Columns III: Revenge of Columns is a capable puzzler in many respects, but falls well short of the appeal of its own predecessor. You'd be better off spending your 800 Wii Points on a download of the original Columns, which is already available on the Virtual Console and has been since the Wii launched in 2006. It's a better version of the Columns design, as this retooling into a constant one-on-one versus puzzler just isn't as much fun as taking on the stack by yourself. But don't feel bad, Columns III. Nobody remembers Tetris 2 either.
You would be much better off buying the original Columns or one of the other puzzlers such as Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine which are also available on the Virtual Console. Columns III is likely to be a bit of a disappointment for anyone willing to take a chance on it.
