Excerpt: There was a time when you could buy anything that came from the big N and you'd be guaranteed a good time. It seems that with the Wii this is no longer the case, with average or worse games being passed off as great interactive experiences just because you play by moving your hands about.
Excerpt: Disaster: Day of Crisis is a Wii title developed by Monolith Soft and published by Nintendo. From the outset, this game defines itself as a “mature” title with it’s M OFLC classification, and (over)-use of the word “shit” early on and throughout the game. It’s almost as if the word shit is this game’s way of telling you that Nintendo does not equal “kiddie”.
Conclusion: A fun title that pays homage to every disaster and action movie ever. It can be great fun, brilliantly atmospheric, but is held back slightly by some poor graphics and occasional poor physics.
Pros: Multitude of play styles, Great music, Plenty of content to unlock, Lots of cursing!
Excerpt: Next time you're having a bad day, spare a thought for Raymond Bryce. He's already miffed at having lost his best buddy Steve a year ago to a hungry volcano, and then he's called into action when a rogue marine squad, SURGE, hijacks some nuclear warheads and kidnaps a seismology professor and his assistant. Who, by remarkable coincidence, is Steve's sister Lisa.
