Rented this one to evaluate game for possible gift for my nephew. Horrible game. Too difficult for the younger gamer and too stupid for the older one. Nothing in this game is original or any good. Camera is awful, control with the nunchuk or wii wand is so bad I don't even want to talk about it. Why would such a good license want to make this game?

Stay away, stay FAR away from this game.

Bad

Doesn't live up to it's potential

My son (age 7) and I were looking forward to this game because we both love the characters, and the concept of the game was very promising. Unfortunately, we only played through the first two levels of the game before giving up.

We loved the characters (primarily Bugs and Marvin) and the comments they made while playing, plus the occasional taunts by the villain. We also liked fighting the robots.

However, the Controls were the reasons we ended up sending back early. The nunchuck has to be twisted along it's axis in order to make the characters do a spinning attack, and several of the enemies are only vulnerable to that attack. Also, the only way to jump across several key gaps. The castle level has several of these longer jumps, and falling will take you back to the beginning of the series of four to five gaps.

Also, we were playing on a 36" standard TV. We tried splitting the screen both horizontally and vertically (horizontal ended up working best for us), but the Castle section was too dark and the characters too small to keep track of where we were. Several times, we were separated and had a LOT of difficulty finding one another. It was also easy to lose track of each other during the fights.

Honestly, I hope it does well enough to get a sequel, because it is a great idea for a game. However, this one just doesn't do it for us.

...because the Looney Tunes characters are all awesome. I got to play with Marvin the Martian and my girl was Bugs bunny, and we had fun for about 2 minutes. Then frustration set in. The control is horrid, all the enemies look exactly the same, the enviornments are uninspired and bland, the combat is basically just approach and enemy and wave your wii from side to side, for hours and hours, ad nauseum. I'm not going to beat a dead horse. If you're thinking about renting this atrocity, do yourself a favor and skip it.
