My son gave me a Wii points card and I debated over what to get. Several games interested me, including Stonekeep. The game hadn't gotten much attention at all and what few reviews I read, both by individuals and gaming sites, frowned severely on it.
But I have found over the years that I frequently like games that others discard. And I liked the original Stonekeep. So what the heck, I thought.... I'll take a chance.
45min of gameplay later and I came to the conclusion that this had been a total waste of Wii points. Wizard77 is right: terrible, terrible controls, mush graphic's, a worthless ally, and the same-looking mazes/puzzles/enemies no matter where I went.
I can't help but wonder: do any developers use "gamer off the street" outside input on a title before it releases anymore? I'm not sure what Interplay had in mind when they developed this game, but fun it is not.
