Rygar: The Battle of Argus


The Wii seems to be the system of choice if you want to play older games. It has a wealth of downloadable classics on Virtual Console, you can play the entire library of GameCube titles, and now it\'s even getting ports of PS2 games, like this 2002...

Samba De Amigo - Wii review at Thunderbolt Games


Every once in a while, I come across a game that is hard to judge. Initially very fun, Samba De Amigo first struck me as a must have Wii game. It was great; shaking the maracas in time to a number of well-known samba styled songs. An alternative to...

Samba De Amigo


The Wii has certainly earned a reputation when it comes to revitalising old games. Originally released on Sega's ill-fated Dreamcast console, this zany and fun game is the perfect partner for the Wiimote controller.

Samba de Amigo


Whether you're rolling balls or shaking maracas, Sega knows that everything is more fun with monkeys.

The core gameplay is just as fun as it was on the Dreamcast; fairly large selection of songs

Wii Remote controls are not always terribly accurate; lots of repeated songs from previous entries in the series

Samba De Amigo Wii


Like a party viewed from afar

Rainbow wonderland visuals ; Downloadable content ; Lots of multiplayer modes

Energetic play = losing ; Allows "cheating ; Controls are just plain broken

It’s as if you’ve been invited to a party but your host has written down the order you have to eat the snacks in. Cheesy football first, one hula-hoop next... all around you looks and sounds like a party, but you’re sure as hell not at one. The circles...

Samba de Amigo made a splash on the Sega Dreamcast in 2000, introducing the world to music-based games utilizing game-specific peripherals. While the trend has continued with the likes of Guitar Hero, Rock Band, etc. none of them have had a perfect...

Samba De Amigo - Review


Samba de Amigo and its manically smiling monkey first appeared on the Dreamcast a number of years ago. What really set it apart from other games at the time (and would still set it apart today) was its specialized controllers that resembled a pair of...

If only the Wii controls were as precise an instrument as maracas...
