Really Bad

Interesting concept but HORRIBLE execution.

The others are right, the controls on this game are horrid. I tried both with and without WiiMotionPlus and while WMP makes it more realistic, you keep having to turn your "bow" around to keep it pointing where you want. Even sitting completely still, the camera view is constantly moving on the screen. Without WMP it's a very clunky interface using the control stick on the Nunchuk to move the camera while aiming by pointing the Wiimote. In the faster levels where you need to shoot moving animals, it's impossible to aim fast enough like this. After trying a few times to accomplish some of the tasks it becomes apparent the animals are programmed to follow specific paths... leaving the replay value with MUCH to be desired. I wanted to try it hoping the reviewers were being too harsh... but perhaps they weren't harsh enough!
