The game seemed fun for the first 5 min. Then the 6th min began and I was spent. I dont see how it got good reviews really. All you do is point and click.

Excellent

Best Use Of Wii Controller Thus Far

On first glance, this game looked like it was going to be appealing only to those that are too young to receive a driver's license. Based on other reviews, however, I decided to give it a chance.

First - a little about me. I am 27 years old and I have been playing games of all sorts all my life. I bought the Nintendo Wii because I was tired of having to learn complex button combinations for every game that I played on other systems. I just simply don't have the time that I used to have to invest in playing games.

That brings us to Elebits. Within 3 minutes of playing this title, I had the controls down. Sure, I got better over time, but the ease and simplicity of walking and shooting Elebits with your gravity gun is very easy to learn. It's completely addictive as well!

All in all there are 29 levels to the story mode. You play as Kai, a young boy who is upset because his parents are constantly working and he is unable to watch his favorite TV show because the electricity has gone out. Every electric (or gas) appliance is powered by Elebits. As Kai captures the elebits he is able to turn on lamps, TV's, and eventually cars and amusement parks!

The difficulty of this game is not in beating the levels - but in beating each level thoroughly. It took me no more than two attempts to beat each level. Younger children may have more difficulty with some of the latter levels as they require some "thinking outside of the box" to solve some of the puzzles. However, they will still thoroughly enjoy the game.

The game has definite lasting appeal through it's edit mode and multiplayer modes. Additionally, you can always go back and play previously completed levels and try to acheive a higher score than the one you got the first time through.

If you are looking for the best adaptation yet of the Wii Remote then look no further. Elebits will give all young and old a pleasurable experience. My rating: 9 out of 10.

This game is awesome!
It is so fun!
You can open doorknobs by turning the wii-mote, there stuff to throw, pick up and get those tiny elebits.

So much fun in one little game.
I recommend you rent/buy it!
