I had the original on ps2 ,but i got rid of my ps2 because i never played it between my Wii ,and 360. So when it came out on Wii i bought it day one because i loved the original.
To me the game is every bit as good as the original. Its a good action game ,and doesn't force motion controls on ya.
I like the games that leave the motion controls for special things not for everything.
Death Jr was another game good for that your special attacks were mapped to motions ,but the main was the B button. So it felt satisfying to beat on the guy with the B button then just take a nice swing to finish him off.
