i rented this for xbox a while ago . on that i liked it alot but i didn't really like it enough to make me buy it i say.but then the wii version comes out and hear about the controls and stuff , read some other reviews and so then i went out to gamestop and bought the wii version. and it is alot better than the other versions for one reason and one reason only (well mainly):the motion controls. it's awesome to punch you sorta actually punch with remote/nunchuk and to slam people against walls you push the controllers forward and etc. which is fun. if yyou've at least played another version of the game and liked it then you WILL love this version if you have a wii. if you haven't played any version of this game before then you'll love this
I don't have any systems other than the Wii. I am typically a Nintendo Fan-boy, but I enjoy playing games on other consoles... I just can't afford to own more than one.
What you need to know about the game:
The game play: is fantastic. Controls with the Wii-mote / nun chuck combination are precise and tight. I've got 10+ hours in the game, and never once did I curse because I felt that the game "cheated me" as some other Wii games have done.
The graphics: are very good for the Wii. They add to the enjoyment of the game, rather than taking something away or doing nothing for a game. I have seen very few places where I could "see through walls" or where I could appear to be partially "inside" objects or backgrounds. Customizing your gangster adds to the enjoyment for the game.
The story: While the story is pretty good, I find that I take a lot of time in between advancing the story line. Being that the game is very open in most respects, this can be a good or bad thing. A friend of mine has watched me play every hour of the game thus far, and they are enjoying it as much as I.
Bottom Line: There is a lot of variety in the types of missions you do, and how you can execute the missions. Each time I start to feel that I've experienced all the facets of the game, something new is made available... like hiring help, or hunting a person as a specific hit, or buying a safe house, etc.
