CID The Dummy – Nintendo Wii

Testfreaks blog
14 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Cid the Dummy is a game that you should avoid at all costs, I thought it might be cute for my kids, but it’s just too frustrating to be any actual fun. It really has no redeeming qualities to speak of except maybe for the fact that it’s a cute idea. It could have been an interesting and fun game, but it seems as though it was rushed out just to get another Wii title out there to capitalize on the popularity of the console.
  • Pros: Cute idea
  • Cons: Bad graphics, Terrible controls, Horrible acting

  • Excerpt: In one of Nintendo’s more bizarre twists, comes this platforming game featuring a crash test dummy. Should gamers buckle their seatbelts and brace for the crash and burn? Nintendo has not been a slouch about producing games for its motion sensitive Wii game system, discerning the market’s eagerness for more titles. CID The Dummy is one of the company’s latest creations, an action platforming game with a quirky crash test dummy for a hero.

  • Conclusion: The developers, Oxygen, really need to start playing the classic platformers if they want to get the formula right next time. In any case, stay away from CID the Dummy at all costs. Nothing works here.

CID the Dummy Wii Review

DarkZero
3 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Just when games like House of the Dead: Overkill and Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars start to re-affirm your faith in the potential of Wii games; something like CID the Dummy comes along and smashes all of your hopes and dreams into tiny little pieces. Perhaps naively, I was actually cautiously optimistic about playing this game.

CID The Dummy [Wii] Review

WiiDS.co.uk
25 April 2009
  • Excerpt: The game starts with CID breaking free of his crash test duties and declaring that he wants to do more with his life. Luckily for him the inventor of the Crash Impact Dummy, Professor B.M. Werken is in a dilemma that requires the help of a hero. It turns out his daughter, MIA, has been kidnapped and he needs CID to rescue her for him. There’s a tutorial that you can play through before starting the main game.
  • Pros: Might be fine for younger gamers, Simple 3-D platform game, Short game (in this case a good thing)
  • Cons: Poor sound design, No replay value, Awful controls
