Square shafts Nintendo again

Since 1997 when square released Final Fantasy 7 on the Playstation instead of the N64, square has been treating Nintendo as a second rate company. This is by no means a bad game but it doesn't compare to the sweet games they put on the other systems. DQS has great voice acting and a decent plot. Look else where if you would like a good a deep RPG.
The play control is awful. Why would they not use the nun chuck. Instead you have to use the D-Pad on the wii remote. It become uncomfortable to hold it down to long. I didn't find the sensor to read my swings very accurately. I hope that Square will show Nintendo more love in the future.

Well at first the controls were a little strange as far as moving but it only takes a little while to get used to. I dont understand why they didnt use the joystick to move. sum video games company can really be absolutely stupid sumtimes. I think a monkey may be creating games sometimes. Other than that the game is fun. I recommend a rent for whoever is thinking about it.

The only complaints that I have is that you move with the D-pad instead of the nunchuck and that you can't realy tell how far the enemey is (like in Samurai Warriors). The story is basic and the graphics are pleasent. There are quite a bit to do and despite a few downfalls Square Enix did another good job (afterall RPG's is ther specialty). RENT IT!!!
