VC Monday Madness video wrap-up 3/31/08


This week sees another duo of titles available for play. One of them is N64 title Cruis'n USA, while the other launches a new system on the Virtual Console for North America. Hit up the video above for your usual dose, then head past the break for some added fun.


Cruis'n USA (N64, 1-2 players, 1,000 Wii Points)
Wii Fanboy says: do not download

It's not that Cruis'n USA is a bad game; this blogger can easily recall fond memories of enjoying his new N64 with this game. But, the game hasn't held up that well over time. The controls aren't all too responsive and, let's face it: this game can be found for a lot cheaper than $10. If you already own a N64, you likely have this game. If not, there are better N64 games to download.


Wonder Boy (Sega Master System, 1-2 players, 500 Wii Points)
Wii Fanboy says: download it!

Wonder Boy is a very solid platformer and a bit of a Super Mario Bros. clone. Well, actually, it's a downright clone, but it's still a good game. It's fun, has great sprites and is pretty challenging, even today. Although we would've liked it to be priced at 400 Wii Points, an extra 100 Wii Points isn't going to break the deal for us. Give this one a download.

That concludes our look at this week's Virtual Console games. As always, if you have any tips or rumors regarding Nintendo's Virtual Console service, be sure to let us know and come back next week when we take a look at the latest titles available on the Nintendo Wii!
