Born for Wii: Star Wars Republic Commando (page 2)

Republic Commando drops you into the helmet of a crack Clone Trooper during the period of galactic strife known as the Clone Wars. Instead of developing a traditional story with a super powered hero who singlehandedly saves the galaxy, Lucasarts took a smarter route. Republic Commando focuses on a f...

Born for Wii: Star Wars Republic Commando (page 3)

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 set the bar for shooter controls on the Wii, and Wiimote pointing is ideal for Republic Commando's command system. By taking cues from its predecessors and retaining the feel of the original game, Republic Commando can make the transition and ...

Born for Wii: Star Wars Republic Commando

Star Wars games have a tough time. With a few exceptions, they generally end up steaming piles of bantha fodder. For every Knights of the Old Republic or Rogue Squadron there's a Super Bombad Racing or Revenge of the Sith. Still, each console generation manages to grab hold of a few shining stars of...

Born for Wii: Cubivore

Some games are a little out there. You've got your No More Heroes brand of weirdness, where collecting coconuts is as commonplace as mass murder and sexual innuendo. On another level, there's Katamari Damacy, where rolling entire cities into a ball is a perfectly acceptable way to repair the cosmos....

Born for Wii: Cubivore (page 2)

Though the game's original Japanese title, Animal Leader, hints at the ultimate goal in Cubivore, its domestic name provides a slightly more apt description of what you can expect to be doing.

Plenty of games from last gen looked far better, s...

Multiplayer For some people, Contra is all about memorizing patterns, honing skills to a razor's edge and clearing brutal levels without taking a scratch. For me, it's all about the multiplayer. For some people, it's probably about both of those things. But whatever your preference, it's hard to den...

Born for Wii: Contra

As gaming moves forward, the perpetual improvement of technology naturally leads to the Gears of War 2 creed: "Bigger, Better, and More Badass." Unfortunately, the trend of increasingly film-like 3D games leads to fewer and fewer 2D titles finding their way to home consoles. Many series, such as Zel...

Born for Wii: Grim Fandango

If spending your existence selling travel packages to the dregs of society sounds like a peculiar form of Hell, that's because it is -- quite literally. For Manny Calavera, life-after-death in the Land of the Dead is little more than a series of disappointing clients and missed opportunities. But th...
