I highly recommend this game, bought it when it was around 20 quid plus I have the PSP versions and don't regret any of them.

For those who haven't seen this before you control a blob of mercury and move it around my tilting the Wiimote - as you tilt the controller, the entire level tilts as well to guide the mercury in the right direction. Generally you have to get your mercury to the end through various puzzles and colour changes, what's great about this version is that it's very forgiving. As long as you get a blob of mercury to the end no matter how small you can pass to the next level unlike the first game which was merciless in its requirements to pass to the next level.

This means you can play through the game at the pace you want and if you get stuck you can have a go at the next level or you can go back and have another go at an earlier level to try and beat the par time, get more bonuses or get all of your mercury home.

hmm, i had the original and second ones for PSP - i played the first and it annoyed me due to the strict limits, and i never got round to playing the second due to this before selling. the original still sits there and it annoys me every time i see it lol.

might have to pick this up for the Wii then. might rent it first though, see how i go.

The first Mercury was very frustrating, it was just far too punishing - the tight time limits meant you had to rush which meant it was too easy to lose a blob of mercury over the edge.

Meltdown is very different - your basic goal is to get mercury to the end of the level, as long as you get a blob of mercury there eventually you can pass the level even if it's just 1% and you take ten minutes. There are some levels which will need certain levels of mercury to trigger pressure switches though. There are three targets for the level, beat the part time, get all the mercury home and catch all the bonuses which you can do to get more points and unlock the bonus levels and higher up levels. You don't have to do all three simultaneously though which is good because it can take a while to get your mercury to the bonuses and then onto the end of the level.

Most of the concept of the game is the same, you still have the different colour mercury and different coloured switches plus the mercury can now change state either to a solid ball or hotter, 'looser' liquid which breaks up far easier.

The only problem I've really had is that the Wiimote tilting isn't as accurate as the analogue nub which you'd expect but the game is pretty much identical, I think a few tweaks are needed to some levels to counter the reduced accuracy.

If you enjoyed the concept of the first game I think you will enjoy this one.

The critics say Mercury Meltdown Revolution :thumbsup:

My tip: If you want a really good Monkey Ball game, grab a Gamecube pad and memory card, and go for the 'Cube versions.

They perfected the controls on that format and they were apparently never bettered, although to be fair, I haven't played every iteration made.

Ha ha, well clearly it couldn't be a fault of my superior gaming skills :whistling:

When you start a round there is a graphic of the Wiimote with an outline round it while the countdown to the level starts ticking down, it's there to warn you if the Wiimote isn't level because it means your mercury will just dribble over the edge at the start. Sadly I usually notice this indicator about a second too late...

As for Monkey Ball vs Mercury, I've only really played the Gamecube one so I'm not sure about later iterations however my personal preference as a single player game (multiplayer Monkey ball is a good laugh, Mercury less so) would be Mercury. Monkey ball is less puzzle based with the main challenge really just getting your monkey across the level without falling down. Mercury does have a lot of this element but there's more puzzle to it, with many levels at a first glance it isn't obvious what you have to do - I like trying to work out the colours I need, how to get them, which traps to be aware of etc.

Great deal - thanks for the link. I've ordered it!

I also ordered Fantastic 4 about a month ago for £10 from Tesco Jersey as posted on Hot UK Deals, but after reading the rubbish reviews recently, I'm sticking it on fleabay! This game look like a much better alternative for my 5 and 10 year old!

Of all the games I got for the PSP, the original Mercury was the one I spent/wasted the most hours on. I can imagine it would be excellent with the Wii's tilt sensors.
