I thought I was down with Data East, but reading your review made me realise that my memories of them are both as confused and hazy as your own are just hazy.

For instance if you said 'Data East' to me before this review, I would say 'Ikari Warriors, Heavy Barrel...' uh, then I'd retract Ikari Warriors realising it was a mistake. I'd add Dragon Ninja. Then I'd stare blankly.

Some games listed in this wii thing I knew (like Lock'n'Chase, Burger Time and Express Raider), but didn't know they were Data East. Especially the first two.

So it's been educational.

I totally agree with the control criticisms. This has always been an area where developers generally seem to do a crap job with these retro comps, and they seem to do a particularly bad job on the Wii.
