this game made me want to puke.

the view was from above head. the scenting was extremely dark throughout several levels, so i couldn't see a thing. the other horrible part was there was a small selection of weapons

in my opinion the game alien syndrome was stupid, dont waste your time waiting for this game

p.s. i would only waste my time writing a review if the game was

Boy, I feel like I shouldn't even write a review because I didn't play the game long enough to really speak for it. At the same time, I wanted to share my thoughts on the game to give others a chance to avoid it!

I only played 2 hours of the game, but after that 2 hours, I just wanted to put it back into the envelope & mail it back. I actually played 1 hour, then I went away from it for 3-4 days. Then I tried to get into it again for an hour or so, and I just didn't like it at all.

What I liked:
Always start with the positives, right? The concept of the game was cool. I liked the Diablo in space type concept where you can upgrade equipment, attributes, and skills, etc, while you battle your way through the game. That is about it.

What I didn't like:
Controlling the camera rotation with the motion sensors in the NUNCHUCK was ridiculously horrible. One of the strengths of the wii control scheme in a game like this should be that you can kind of relax with the nunchuck in one hand the wiimote in the other (unlike a standard controller where your hands/wrists are glued together on a dual analog type XB360 or PS3 controller). You should be able to sit back with your nunchuck arm on the armrest of a couch & just move your thumb to control the guy on the screen. Here, you can't do that... if you do, the camera begins spinning around this top-down view. You are forced to hold your wrist level, which sucks. I don't like the top-down view in general, truthfully. And I think the running-out-of-ammo constantly stinks, too. It is pretty much an action shooter, so why give you limited ammo? The menu system stinks, too. I was constantly hitting the + instead of the - on the wiimote to get into the right set of menus. And there was very little variety in enemies the entire time that i played.

I didn't try the multiplayer, because I couldn't convince anyone that had seen the game to play with me.

All in all, pass this one up. Sorry for the rambling.

I wasn't necessarily expecting too much with this one. I was not disappointed. I would have to say that this type of game is not my niche. It reminded me of ultimate alliance with guns, but at least ultimate alliance had marvel characters. This game got played for about 30 minutes. I didn't like it.
