Souped-up Sonic the Hedgehog Races to the Wii-kly Update

Splatterhouse 2, Wild West Guns and Sonic the Hedgehog; what a combination of games for this week’s Wii-kly update.

Splatterhouse 2 is a romp through a haunted house with weapons of chunky destruction. Since most of your enemies are already dead anyway, it’s all good. You and a partner can compete to see who’s the fastest draw in Wild West Gun. Just don’t shoot the pesky innocent by standers that always manage to get in the way.

Sonic the Hedgehog brings back fond memories of playing with friends and bubbly beverages on New Years Eve into the morning light. This however is not that Sonic. It a new and improved edition of the classic Sega exclusive featuring new stages, bosses, some different zones and a level map. Those elusive Chaos Emeralds are now hidden in certain stages outside the traditional “special stages.” Check out the title that hooked gamers on the fastest critter since Speedy Gonzalez.

Complete descriptions for all three games follow the break.


Wild West Guns (Gameloft, 1-2 players, Rated T for Teen—Violence, 1,000 Wii Points): Draw your revolver to see if you’re the fastest gun in the West. Adjust your speed and precision as targets or enemies appear in front of you. Point and shoot to earn more points. You can aim at anything, so be sure to explore the environment for elements that will earn you more shooting points. Identify your enemies among the characters you encounter, but don’t shoot at innocent citizens. Take part in an Old West-style train attack, or challenge your skills in a variety of increasingly difficult shooting challenges in other beautiful, classic and lively Western environments. As you progress through challenges, you’ll earn medals and rewards, making for nonstop, addictive action. Play in a two-player multiplayer mode where you and your partner can combine points, or play against each other to
find out who’s the fastest gun in the West.

Virtual Console

Sonic The Hedgehog™ (Sega Master System, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): Based on the original Sega Genesis version, Sonic The Hedgehog was re-created as the first Sonic game for the Sega Master System. Not just a straight port, this version includes new stages, bosses, some different zones and a level map. The most noticeable difference, however, is that the Chaos Emeralds have to be found within certain stages other than the Special Stages. Dash through six Zones (including special zones that were only available for the Sega Master System version) and face Dr. Eggman (a.k.a. Dr. Robotnik) at the end of every Zone.

SPLATTERHOUSE™ 2 (Sega Genesis, 1 player, Rated M for Mature—Blood and Gore, Violence, 800 Wii Points): SPLATTERHOUSE 2 is the sequel to SPLATTERHOUSE, released only on the Sega Genesis. A few months after escaping from the first mansion in SPLATTERHOUSE, the main character, Rick, once again encounters the Terror Mask and must use its powers to rescue his beloved Jennifer. Rick will need to punch, slash, smash and even chainsaw his way through a haunted mansion against unspeakable horrors and terrifying bosses to make it out alive.
