  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Unless you just can’t get enough of mini-game collections, lame licensed titles, neutered ports, and fitness “games” then your Wii library probably doesn’t stand more than 12 games tall. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Wii when it gets it right— No More Heroes was one of my 2008 favorites—but more often than not I find myself powering up the competition’s consoles because that’s where the good games are at.

  • Excerpt: Name: Deadly Creatures Genre: Action, Adventure Platform: Nintendo Wii Without getting into another speech on the ratio of good to bad on the Nintendo Wii, it’s pretty well known that the system didn’t enjoy the abundance holiday releases of its competition. With a few exceptions, the big companies seemed to skip over the Wii, despite its massive market share, and even Nintendo seems to have taken the year off.
