    Game Reviews: Top 10-5, 2008

    (Note: I write the reviews myself and get the Top 10 list and ratings from IGN.com: Video Games, Cheats, Movies and More.)

    10) Animal Crossing Wii
    Pros- Some genuinely amusing dialog and characters, Stocking the town museum is satisfying, Great fun to play in short bursts.
    Cons- A few characters repeat the same dialog ad infinitum, Dearth of new content, Date and time dictate your progression.
    Critic Rating- 7.4
    My Rating- 8.0

    9) Boom Blox
    Pros-Hundreds of puzzles, Strong competitive and co-op multiplayer, Level creator adds a ton of replay value.
    Cons-Shooting gallery and escort-style levels dilute the fun, Story and characters are embarrassingly bad, Can be repetitive.
    Critic Rating- 8.5
    My Rating- 8.3

    8) Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
    Pros- Moving, intense story that will excite fans and nonfans alike, Powerful physics engine lets you execute all sorts of awesome-looking moves
    Cons- Swinging your remote and Nunchuk around gets old fast, The camera can't keep up, and you get limited control of it, Stiff animations and low-fidelity sound compression dampen the story, short and frustrating.
    Critic Rating- 7.0
    My Rating- 7.8

    7) Wii Fit
    Pros- Balance board is a great new peripheral, Exercises will help your balance and strength, Beats the repetitiveness of going to the gym, Some fun balance board games, Pleasant presentation throughout.
    Cons- No way to create your own exercise program, You're forced to unlock most of the activities, Some games are rather shallow, Health and fitness assessments can be problematic, Board is sensitive, but you can still cheat at exercises.
    Critic Rating-8.5
    My Rating - 8.5

    6) Call of Duty: World at War
    Pros- Gritty, exciting story, Engaging online multiplayer, Well-mapped control system, Detailed, immersive environments
    Cons-Some control hang-ups, Limited online multiplayer modes, Terrible 2 player co-op (both on 1 screen, don't like it)
    Critic Rating- 8.2
    My Rating- 8.6

    5) World of Goo
    Pros-Brilliant design loaded with gameplay depth, Varied levels sporting wide-ranging objectives and different types of goo, Quirky, surreal sense of humor, Fantastic, atmospheric soundtrack.
    Cons- Wii Remote controls can't always keep up with the action, visuals aren't as vibrant as they could be, given the cartoony premise.
    Critic Rating- 9.0
    My Rating- 8.6

    Top 4-1 Coming soon.

    Game Reviews: Top 4-1, 2008

    Game Reviews: Top 4-1

    4) The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
    Pros- Compelling characters and story, outstanding world and puzzle design, longer than most action adventure games, terrific graphics, from an artistic perspective.
    Cons- Wii-specific elements feel tacked on, graphics and sound sometimes go from nostalgic to dated.
    Critic Rating- 9.0
    My Rating- 9.2

    3) Mario Kart Wii
    Pros- Huge number of courses, including some of the most imaginative yet, Deeply integrated online play, Easy to jump into for players of any skill level Fun and strategic trick system, Motorcycles provide a great alternative to go-karts.
    Cons- Nostalgia doesn't save most of the classic courses from being boring, Items are more unbalanced than ever, especially on new tracks, Battle modes are now exclusively team-based and timed.
    Critic Rating- 8.2
    My Rating- 9.3

    2) Super Mario Galaxy
    Pros- Some of the best level designs of any 3D platformer, Beautiful, colorful graphics, Controls work just about flawlessly in nearly every situation, Soundtrack is a delight, Lots of stages and tons of stars to find and collect.
    Cons- A couple of Mario's special suits can be frustrating to use, Minimal amount of story doesn't tie everything together especially well.
    Critic Rating- 9.7
    My Rating- 9.5

    and now the #1 Wii game of the year isssssssssss....................

    .
    ************************************************** ********

    1) Super Smash Bros. Brawl
    Pros- Relatively lag-free online multiplayer, The ability to share game replays, screenshots, and custom levels with friends, A massive yet surprisingly balanced character roster, Tons of ways to customize your matches, A lengthy single-player adventure mode.
    Cons- Some of the platforming stages in Subspace Emissary could have been done without, Custom levels can't be used in online matches, sometimes takes long to connect to other players online.
    Critic Rating- 9.8
    My Rating- 9.9

    First off good job on the reviews, but may I ask why they are in two different threads?

    Ca Best game ever

    I dont know about the rest of you but I am the biggest fan of FINAL FANTASY!!!!! I suggest everyone try out FF's My Life As A King.
    Now I will admit it is a but repetative and well you cant go out and fight like in the original FF's but the game play and story make up for that in a big way.
    Also it is fairly inexpensive. 1500 wii points to down load and the upgrades are really not a reqwuirement to complete the game. (but are fun to have!!)
    So if you havent tried it yet give it a shot I think I spent about 80+ hours now playing and I am still at it!!
