Developer Group General Manager Chris Satchell doesn't seem to share the same opinions on the Wii as Peter Moore, apparently, as in a recent interview with CVG he says the Wii has yet to provide any game that really takes advantage of the control scheme. Satchell says "We're yet to see a really good game on Wii that really says 'OK that control kicked ass.'" We'd have to disagree, to tell the truth.

Sure, the controls for, say, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess may have tacked on and the game itself may be a port, but we don't think we could go back to playing Zelda without those controls. We think the controls present in that game will be improved as the franchise chugs along. Even if you want to side with Satchell and say there isn't any game that could be looked at as having "kickass controls" on the console right now, we're fairly sure that when a certain game by the name of Super Mario Galaxy comes out, he'll be changing his tune (we played it, it's that good).

What say you all?

Update: Pesky little 's' missed in headline.
