    Games I bought

    The games were--
    World Sports Competition
    Moto Roader
    Sonic the Hedgehog 3

    I bought the first two because I already had one classic controller and 4 gamecube controllers and wanted to be able to play 5 player games. (I didn't buy Bomberman since I already have Jetters.)

    Perhaps they will grow on me. Sonic is probably a good game--haven't played it much yet (has anyone noticed that Donkey Kong Jungle Beat is a very similar game to Sonic?)

    Note all three get good reviews. In fact, the two 5-player games were the best reviewed of all the 5-player games except Bomberman.

    I had bought Super Mario Bros. previously and absolutely love it....

    Has anyone looked at some of the reviews out there for VC games like at Gamespot.com? They gave Metroid a 5 out of 10. Several other VC games they have reviewed they gave them really low scores in comparison to what I would have given them.

    Gamespot gave Zelda TP a 8.9 out of 10. Their reason? It's more of the old game mechanics modernized. They will give any game a low score that's old school with modern graphics. They are also huge FPS fans. They gave games like Halo 2, and Bioschock insanely high scores when lined up against games like Final Fantasy. They also don't have the guts to rate games a 1 out of 10, no matter how bad they can be. Gundamn for the PS3, or Super Man Returns should have recieved -1 out of 10.

    It's a simple formula. Rate hype games high, good games between 7-9, and bad games 4-6. Almost never venture near perfect scores of 10, and lower scores of 1. this allows them to take the safe middle ground and offend fewer people. Corporate BS at it's best.

    Very true. The 1 - 10 system is borked anyways, since by that scale 5 should be an average game in a completely playable condition, but they usually rate that type of game as a 6.5 - 7. :/ I try not to pay attention to the numbers, but whenever you see a game site/magazine that uses a 1-10 scale (or worse yet, a 1-100 scale!) you know they're kissing some body's ass.

    Oh, and about those games. Which site gave them good reviews? Sonic is a winner, no doubt about it, but all the reviews I've seen for the other two are mediocre at best.

    True. Gamespot will probably be one of the websites that gives Halo a perfect 10 where 9 out of the 10 points will be awarded for fanboyism. BTW, perfect 10 ratings shouldn't exist anyway. Every game has its flaws and moreso, reviews are highly subjective. Unless Halo 3 is radically changed, it will be the "same old school game with modern graphics", well, not that old school.

    Are there any sites dedicated to consumer game reviews?

    stuffisgd,

    check gamefaqs.com. It's not just for walkthroughs, it allows users to give in-depth reviews of the games they play.

    I wish I could return the Wii Browser personally... It was fun until I figured out it's Flash 7, but besides just that I never really use it. Oh well, it's only 500 points.
