HOW DOES THE GAME LIVE UP TO IT’S EXPLANATION/BOX ART? (5/10)
This 3-D cover explodes with all the things that you would have been excited for ten years ago. Skeletons, sharks, giant bugs, and GUNS splatter this zooming cover. But, what is this exactly?
Well apparently you are the only hero that can save the world when the movies come alive and start attacking the planet!
Now the back of the box does explain that it is a shooter and you’ll have survive/survive/survive, but if you have an untrained eye to the normal random back of the box pictures. You might not see that this game is a Rail Arcade Shooter. ( A rail shooter means, you don’t control the camera at all. You’re just hear to point and shoot)
P.S. Did i mention you get to wear 3-D glasses if you’d like?
HOW IS THE GAME PLAY? (4/10)
Well at first this game seems really lame and honestly it is. It doesn’t really give anything new to the arcade rail Shooter world. (Rail shooter also means you DO NOT control your character) The graphics are pretty bad, the worlds don’t look that great for this generation, and some of the ways the enemies attack are impossible to stop unless you are playing multiplayer. (Which i doubt really helps that much)
Sidenote: This game is a lot easier on the WII than it is on the Xbox 360 since you can just point your WIImote at the television and fire. So the game play scored a 8/10 on the WII.
HOW DOES THE GAME LIVE UP TO IT’S GENRE? (3/10)
Rail shooters are generally meant for arcade play. There are some great ones out there. (Time Crisis, House of the Dead) This one isn’t in the top shop for your library. It does have some pretty quick achievements if you are going for some quick score, but other than that it’s not good at all.
WII- Most of the above is the same. This game isn’t really good, unless you just want another point and fire game to play with your friends.
THE ‘GAME OVER’ ALL? (40% for XBOX360 / 53% on the WII)
As far as i know there is no light gun for the 360 as of yet. Probably because Rail shooters like this one are pretty dead in the water. No one really wants to play arcade style games like this anymore unless you have a gun. The reticle moves horribly across the screen causing you to miss half of your shots, and makes you annoyed more then happy.
But, on the WII the game is kind of so easy that you don’t really care, and the system already has so many games like this already.
When playing it multi-player it was a little bit better. But, that was probably because more people making fun of the same bad thing, is a lot more fun.
