Best Wii Game
Looking at our list of nominees, you might wonder: What's up with the Wii? The other platforms had their share of modern gems released throughout the year. By comparison, the Wii's 2011 lineup seems relatively weak. But if you look a little closer, you can make a few interesting observations. One isn't all that surprising: Nintendo's console caters to nostalgia. Not only did Link once again grace us with his presence this year, but an almost-forgotten platforming icon also returned to form in glorious fashion. Another is less obvious: The Wii is also home to interesting games that deserve recognition but get overshadowed by the big blockbusters. There's a good chance you've never heard of Fluidity, and that's too bad because it's a shining pearl on Nintendo's often-forgotten downloadable service. You might think of the Wii as Mario's current home, but make no mistake: There are interesting ideas waiting to be explored on the platform, if you simply know where to look.
This game seems to be in the top 5 RPG coming this year and it's probably the best one on WII. All the other reviews and comments game it a really good score. Looking for this game.
Cool. Beat it and Loved every second of the 84hrs I put into it. Buy this game, you'll get your money worth and it will last longer than Uncharted 3, MW3, Resistance 3, and Batman campaigns combined.
I am amused that Wii's Best Game of the Year was a game that wasn't even released in the US (not YET!).
Ha ha at least they admitted that Skyward Sword was still a good game despite the score. Which technically was "good", but still. :P
I'm actually surprised that even though McShea gave SS an unimpressive score, the rest of the editors didn't supersede his opinion. I'm also surprised that they gave this to a game that hasn't release din the US, when the majority of its readers live in the US.
