Star Fox(R) 64 (Nintendo(R) 64, 1-4 players, 1,000 Wii Points): Players take
the controls of their Arwing and complete 15 missions to reach the final
objective: a showdown on Venom, the home planet of the interplanetary tyrant,
Andross. Throughout the adventure, players have to accomplish challenging
objectives in order to reach and conquer every mission. Skim over the surface
of an alien sea, weave through the concrete canyons of a futuristic metropolis
or dodge planetoids the size of mountains. Between missions, players will be
treated to real-time 3-D movies that progress the story of the Star Fox team of
space mercenaries in their struggle against the evil ape emperor, Andross.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles(R) (NES(R), 1 player, 600 Wii Points): Cowabunga!
Players take control of the turtles in a half shell and rescue reporter April
O'Neil from the clutches of the evil Shredder. Battle against the Foot Ninja
Clan as Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Donatello and Raphael with their trademark
weapons and ninja abilities. Search through five stages and dozens of areas
throughout the New York City sewers, rooftops and ultimately Shredder's
Technodrome to save April. Players must scarf down some pizza to keep up their
energy, as they'll need it to defeat Shredder. Turtle Power! (C)2007 Mirage

Dragon's Curse (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, 600 Wii Points): After defeating the
Mecha Dragon in the depths of the Dragon Castle, the wounded beast casts a
spell on the hero, turning him into an ugly creature. To return to human form,
he must find the Salamander Cross, which can break any curse. This
side-scrolling action role-playing game is nonlinear, allowing players to
venture freely. Collect gold and items while upgrading equipment and powering
up stats. The hero starts as Lizard-Man but, upon defeating the dragon bosses,
is changed into other creatures such as Mouse-Man, Piranha-Man,Tiger-Man and
Hawk-Man. Each creature possesses distinct abilities such as the ability to
fly, swim, walk on ceilings or cling to walls. Players use each creature's
special skills to widen your search for the Salamander Cross and bring the hero
back to his human form!
