Depends what games you like - Excite Truck is worth IMHO a look if you like driving games, Zelda is highly rated but not ideal if you only play a game very now and again.

give us some ideas of what games you have liked in the past

Zelda really good,but as someone says above you need to play it regularly,plus its takes hrs to complete.

My partner was dissapointed with Red Steel,and he recommends Tiger Woods,I think there a new 1 out soon tho so might be worth waiting.

I will let my partner know in a few weeks lol,only he wants an expansion pack for Total War- Kingdoms,and that ain't fair him having 2 games so quickly!
what he doesn't know doesn't hurt him,he leaves all the buying to me anyway so won't even think about checking when the new Tiger Woods one is out,he def knows about the expansion pack as he uses Total War forums.

yeh I know,but we had a hard mth,spending money for holidays,few days out here and there,it all adds up,so £30 ish for a game is a lot.
This is a site I regularly use to do price comparisons.

find-games.co.uk/

I just bought my children 4 DS games from Tescos,2 of which posted on this site,don't know if will get as Tescos according to some people,have been having delays with some games,awaiting stock etc.
Last game I bought for myself was Tomb Raider Anniversary which was a short while ago now,so for him to have an expansion pack aswell a Wii game thats asking for a lot.
True it will likely be advertised on tv.

Don't suppose your partner would consider selling "Red Steel" would he?

I played it a bit, it's alright actually, the motion control seems pretty accurate.

Thanks for coming back anyway... and for your research

Yes, GAME have had this title as one of their "Deal of the Week" items for at least two weeks [!] now.

I have a GAME reward card & will make an extra saving here.

I did consider the eBay route, but there is another option; that being at ChoicesUK:

[ choicesuk.com/Pro…342 ]

(However, depending on your point of view, you may be avoiding dealing with ChoicesUK at present due to their financial difficulties)

I had heard some mixed reviews for "Red Steel", but another HotUKDeals member, Crofteh, did rave about it here:

[ hotukdeals.com/for…=45 ]


I also included the title in my "WANTED" post from earlier this week:

[ hotukdeals.com/for…055 ]


Maybe someone will be able to offer it cheaper!?!

Thanks again.

Have bought "Red Steel" now, but it is still sealed, as I also bought "Resident Evil 4" [Wii edition] at the same time, and that's taking most of my time!

I was stood up for the first hour of playing, then thought '...Why am I doing this? Why don't I sit down?'.

Odd how your approach to gaming changes with the Wii

fifa 08 dont look good:S

"Kororinpa" is keeping my 5 & 6 year olds very occupied at present. It takes a little while (half an hour, for an adult, 3 seconds for an under 7) to master the Wiimote action to roll the marble around in 3D as the developers intended, but once you have the hang of it, it becomes second nature. A simple idea brilliantly executed

"Mario Party 8" has a gang of kids in our front room amused for a while, but the games can be so l-o-n-g to complete, so don't offer to join in or else you can write-off an hour or two. I foolishly suggested I played along with a particular "mini-"game with my 5 year old yesterday evening, and not even trying to go to sleep (through boredom) stopped him! He still insisted I had my turn. Then just when we were on the last round (of fifteen) he decided it was bed time for him & left me to "finish it". Gee... thanks! I'm sure there are some adults who will love this, but unfortunately I'm not one of them.

"Boogie" was just about OK, but after an hour I found it got harder to motive myself to try (to win). Nowhere near as good as the PS2 "SingStar" titles, especially given that the recordings in "Boogie" are not by the original artists. You can't even say it's aimed at kids as most of the tracks aren't those that kids would know anyway (unless you play them your 70s/80s/90s compilations).

The dancing interaction is a bit kid-friendly too, so don't expect to gain too much from this, other than annoyance that the tracks don't play out as your recall them & you end up missing the intro to a line when the console decides that it really does know how your favourite song is *supposed* to sound regardless of how you try to sing it (correctly).

PS. Check out the online videos at [ uk.gamespot.com ] or at [ gametrailers.com ] before committing to purchase, so you can be sure the gameplay is to your liking.
