    As per IGN...

    Worms: A Space Oddity - Mar 17th - $49.99
    [​IMG]
    In Worms: A Space Oddity, players can enjoy the ultimate blend of classic Worms game modes and single-player missions, as well as multiplayer modes that include a host of all-new party games and even more customization options. The Worms battles take place across six planets, each with its own, unique environments and global events. The game takes advantage of the Wii's intuitive controls, on-screen hints and the redesigned interface with an in-game help system. The online multiplayer experience pits up to four Worms fiends from all over the world against each other.


    SEGA Superstars Tennis - Mar. 18th - $49.99
    [​IMG]
    SEGA Superstars Tennis features classic SEGA characters - including Sonic the Hedgehog and Ulala from Space Channel 5 - plus some of the most unusual courts and outrageous settings ever imagined in a rousing match of tennis. Developed by Sumo Digital (the team behind the enjoyable Virtua Tennis 3), this title features a toal of 15 playable characters (and a host of SEGA icons cheering on from courtside), each with their own over-the-top tennis skills. Courts are SEGA-themed too, with Green Hill Zone and Samba de Amigo's Carnival Park.


    Target: Terror - Mar. 18th - $39.99

    Won't be purchasing any of these, especially not Sega Superstars Tennis and Worms: A Space Oddity. What mostly turns me off about Worms: A Space Oddity is the excess advertising (not just on this site, but others too).

    According to Wikipedia, Target: Terror was a light gun game released in 2004 for the arcades.

    Yeah no online for worms, plus a $50 pricetag means bad sales. Superstars Tennis will do ok I think.

    I plan on getting worms for sure! Love that series! It has a brand new Solo mission, but is said to have a way toned down multi player form so might not end up being my favorite.

    Sega Superstar tennis. Hmm not sure I'm honestly not a huge fan of the Mario Tennis series but this one also has a bunch of characters I like so I'll rent it before I buy it. See if they pull it off better than Nintendo has so far. Maybe deep down I just hate tennis. ha ha


    Target Terror.

    Thats exactly what I was thinking.

    It better be good for 39.99!

    I picked up HOD:2&3 and Ghost Squad for 29.99 new. GS may have been more when released though not sure. Still by todays prices it better be good.
    Now I love On-the-rails shooters specially on the Wii, it brought the genre alive for me again. I have friends comming over to play them all the time like we are 12 year olds with buckets of quaters at the arcade.

    But based on the price of this game it better only be a notch below RE:UC and alot better than the other 2.
    For some reason I doubt it is.

    HOD:2&3 is great so far BTW!

    Nothing there that interests me, Worms did sound good a few months back but the lack of online turns me away.

    It's listed as Q3 nothing more than that so far. Iv'e always hated the big sports titles. The only ones I can seem to get into are the ficticious ones.

    I believe Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 is supposed to release this week for the Wii anyway. Like the guy above said, the other platforms have already released it, but here in America, the Wii version comes this week. I'll probably rent it first, but it may be worth buying as well. I'm pretty much holding out until Mario Kart Wii though.

    All these games are rentals at best. Except target terror, that game looks very unpolished and short.

    UPDATE: I guess Traget Terror has been pushed back, and WWII Aces has been moved up.

    WWII Aces - Mar. 18 - No price
    [​IMG]
    Take to the skies and experience the intense aerial combat of WWII Aces for the Wii system. Featuring intuitive flight controls, you will be painting kills on the nose of your plane in no time. Fly for the Royal Air Force, Soviet Air Force, or Luftwaffe through multiple campaigns with a huge roster of mission types based on real events. Tackle missions alone or with a friend in co-op play, or show your challengers who rules the skies in competitive split-screen multiplayer.

    Ahh.... Worms got pushed back to the 25th of the month.
    I was pissed when i stopped at Gamestop and EB they had to call the central office to find out why it wasn't there!

    I ended up getting Bomberman Land and a couple more nun-chucks on the trip... Great purchase awsome multi player game a steal for 30 bucks.

    Still upset about Worms was looking forward to the multiplayer worms game again beena while.
