VC Monday Madness video wrap-up 7/14/08


This week we got ourselves a pair of Virtual Console games to check out. What do we think? Well, you know the drill. Watch the video above, then be sure to head past the break for the rest.

Donkey Kong 3 (NES, 1-2 players, 500 Wii Points)
Wii Fanboy says: do not download

It's not that Donkey Kong 3 is a bad game, just that we're fans of the earlier installments in the franchise. The first and secon game were a lot of fun, but this one doesn't create any tension and is more of a button masher than a title that tests your skill. Even at such a low price point, we think you should avoid this one.

Ninja Commando (NeoGeo, 1-2 players, 900 Wii Points)
Wii Fanboy says: download it!

Do you enjoy badass ninjas? Do you think that everything was put on this Earth so that you may blow it up with deadly ninja stars? Then Ninja Commando is for you. Seriously. You just blow everything up. It's awesome.

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.
