  • Excerpt: Putting aside, for a second, the fact that proper 1:1 waggling is what we all thought we were getting with the Wii in the first place, Nintendo's Wii MotionPlus supposedly makes possible a dream long held by boys who love their toys: virtual sword fighting.

  • Excerpt: Strong Points: Great combat, tight motion controls, a solid frame-rate, and good-looking visuals are the strongest points of this game. A great reward system is also good your first play through.
