    Please help....problem opening a winrar game file :(

    i am new at these things and i just downloaded my first wii game(dead space extraction Ntsc) and it shows so many winrar files in the game folder.i open those files with winrar(trial version) and it got one big rar file in it when i extract. now i am trying to open that file and it says "the archive is either of unknown format or damaged". i don't know what to do..help...

    also i bought my wii in Australia and got it chipped in India. i heard from someone that i had risk of my wii getting bricked if i play downloaded games.
    so it it gonna brick my wii if i play ntsc games on pal wii.. can anyone tell me step by step what to do before i play the game on wii and make sure it doesnt brick my wii....
    cheers
