Deadly Creatures

Auracore MediaWorks
15 October 2009
  • Summary: See the world from a unique perspective in this skin-crawling adventure.
  • Pros: Unique and interesting perspective in a classic genre; fantastically eerie visual style; Brilliant sounds, especially with voice acting.
  • Cons: Camera occasionally lacks polish; the number of motion activated moves can become overwhelming; too few of the epic boss battles.

Spiders...Scorpions...Unwieldy Wii Controls

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: Foil the plans of some hillbillies as a scorpion and tarantula while fighting your way through a desert environment (no, seriously!) Graphics: The gameplay sequences and character models are nice, although the cutscenes are sometimes plagued by scan lines Sound: The minimal synth soundtrack is very evocative and the often-hilarious dialogue is delivered in a way that gives you a great sense of scale and space Playability: The basics work fairly well, especially...

Deadly Creatures Review

Cheat Code Central
25 July 2009
  • Conclusion: It's hard to pinpoint exactly just who Deadly Creatures is aimed at. It has received a teen rating, but it also has a lot of dark overtones. That said, it really is a game worth checking out should you be in the mood for something particularly grim. The combat and motion controls are less than perfect, but the level design and cinematic storytelling really steal the show. Deadly Creatures offers a rare perspective that's very entertaining, if only for a brief time.

Deadly Creatures Review

VideoGamer.com
19 July 2009
  • Excerpt: While some people can't stand games with blood and guts, monsters jumping out at them from dark corners and the mere site of a flickering light, others take it all in their stride. On the other hand, bugs, the kind that creep and crawl around the floor and leave a pool of mess when 'accidentally' trodden on, can make even the toughest shriek in fear. This reaction exactly what THQ is hoping for with its bug infested Wii game Deadly Creatures.

Expert Review

Game Informer
4 June 2009
  • Summary: A Bug's Life, this is not. Rather than give us cutesy versions of shiver-inducing arachnids, Deadly Creatures delivers a tarantula and scorpion that are just as fascinating (or revolting) as the real deal. Rainbow deserves credit for taking chances - telling a tale of greed and betrayal as seen through the pair's multifaceted eyes - but its execution ultimately suffers from iffy controls and a maliciously indifferent camera.

Deadly Creatures

  • Excerpt: Deadly Creatures opens with, surprisingly, a shades-of-noir narrative from Billy Bob Thornton. But truck into your local gamestop and you’ll probably look right past its box art, depicting a fearsome tarantula locked in mortal combat with a wily rattlesnake.

Deadly Creatures (Wii) Review

411mania.com
24 April 2009
  • Excerpt: The Wii is often criticized for not having the best third party support. Just glancing over my Wii collection, I only have a couple of third party titles. Sure, they’re out there, but when you’re playing the Wii most likely you’ll be playing a game made by Nintendo. Early 2009 seems to be dead set on changing this trend with games such as Mad World and House of the Dead Overkill, but there is one other title out there that you may not have heard of that joins the ranks...

  • Pros: One of the few titles that explores the untapped insect kingdom.
  • Cons: Not enough time spent terrorizing households.

Deadly Creatures

Thunderbolt Games

  • Excerpt: They’re watching you. They‘re not easy to spot, but they‘re there. Staring. Waiting . Maybe you’ll get lucky and catch them in the act. But chances are, you’ll never see them coming. In fact, you’ll probably feel them first; a slight tingly or itchy feeling on your back, or the slight but undeniable weight of something on your head. Something scratching, digging, tearing its way through your skin.
