IGN Wiikly Review Summary

By  •  Wii

With IGN closing shop for the week thanks to Thanksgiving. IGN went ahead and put together their Wiikly review. With only a half week there still a lot of things talked about.

Summary

Galaxy sales
– 500k first week in the USA – Matt thinks it’s pretty phenomenal – biggest opening of any Wii game to date and shows people are still interested in traditional games on Wii.
– A LOT of games don’t get 500k in their entire worldwide lifespan.
– In local retailers Matt keeps seeing lots of people buying Galaxy, so he would be shocked if it didn’t have long legs through the holiday season.
– Matt and Mark are both baffled by the lukewarm reception of Galaxy by Japan. Matt attributes the low sales to a change in the market – games that performed well in the past are not doing as well these days, while games like Wii Sports and Wii Play are the main focusses in the market. There is a noticeable momentum shift.
– Matt thinks it is a travesty, along with the sales of Twilight Princess.

MTV: Top Ten Mario Games-Pre-Galaxy

By  •  Wii

10. “Super Mario Sunshine” (GC)- Mario’s squeaky clean appearance on the Gamecube. Was it me, or was all the fun sucked out of a game where you go around cleaning things. I understand that that wasn’t the only thing you do in the game, but, I mean, come on. This game barely made it on the list.

I’m well aware that I could be less than twenty four hours away from a drastic overhaul of this list, once “Super Mario Galaxy” makes its way into my hands, but right now, this is where the list stands. I have my fingers crossed that “Galaxy” will be able to change my mind about Mario in 3-D, but I’m still a bit skeptical. Only time will tell.

9. “Mario Bros.” (Arcade) – wait… Mario has a brother? Luigi, the neglected younger sibling makes his first appearance in one of the greatest displays of sibling rivalry in the history of video games. Which brother could stomp more koopas, and collect more coins? From one younger sibling to another… my money was always on Luigi.
