Yeah, was talking about the downloads coming.

What game(s) did you play? I'd guess you stuck with Wii Sports, annnnd you played it alone. That game (or set of games) is meant to be played with others. It's not very fun solo.
Resident Evil 4, Metroid Prime 3, Mario Galaxy, Zelda: Twilight Princess = great solo games. Give 'em a try. Rent them if you don't want to chance a purchase.

sounds like a fanboy rant. Seriously, the PS2 was the weakest system of the last generation. That doesn't mean the games looked terrible, just that compared to the Xbox and Gamecube, they were visibly less complex.

"Like its predecessors, Corruption features superb art direction, so every level is even more incredible to explore than the last."
"It is a magnificent return to form for the series; Retro's art team reinforces its position among the best in the industry. Locations simply ooze atmosphere and personality"
"let's get into Corruption's major accomplishment: the graphics. Or should I say, the artwork. After a few relatively simple early areas, Corruption blooms
into colorful and elaborate designs that are thick with atmosphere. [...] Amazing as it is to say about a Wii game, Corruption contains some of the best visuals in gaming, period. It can't always mask the hardware's technical limitations (pixelation every time you're up close waiting for a door to open, for example), but in most cases the lighting, attention to detail, and wonderfully cohesive and imaginative art direction more than make up for the Wii's lack of raw horsepower. Put it this way: I found myself wandering through rooms two or three times just to look at them
. How many games on any system can you say that about?"
Like I said, it's pretty widely regarded as having some of the most impressive graphics (I suspect by that you inferred simply polygonal complexity and resolution. Graphics are that, but also, and IMO more importantly, the art direction. That is clearly where Prime 3, and Galaxy shine. Even Zelda: Twilight Princess had very impressive art direction.)
