GameShark writes: "The Hardy Boys: The Hidden Theft came out last year on PC in hopes of bringing the popular Hardy adventures into the interactive arena. Sad to say, the results were uneven. Now a year later game publisher Dreamcatcher, a company apparently full of eternal optimists, has released a Wii version of the same title. A year having passed since the PC release, I hoped XPEC might have cleaned up some of the problems that plagued the PC version. No such luck. For good or ill (mostly ill) the game looks and plays exactly as the PC version did."
