Performance

The single player is an ok game. It has a very Golden eye n64 feel to the action. And the multi player feels just like that too. The sword play is fun. But the action at times feels repetitive. Since all enemies in the same areas look the same. The slowing down time is a great feature. This adds a lot to the game play. (Think or Max Payne) I think the multi player needs some more options and everyone that has played gets a little annoyed at the controls at times when for some reason you find yourself spinning and looking at the ceiling. (Not unlike Golden eye before we all became killing machines) At this point its hard to tell if its a learning curve or a bit of control issues. Tuning up your Wii mote helps you somewhat. Id still recommends this game for the fun sword play and the multi-player, and decent single player worth checking out. But if you are only buying one game for your Wii this should be 3 on your list.

Great game...*IF* you know how to Wii

by Jason on 11/28/2007

This was the first game made purely for the Wii. As such, it has some very Wii-specific actions in it. You MUST know how to use the Wiimote and nunchuck properly, what all the buttons are, and why it makes a difference how you hold your wrist as you play. DO NOT get this as your first Wii game, or you will be so frustrated that you will never want to play it again. However, if you are Wii-proficient, then do not hesitate to make this game your own. You will appreciate the skill involved in the gameplay, the level of detail in the graphics and story, and the range of actions unique to the Wii.
