When I started playing Chicken Blaster, it brought back bad memories of another game called Chicken Shoot (one of the worst Wii games I’ve ever played).
But Blaster is far superior to Shoot.
This game has better controls; it’s easier to move the camera about in a diagonal direction.
This game has better graphics. These chickens don’t look like bad cartoon cutouts that the ones in Chicken Shoot had.
This game can last longer. The game has eight levels which is fewer than Chicken Shoot, but each level is longer, and once you beat all eight levels, you can go for awards by performing feats in all eight levels.
What sort of feats? Beat a level in a certain time, use only the pistol, find all the powerups, avoid a certain number of eggs and so on. This add some needed content.
But not all is good for Chicken Blaster; there’s a forgettable survival mode that adds nothing to the experience. And I found the multiplayer aspect to be slapped on at the last minute.
And when you get down to it, it’s still just a simple shoot ‘em up with lacking graphics and content (eight levels are too little). Those looking for such a game will find it here.
But if you’re looking for something innovative and pushes the Wii system, Chicken Blaster isn’t it. SKIP IT.
