There aren't a lot of these types of adventure/action games on the Wii. But does that mean we should settle for six-year old ports? It may have been pretty cool at the time, but by today's standards Rygar is dull, with horrendous dialogue and a mixed bag of visuals. This feels like a pretty cheap attempt to cash in on a game and license Tecmo had lying around. Wii owners are starved for games with substance. Why not make an entirely new Rygar game with the remote and nunchuk in mind? Or how about an original Ninja Gaiden? Well, because dusting off an old game costs a lot less, of course. If you played Rygar on the PS2, there's not enough new here to warrant a trip back to Argus. But even if you missed it the first time around, there isn't much to recommend now.
