the camera angels spoil the game. You have no real control over the camera. also the "mini-games" in this are far to precise to be fun they are just hard. other than that the graphics were OK and the environment was good looking.

The point of playing any video game is to have fun. And this game delivers in spades. Multiplayer is crazy fun. The graphics are weak, but passible. The control is the best I have seen on the Wii. I want to see more top down shooters that play like Alien Syndrome. I want a Wii Gauntlet asap. This is one of those games where the good out shines the bad. The story is generic, but so is Halo, so is RFoM, so is FF, so are countless other games. The camera is a tad out of wack, but you can rotate it easily with the nunchuk. The bosses can be epic, but you can always find a way to win. The graphics are weak, but the screen is filled with gun fire, enemies, flashing lights and effects. So many games draw pretty enviroments but save for one or two things remain empty, AS will swarm you. You could point out three or four reasons to not play the game, and I can only counter with one good reason to play it: Its fun. This is the way games should be 300MPH, shooting in all directions, white knuckles, crazy chaos, and it gets better the more players you have playing. Do yourself a favor, rent it. Don't expect Halo, but get ready for a fun ride. Oh and to the people that play 10 mins, call it boring, and slam the game...sucks to be you, your missing out. Of course it starts slow, they are giving you story background, and allowing you to learn the controls and game menues. By the time I hit stage 5 I was hooked, 25 stages later I was unable to put the thing down. Great Game, and a great suprise.
