Marines: Modern Urban Combat will certainly not be the best shooter you'll ever play, but it's shaping up to be a surprisingly solid FPS as far as Wii games are concerned. Mixing realistic one-shot-kill gunplay (a rarity on Nintendo's console) with some simple and effective squad tactics in tight city environments, it has practically no competition whatsoever. Early reports indicate that respawning enemies and some patchy graphics might rear their ugly heads- but otherwise it's coming together surprisingly well. Will it put the big names to shame? Probably not. But for £12.99, realistic shooter fans will be able to get their hands on some Wii action in six days' time.
