authentic examination of Buddhist rituals and the Sherpas who populate the region. Even when compared to other horror games, Cursed Mountain moves at a slow tempo, so if you need to be consistently engaged with hot action or thoughtful puzzles, this is not the game for you. And even if you do appreciate measured exploration and storytelling, you'll not likely appreciate the unresponsive motion controls.
Dead Rising is an action-adventure, survival horror video game with RPG elements developed by Capcom and produced by Keiji Inafune. Impressive graphics and excellent sound effects. Hundreds of zombies on-screen and the framerate barely stutters. Massive variety of weapons to annihilate the undead with. Lots of bonus objectives that are good for achievements and add to the replay value. The story is pretty good with lots of twists. Voice acting is well done for the most part.
Dead Space Extraction is a prequel that reveals the events leading up to Isaac Clarke's mission on the USG Ishimura in Visceral Games' award-winning Dead Space.

Death Jr.: Root of Evil takes on a whole new level of challenge and fun on the Wii, offering dual-weapon attack modes that give players complete control of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk in melee and ranged combat. With over 45 varieties of enemies, players will have their skills tested while swinging at nearby enemies in melee combat with the enhanced motion sensing on the Wii Remote using DJ's famed scythe or Pandora's whip. The versatility of the Wii Remote allows for precision targeting with active aiming to shoot down airborne, burrowing, distant or close combat enemies, and players can also unlock new attack combos, and build and upgrade projectile weapons. The intuitive camera system takes full advantage of the Wii Remote for direct, full-3D camera pointing and control for exploration.

One may wonder why Nintendo would add motorcycles and dirt bikes to the game series that popularized, if not invented, the genre of weapons-based go-kart racing. If you're one of the fans who balked at the inclusion of two-wheeled vehicles, a midair stunt system, and motion controls, rest assured that despite these changes, Mario Kart Wii is still very much the game that you have come to love over the years. But even if you haven't been on the receiving end of a blue shell before, the extensive multiplayer options, deeply integrated online functionality, multitude of controller schemes available, and simple gameplay make this latest Mario Kart great fun and quite possibly the most accessible one ever. The main event of Mario Kart is the Grand Prix mode, which in this version pits you against 11 other computer-controlled competitors in a race to the finish on a four-course cup event. Grand Prix lets you select from three different engine sizes/difficulty settings, and there are initially four cups available, with four more that are unlockable by conquering their predecessors.
Nintendo unveiled a range of new titles for the Wii this morning at its annual E3 press conference, including New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and Golden Sun DS. However, Nintendo US president Reggie Fils-Aime shocked the audience with one final reveal towards the closing moments. A new Metroid game is in the works, and the publisher is collaborating with Tecmo's Team Ninja to bring Metroid: Other M to the Nintendo Wii in 2010. Other M features the Samus Aran that fans love. However, the game's presentation and story look like quite a departure from Retro Studio's three previous Metroid Prime titles.

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles for the Wii marks the latest in a string of efforts to use the heavily atmospheric settings and gruesome undead abominations from Capcom's number-one survival horror franchise for the purposes of a point-and-shoot action game. It's also the most successful, due to a number of factors, including a more intuitive control scheme and more authentic locations. Umbrella Chronicles has the texture of a Resident Evil game, but it still basically handles like an arcade light-gun game. This means it's easy to pick up, but it's also got a fair share of tired genre conventions. Still, there are some exciting moments, and the Resident Evil minutiae it contains should thrill fans.

From the moment you turn on Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and are informed that the game 'plays you as much as you play it,' it's evident that you're in for something quite different. Indeed, this is not the Silent Hill you may have come to expect. The fog, rust, and awkward combat of the past have been replaced by snow, ice, and lots of terrified running. Developer Climax Studios has reinvented the aging franchise for the better by removing the tedium, as well as going back to the basics of strong, psychological storytelling and intense, chilling atmosphere. Regardless of how you feel about previous Silent Hill games, Shattered Memories is a fresh and welcome new beginning that's good for a scare.
