I'm a big fan of the third person genre & I only bought a Wii recently after discovering I could get some of my favourite 3rd person PS2 games for it - with updated graphics & better controls. I figured that if Resident Evil 4 (made for Wii in 2007) was even better than the PS2 original, then there would, by now, be a great deal of original Wii games to choose from that were at least of a similar standard...and they'd be CHEAP - which they usually are.
After quite a few disappointments I stumbled across this game for £3 and took it home not expecting too much - & it's great! First things first, the controls are incredibly simple & the initial stages are just challenging enough to draw you in. Secondly, neither the cut scenes or the story line are over-elaborate or too invasive & I don't have to sit through 5 minutes of dialogue every ten seconds thinking 'this is all fine & dandy, but I want to play a computer game!' - the game cuts right to the chase & the main focus is almost instantly the gameplay itself, complimented with well-woven cinematics. That intuitive sense of who your character is that is essential to all good 3rd person games is easy to find through the fluid, evolving action based gameplay.
The graphics aren't amazing, the characters aren't particularly stylish or interesting - this game is all about action & FUN!
So far I'm hooked!
