great gaming! the extras are great-particularly the weapons explanations. The higher levels become very tactical so its not just mindless shooting at stuff. It seems that every action you take has a response- if you take a different tactic, the Germans respond differently so replays are not the same old thing.
very good.

I own both Road to Hill 30, and Earned In Blood. They are some of my favorite games. It was cool to hear that BIA: Double Time was coming for the Wii! After renting it, I realized it was the same two game I had grow to love, now on the Wii! I was happy and sad at the same time. New name... Same two games... Great buy if you do not own the first two games already. If, you do. You won't need to buy this one.

I owned the previous two games on the xbox, Road to Hill 30 and Earned in Blood. Both were awesome games and were one of my favorites. Double Time is both of these games in one package. This may sound incredible, but unfortunately manyy things in this game do not deliver. Like:

-Bad controls
-Wierd button mappings (ex: C is to crouch, Z is to look down the sights.. etc)
- No Multiplayer

This doesnt mean the game is bad though. It still is the games that made the series famous. It still is a legendary campaign. However, the controls nearly ruin the experience.
There is another control option called "classic" which basically is Goldeneye style which works surprisingly well.
There is also no bounding-box options, so basically the camera will only turn once you get to the very edge of the screen.

The reason I gave it 6 was because it is a great game that is flawed from controls. Occasionally, the pointer also doesnt line up to where the barrel of the gun is, which is annoying.
You also cant look down the sights, it simply zooms in instead.

So, if you loved the previous games, I would rent this. But if you are a controls fanatic and liked the controls of Metroid Prime 3 or Medal of Honor: Heroes 2, I wouldnt buy this game.

Bottomline: Its worth the rent, but not the buy.
