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.
The best reason to not pick it up is, once again, the price. It's the sort of puzzler that would be fine as part of a compilation, but even at 800 Wii Points this would be dubious value. There's therefore nothing here to justify the additional 100 points on top. It reminds me most of the recent XBLA offering, TiQal, and that wasn't worth the price 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.
