Summary: The game's title does not do it justice. For a game that started out with the Wii system, the motion controls are fair, but for playing it now, the controls are very bad and have 75% chance of really working. If they combined Wii Motion Plus to this, it would be a perfected game. Some sounds are annoting constantly, but are ignorable. The game cover also doesn't do it justice. It makes the game appear childish and trivial.
Summary: Its such a shame that this game didn't sell. i once had a choice between this game and some other bad game but i bought the bad one. My brain must have been messed up then, this game is worth every penny! I would have bought this game but looks can be a little odd on the outside and they were. the graphics, gameplay and the way you use the wii remote bring this game to life!
Summary: one of my all time point and click games is strong bad cg4ap beacuse of the simple point and click but this game is great but has it draw backs . first the dificulty increses ssecond by second and the tips get very expensive . second it is weird that wiki is a flying monkey that looks like a pokemon with a ability to turn stuff into other stuff . like turning frogs ito bombs that makes no sense .
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.
Summary: Zack and Wiki is a point-and-click adventure game similar to things like Monkey Island. Your character, Zack, is a young pirate seeking a legendary treasure. Zack must travel through the world collecting items in order to find his way to it. Of course, this wouldn't be fun if the game didn't pull it off, but luckily this game did it excellent. You use the wiimote to move around and to investigate objects. It isn't always clear what you can take a good look at.
Summary: This game is awsome! I love the cartoon styled graphics in this game. When you look at it the graphics make it look like it's for little kids but it's actually pretty difficult. Some levels are can be frustrating but don't worry about getting stuck at the same place for months because it has a hint system in it. The controls are pretty simple, just point and click to move or move the remote the same way you would use the item you're carrying.
Summary: Zack and Wiki is such a tremendously good but sadly underrated game. I have to admit I didn't really want to try this game because it looked VERY kiddish but just like the old saying, looks can be deceiving. DO NOT let this game's cutesy anime graphics fool you, this game starts out pretty easy but get insanely challenging as you go on. The whole point of the game is trying to figure out how to get to the treasure in each and every level.
Summary: This game is excellent. I am an adult with 3 small children. The game is challenging for everyone. The game does have some very complicated puzzles that would no doubt frustrate anyone, especially young children. My 9 year-old and I give each other hints back and forth to get us through without giving away the whole thing. Puzzles are on par with Zelda games and can get quite intricate. Especially with the price drop, this game is worth every penny.
Summary: Seriously, if you haven't played this game shame on you. The islands you go to are puzzles within many puzzles and are quite complex as you move on.But, it is "barrels" of fun (Har, Har!) and worth buying especially with the new price tag. How you interface with other objects with the IR does not feel "gimmicky" at all if that's a worry, for the challenge the length is perfect and you can play it longer if you so choose, and the story line is not as fleshed out as I...
