Dr. Mario was the perfect NES game. A bold, simple statement to start our review but never has a sentence rang so true in the ears of our peers. This was a game that combined mad colours, infectious soundtracks and a delightful twist on the classic Tetris formula. It is (in our opinion) the ultimate "one more go" game and epitomises the word "addictive". With such a big build up in place, it's extremely refreshing to announce that Dr. Mario & Germ Busters (also known as Dr Mario Online RX) has left all that was great about the original untouched but added little else. It's subjective as to whether that's a good or bad thing.
Basically what you're getting for 1000 points here is a revamped copy of the original Dr. Mario along with Brain Age 2/More Brain Training's "Germ Buster" minigame. The standard Dr. Mario game is played with the Wii Remote held like an NES controller while Germ Buster is played using the remotes pointing functionality. Both games essentially share the same presentation and mechanics, it being the control methods that set the games apart.
