Wii virtual console releases for this week

Rounding up the virtual console releases for the week of 2/4.


These two releases are sure to spark some childhood memories. Who doesn't remember plunging $20 in quarters on a little game called Operation Wolf?

  • Operation Wolf (1989, NES, 500 Wii points): What started as an arcade light-gun game eventually made its way to the NES. Battle through stage after stage and defeat the terrorists before you run out of bullets and grenades.

  • Columns III: Revenge of Columns (1993, Genesis, 800 Wii points): What many describe as the long lost cousin of Tetris, Columns was the Genesis' flagship puzzle game. By the time the second sequel hit, most of the buzz had cooled. Adding in special attacks and new jewels didn't breathe enough life back into the series.
