I NEVER played an on rails game before, but since the Wii is somewhat limited for awesome games, I decided to give this a try. Am I glad I did!! I really, really enjoyed this game!!! Being "on rails" means that you have no control over moving your character as the game moves you through automatically. But you do have control over everything else. Shooting, grabbing objects, opening doors and lockers, moving objects, and throwing objects. I got used to it pretty quick and now I am interested in other on rail games. The graphics are incredible for the Wii and the story is as well. I thought the game play was great too. Plenty of weapons to use, and you play with 4 different weapons at a time. You have to "snag" your ammo and other objects using kinesis, and I found this to be the most challenging part of the game since the camera doesn't stay still for long. If you see ammo or something else, you better grab it quick because the camera will move very soon - which is challenging when there are multiple objects to grab. You never get an over abundance of ammo, but you always have just enough. Plus one of the weapons (rivet gun) has unlimited ammo and you always have this to use. I was kind of surprised that there weren't more variety of enemies, but there were still 6-7 different ones, and you get to know what weapons work best on each. You also play as the other characters depending on what chapter you are on. There are no checkpoints so you have to play each chapter to save, which I guess makes it kind of challenging as opposed to say Call Of Duty where there is a checkpoint like every 5 minutes. This game is CREEEEPY so beware!!! I was always so nervous to play to play this but excited too because it is a great game. I would guess that the length is about 7 hours, so not too long. There are 4 different hardness levels to choose from which is great for just about everyone. I bought this used from GameStop for $20 and I think it is absolutely worth it if you like shooters. This is a first person shooter. I'm really bummed out that Dead Space 2 is not on the Wii platform, but I would still recommend this game. You cannot pass this up if you like shooters, on rail games, great stories, cheap price, or great graphics. You will not be disappointed!!
yes: I recommend this product
