OK this game absolutely sucks. i honestly don't know how this got past the game testers.
the graphics are really nice, the color scheme is moderate, and the visuals are top notch... but you see, i don't know anybody that plays a game to look at pretty colors. sure graphics are important, but he game has to be good enough to play.
the game play of this game is so beyond horrible that if there was a lower rating it would still have to go past -999999. Lets start with the controls, using the wiimote in a tilting matter isn't exactly easy, there are thousands of spots in this game that one wrong move of the wiimote and your stuck in a spot where only restarting the entire level(that's right... no check points) will get back on the right track. the enemies are weak enough to almost always die from a 1 hitter. there are 3 forms that dewey can become. water ice and mist. water is the default in which all you can do is jump and ground pound. ice is more of an offensive mode but you can't jump worth $% . and mist is electric but you cant move, jump, slide, or do anything for that matter but shoot lightning, and all that does is paralyze.
so i guess what I'm saying is i wasted a week of game time waiting for this in the mail over gamefly and i kinda want it back. i'm encouraging everyone to never lay eyes on this game. and if you already got a hold of it, i absolutely feel sorry for you poor poor sap.
I've found with Wii games that the controls can make or break a game and they broke this game. I may have gotten into this if the tilt controls weren't so hit or miss. There were times I tilted and Dewey should have gone straight and went left, should have gone backwards and he spun around in circles and then went forward. There just seemed to be no rhyme or reason to them. The button controls worked perfectly fine though.
