Wii-ware started slow, but now offers a burgening array of great games that can be downloaded straight to your Wii.
The demo feature recently added to the Wii Shop channel is brilliant. Harking back to the days of demo CD-ROM on the front of magazines, it feels like we haven't had much of a chance to play free tasters of console games in a long time. Even though buying retail means you have more tangible evidence to consider pre-purchase, it's not like you actually know whether you're going to enjoy the game until you play it.

LostWinds Winter of the Melodias on the Nintendo Wii is the platforming sequel to popular WiiWare launch title. The game has a lot to live up to.
