Cursed Mountain Review

24 January 2010
  • Excerpt: A common argument against Wii games getting mediocre review scores is that the person reviewing the game just doesn't like the Wii and motion controls. It seems that the console has developed this kind of protection against criticism, with anyone against it simply being wrong.
