Deadly Creatures

I'm definitely going to rent it once it's out. I've been really wanting to try it.

Hopefully, this is the turn for the Wii to start having good games come out on a regular basis again.

Yeah, not getting my hopes THAT high...

IGN reviewed it and gave it an 8/10 along with an Editor's Choice award. They've been pimping this game for awhile and what they say in the review makes it look pretty good!

Supposed to be really atmospheric and eerie, with what they call a sort of "Metroidian" design to how you explore new areas. So I'll definitely check this out.

I saw something on this previously, and have been really wanting to play it. I am really curious about the gameplay and all that now that it is out. Anyone have anything to say about that?

Just got it today, maybe will play it once i beat Albert Simon in shadow hearts (and finish my homework..)

Many players are rating this game fairly well while magazines and official sites give above mediocre to above average scores

It seems that the reviewers seem to rate the game based off of how much effort went into the game instead of how fun the game is. I have no idea though. I've been watching this game for months and will eventually give it a shot.

So has anyone picked this up yet? I'm probably going to get it in the next couple weeks.

Oh, I was also wondering something: did anyone else see that Gametrailers video of the motion capture on the scorpion? I'm just wondering if those moves were really done by the scorpion or if that was their work put in after.

That was all hand keyed. There's no way to motion capture a scorpion. That was a pretty funny trailer though.

How is this? It looks interesting, although the idea doesn't really appeal to me at first glance. It looks like a decent platformer, and some the concept of being really small sounds cool. There was a screenshot of a broken cellphone that looked real cool.

I got and finished this game over the weekend. Great game, a lot of fun, and some very epic situations. There are a few glitches, such as a twitchy camera, and some character clipping, but even so, the rest of the game more than makes up for those little issues. Graphically the game is very nice, a good looking Wii title. The animation is really smooth and realistic, and the Scorpion finishing moves are a ton of fun to do, even if there is no penalty for failure during the finishing move. There are some really cool environments too.

The sound design is also excellent, with insects and lizards making loud roars and hisses. The music and background sound really fits the setting. Dennis Hopper and Billy Bob Thornton do a great job as well, creating interesting and menacing characters. The ending is a little anticlimactic, unfortunately. But the journey there is really neat. Definitely worth picking up if you own a Wii and are looking for something a little darker. 7.8/10

Wow. I remember the trailer for this from about a year or so ago, and I thought it looked like a fun concept.

I'm glad the reviews have been surprising (for a Wii title), so I definitely will check this game out.

This is one of those games I definitely hoped would turn out well. Gaming in general (i.e. not just the Wii) needs more alternative games like this... outside of the typical genres / game mechanics. (As long as they work, that is...)
