Having a Wii has been a blast, but to this day the most enthralling game for it so far has been, without a doubt, Wii Sports. I do my fitness every day. Seriously. What makes it so great? The simplicity of play wrapped around a great employment of the physics of the genre inspiring controller.
That being said, ever game for the Wii has been scrambling to shove this new controller style into a game they probably already had three quarters of the way done. This just makes for sloppy/frustrating gameplay. Rampage: Total Destruction is no exception.
I love the Rampage series. It was a great arcade game; be a monster, eat stuff, destroy a city. Simple. Fun. Not anymore.
The controls were beyond comprehension. Trying to turn your monster by moving the WiiMote in three dimensions just didn't work. Good luck trying to climb a building, or facing one for that matter. My friends and I were so excited for this game and it just turned out to be a big disappointment. I would have given it a 1, but at least they named it "Rampage".
They should have just released the arcade game, let us flip our WiiMotes sideways, and play until or destructive needs are satiated.
