    Don't you just LOVE the perpetual disappointments that are the games for the Wii. Like clockwork, it seems like almost every game that comes out for the Wii ends up being a turd, with only the rare gem (pretty much just 1st party games) being squeezed out.

    Soul Calibur Legends - 6.0

    http://wii.ign.com/articles/837/837799p1.html


    High School Musical: Sing It! - 6.6

    http://wii.ign.com/articles/832/832875p1.html


    Ouch! Even the Hannah Montana game came in close to SCL with a score of 5.6.


    YAY! It looks like the Wii is right on track to being another Gamecube.

    GC was awesome.

    Who ever said SCL was going to be a smash hit?

    GC was great if you only played first party games and were one of the 50 people to actually buy the console.

    Although, the Wii definately has a jump on the GC in terms of sales (by like 1000%).


    I think many people had high hopes for SCL, probably do to the franchising of the game. It's just getting a bit annoying that the only games that haven't been pretty much turds have been first party games (or ports). In fact, the only games to score about 9.0 (aside from RE4...a port) have been first party Nintendo games. If third party developers don't step up and start churning out good games soon, the Wii will go the way of the GC.

    Well melee didn't have quite the hype that brawl has, and sunshine wasn't nearly the system selling powerhouse that is brawl.

    And GUITAR HERO...

    Don't be so quick to say it will be EXACTLY the same.

    You have to remember that the casual audience doesn't read reviews. They'll be happy with a 75% MC rated game. D=

    Not to mention...For the Wii, it's probably not a good idea not to rely to heavily on reviews...because most of the titles that people just so happen to stamp "turd" on was just based off extremely improper reviews, and most likely never even played the games themselves...Most of the people, (I know of, and read bout) who bought SCL, wasn't disappointed with their purchase, and they really enjoy it.

    I just learned that you've just got to play the game yourself before you can talk any kind of (insert here) about a game...

    SCL had no hope from the beginning. The HSM cast should die, GC rules! I hate GH! Sunshine, Galaxy, Melee, F-0 GX, WW, TP Rules! Shame on Namco for their lousy spin-off! Good night!

    Last time I checked, the Nintendo Gamecube didn't have a motion sensor bar, an internet channel, a virtual console channel, and a channel where players can make their own mii's.. etc.

    Noteworthy games not mentioned:

    - Guitar Hero 3
    - The Godfather: Blackhand Edition
    - The Simpsons Game
    - Carnival Games
    - Madden 08
    - Big Brain Academy
    - Resident Evil 4
    - Medal Of Honour Heroes 2

    I didn't have particularly high hopes for this game but certainly higher than this.

    7.5-8.2 was what I was expecting/hoping for.



    Oh well, won't even be renting it now...

    id rather shoot my foot then play hsm. i really dont understand why ign would give that game a better rating then scl, has ign gone mad? i mean the only people i know who watched/liked high school musical was the chicks and some fat creepy asian kidin my class. no offense to people who liked it.
    and atom heart, the game cube had great games that happened to be prequels to games coming out/ on wii, and wii is awesome, dont bring it down cause of lazy third party developers.

    The fact that High school musical got a higher score than SCL, only proves that the whole rating system is broken.

    We live in a day and age, when they can rate a game without even playing the title. There's no way I can completely trust their judgment on titles like these. . .

    I'll take the words of many professional game reviewers over a couple of 10 year old kids that probably watch Dragon Ball Z and Yugio. Even from an objective standpoint, this game sucks.

    Let's see:

    Guitar Hero 3 (Port)
    The Godfather (Port, but not even that good)
    The Simpsons Game (Port and not good)
    Carnival Games (LOL!)
    Madden 08 (Port)
    Big Brain Academy (recieved OK reviews)
    Resident Evil 4 (Port)
    Medal of Honor Heroes 2 (decent)


    What was your point again?

    And who cares about all of the whizbang gizmos of the Wii when they aren't put to use well and most of the games are pure crap?

    So the reviewers at IGN and other sites openly admit to reviewing games without ever having played them? Got some proof?

    Seriously, the game is objectively bad. I find it so ironic that everyone bashes professional reviewers for being biased, whereas it's the USER REVIEWERS who are the most likely to be biased. Like I said, I'll trust a professional reviewer who has played many, MANY Wii and other console games over some 10 year old fanboy kid who has probably played a handful of Wii games.
