The Wii Balance board is perfect for 2 player Time Crisis, one half of the board per person. Tony Hawks might even be in the pipeline, though IMHO, they suck big time. Personally I'm dripping with anticipation at the thought of playing Mario Kart Wii as I've played MKDD and the DS version to death.
