This game reminds me of that classic "Marble in the Labryinth" game where you had to tilt the labryinth around to get the marble through a maze without letting the marble fall into hole traps. This game is that on steroids!
The concept of the Mercury is very cool. Instead of rolling around a solid marble object, the liquid Mercury gives the game a interesting twist. You can run the Mercury into walls or object causing it to split apart into two seperate Mercuries. This also makes parts of the game VERY difficult when goals of the maze require you to split the Mercury apart to do different simultaneous things. For example, splitting the Mercury into 3 different pieces, making each one a different color, and then fusing them back together to form a combined "white" color.
It's a challenging game that makes me curse alot playing because it's take alot of timing, precision, and patience to complete the maze tasks.
The only LARGE disappointment was not having an immediate multiplayer available. I'm tired of running into Wii games that force you to play single player mode to unlock multiplayer games. When I have friends over waiting to play, I hate making them wait while I play to unlock stuff.
So unless the multiplayer if alot of fun, the single player mode gets exhausting quick. I recommend renting this or if "Marble Madness" types games are your favorite then the sale price on this game is very low compared to the average Wii game selling price.
I thought this game would be like an updated Marble Mania... It's not. I enjoyed Marble Mania because it was very touchy and required skill to balance the marble and sometimes turn the board upside down. This game is nothing than problem solving with gadgets.
