Clever idea for a game with some nice visuals for the wii- let down badly by poor controls

Excerpt: This game looks like such a cool one. I mean the name Ninjabread man - a total winner! Unfortunately not no. I thought the idea as running around as our little biscuit friend would be fun and pretty damn satisfying. However only so much of beating and killing cupcakes with scary faces can make up for what is quite a shoddy game. The game is repetative, i know most games in reality are but there is no depth to this one.
It's only got one star because I can't give it none

Summary: I bought the game when it was in a sale a few months ago, played it for the first time today and probably won't bother again. The controls are awful and only just playable, the camera movement is awful and confusing, the animation is jerky. I resent the wasted electricity and wiimote battery charge this has cost me. I'd have had more fun setting fire to fivers and burning my fingers doing it.
Summary: Was really excited about the new game with the awesome title until after 5 mins i was still trying to double-jump on the stupid lollipops so my sister and i both gave up. How this was allowed to hit the shelves i honestly have no clue.
Summary: I bought this for my sons for christmas to go with their Wii. Stupidly thinking my 5 and 10 year olds would have fun playing it. After having a go myself and the whole family having a go at how poorly I was doing, my hubby took over. He soon realised it was the game at fault not me! The little so and so will not always attack the cakes, getting you killed and meaning any progress has to be done all over again! He won't jump when you ask him too, but swipes instead!
Summary: I generally agree with the earlier reviews. My 11 and 13 year old got very frustrated with this game and refused to play it after about half an hour. I could only play it for any period of time once I discovered that button z allows you to jump. Attempting to use the nunchuck as the game suggests is wiimote throwingly frustrating! There are only 4 levels in this game. One of those is the usual training mission. The gameplay is simplistic, frustrating and repetitive.
Fails to deliver the gaming quality promised by the art work

Summary: Bought this game on a whim after just buying my wii, thinking it'd be a fun platform to start off my wii-journey. Bitterly dissappointed: the controls are inconsistent and awkward, the character either moves at a foot crumblingly slow pace or faster than a bolting bunny at the race track.
