Horrible

Horrendous controls.

It's nice they tried to get a legitimate FPS onto the Wii, but this game is just absurd. It's more difficult to aim the gun in the game than it is to aim the little hand on the Wii main menu, and it just gets worse from there. With a two-stick controller like any other console, this would have been decent, but trying to play this with remote-and-nunchaku felt like trying to juggle with one hand and give a cat a bath with the other.

My Wii tells me I spent 51 minutes on this game (which includes messing with the options menu and watching cutscenes), and it nearly gave me a headache. Unless you are a masochist or you have no other console or computer on which to play a real FPS, avoid this game so you don't waste your time.

Okay I'm 30 years old and have been playing video games since I was five. So let me tell you that I have certain expectations when it comes to games. First off, I'd like to be able to do stuff like pick up a weapon on the first try. The controls in this game are probably the worst I have ever seen. (Not that most Wii games have good controls). The cut scenes are extremely annoying (why do their voices echo). Five minutes, that's how long it took. This coming from a guy who has beaten almost every Zelda game there is, so I've experienced tough game play. Give me Lethal Enforcers any day. or even duck hunt (which let's face it wasn't that great). I do miss the old days when shooters where actually fun.
