I loved Galaxy and thought it was brilliant, absolutely brilliant.
Yeah, I just remembered that you didn\'t feel ther music was right
don\'t remember who said they didn\'t like it... oh well.
But in terms of the fabled \"Nintendo magic\" I\'d say Galaxy, Pikmin, Wind Waker, Metroid Prime in terms of home console for games that really shone. Games like Twilight princess etc etc are good games, but not the AAA which I\'d associate from Nintendo\'s flagship series.
I agree on Pikmin & WW. Not Metroid Prime. Maybe that\'s all it had going for it because I actually slightly enjoyed it compared to the rest of the series, which I found mostly dull. I also agree that TP was a bit dated, but they only gave us what we asked for, a new Zelda that was like OoT.
Also games like Mario Kart Wii, the hit and miss nature of aspects of Brawl/Wii Sports/Wii Fit means I just don\'t get the notion of people thinking some games can be fixed by Nintendo essentially \"putting their minds to it\".
I consider Mario Galaxy as the kind of game they put their minds to. The visuals, the music. It all shows that an immense amount of work went into it. They had probably been working on it since GC days. I disagree about Brawl, but I\'m a huuuge Smash Bros fan. I also think Wii Sports had a degree of magic, for a short time. I\'m sure everyone was a bit smitten with it when they first tried it, but it never lasted long. Wii Fit I can\'t comment on, but I can\'t see how it can ever have \"Nintendo magic\"
Regardless of which only CPR will revive Hammer, it\'s a bit of a forlone hope to think it\'ll come out. I mean, it has tech demo written all over it, even if it comes out watch it have the depth of a shallow puddle in summer time.
Agreed, and regardless or not of it being revived, it really doesn\'t look like the kind of game Nintendo would bother applying \"magic\" to. It\'s clearly not of great importance to them. It reminds me of Bomberman Act Zero in terms of concept really. Generic \"Dark \'em up\"
Mario Kart Nintendo Magic? Not Wii. Possibly DS, but not Wii. It\'s great, but it\'s also so flawed. Mario Kart DS is also seriously flawed (snaking) but it does feel great to play a game like that on your DS.
