This game looked kind of interesting, and definitely unique... but with so many negative reviews, I think I'll wait for a price drop or something.
Not for nothing, but haven't you realized yet that almost every game released for the Wii has some kind of negative undertone in the review?
I tend to agree, I think Wii games are knocked off 1/2 a point (on a ten point scale) as a matter of course just for not being HD, and there are some sites/mags that consistently underrate Wii games.
But you have to do a lot of fudging and adjusting to a 41%
I'm glad I'm not the only one who has noticed the Wii bias and you are right, the 10% off because the Wii is not "cool" or doesn't have HD doesn't condemn a game, but this game is unique and has a unique control scheme with a much slower pace than your average modern gamer is used too. Anotherwords you either get what they were going for in this game or you don't. I think most reviewers don't get it, that said most of the people that read the reviews probably wouldn't get it either, so in a round about way they are doing right by their readers.
I liked it, but I am open to new and old ideas whether they be in game play, pacing, story, control etc YMMV.
