Was really looking forward to a beat em up from my past and Rampage failed to deliver a fun game. Trying to move is downright frustrating and after 30 mins of going in the wrong direction, punching up in the air instead of to the side, and after reading 3 different articles on how pick people up from the ground and still unable to accomplish that basic task, I packed it up and sent it back. The graphics look great, the idea sounds fun, but with the horrible controls, I couldn't play any longer. You move by tilting the Wiimote in the direction you want to move. That is all well and good, but when one of the special attacks is to shake the remote back and forth, half the time you just do a little shuffle on the screen and look kind of foolish. Meanwhile, those darn police are still popping off at you and you just kind of stand there, doing a little dance, or running off in the wrong direction. Don't waste your time with this one unless you are a Wiimote GRAND MASTER as this one is tough to control!!!
I was a huge fan of the original video game. I am not happy with the wii version. It has the potential to be really fun, but am having an impossible time controlling it. To go away from camera, move controller toward you???

The game Rampage is the title exactly. It is meant for destroying and total destruction across the u.s.. I was not able to beat the game but from my view this game is going to make you pick up the controllar and will not let you put it down. I talked to my friend and he has beat the game. He loved it and unlocked every single character and all the cities. I had to say "will how did you do it ?" And really to destroy Jolly Rodger's and The Oasis you have to have Eyegore on a 5 star mega power to take those two places down within 3:00 ( three miniutes ) . The only reason I would stop is because some times my ( nunchuck on the Wii copyright and trade mark ) woud die and I got to earatating to me so I would quit but my point is to the people who also like or dislike Rampage total destruction my opinon is I think this game is terrific !
