Perfect

Understand what CASUAL gaming is first.

If you want to kill some time with mutant ants, this game is awesome. Yeah, you pretty much just send ants where you want to get stuff, but its the uncomplicated appeal that gets you. It seems like a walk through the park until you come across bugs that kill your ants. Nobody likes to lose, especially after you've invested a little time in training your mutant ants to be stronger. As you progress and defeat the large 'boss' anthills, the bugs change element and get stronger. At one point, you have to predict where the flying bugs will be, because once your ants start to attack them, they'll fly off which can cause your mission to fail due to wasted time. This game isn't for anyone who is looking for super exploding action sequences. It IS a game meant for a CASUAL player, y'know, something you can pick up to play during commercials on tv or something. Getting more ants and trying to keep them alive isn't as easy as it seems. This game is gold, and i've been waiting to play it since the demo released on the Wii's Nintendo channel almost a year ago. I finally got it, and it's not going back anytime soon. Mostly because the later level bugs keep killing my ants!!!

Tedius and Boring

The game is styled like an RTS but there's only two types of command:

(1)Send all worker ants here
(2) Send all soldier ants here.

Basically after you've flagged where you want them to go you just sit there and watch.

Entertaining? Not so much.
