Summary: Highly reccomend this game if you haven't never played it and like to try Wii games. I looked it up in a top Wii game list and bought it because of the nice reviews. If you like point and click adventure games, you'll love it. Support.
Summary: I'm into this game a lot and I enjoy playing it. I like the gameplay style and the fact that it is loosely Japanese-based. The characters are quirky and the puzzles are brilliant. It's a lot of fun, but it also requires some thinking to get through the levels. If you're looking for something less hardcore that requires a decent amount of brain activity, I recommend it.
If you ignore the awful name, this is an amazing game

Summary: The game is really a turn down. However, the game is one gem many players must experience because it will test your mind and is very punishing for small mistakes. My wife and I cannot stop laughing at the amount of fails I was getting. I recommend this game to anyone!
Summary: At the beginning, I didn't expect too much from this game, I was just curious about it. After a couple of days playing it, I just couldn't stop. Great game. About the service, a fast speed shipping, delivered in a very short time.
Summary: I bought this based on the good reviews and with the idea that my family could solve the puzzles together. So far this has worked just as planned. We're probably half way through, and we're having a lot of fun, and having some great family interaction. My son is 8 and my daughter is 5. He loves it and has figured out some tricky parts all by himself, which is a great confidence builder.
Summary: This is a true underrated gem. Great puzzles (sometimes with multiple solutions), really great use of motion sensing and point controls, and the characters are very likable and fun. Don't be fooled by the cute graphics, this game goes a bit to the hard side on the final levels, but you can always play with friends so they can help solve the puzzles (they can use other wiimotes to point and sketch things onscreen). Do yourself a favor and buy this, you won't regret it.
Flawed at times--But a fun, addictive, and underappreciated puzzler

Summary: Like many other gamers, this title initially passed me by. I stumbled upon it after enjoying Toki Tori (Wiiware) and looking for a similar puzzler experience. The basic premise of the game is you find a series of objects and have to use them in the correct places (and more often than not, in the correct order) in order to complete each level. Motion controls are used throughout. For example, you might find yourself fishing or turning a crank.
Summary: I LOVE puzzle games. This summer I've played alot of them to pass time while I enjoy my summer break and used to play them alot when I was little. I found this game in Gamestop for about $12. I read the back of the box to see how much there is to do which looked to be alot and it sounded like fun. At first it was fun. It was original. I've never played a puzzle game like Zak and Wiki before. The graphics are really neat. I love the cartoony feel of the game.
Summary: I bought this game based on the reviews here. I rated this game based on my son's opinion since he is the one I bought it for. Well, my son LOVES this game. It is the first game that he can actually handle (besides a Diego one we rented a couple of years ago that he completed in 2 hours), and, although it is "timed", every time you interact with something, time stops to give you time to do it.
