For over twenty years since the debut of the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). Since then, we’ve seen a rich heritage of different platforms, Video Game Consoles and countless games. Wii brings these games to the virtual console.
The Nintendo Wii Game Console lets you play perfect recreations of classic video games on Wii, including favorite NES, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Turbografx (PC Engine), SEGA MEGA DRIVE and NeoGeo.
Whether you’re a nostalgia fan who wants to relive their childhood memories or a new player wanting to live the successes of the past, the virtual console is your ticket to the game’s history.
A wide selection of games for the console is available for download from the Internet via the Wii Shop Channel. Each game has a price in Wii Points.
Many of the virtual console games can be played with just the Wii remote horizontally, but some titles require the use of additional controls. So there is a command available classic, which includes all buttons and analog sticks to play any game from the virtual console.
Sonic the hedgehog the game’s most famous and, along with Mario (and with the permission of another), the most charismatic character in the history of videogames, is back once again to Nintendo Wii in a medieval style adventure arturiano, but true to the saga, holds the essence of the Sonic games.
Eighteen years after the debut of the hedgehog, the team has developed Sonic Team Sonic And The Black Knight Wii, a fully 3D adventure (as things have changed from those in the 2D Sonic that we were going from left to right of the screen) in which our protagonist meets with King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
The magical world of Camelot, is under the power of the Dark Knight Black. This character has caught several people in the kingdom and Sonic, along with their friends, you need to free them.
As you will see, the argument is who is to take the Oscar for screenplay, but often occurs in this type of game where you bet more to the gameplay and fun that the development of the plot.
This paragraph is almost identical to Sonic and the Secret Rings, Wii game coming in a couple of years ago. A time to play it, go forward, ran and jumped with Sonic dimensional environments, while the camera is placed behind us.
The main novelty is the addition of a sword, it will almost always. It is a medieval sword, called Caliburn and talks. To use it, use the Wiimote, making movements as if it were a sword in our hand movements are translated on the screen making a soft Sonic Caliburn to one side to another. To make that kind of attack as the sword, you will need to see a special bar on the screen reaches a certain level.
One aspect of the obstacles in playable Sonic And The Black Knight Wii is that the game is perhaps too linear. This means that there are different routes or paths to choose and will be continuing a pattern established.
Moreover, it is remarkable the high degree of replay value, so that we can return to play, despite having completed the game, to complete other aspects. For example, some levels can be played over and over again to get them a rating as high as possible. There are also unlockables that we can tackle missions once we have completed the game.
Besides the adventure mode, main mode of play, we meet the Battle mode. In this mode, enter the multiplayer option, since it can directly compete in battles against friends or play in cooperative mode, faced with various monsters.
Although there is no online multiplayer, it is possible to enter an overall rating. Based on our results in the game, or turn a position in a ranking made by players around the world.
Before commenting on the technical point of Sonic And The Black Knight Wii, that have added several customization options. In the game, the endearing Tails, will smith, and allow us to choose between several types of weapon, armor and other objects. It must be said that one of the strengths of the game is the large amount of collectibles that will unlock.
Without doubt, the best of the title are the graphics and sound. The guys from Sonic Team have done a great job here, making it visually, Sonic And The Black Knight Wii looks very good. The modeling is great characters and scenarios presented an acceptable level of textures. The truth is that at all times we will see a mix of environments and the medieval look of the classic Sonic games appealing in the sea.
The music, meanwhile, is sensational. The composer Richard Jacques Crush 40 and the group meet to shape a banda sonora excelente. Topics of high quality is Iran going, harmonious interlacing of the compass heading.
Sonic expands its legend, this time in a new context, the historical King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
However, Sonic And The Black Knight Wii is full of shadows. On the one hand, the argument is poorly developed and the idea is not that innovative. The gameplay, it may be something simple, and it follows a formula that we have seen in other titles starring the hedgehog. The main novelty is the addition of the sword, whose control, the truth may be somewhat repetitive.
On the other hand we have a great technical section. Graphics and sound are perfectly blended to give a great atmosphere to the game.
In conclusion, Sonic And The Black Knight Wii is a new version of the saga that is compliant but lets some clouds due to a lack of ambition by Sonic Team, especially at component playable. Come to the notes:
Final grade: 7.5
