VC Monday Madness video wrap-up 9/10/07


This week wasn't the best as far as Virtual Console content goes, but we managed to still bring forth a video wrap-up on the day's games, despite our lack of enthusiasm to do so. Oh well, at least we got Sonic 3, right?

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points)
Wii Fanboy says: download it!

Sonic 3 is the title to get this week, providing the only worthwhile download of note. For 800 Wii Points, it is easily recommended for download, as it is the best of what the franchise has to offer, in our humble opinion.

NES Play Action Football (NES, 1-4 players, 500 Wii Points)
Wii Fanboy says: do not download

NES Play Action Football may have been an amazing game when first introduced to the market and a crowning achievement for Nintendo from a developer's point of view, but it hardly stands up to the test of time. With an easily-exploited AI and lack of depth, we wouldn't suggest giving it a download.

Neutopia II (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, 600 Wii Points)
Wii Fanboy says: do not download

Neutopia II is more of the same, offering up another Zelda-esque experience on the TurboGrafx16. With loads of NPC interaction and dungeon crawling, the game has everything Zelda does. That is, except for the crisp controls and, more importantly, fun.

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.
