    You're welcome. I enjoy compiling lists like this. In fact, I had created a spreadsheet in the late 1990s with all of the magazine and web site review scores for Nintendo 64 games. Every month, I'd update the spreadsheet with new games and scores. This was years before anything like Metacritic, Gamestats, or Gamerankings existed. I worked at a video game store at the time, so I had free access to every video game publication out there.

    Cool. Before Ninjabread Man was released, I looked at some screenshots and it looked like it'd be a fun, silly, enjoyable game. However, the reviews state the game isn't even worth $20. D'oh!

    I just updated the top 25 Wii games list in the original post. Reviews are beginning to trickle in for NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams and it has received an 8.1 overall so far, so I added it to the list. I hope the rest of the reviews are as positive!

    If anyone buys it tomorrow and plays it, let us know how it is.

    UPDATE: A few more NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams reviews are in and its overall score has gotten a bit lower (7.4). It's still not bad and there are plenty more reviews still to come.

    I've read some user reviews for Puzzle Quest and they've pretty much said they've completely ruined this game when they ported it over to Wii. The controls are supposed to be bad and people are having trouble reading the text. Since I don't have a DS or PSP I'm wondering about the PS2 version. Maybe I should just wait until I get a 360.

    That's weird. So far, the reviews for the Wii version of Puzzle Quest are a 7.3 overall, which is pretty good. I haven't played it though.

    Yeah, IGN gave it a 7 but says, "At $30, the Wii version of Puzzle Quest is the most expensive out there. But it looks, sounds, and controls worse than versions that cost half that."

    Reviews on Amazon have been a lot harder on the game giving it 1 and 2 star ratings because of it.

    I just added a new game to the worst 25 Wii games list in the original post:

    The Golden Compass

    Congratulations to Shiny Entertainment for developing this piece of garbage and to Sega for publishing it.

    I added The History Channel: Battle for the Pacific to the worst 25 Wii games list.

    No More Heroes is starting to receive great reviews, but I want to wait for a few more scores before I add it to the top 25 list.

    I'm waiting for no more heros game looks pretty solid, and I've only read encouraging things. I 've wanted to play killer 7 for awhile but haven't picked a copy up yet..

    Killer 7 certainly has an interesting story and the graphics are lovely, but I'm not totally sold on the gameplay.

    But No More Heroes looks like it'll be more of a traditional game, and I like what I've read from the designers saying that they're going to use motion controls but they're not going overboard with them.

    I updated both lists in the original post and extended them from 25 to 30.

    I'm watching a few new/upcoming games that might be very good:

    No More Heroes
    Samurai Warriors Katana
    Nitrobike
    Bomberman Land
    Super Swing Golf Season 2
    Cars Mater-National
    Asterix at the Olympic Games

    Any thoughts or impressions? I'll give them some more time to see how their scores average out.


    I also added three games to the worst 30 Wii games list:

    M&M's Kart Racing
    Counter Force
    Kidz Sports Basketball

    EDIT: IGN just reviewed Indianapolis 500 Legends and gave it a decent score, so it's off the worst 30 Wii games list for now, but just barely. I'll be watching for any new reviews though.

    I saw a used copy of Killer 7 for the GameCube for $6 at GameStop, but didn't buy it. I should have. If I see another one, I will.

    No More Heroes should be great. Twelve more days...

    The local EB has new copies of the PS2 version Killer 7 for $10.

    For those games on your watchlist, I wouldn't hold out too much hope for Samurai Warriors Katana, since it's basically a FPS version of Dynasty Warriors. Unless the formula is radically changed, those games have been getting bad-to-average reviews for the past couple of years.

    Asterix at the Olympic Games? Oy. So we need two cartoony collections of olympic-themed minigames? I don't expect this to do to well either.

    I expect No More Heroes to be rated highly unless it's really screwed up. There's a lack of mature and free-roaming games on the Wii (excepting the ports of existing ones form last gen like Scarface) and given the pedigree, I'm sure the fanboys out there will be gushing about it.

    Nitrobike looks kind of generic, but there's a lack of good racing games on the Wii, and if it uses a control style similar to Excite Truck, it might do well.

    The first Dynasty Warriors was fun, but after that it got so repetive that to me, it was like "Oh no another one"

    I just added No More Heroes to the Top 30 Wii Games list in the original post. Who else is buying it tomorrow?

    Based on reviews so far, it seems like Samurai Warriors Katana and Nitrobike turned out to be average. However, Super Swing Golf Season 2 and Endless Ocean turned out to be quite good...almost good enough to make it on the list.

    No More Heroes just bumped Metal Slug Anthology off the list! Right now, it would be ranked number 31.

    Speaking of GT Pro Series, it was just bumped off the worst Wii games list by Ultimate Board Game Collection.

    There's a $5 off coupon for any Wii game at EB's website, but I think it's for online orders only.

    I'll probably end up picking up NMH sometime this week. It's nice to see a new Wii game that's not a mini-game collection or recycled content from other systems. Plus I'm a sandbox game geek, and I really like the visual style of this...

    Yes, it is.

    And that EB card might not be worth anything. I know a lot of store gift cards will start deducting a monthly "serivce charge" if they haven't been used within a year.

    I want to buy No More Heroes, but I just bought Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure at Best Buy for $29.99 instead. I couldn't resist. While I was there, I bought Endless Ocean for $29.99 as well.

    I'll post my impressions within the next few days, but based on its reviews, I'd say go to Best Buy and buy Zack & Wiki while it's cheap:

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1188561459815

    You can even check the in-store availability so you don't waste a trip.


    Actually, I just checked Amazon.com and the price is $29.99 there, too:

    http://www.amazon.com/Zack-Wiki-Ques...1146618&sr=8-1


    The price must've just been lowered today because yesterday it was $39.99 on both web sites.
