Blog – A Wii Christmas

I landed a Nintendo Wii with The Legend of Zelda: Twilight PrincessRayman: Raving Rabbids and Elebits. I also received Brain Boost: Gamma Wave for the DS and the Halo 3 faceplate for my Xbox 360. GrrlGotGame’s stocking was stuffed with Lumines II for the PSP, and Xander’s grandparents sent him a dance pad that doesn’t hook up to the TV but gently introduces him to the concept of DDR:

A few quick impressions:

  • Rayman is addictive. The minigames are varied and uneven, but the rhythm game is fun and easy to pick up by even the rhythmically challenged (ergo, me) and the plunger shooting game never gets old
  • Elebits reminds me of Katamari Damacy in that it has timed missions and you interact with household items; it’s fun but not earth-shatteringly so
  • Zelda so far is quite compelling and the only Wii game that plays widescreen with my component cables – but the graphic resolution is as substandard as folks have been reporting
  • Brain Boost is pretty limited and repetitive; I’d be sure you have Brain Age and Brain Academy before resorting to this series
  • The bonus Halo theme that comes with the Halo 3 faceplate isn’t all that, but the faceplate is nice particularly if your 360 is set on its side
  • I haven’t played Lumines II yet, but it’s been glued to GrrlGotGame’s PSP so I have to assume it’s pretty great

So, how did the holidays treat you? Any surprises? What’s the best game you’ve played this season? Me, I’m lost in Oblivion but taking time out to explore the Wii…
