After years of playing second fiddle, music-based gaming finally reached the forefront with the release of 2005’s Guitar Hero
. Now comes Boogie
, a game that combines well-known licensed dance hits and hip-hop music—from The Jackson Five to Britney Spears—with onscreen dancing and karaoke gameplay. The result is a strange and misguided attempt to do for singing and dancing what Guitar Hero did for guitar playing.
Game Description: Meet the Boogs. Get ready to join in and sing-in with some of the latest and greatest hits in this unique game with built-in karaoke functions. Fun mini-games, co-op gameplay, head-to-head dance battles and karaoke party make Boogie the perfect party game and a complete entertainment package for gamers of all ages. Players dance, sing and create music videos with this ultimate videogame party package that takes advantage of the innovative Wii controls getting gamers off their couch and playing to a new beat. Not only will gamers be belting out their favorite tunes or dancing to the latest hit songs, players will catch their best dance moves, record their own voice and make music videos with the easy-to-use music video creator.

If it accomplishes nothing else, Viva Pinata: Party Animals shows that someone, somewhere in the hierarchy at Microsoft understands the importance of attempting to expand their user base.

WarTech: Senko no Ronde is a trite piece of airy piffle with nothing meaty to recommend it. It's the perfect example of what would have been accurately described as cheaply-produced import bait five or ten years ago, and I'm honestly surprised that someone gave it a green light for domestic release.

Game Description: WarTech: Senko No Ronde is high-speed action gameplay, where quick reflexes decide who lives and who dies. In the distant future, humanity has colonized countless new galaxies and Earth has become a planet mined for its natural resources. A violent war has erupted as nations struggle for control. Rounder Mechs fill the skies as the fate of the world is determined in aerial combat. Climb into a mech-suit straight from anime, then shoot off into space for one-on-one shooter action. It's your mech against theirs, your reaction time against theirs: Weapons and special attacks let you hit each other from far off, but you'll have to close in for the finish. Metal fists and feet combine with missiles and laser cannons for intense, blindingly-fast shooter combat.

When I reviewed the first iteration of Trauma Center
on the Nintendo DS, I said that it was the first game that truly felt like it couldn't have been done on any other platform. Now that there's a revision of it on the Wii, I guess I'm going to have to eat those words. Although Second Opinion
is essentially the same game as the DS's Under the Knife,
not only is it just as good, it's the definitive version.
