A quirky, surreal adventure with unique weapons building.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that the game is rated "E10+" for this animated violence but players are not fighting against humans. Instead, combat, which has some animated blood, is against rodents, insects, and fungi that have begun to walk, talk and think after a mysterious meteorite has fallen to Earth. The game-play is probably made up of 50 percent combat, 25 percent exploration, and 25 percent puzzle-solving.

  • Conclusion: Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars is the kind of game I love to pull for. Out of the box it presents itself as a game steering far right from the pack and destined for cult status and umpteen sequels. But failing to institute any semblance of sound or original gameplay design is a monumental black mark no injection of visceral creativity can possibly hope overcome.
  • Pros: Creative visual design reminiscent of Psychonauts, Unique 50s sci-fi/techno driven score, Realistic physics
  • Cons: A boring platformer that plays far worse than it looks on the screen, Wasted opportunity with creating weapons from household goods, Another wasted opportunity with physics use

  • Summary: This is a pretty cool game and does add something different in the way of platform gaming for Wii. There are some aspects of it that could be improved on within the game strategically and with the combat controls but its a fun game none the less and certainly something to add to your platform collection

  • Excerpt: It’s kooky and competent, making exploring the well realised settings enjoyable and, though Pax doesn’t bring anything new to the plate, he’s still a fun addition to anyone‘s library.

  • Summary: I recommend that everyone who owns a Nintendo Wii rents this game. If you like it, support Red Fly and buy the game to encourage them to create a sequel or ten. I’d love to see more of this game!
  • Pros: -Amazing and fresh art design., -Technically impressive graphics for the Nintendo Wii., -Music and sound effects create the perfect atmosphere in combination with the visuals., -Very innovative and fresh concept., -Levels feel very cool once you realize what you’re exploring.
  • Cons: -Could be a bit longer., -Co-op could have been cool if it were a bit deeper., -Price seems a bit high for such a short game.

Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars Wii Review

  • Excerpt: Did you know that fungi are more closely related to animals than plants? The characters in Mushroom Men take that one step further, thanks to a strange meteor shower that grants them sentience, as well as deforming some of the woodland creatures into hideous angry mutants. You play as Pax, the sole survivor of his village after a horrific tribal war. He wanders into a village of some fellow Bolete-species mushrooms and ends up absorbing their sacred meteorite.

  • Conclusion: Mushroom Men uses modern presentation values and wonderful artistry to present what is essentially an old-school N64 era platformer. The result? A game you can't help but fall in love with.
  • Pros: Wicked artistry!, Clever, memorable level design, Innovative soundtrack, Hilarious in places, Attempts to incorporate multiplayer
  • Cons: Camera issues from ten years ago, Too short
