CONTROL NIGHTMARE!!!Tomb Raider Underworld, is worthy of its name. On the PC, 360, and PS3 this game is awesome. On the Wii this game is a nightmare! The controls are buggy and unpredictable at best. Controlling Laura becomes such a chore that you're no longer interested in playing. Swimming is a nightmare, and controlling the camera angles is horrible. The graphics are okay, and the sound is pretty good. After about an hour and a half of playing, the story line went nowhere, and I just got frustrated. I had really high hopes for this Wii port of the game, hoping that they'd take advantage of the Wiimote features, but instead they butchered the control system. Movement is choppy, and not fluid at all. So bad I question the quality of the disk i purchased. But if you want to play this awesome game, stick to the real next gen consoles or the ever so trusty PC!
