And what's with the Wii Sports scores? EGM doesn't believe in fun.

Shane reviewed Zelda for EGM? According to 1up Yours, he's only in the second or third dungeon as of this past Friday. I can't imagine he saw much of the game at all in time to make this print deadline. Or is there another Shane?

It was better than MK64...but MK64 was a piece of shit. I played a lot of DKR time trial to unlock TT but the game isn't a classic by any means. The idea of Rare doing a kart game, again, based on Viva Pinata, is painful.

Goldeneye was their best game, easily.

If Rare is going to make a kart racing game, which they would be stupid not to, I doubt it would just be Viva Pinata kart racing. They have a pretty extensive list of original characters. Use Conker, some fuzzy cute versions of KI characters, Banjo, the Pinatas, Kameo, Dark, anything else I may be missing. It would be a lot more interesting.

2008: Halo Wars is due; is Gears of War as well? When is the Peter Jackson project due?

The Wiisports score is low enough that it makes the rest of thier scores seem farcical.

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.

I got Madden 07 for the Wii and I disagree with the scores entirely. The controls are very intuitive and the game has all the features the X360 version is sorely missing. Gameplay wise, it is a refreshing Madden and will probably hold me over for quite some time.

Why not? The NFL can negotiate a contract with several publishers similar to NBA and end up getting more money than they are currently receiving from EA....

I also heard some at EA are none too happy with the terms of the contract and they may opt not to renew it when it expires...
