I'm sure it's a better at launch, not omg for all time. Doesn't that only make sense?

Even though it is the best game that I have played this year. Countless people are totally in love with Wii Sports and it is a new paradigm in gaming. EGM can't understand that and it reveals their immature mindset.

So how did you play and finish Resistance if you won't buy a PS3?

My dvd player works great and the blueray format might wind up being obsolete in a year.

There was a similar article 5 years ago in their XBOX vs. GC issue. No surprise. People want to read about it, so they'll write about it.

What if I we assume someone doesn't like Animal Crossing, or want to play it? Would Animal Crossing be the only way to actually get access to these shirts and accessories then? They might as well release a "Mii clothing" pack for download or something. But I guess this will ensure more money made for them...even though they could just charge money for a download.

Viva Pinata games should cater to fans of the show, to be honest. Otherwise it's a complete waste of an IP.

EGM just did themselves is. Most fun I've had with a game in YEARS. I dont pay attention to scores, but thats just assinine.

But their score is not at all out of line with most media outlets, as you can see right here. Many major media outlets gave the game similarly low score, and the game has a 77% average. It's nice that you have the stomach for feature-deprived, shallow, gimmicky (and often problematic) sports mini-games, but it doesn't mean everyone else has to.

Both PS3 and Wii should be ashamed about their launches.

But, as I always say, launches always suck ass and mean nothing in the long-term.

WiiSports is awesome, when you really get into it like I did with golf the other day, wishing to keep topping your previous score and learning how it all works it turns into a very fun experience. If you just look at the surface, not much is there, but you have to give it more than a chance than just "golf lol"

Granted it hasn't provided me hours of entertainment, but it's a great game to break boredom with.

Yeah, that is really rediculous..... a PS2 port is better then a 360 game (even if it is basically COD2.5)

COD3 is still a very good game.

Right, I understand how insignificant launch games really are and both systems should be applauded for each having a AAA game, but everything else just seemed to be typical launch crap. I expected that from the PS3 launch games, but not the Wii so it's strange to see that happen

Rumors
-Mii Crossing - Mii's will be your avatar in the next Animal Crossing. All the shirts and accessories you collect will cross over to other games.

This had better not be that one time when EGM's right. It just better not. Partially because Miis are a bad fit for the Animal Crossing universe, but mostly because the very idea of only being able to get Mii accessories from Animal Crossing is stupidly devious.

but it was a game FIRST. it's a game ip, that was licensed to be made into a show.

the show fails to reach the audience that the game appeals to... not the other way around. it's not like microsoft or rare paid for the IP. it's their ip to do with what they want.

And that's about right. It's not an AAA title, nor is it bad. I'd put it around an A (80% myself). The EGM scores are low.
