Havent played it, but heared it plays amazingly well with the Wii's controls.

Cool...i voted hot...nice price for a Wii game..

The list of reviews on uk.gamestracker.com would indicate it's a good game. Voted hot. Looks like this is the cheapest place in stock...

Depends what you enjoy in a game - I had the PSP versions and enjoyed them, so picked up the Wii version as well. The motion controls make it a bit more entertaining to play although I don't think they've changed the game enough from the PSP one - sometimes I find it very difficult to get the precision required to get the maximum score (all mercury within par time and picking up the bonus items)

However it's a very forgiving game, as long as you get any size of blob to the end of the level you can progress whereas the original game was very punishing.

For 18 quid I think it's well worth it as it's something a little different, it's well suited to the Wii controls unlike many games where people are trying to think up ideas to use the motion controller.

Cheers have not played this one before but have read the reviews for it on play.com and it looks good at a great price too. Voted Hot

This was released in the US as a budget $20 title. Sickening that the UK rrp is 4x that.

This game is also 17.99 in Thatz entertainment in Lakeside, Thurrock. If you live near there, that might be the better option.

Sadly it's just the norm for the UK - the stupid thing is that with an rrp of 20 pounds it would probably have sold far better as I think it's a great game for that price but hard to justify at 40 pounds. This sales strategy often works well in the US where they've dropped a game price to half a normal game then sold six times more than expected.
