TenChu 4 | Wii Video Games

Tenchu is a ninja simulator video game. You act as a ninja to complete the missions secretly with cunning intelligence and speed. You have to figure out exactly how the missions should be completed because you will only be given a guideline of the mission without any details. In other words, Tenchu contains some adventure elements in it. You have to explore around to complete your tasks.

In this video game, you have many tools to use. For example, you use a grappling hook to climb to the tops of temples and buildings. Shurikens, smoke bombs, poison rice, grenades, Caltrops, a sword to fight against with your enemies. These tools are very well designed and you would find them very handy to complete your missions. Sneaking and stealthing with all these tools to complete your missions silently without being noticed is the key.

Graphic effects and background music is done perfectly. You can feel the Eastern style of the music. This video game is steeped in Japanese imagery and music. All these effects will project a sense of mysterious in the game. If you love adventure and fighting game style, TenChu would be a good choice for you.

De Blob - Wii

The story happens in an alien city of Chroma which is dominated by the monochromatic I.N.K.T. Corporation. Your mission is to liberate this city with color, and construct skyscrapers, bridges and massive landmarks. The concept of this video game is very creative and compelling. This video game is produced by a team of students at Utrecht University in Netherlands. However, you have to wait until September for the release.

De Blob offers a single player mode and multiplayer mode which can be played by up to four people. In its paint match mode, you compete with your opponents in a race to color as many buildings as possible within a time limit. You get more points for painting buildings without color than those which have already been painted by others.

The most exciting mode is the De Blob on the Run. In this mode, the first Blob who grabs a paint container needs to paint as much as he can without being tagged by the other Blobs. If you were discovered by other Blobs, they can fire a smash attack against you. They can then take over your container. So you better paint as much as you can before being tracked by others. Sounds exciting, isn’t it? Be patient though, we will see de Blob available not until September. Stay tuned.

Star Soldier R - WiiWare

Does it look familiar? If you have played Radien X before, you should realize that Star Soldier R looks very similar to it. It is a typical top-down shooting video game. If you have played Radien X before, you may also find Star Solider R addictive as well. The difference is that it is a WiiWare. Animation effect in Star Solider R is much better than that in Radien X. To download it, you need to spend 800 Wii points (i.e. $8) from the Wii Channel.

You should be able to finish the game in just five minutes. It only contains two levels. Thus, it is a mini video game. Sounds like it doesn’t have much to offer. However, you will get addicted to its flawless smooth motion and its well designed gameplay. Besides fighting against the flying enemies, there are so many objects in the game for you to explore. In the background, there are many key things for you to attack and collect. When your ship is fully equipped, you'll be able to use lasers to shoot out of six orifices and controlling an armada of five energy balls to protect your from any attacks. I believe you have completed Radien X for a long time. So it is time for you to get on to your fighting ship again with this WiiWare game.

Sonic Unleashed - Wii

Sonic Unleashed is currently being developed internally by Sonic Team Japan. It will be released on the Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and the PlayStation 2 platform. One of its most outstanding graphics effect is displaying things in 3D. It will focus on two-dimensional platform levels, displayed in 3D, as well as fast, fully-3D controllable stages. This video game is primarily composed of two modes, the 3D sidescroller, with two-dimensional mode with seamless shifts to 3D. The speed of the game is unbelievable fast! With its improved lock-on for automatically targeting, it makes it much easier for hitting your enemies. You can also perform sliding across the ground, and you can also dodge obstacles to the left or right at high speed. Sliding around the corner is another new controlling mode that may be included in the video game.

An on-screen energy meter can be filled by collecting rings, which is used to activate a temporary speed boost, during which time the camera uses a fish-eye effect and motion blur; hitting enemies and obstacles will reduce the meter. As you can see from the images, the graphics are stunning. So keep an eye on the official release date for
Sonic Unleashed!

Mario Party 8 - Part 2 Wii

This version contains various interesting virtual board games for you and your friends. A total of six boards in Mario Party 8 are available, and all of them bring you up and close to the action instead of the normal bird’s eye view used in the older titles. For example, Goomba’s Booty Boardwalk and Koopa’s Tycoon Town really change the way you play the game. You need to apply some strategies to win the games. Tycoon Town is a mini monopoly game in which you invest your coins into the hotels to secure the stars they hold. The cool thing of this game is that someone can come up right under your nose and invest a few more coins to take over your investment. So you need to be smart in this mini game to win.

Graphics and sound effects are not too bad in this video game, and some new graphical effects have been added in the Wii version which allows you to see the details in the close up view of the stages. However, its graphic does not support widescreen mode though. This is an area that should be improved in the next version.

Mario Party 8 is a great causal video game for you and your friends to have fun together. As its name has suggested, this video game is particularly suitable when you are having party! So get one in your library and whenever you have a birthday or even wedding party, you can get this video game out and let your group of people laugh and have fun together.

Mario Party 8 - Wii

Mario Party is a good choice if you want to get a group of people to have fun together. You can have up to four people to play concurrently. You guys will play some interesting virtual board games to win some stars or treasure items. You can get items such as double or triple dice rolls, coin sucking vampire transformations, and coin draining electro zaps to enhance your performance in the game. Throughout the game you will collect Carnival Cards as currency to unlock other items.

In the Wii version, you will start in a carnival. Five game modes are available for you to play with. All of the major modes in previous versions are available, and two new modes, the Extras Zone and a Star Battle Arena, are added in the Wii version as well. The Extras Zone allows you to play some mini-games such as Wii Bowling or Ping Pong. In the Star Battle Arena, you need to compete against computer-controlled opponents to become the champion.

The mini-games provided in this video game are very fun to play with. Basically, you use your Wiimote in three different ways for controlling the game. You can use your Wiimote to swing as a bat, or use it as a hammer or lasso. You can also use the Wiimote as a steering wheel as well. Of course, if this game is compatible with the Wii wheel, it would be much better. Another way of using the Wiimote is to use it as a normal game controller by pushing the buttons.

Lost Winds - Wii

Lost Winds is a non-traditional video game. It is a story about a boy Toku to save his homeland from a spirit Mistralis. The way to play this video game is quite different from others. You control your main character Toku indirectly by means of controlling the wind spirit Enril.

It is a 2D video game. You use the Wiimote and A button to control the wind spirit. By controlling the wind spirit, you will be able to thrust Toku up and down, slice at enemies, and crash boulders. As you progress through the game, you will be able to use new abilities like controlling the fire direction. These abilities are critical for you to succeed for the mission. This kind of controlling method is not very traditional, isn’t it? I guess that is why the title is called 'LOST' Winds. You may find it hard to control the direction you want Toku to go initially. You need to practice more to get used to manipulate the wind spirit.

In terms of its graphics, it is awesome. Color contrast being used in this video game is very eye catching. You will agree after looking at the scene snapshots and trailer of this video game. The background music is also very high in quality as well. The flutes, the bongo drums, and the whistle of the birds are so pleasant to hear. It makes you feel like you are living in a world of peace. Although it is not easy to control the main character when you first start, you will love the animations and background music of this video game. Once you get used to the non-traditional movement controlling approach, you will find more enjoyable to play this video game. Watch Trailer Here

Fifa 08 - Online Mode Wii

Online multiplayer mode is also available in the Wii version. You need to register before being able to play this mode. Once registered, you can find a random game from the online lobbies. The number of people in the lobbies are scattered among the available games. You should be able to find a game easily even though the total number of people playing the games is over hundreds. You can also add people to your buddy list and check if they're online. You can also send quick messages to them using the onscreen keyboard.

The interactive online leagues allow you to choose a team and play real-life fixtures as they happen through the season. This mode is very cool. You can choose your favorite, and the results across all platforms feed into a central scoring system, and the results are decided based on points from all games.

Animation effects of this video game are quite impressive. The stadiums also look very awesome as well. However, some camera angles give little detail. The Wii version shares most of its music tracks with other platforms. The soundtracks are very high-quality recorded by professional artists. The only downside is the repetitive comments from the commentary. So overall FIFA 08 is a video game that you should keep a copy.
