Mercury Meltdown Revolution (Wii): You'll be the one having a meltdown when you get stuck - and ...
14 November 2008
Summary: While my boys had the PS2 the only games they got for it where for birthdays or Christmas as they were quite expensive and seemed to be mainly in the shoot'em up, driving type genres, not really something mums were into. Having said that I did buy them singstar with microphone as a surprise one Christmas and their excitement at seeing a PS2 game soon turned to anguished cries of "You bought that for yourself didn't you"!!! Ooops caught out again.
Pros: really cheap, addictive, suitable for all the family, colourful and fun
Cons: Difficult to finish, you don't see the hours going by
Summary: When I noticed this game in the shop I picked it up, had a quick scan of the back and thought it would be my type of game. I had never heard of it before and not seen any reviews or adverts on it so was unsure of what it would be like. The idea of the game is to guide you blob of mercury through a variety of levels using the Wii remote to guide it through.
Conclusion: This is a good game, but not a great one. The puzzles are tricky from the outset, but not so hard as to prevent progress. You will need a steady hand and some lateral thinking to achieve the highest scores, but the locked mini-games can be unlocked quickly by collecting bonus stars. The only problem is the lack of 2 player action. The main game is 1 player only and I can see no way of playing the party games against a friend, as it suggests you can.
Conclusion: i bought this game last year expecting it to be improved from the highly fun but hard original. i found the levels sort of the same and even though they added some things, it could have been made a little more different. mabye the jump from psp to the wii was a little too big for mercury but there wasn't the same feeling to continue after you fail as there was in the original. there are much better games for the wii in my opinion.
Excerpt: Este es uno de los juegos más simples que te puedes encontrar para una consola. Su propósito es sencillo: llevar la bola de mercurio a través del laberinto hasta el final... pero no es la bola lo que movemos, si no el escenario, de manera que cuando entra más de una bola en juego es la mar de complicado ponerlas todas en su posición.
