    We're all focusing a ton of SSBB and MP3, but i think Kororinpa: Marble Mania could be the most important game of them all.

    This game makes better use of the Wii's new control scheme than any other. You will scream and cuss at this game when you get to harder levels, but its not because of the controls! The controls are so tight you know the mistake was all your own.

    Unfortunately hardly anyone has this game. Its somewhat hard to find and gaming sites won't give it the time it deserves. Because of this It was hard to find a decent review - which I did here

    No one can deny that the game has immense creativity, wilnedd and colors and I love that sort of stuff in a game. However, this game is not exactly the Wiis savor although it is a decent game in my opinion.

    I loved this game. Now, my mother in law is loving it. Pretty soon it'll be passed on to my mother, now that my mother is starting to see how wonderful the wii is.

    I argue that there isnt one game that has better controls using the accelerometer. It is the only game that takes advantage of what makes the Wii-Remote special

    What, people aren't going ape over a marble game? I'm shocked! How can people ignore such blatantly important technology?

    So tell me the game that uses the Accelerometers in the Wiimote better than Kororinpa? Its kids like you that keep GOOD games from happening. Just because Mario isn't there it must suck right?

    Its amazing that the Wii can rotate such large complex polygons with no slowdown. Unless you've played the game you wont understand.

    I edited my first post to add a video so you can understand, scroll up.

    Here are a few extra Videos

    I appreciate how this game makes full use of the wii remote's accelerometer; however, I just don't think I would have the patience to play this.

    I have actually played this game and well its good fun and frustrating in a good way annndd even though its cheaper than most games I would never buy it myself. It feels like a game that belongs alongside the likes of Space Cadet Pinball and Spider Solitare, fun little time waster that you'll play every now and again.

    This is great to hear as on it's way to me from the online game rental service as we speak. i do see how as it gets harder it will test your patience though.

    Wow I got to 100 posts since march

    It's just the same thing over and over, Just a different ball and a different level, There has to be something that makes it different, Like on Halo or something yeah the levels are the same online but your playing different people all the times and it makes it a different experience...

    It doesn't really matter that it uses the accelerometer best anyway. That's not quite enough. The great games are going to need to use the remote well but also give us a more "complete" game. A marble game is just too basic no matter how well it's executed to get mass appeal.

    Dude, I'm not gonna watch your extra videos because... well, because I don't care. I'm sure it's fun, and i'm not doubting your belief that it uses the accelerometer well. It could be a blast, but it looks like something you'd find on addictinggames.com, and that's just not gonna impress 99% of the gamers in the world. I don't see how you can argue against that, it's practically a law of the gaming world. People would rather play a crappy shooter or RPG on the 360 than a marble game. Truth? Truth.

    I have this game and I loved it as well. Even my parents, who are not gamers, tried it out and loved it. Its an all-around fun game.
