First impressions when starting a run down the virtual mountains of Blur: they’ve got some nice lighting, looking directly at the sun at the top of the slope makes for some beyond-Gamecube graphical effects; this is hard to control, using the nunchuk for movement, the Wiimote for tricks; I don’t get it; I keep falling down, followed by some violent […]
