Yeah, I've been sitting here trying to figure out how the wiimote will make a couple of average games better...

I'm all for the new content from Far Cry, and I can't imagine a better console control scheme for FPS's. The GT racing game looks like it will be an update of the cel-shaded GT Racer from Japan, with updated controls(which it needs)

Otherwise, Ubisoft is taking a big risk, and to be honest I could see maybe 4 of those games being worth the time to buy, that being GT racers, Far Cry, Red Steel and Rayman, the other three, eh not so much.

But that's not the name of a game now, is it?

And Ubisoft France may be working on a Wii Prince of Persia title, according to IGN. Wonder how the hell that would play.

Not to nitpick, but this isn't exactly accurate as posted.

Here is the official quote...

Quote
With seven official launch window titles from Ubisoft, the ever-expanding library of holiday Wii games is nearing 30 titles, and there are still more to come.


Key words there, launch window, that is like saying winter of '06, it is at least a few month spread.  These will not all be out day 1.

And is it just me, but we have all been talking about how we will get innovative gaming, but instead we are getting FPS's, a port of a mediocre at best flight game, 2 racing/driving titles and a platformer which all seem to be just standard fare for any of the other consoles.

Well, 1Up has this posted at the top of their news story:

Quote
UPDATE: An announcement press release from Ubisoft specifically indicates the seven announced games are meant for Wii's launch date, not the "launch period" we had originally suspected. The company also promised "more" games are in development for 2007.

So, I'm not really sure what the deal is.

Well, were I a chop-stick using person, I would find the same meals may be more enjoyable with a new invention called a "spoon". Soup especially. slywink

If a game has been completely retooled for use with a completely different control scheme, it may make that game better.

I'd REALLY like to see aJet Set Radio Future style game on the Wii. (not to be confused with Jet Set Satellite, a damn fine band).

I guess it depends on how far you want to take it. Nintendo's trying to come up with a new means of playing, of controlling, for sure. Trying to come up with an intuative system that anyone can pick up and play naturally. And I kind of agree with you - many of the games we're seeing could be seen as retooled ports, but I think it's also going to take a little time before developers open their minds to the possibilities (if there really are better possibilities) of the new controller. Like the DS.
