Summary: My son loves this game! It's mildly educational. It's rated for teens because of swearing and alcohol use by the two humans that sometimes appear in the game. I don't really understand the purpose of these people or the swearing. I think that could have easily been left out and then I would give this game a 5 star rating. To be honest though, my son is 11 and he hears much worse on TV or out in the real world than he hears in this game.
Summary: I picked this game up cheap and honestly it sat there for over a year before finally I picked it up and started playing it. I am amazed that this game went under the radar. Yes, there are some control frustrations at first and some camera problems that keep this from being a perfect game, however, the originality, the fun, and the awesomeness of performing a brutal finishing combo by a scorpion more then makes up for it.
Summary: Sooo I just passed this game last night with almost 100% completion. The ideas are great and it almost all blends together. It has flaws but with that said its still one of the better original games i've played in a while and deserved more sales. Pros Nice Graphics. Combat is varied Cool Story that connects to insects Great sound. Level design can be very fun and its cool crawling all over the place. Good voice acting by A list stars. Cons Camera can suck really bad.
Summary: This game was pretty fun. Even though at times wandering around was boring, it was exciting to beat bosses. And the graphics and the effects were amazing and realistic. I would recommend this to people that like to see animals battle and collide. And personally the scorpion is a ferocious animal.
Summary: I would recommend this game if you have a wii and are in need of action games. Needless to say, if you ever dreamed of being a scorpion or a tarantula, then this is your game! It's a very original concept that I haven't seen before in a game. I love moving around as these creatures and looking at the world through their perspective. The story with billy bob thornton and dennis hopper is irrelevant what you actually do.
Summary: Deadly Creatures has a great concept. You play as either a Scorpion or a Spider, and use their abilities to navigate a desert environment. The human story unfolding around these small creatures is very interesting. A great concept well executed, with great graphic and sound and a high sense of danger on every turn. Deadly Creatures is a great game at a great price.
Summary: This is a fun game, if a little short. The novelty of playing something that you'd typically see on a nature program is interesting. The game play does become a little repetitive, but the cinematic elements of combat help keep things interesting. It uses the Wiimote gesture based control actions in a fairly well thought out fashion-- attack combos really felt like the system was built around the Wii platform rather than as an afterthought.
Summary: This odd little gem could probably only have appeared on the Wii, which is known for quirky, offbeat titles. Deadly Creatures is set in the American Southwest, and alternate levels let you control a scorpion or a tarantula, each with unique abilities and combat moves for you to unlock. The game is played with nunchuck/ wii remote and some motion controls are integrated into the advanced combat techniques.
Summary: This game has been everything I thought it would be. I haven't gotten very far, but that's more to blame on my lack of gaming skills rather than game flow. If you are tired of all the 'classic' scenarios in gaming (i.e.- racing, shoot 'em up, or levels), than this game is nice for you. The free-roaming ability of it to let you just go whereever you like much like the actual creatures is great.
