Good attempt but not perfect
on 11 August 2010
Having read the only review on here at the moment, I wanted to say that I really don't agree with the previous reviewers totally negative comments. I will say good for you Sally if you got through it in 3 hours. Personally I don't play for that kind of time period generally, but that's not a criticism of anyone who does.
What I have played of it so far I quite like, though it's not perfect by any means. Very American imitations of quaint English Cockney's going on, which always annoys the hell out of me. Do American's that visit here and the ones visited by the English not pay attention to dialect and accent? Is it too much to ask that we hear real English people speaking acted parts in productions created in 2010? Anyway, that is my real gripe so far, but if you put that aside, I do quite like the rest. The graphics in Titanic are really quite nicely done in my opinion and the puzzles are not the hardest in the world, but okay.
By the way, this title has been available for a while now on PC and Mac as a download and does have a demo period if you search for it. The demo may be a good way of deciding if you like it enough to by the Wii title.
I think I should add that the last time a played an adventure game was on a PC and that was 7th Guest and the 11th Hour. I do play a reasonable amount of Wii games, but it's not my number one hobby. They tend to be sport and racing based titles on disc but I play a fair amount of WiiWare titles, so that may explain why I think the way I do about this particular title.
Titanic will probably appeal to casual gamers and possibly to those with an interest in Titanic itself, but don't go into this thinking you are getting a serious effort at recreation. At the end of the day this is a game that is released at £15 and I think you should keep in mind that other new titles for the Wii tend to be nearer £30, so I think you do get what you pay for.
