IGN: Adventure Island: The Beginning Review

Adventure Island: The Beginning is an enjoyable, entertaining update to a classic franchise -- but it's one that doesn't seem to have been given much extra effort. Fans of the series will love that Master Higgins is back in action, running across the Island once again. But Hudson might have missed an opportunity here to make the character's revival a more memorable one, skipping out on obvious presentation improvements like widescreen support and tighter controls in favor of getting the game out the door a little bit quicker. It's fun, and worth its 800 Wii Point asking price. But maybe if Hudson does decide to move forward and develop the sequel that the subtitle of this one suggests should happen in the future, the company could take the extra time and offer a fuller set of features. (Like some of those other recent retro revivals have done.)

I thought it was well worth 8 dollors.
