Should You Invest in SimCity for Wii?

Posted on 29th November 2008 by admin in Game Reviews

SimCity Creator is not a new game; merely new to Wii. It was released way back in 1989 in a PC version. It is said that SimCity was the pioneer in the city building game genre. Considered to be an addictive yet simple system to manage, it allowed players to develop a town of modest means into a thriving metropolis. With a few changes along the way and a reworking for the old Super Nintendo Entertainment System, fifteen years have passed and Nintendo’s Wii game console system is happy to add SimCity to their library of games.

Wii Ski (Family Ski) a review

Did you think the Wii balance board that comes with Wii Fit was only for that one game? Nope! There is a (new) game called “We Ski (Family Ski)” that makes use of the balance board!

For the first time in a home entertainment setting, the whole family can enjoy Skiing just like the real thing! Well, sort of. Using the balance board, players can control the on screen action with their actual feet and balance!

Namco 2008, Video Game, $24.64

Don’t expect to get the real experience of skiing, but do expect to have some fun. There may more realism than some of the skiing video games in the past, but “We Ski (Family Ski)” is not some ground-breaking virtual reality game. (more…)
