Black Ops Wii Rocks . . .
Pros: Nice graphics all around, good animation, super-multiplayer (Nuketown is so cool ! ) interesting storyline and excellent controls / controller options. Great improvement over Goldeneye 007 online multiplayer. Does not seem to have the "Host Quit " and "lost connection to host" problems that currently plagues the otherwise awesome Goldeneye 007. Good use of FMV for the story telling parts when necessary. Once again the Wii proves it can do it, with limited hardware to boot. Overall a fantastic FPS for the Wii library. Lot of dark history / imbellished dark history to explore and become exposed to. Partly based on real events gives a gritty and darker edge to the game. More for adults in my opinion, with regards to that. Supprisingly good playing game. FREE ONLINE MULTIPLAYER, hint Microsoft.
Cons: Some textures are lacking. Obviously some textures were given priority over others, likely because of a lack of Wii system memory. (Hey, us Wii owners can't have it all now can we.) The important textures and / or graphics look nice, it's just some other ones, more like when you are just looking around for eye candy etc... are not quite as nice. Fair amount of blur with just the standard A/V cable, or composite video when looking in the distance. Not very long single player campaign. (Not short, but not too long either.)
Other Thoughts: The component / RGB video cable made a significant and genuine visual improvement on this and several other games, including Goldeneye 007. The textures look sharper and looking into the distance is much better. The leaves on the trees are sharper etc... There is less blur and the improvement is rather supprising. It is not HD, but the frames are not interleaved anymore and one would be supprised how much of a difference that makes, even on eyestrain. Multiplayer is much more enjoyable than Goldeneye 007 because you do not have to spend 2 + hours a night just trying to complete a round and get your experience points before the host leaves or rage quits. Great improvement in that area. 5 eggs because it is a solid FPS for the Wii and is very fun to play single or multiplayer. Keep em' commin for the Wii, it deserves good games like this.

A Great Game
Pros: Great Game to use with the zapper online or offline the graphics are pretty good really good detail on the people and the zombies look really cool
Other Thoughts: I choose the Wii version over the xbox360 sense I can't see paying 59.95 a year to play the game online its like paying twice for the game.Just to be able to play it online.

This games is made for the WII
Pros: Game play, graphics, and overall control. You have the option to play with the Wii remote, a regular game pad controler, or a gun. Honestly the game is much more fun playing with the motion controls, you can really get into it. This game is a great stress reliever. Online play is smooth and much better than I expected.
Cons: I would advise getting a gun to really get the true feel of the game.
Other Thoughts: I wish there was a bundled package with a gun to go with the game. (Hint, Hint, newegg.
