An old fashioned LucasArts style graphic adventure, as seen through the eyes of Capcoms Japanese developers, this is one of the Wiis very best games. Zack the pirate is able to use objects around him, as well as employ Wiki the flying monkey to turn animals into tools (!). This results in a series of bizarre--but perfectly logical--puzzles as you try to recover all of Barbaros treasure. The graphics and use of the Wii remote are excellent, and its a great game to play either with the kids or as an amusing brainteaser on your own.HARRISON DENT

The graphics of the game were one of the major attractions to the game for me. I love the cartoon style graphics just what I bought a Wii for. The cut scenes are entertaining and vibrant and the sound effects are nothing to sneer at either.
One major problem is the old demon of the Wii remote and its lack of responsiveness to many movements. This for me was a major hassle is some parts of the game, primarily in the timed bits where you are say falling from a cliff and you need to grab something and do something with it. This can be enormously frustrating as the Wii remote may not react to your movement and you will lose a life. Still this is a minor quibble, the main problem for me was the repetitiveness of some of the puzzles and the lack of engagement I felt. In games like monkey island and broken sword when your not solving puzzles there is other things to do which makes a refreshing break. No such luck in Zack and Wiki.
All in all a bit above average I would give three and a half stars if I could. Buy it if you have the money to spend but it isnt a must have.
While this game is suitable for children, don't be put off by the kiddie graphics. It's an adventure game with some really tough puzzles so in some ways adults will get more out of it.
Think of it like Shrek - a kiddie film but one that adults can appreciate just as much.
I've only had it a few days but it really is brilliant. The Wii controls are brilliant in this game, and that seems to be the point of it - embracing the next gen Wii controls.
The point of the game is to conquer a series of puzzles in order to find treasure chests that contain parts of an old ghostly pirate. Its done in the traditional point and click style of the Monkey Island and broken sword games. The wii remote though gives the genre a new lease of life as the gesture controls work so well.
Most of the point and click adventures in the past contained puzzles which were always solved by the player finding and combining certain items
in order to progress. The same basic principle is used in Zak & Wiki but taken on a huge step as by gesturing the wii remote you can use the Items you find rather than just clicking on them. This is great, because it gives the puzzles so much more depth. Now its not only what Items you need, but how do you use them? Opening umbrellas whilst falling off a cliff, cranking leavers, Using hammers to whack moles, sawing through wood the list just goes on and on, and offers a new level of immersion to an ailing genre.
One of the things that made Monkey Island great was the script and the sense of humour. While Zak & Wiki could never claim to have the intelligent script or wit of the Monkey Island series, it does make up for it with excellent visual gags as well as oozing charm from every pore.
I would strongly recommend EVERY wii owner to buy this game. Its fantastic for all ages. Its HUGE (40 hrs plus - apparently). It uses the Wii controls brilliantly, and if everyone buys it then we may see companys other than Nintendo really using the Wii to its full potential.
This game wouldn't work on the PS3 or 360, its something uniquely Wii and something all Wii owners should own. BUY IT!
