Weak

Unpolished and lacking

This game is the only game on the Wii that I have not liked so far. There are so many things that ruin this game.

One of the first things I notice about this game are the camera controls, you can turn the camera by twisting the remote, at first its kind of neat and different but soon after I find the camera moving at bad times just because my hand starts getting tired and not realizing that I have the remote turned a little bit.

Moving on, the game is fun but for a very short time. You have the tutorial type thing and the game teaches how to jump and run on walls and things like that, but again something fun in the game turns into a headache. Eventually you have to jump your way around a room, but if you fall from over 10 feet you die. I cant believe the main character can run on walls and scale to impossible heights but a fall from 10 feet will kill him, that means one small mistake or being off timing by about a second you are dead.

The games combat system is by far its biggest downfall. You pull of combos by swinging either the remote or the nunchuk downward, but its hard to know if the swing was even detected because the combat goes much slower controller swings. I find myself just randomly moving my hands up and down and feeling a little stupid. The exception to this is the "quick kill". If you sneak up on an enemy you can start a quick kill by swinging the nunchuk down, the prince will grab the enemy and the action will slow down at parts of the sequence, at the slow down points you swing the remote. It is pretty fun to do and very satisfying.

One other problem I had with this game is the graphic. Dont get me wrong I did NOT by the wii thinking I would be getting top of the line graphics, but this game is flat out awful looking. In my honest opinion it looks on par with an N64/PS1 game and I know the wii is capable of more.

Bad combat system, jump puzzles, and bad graphic really bring this game down. This game is fun at time but gets old quick.

THIS GAME IS AWESOME. SIMPLY PUT, IT IS A LEGENDARY GAME. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THIS EVEN AFTER YOU HAVE TRIED PLAYING AS THE DARK PRINCE, THEN YOU ARE DELIRIOUS.

This game is awesome! The controls are NOT bad, although everyone says they are. It is SO fun when you are the dark prince, you swing the nunchuk around like a lasso! Please, just give this game a chance, I already was used to tilting th remote to move the camera even when I first started the game!

OVERALL: 10- WILL KEEP YOU BUSY FOR MONTHS,
IF NOT YEARS!!!
