    it's not must own because the gc/ps2 versions are basically the same. plus the wii controls for that game are just ok, and i actually prefer using the gc or ps2 controller to play it.

    Mass Effect is an amazing game. The story is really good (what else to expect from BioWare), and the characters are all very easy to get attached to and identify with.

    I'm about 10 hours into the game (would be more if i didn't have exams all last week), and there are so many side quests and planets to explore. Some may not enjoy the planet exploration because the planets are all pretty barren (except for enemies, and a few forms of wildlife). There are sidequests for basically every planet, though, and while none progress the main story, they're all very fun.

    The graphics are really good. It runs on the same engine as gears of war, i believe, and has the same issues with textures not loading immediately (especially on armor), but I can easily overlook that.

    The gameplay is really fun. I suggest turning on partner AI to Active, so you don't have to babysit them and they'll actually use their skills on their own. Fights can get challenging at times, especially if you're not careful and end up getting flanked. I wish you could choose more than two partners to take with you at a time, because I like all six of them.

Only thing I don't like about it is sometimes the downtime in storylines like when you're in the future and they're just talking...and talking...and talking... and the camera angles during some cutscenes.

    Also picked up Super Mario Galaxy this week, and that too is incredible. For Wii fans everywhere, I think they should be happy that Nintendo FINALLY released another great game for the Wii after slacking a bit (to be honest with you, including this one there's only three must have games for the Wii: Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, and Legend of Zelda: Twlight Princess with Super Smash Brothers Brawl becoming the fourth in February).

    Assassin's Creed: 9/10
    Super Mario Galaxy: 10/10 (Seriously, this game is great).
    assassin's creed is pretty good, but i agree with the reviews that it gets pretty repetitive and the ending sucks balls. ending VERY abruptly and obviously setting up for a sequel

    super mario galaxy is fun, but i've never been a huge fan of the mario games or platformers in general (except for megaman x and castlevania). it's actually overtaken zelda: ocarina of time as the highest rated game ever. It's at 97.9% over 31 reviews, while zelda was at 97.6% over 31 reviews.

    In my honest opinion its a must own for all 3 systems if you have them. Maybe i am just biased, but that is in my top 3 all time.

    it is an amazing game, i just didn't feel like it should be counted as a must own for the wii because it's crossplatform and a port from a last gen system and you can play the gc version on the wii.

    Thats true about the game cube version....and maybe now that Metriod is out is lowers it...but in my opinion if you bought a Wii when it dropped and you didnt have RE4....what the heck did you play???? Other than Twilight Princess, that was the ONLY other good title for Wii till Metriod and Mario..

    so it was kinda a pretty strong base for that system

    that said, i understand your reasoning, and as a video game afficionado myself, i kinda agree with you.

    I read about that. Ocarina of Time is my favorite game of all time. And I don't think Mario Galaxy could possibly pass it. Zelda actually got you into the story, there was a legit plot. Mario Galaxy is basically Mario 64 just in space. Ocarina had a great storyline and was just a muh better game.

    Which I why I'm going to be incredibly hard on Galaxy. It better be pretty damn good to be rated higher than OoT...yikes.

    But you're right. I generally don't compare my platformers to my RPGs since they're so different as far as structure goes.

    Well with all this debating i think we need to start listing top 10 favorite games of all time.

    BTW. i count all the maddens and tiger woods as series. But not Final Fantasy's etc. because those games are all different, while Madden and Twoods is essentially the same game.

    1 - Goldeneye
    2 - Final Fantasy 7
    3 - Resident Evil 4
    4 - The Ocarina of Time
    5 - Madden
    6 - Assassins Creed (and rising)
    7 - Twoods
    8 - Final Fantasy 12
    9 - GTA Vice City
    10 - Perfect Dark

    I just got COD: 4 last week for my Xbox... I've played about half the single-player, which I love, but once I start playing multiplayer it's hard for me to go back... I love the multiplayer on this game.

    Waited last night at Best Buy with my brother so he could pick up Rock Band for the 360. We didn't get too into it last night but so far it is really a lot of fun being able to not only play the guitar but also sing or play the drums.

    Plus they also let me buy Live Free or Die Hard, so it was a good time waiting for the midnight opening.

    I had a choice between Mass Effect or Assassins creed, and after hearing how the latter was fun but repetitive, i opted to wait for that and picked up Mass Effect today. I am pleased with my decision, thus far the game is orgasmic.
