Those are some good games... but can you really consider Mad World to be a "hidden gem"? I remember it getting plenty of publicity when it came out.

Another great video, Metal Jesus. Boom Blox and Rhythm Heaven Fever are two of my favorite games on the Wii. They're also very inexpensive used!

Despite getting promoted heavily by Sega... it sold terribly (#207 according to VGChartz). Games like Scooby-Doo First Frights & Club Penguin: Game Day sold better.

Boy and His Blob is a awesome game! I picked this little beauty at a local Best Buy for $7.00 when it was on clearance.

Nice video reviews! Added your link to my Wii Thread. Thanks for showing your take on Tunguska, I have been thinking about this game. I have held off since the onscreen text seemed a little small, but your clip shows the words can be read clearly. A good point about the Wiimote works well as a Mouse. I find it very intuitive for onscreen cursor control games.

I love Mushroom Men and especially the off the wall soundtrack. I almost get a sense of the crazy music in the old PC game Neverhood, the same sort of vibe in it. Throw on all the neat tools such as that sticky hand you showed and continuous hover capability, a very good game. Really, anyone who has not been exposed to Mushroom Men should pick it up. My favorite among the games you reviewed this go around.
