A fun, addictive, free-roaming game with lots to do and lots of replay value. It makes me wish that Rockstar's "Red Dead Redemption" was coming to the Wii.

GTA...the high school years...

As a fan of the "Grand Theft Auto" series, I had high expectations for this game. If you have played any of the GTA games, then the screen layout, HUD, and the basic overall set-up of this game will be very familiar to you. It's almost as if Rockstar took the GTA game engine and plugged in a high school setting (with less lethal weapons of course). There are plenty of things to do in the game. Missions, of course, mini-games, and side missions. Not to mention the "secret" items that need to be collected and so forth. To me, it really is just a re-worked version of any GTA game...just a different story with different surroundings.

I've only completed about 4% of the game and I'm already thinking about returning it to Gamefly...and here's why. First off, and maybe most importantly, I rented this for my Wii...and the gameplay just doesn't seem to work well on this console. I think this (for me anyway) is because I'm so used to playing GTA on my PS2. The controls often confused me and I had to really think about what I was trying to do and then, remember what button to push. If I played this same game on my PS2 I'd probably be much happier. Also, controlling the camera takes a lot of work between the nunchuck and the remote...just a hassle. Secondly, like I said before, there is A LOT to do in this game and I honestly don't know if I want to put in the time to get 100% completion.

I gave this game a ranking of 7 mainly because it's not a "bad" game... it just doesn't really seem to suit me playing it on the Wii. Overall, it's worth renting and trying out IF you have a lot of time on your hands to work through the control and camera issues...but, maybe it's just me. I would recommend playing this game on a system with "standard" type controllers.
