    Well first off I'd like to say hi. I'm not new to this forum but new to posting. I bought my first what I hoped to be enjoyable game for my wii today - PoP:RS. So far I've got to say I like the game very much. I got a lend of Warrior Within for GC, and to me the wii game is much more fun, whereas it gets you more involved with the game with the interactive controls. The graphics are satisfying for now. One thing that I would liked of be improved is how the character interacts with its surroundings, particular when jumping above on the beams. Sometimes the prince can jump a bit too short but still latch on. I guess this just makes to game run more smoothly with more ease. Anyways, what do you guys think is good (or bad) about this port? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey welcome to the forum. Hope you like it. As for PoP I haven't played the game but I've watched the trailers and the first 30 mins and they look extremely good. I think you're going to enjoy it a lot. As for the GC version don't even worry about it. Its got all the GC version has except newer controls. Hows the camera work?

    The controls are quite nice. You tilt the wii remote to look left and right, and you can look up or down with the direction pad. (I think you can also look left and right with directional pad also). I find this way of controling the view very effective and easy to use. Compared to Splinter Cell: Double Agent (which has the worst camera control view IMO), this game makes manuovering through the levels easier and faster.

    Wow thats so awesome! Thanks for that information. To be honest that was the ONE thing preventing me from giving all my support to the game. Granted its a port but not all ports are bad. Hopefully the graphics are good.

    So then DO THAT and stop bashing others who might enjoy the ports! If its not one thing its another with you guys.

    Ive played POP:WC on ps2, and to be honest, it was the control system that put me off. Whilst I enjoyed the series massively, and have from the Sands of Time, I found the more moves and actions that were added each game(and the more different combos to be performed) the harder I found to grasp the controls. Although it IS a port, it has a totally different control system (its like comparing Virtua Cop arcade to with a pad) so changes how the game is enjoyed. Personally, if there weren't many other games I'd like for the Wii (damn tight budgets), I would buy it straight away.

    I would probably be playing this game right now if I hadn't sold my wii, along with Super Paper Mario and Heatseeker.

    Well sure ports can be good, PoP is a good series but because other versions of ports can be bought so much cheaper... That's all that kills it for me.

    Maybe these ubisoft ports are just practice for the next games in the series, just getting used to the Wii, who knows.
    But while ports sell at launch they loose appeal later, once the big 3 come out all these old ports will sell at a much slower rate.

    Hopefully that forces some brand new games:p
