VC Monday Madness video wrap-up 6/23/08

This week sees the Virtual Console receiving not one, but two games. Well, we've had enough time to play them and have produced the video you see above. Check it out then head on past the break for the rest.

Burning Fight (NEOGEO, 1 - 2 players, 900 Wii Points)
Wii Fanboy says: download it!

The only real issue I had with Burning Fight was its price. 9 bucks seems a bit too steep, if you ask me, but when the only comparable beat-em-ups on the system are priced just a dollar less (save for River City Ransom), I just couldn't give this one a thumbs down. If you enjoy the genre, check this one out.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World (Sega Master System, 1 player, 500 Wii Points)
Wii Fanboy says: do not download

Candace be damned! Even if she's going to kill me for hating on one of her childhood distractions, I have to say that this game is one clumsy platformer. The controls aren't that great and the game can get monotonous, despite the variety in level structures that are reused throughout the title. I don't think this one held up that well over time.

Each week, we here at Wii Fanboy like to check out the latest Virtual Console releases in our VC Monday Madness feature, for you, in the hopes that you can make the most sound decision you can regarding purchasing retro titles on the Wii.
