Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
Excerpt: Wild Earth African Safari is one of the most interesting video games to appear on the Wii. Majesco Entertainment made sure families could experience this magazine creating video game. The player must get a certain amount of pictures of different animals, plants, etc. for articles that appear in a fictional magazine. This is all done in Africa, and the zoom lens becomes the players friend. Get to close to the animals for too long and it is game over.
Conclusion: For an all ages title that clearly caters to younger players, Wild Earth: African Safari is substantially entertaining on the Wii. Taking pictures of anything you like in any way you choose is excellent. Just be sure not to step in any elephant droppings.
Summary: Wild Earth: African Safari
is still a somewhat fun and relaxing expedition despite its problems, but unfortunately becomes too bogged down in questionable level design and horrible graphics to come recommended for most gamers. However, at a budget price this is still worth a rental for players that enjoyed other similar exploration games like
, and it’s a solid option for parents wanting to teach younger children about the wonders that exist in Africa.
Pros: Simple and fun exploration covering most of the wildlife found in Africa., The game teaches you about what you’re seeing along the way., The voice actors are entertaining in their roles.
Cons: Unappealing and sparse environments with low-poly objects and generally blurry textures., Animals look fine when standing still or moving slightly, but generally have poor animations once they’re actually in motion., Inconsistent framerate and serious draw-in problems., Invisible walls in illogical places.
Conclusion: African Safari constitue assurément pour les jeunes joueurs (7-14 ans) un sympathique et instructif voyage au coeur de l'Afrique. Les plus âgés, cependant, bouderont ses graphismes peu soignés ainsi que la superficialité de son gameplay.
