I really didn't think games got any worse than Dancing With The Stars, I definitely was wrong. This sad excuse for a cash in reminds me of the old school Atari cash ins like "MASH", "Porky's" and "Attack of the Kiler Tomatoes" just to name a few. The game is a bunch of mini games strung together by a storyline. Imagine Meredith and Derek in an elevator, Meredith think to herself "I really want Derek to come over tonight." Then the game throws you into a series of mini games. These include putting together puzzle pieces to determine whether or not you will play hard to get, or flirt. Then, you doubt yourself, and have to "flick away all doubt" by grabbing pictures of Meredith looking doubtful and flicking them off screen. Then capturing some emotion by moving your cursor over these bubbles representing the emotion. Ridiculously bad. Here again 10 minutes and it was back in the mailbox.
I really enjoy the show. This game is not the best but it is not horrible either. The graphics are not very good but if you could careless about the graphics then its fine. The game play is a little wacky but, the characters mimic the characters on the show. The best part of the mini games is by far the surgeries. The rest of the mini games are all basically the same and get very boring after a while. This game is basically pointing at the screen and pressing the "a." The characters are designed to fit their true human form. Some are very close like Bailey or Erica. Some are just poor designing though. The dialogue between the cast of the game shows the personality we see on the show.
I would suggest this game if you just want to have fun, a game you play every once and awhile and not to beat in just one night. Yes the design of the game is not very good but for some that doesn't matter. I would give this game a try.
The "surgery" was a huge let down, but it was better than the rest of the game. The story line has characters that are several seasons old which is like watching old news. There is no new content. You cannot play one character exclusively. The WORST part is you control your character's decisions by playing these horrible mini games like "flick away the doubt" where you grab icons on the screen using the Wiimote and then in a flicking motion move them off the screen. What in the world does that have to do with Grey's? Do not rent, do not buy, do not give as gift to your worst enemy.
