VC Monday Madness video wrap-up 5/5/08


This week, we've got two titles on the Virtual Console tap. How are they? Well, we can't waste precious space here telling you about them. That's what the video above is for! And, if you can't check out our videos for some reason, head past the break for some screens and text.

Renegade (NES, 1 - 2 players, 500 Wii Points)
Wii Fanboy says: do not download

Renegade hasn't held up, if you ask me. The gameplay gets really tired, fairly early on, and even though you can do some cool things like control the direction of combat, as well as grab enemies, it all boils down to you being as cheap as possible to get through areas as quickly as possible. It may only be $5, but we're sure you can find plenty of better titles on the Virtual Console for that money.

Pokemon Puzzle League (N64, 1 - 2 players, 1,000 Wii Points
Wii Fanboy says: download it!

Pokemon Puzzle League is a puzzle game in Pokemon clothing. If you're looking for any kind of activity that involves those little critters, you won't find it here. Instead, you'll find lots of fun puzzle action, available in multiple flavors. On top of the basic fun of puzzle gameplay, there's loads of activities to do in the game, from the Puzzle Academy to the timed challenges. Give it a try.

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.
