Well this game is probably the hardest game to review that I have played yet.
The Wii disappointed what are described as "hard core" gamers since it's release. Red steel was dire, Call of Duty virtually uncontrollable and Far Cry bin worthy.
Graphically Heroes score and fails.
1. It has the best graphics I has seen yet on the Wii with the only exception being Resi 4 (a game cube game????)
2. The Wii has out dated graphics capability, so the designers have done well.
Well, it's your standard Medal of Honour or COD game. It won't win any awards. However, it is certainly playable. Weapons are a touch week though, especially the shot gun, you shoot and shoot and they still come at you.
At last, a game that uses the Wii mote to it's potential. You can run and gun just as you expect to. Point and shoot with Wii mote, move and side step with Nunchuck. Simple and working.
Grenades are a touch dodgy, maybe that you need to practice. The Bazooka works by you holding the Wii mote over you shoulder, odd but it seems to work. And shot guns, you operate the pump action with the Nunchuck by shacking it. Doesn't work to well and the fact that shot guns are quite ineffective just add to your frustration.
Sniping isn't bad though, again once you get used to it. Your raise the scope with the "A" button then you adjust the depth of zoom by twisted you Wii mote hand from side to side. And you can lock to amount of zoom with the "C" button. And the rifle appear to hit quite hard. So not bad.
As mentioned is you standard FPS Medal or COD game. Nothing new, but playable and of interest to Wii owners. If you had this game on the 360 or PS3 you wouldn't bother. But on the Wii, it's OK.
This works and works well. Which I have to say surprised me. You do tend to see players running around in a big circle attempting to shoot each other, sometime 3 or four players in one circle. Again I think the ineffective weapons account for this, and shot guns again demonstrate this point. I was in one such circle with 3 others all blasting away, and we went on and on until we ran out of ammo and had to melee each other or run for it. Odd....
All in all, if you want a serious FPS and not some cobbled sports game or family crap that tends to come out on the Wii , then this is probably the game to get along with Resident Evil 4 (however Resi 4 is the one to get).
But if like me you own PC, 360 or PS3 then save your money.
