Nintendo WiiWare FPS Games Data: Aliens vs. Waterguns?

March 4, 2010

In 2009, there were two FPS games released on Nintendo’s WiiWare service.
Both WiiWare FPS games were released by Hudson Entertainment.

Onslaught was released on February 23, 2009, and was the first FPS game to be released on the WiiWare service.  Onslaught is available for 1000 Wii Points, which is the equivalent of $10.

Water Warfare was the second FPS game released by Hudson Entertainment on WiiWare.
Water Warfare released on June 29, 2009 and is available for 800 Wii Points, the equivalent of $8.

How much do Wii owners play WiiWare FPS games?
Take a look at the stats from two weeks worth of data:

Number of Players Reporting Data:
Onslaught has approximately 20,380 players reporting data on the Nintendo Channel.
Water Warfare has approximately 7,881 players reporting data.
Player Increase Over Last Week:
Onslaught had 152 more players reporting data this week, over last week.
Water Warfare had 135 more players reporting data this week.
“Total” Game-Play Hours Reported/Increased:
Onslaught had 99,778 Total Hours reported this week, an increase of 1,305 hours from last week.
Water Warfare had 60,943 total hours reported this week, an increase of 1,340 hours.
GameRankings.com Review Score Averages:
Onslaught has a 69.60% review score average based on five(5) reviews.
Water Warfare has a 72.60% review score average based also on five(5) reviews.
Thoughts:
I don’t own and haven’t played either Onslaught or Water Warfare.  I do find it interesting though, that the only two FPS WiiWare games, both already have data reporting on the Nintendo Channel.
Onslaught and Water Warfare both offer online multi-player.
Onslaught offers a 2-4 players online co-operative play through the game’s campaign.
Water Warfare offers up to eight(8) players in online battle matches, or local 2-player matches.
I think the online modes in both games have helped with the hours reported, and I’m glad to know Wii owners play FPS games, both retail and WiiWare.
Questions:
If you’ve played Onslaught and/or Water Warfare would you recommend them to other Wii owners that enjoy FPS games?  If you’ve played both games, and somebody wants spend Wii Points on just one game, which one would you recommend more?
If you aren’t familiar with either Onslaught or Water Warfare, you can view their trailers below(click HERE):
