This review is from: Spyborgs (Wii) (Video Game)
This first appeared in 2008 as an interesting looking game. It was based around a saturday morning kids action show, which had five different superheroes each with their own cool powers, progressing through varied stages balanced between action and puzzles, usually solved with one of the special abilities of one of the characters. The levels were divided by 'commercial breaks' which included mini games satirically based around adverts of fictional products. As the first trailer showed, one of them involved mutant goldfish playing banjos in an advert for toilet unblocking stuff. It's quite simple, a game that involves that just can't be bad. Seriously! Overall, the game looked to be humorous and unique, and I among many others was looking forward to it.
It disappeared for about a year, but now it has reappeared, stripped of two of the main spyborgs, the kids action show feel, the minigames, the puzzling sections, and pretty much everything else that made the game look unique. All that remains is repetitive shooting and bashing. Followed by more shooting. And then some more bashing. I'm really disappointed that this game has changed like that, as it has not improved it at all. Okay, the graphics look nice, and I like it's attempt at adding 360 style achievements, but the old version was better. There are some puzzles in it, but they're very generic in terms of problem and solution. Another thing people have been praising is the focus on two player co-op, but quite often, games that focus too much on it become boring in single player. There may be some people that this will appeal to more, but I'm not one of them.
EDIT: In response to comments, I've played the game since and haven't changed my mind about it!

The game isn't even out yet. So why don't you save the "review" for when you actually know something about it.

You really shouldn't judge a game before playing it or seeing the final product. And only one of the characters actually shoots, the other two have melee attacks. There's also puzzle elements and upgrading.
