I played this game on multiplayer and it was terrible. I assume the single player is much better. I haven't tried single player and since the multiplayer scarred me, it will take a lot of boredom for me to ever insert this disc into my Wii again.

So, the sequel is going multi-platform...

Oh, and these sales are quite good considering the extremely slow start.

to fully complete the level you pretty much need to paint everything. if you dont, you cant get the medals.

@Bubbles, sticking to walls is annoying but level length is entirely up to you. Ive burnt through one main level in less than 15 minutes (the dam one,lv4). Waggle is a little frustrating but i really think your involvement in the game world is amplified by it.
Message | Report
MrBubbles posted 15/08/2009, 05:56
levels are too long, camera is poor, clinging to walls is awful, and all the waggling is a serious detriment.
gets repetitive very quickly.

conceptually, artistically, and grapically it is very nice. too bad about all the problems.

On another note, just beat this game! Camera angle is the best it can get for a 3D 3rd person game. Coloring everything is so fun, especially the blimp!

One thing i hated though was the jumping. Jumping with motion controls is just not responsive enough. Why couldn't they just give u the option to either jump w motion controls or the A button :(

Well once again guys remember NPD is not the final say on all this. They've been wrong before. Very wrong I might add haha.

Now that doesn't mean we are right. Usually what I notice its mostly a median between the two. So we got it at 500k in the Americas and NPD would probably be at about 300k. So 400k seems legit.

Still great sales not matter what.
