    Hey everyone! I have been torn between these two games ever since heard of them both.
    As far as Zack and Wiki go i really love challenging puzzles. I also heard it makes amazing use of the wii remote. Adventure puzzle games have always been fun to me. I am currently taking my time enjoying every minute of LOZ PH.But i find myself short on time due to school, and I wonder if i will have the time to sink my teeth into the adv.
    The plus sides to MOH is I am a FPS person too. I love pc and wii shooters and with online i figure replay value will be fantastic. Plus i will have the ablity to jump in and out of games which will be great due to my busy schedule. But i am doubting its quality, i would hate to have a horrible online exp.
    So which one do you think guys?

    I'd say go for Medal of Honor because it has many game modes which should give it a good replay value.

    Wow, very tough decision. I would personally go with Zack and Wiki because I have a 360 for all of my online fps needs, but if you don't have a 360 I'd go with MoH, but remember to wait out until you see some reviews. You never know what the final products will look like.

    i say rent zack and wiki, play through it on the weekend, and buy Medal of Honor. you should definately play both, but MoH will give you better replay value.

    MOHH2 will be the best shooter on the Wii to date, but it has no voicechat, and it may very well have a limited audience (Wii60 players do, like nic, have better FPS options and a better online system). I doubt EA will invest as much promoting EA Canada's games as they have advertising Airborne, which means fewer players, a more difficult time putting together matches in off hours and after the game gets a little old (3 months?), and less overall replay value than you'd expect from a game whose main selling point is online multiplayer. EA Canada did a great job, but the deck is stacked against them in a lot of ways. If there weren't so few FPS options, and if online multiplayer weren't so rare on the system, this game would be doomed.

    Zdub (Zack and Wiki) is supposed to be a great, unique experience, and it doesn't matter how many people buy, it'll be the same experience whether it achieves sales success or not. It's not as risky a purchase as Heroes 2 is.

    You gotta do what's best for you, but FYI, if Free Radical (TS4's developer) sees that Wii owners won't buy the best FPS on the system to date, why would would they put TS4 on the Wii? Some of the dev team is interested in the system, but at the end of the day, which platforms to go for is a business decision.

    I'll probably end up getting both, but I would go for Z&W first, from what I heard it sounds amazing.

    personally i have never owned a computer which works for games or 360 (i have both) with online capabilities.

    so this will be the first chance i have to own an online Fps.

    i have played some before but not for long

    I would definitely choose MoH from those two choices.

    I don't think free radical is like that, i have seen on their site how much people want this on wii, and i think they will understand that their product will sell better than just another WW2 game. Also, regardless if we get TS4, I am fairly confident we will get SOME timesplitters game, and chances are by te time it comes out, whether its a port or not, it will have onlne and voice chat. patience is a virtue.

    i dont think FR would talk up wii so much on their site and then not release anything on it.

    the only reason i would get moh is if it had really good multiplayer, and i know for sure that zach and wiki will own (from the recent ign podcast). the zach and wiki review will be on ign in about 1-2 days so you should check it out..
    i will get zach and wiki for sure and think overall it will be a better game from what i have seen and heard, but i will check the reviews out for moh. the 1 player will be pretty shallow i think so unless it has good multiplayer i wont be getting it, the game also seems a little bit rushed.

    I would get MOH2 when it releases and get Z&W later.
    They are both great games but they each satisfy a different part of my gaming addiction... or um 'hobby'

    It seems like MOH2 will offer deep control customizations and host their own servers thru EA which means no friend codes needed. So its gonna be some crazy 32 player online goodness with that.

    While Z&W will offer a very sweet and complete single player game that looks to really utilize the wiimote into fun and challenging puzzles. Either way you will be happy but I personally will be getting both :)

    Like what? You don't think they have bosses and a limited supply of funds?

    I've seen two individual Free Radical programmers talk about being interested in the Wii and its controls. I haven't heard them go on about how much they really want TS4 on the Wii. Care to provide a link?

    I'm hopeful that Free Radical will see the Wii's scarcity of shooters as an opportunity, and that they won't be discouraged by failures of other games in the genre, but that hope and a dollar is worth a dollar. I've been watching this game's progress since August, and it could be the best title on the console if they bring it.

    If Nintendo had half a brain, they'd go to Free Radical and offer to publish it (I think both ubisoft and EA have published past TS games) and invest in it in exchange for some system exclusivity (a year +). But then Nintendo doesn't have any of their brainpower devoted to people like us, so I'm not holding my breath.
