    A rather mixed month, some good scores at the top, but it goes all the way down to some bad ones at the bottom.

    It’s a shame to see Spore Hero with such a low score. When I played the demo at EA I really enjoyed it and thought it would be something that might interest quite a few Nintendo fans out there, but I think the almost total lack of marketing has really caused this one to almost sink without a trace…

    Nice to see the lost winds sequel up there though, I never played the original as the reviews said it was a very short game, so I would be interested to see whether this is any different in the new one.

    the new lost winds game is the only one that interests me from that list.

  • M_the_C (author) said:

    The reviews seem very positive. I was intrigued by the first one but never bought it in the end, if I have some spare points going I might give it a try. Although I’m not sure if I’d be missing out on the story by skipping the first?

    Apparently it’s also the UK’s 100th WiiWare game.
