Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars Review

Conclusion: Undoubtedly, Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars will not see as much commercial success as its quality warrants. The game is not perfect, nor will it appeal to everyone. However, Red Fly and Gamecock have done a great job of bringing a compelling adventure to the Wii that uses craftsmanship and care in its creation.
A quirky, surreal adventure with unique weapons building.

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.
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
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.
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
Excerpt: The game starts off with quite a short intro video, certainly by today’s standards. Not a bad thing, mind. Sometimes you want to just play the game without watching a 5 minute intro that could easily have been much shorter. It has a quirky vibe to it, almost B-movie in style but not quite. My first impression was that this is going to be a humorous, fun game to play. Mushrooms becoming conscious – who wouldn’t?
Pros: Concept of the game, The choice of weapons you can build, A few reasons to play after completion
Cons: Un-lockables feel a bit “samey”, Very frustrating on a couple of occasions, Fairly short game
