Product Description

Product Description

In this unique predator-themed action-thriller, it’s hunt and be hunted as you become two of the desert’s creepiest predators: the Desert Tarantula and the Giant Desert Scorpion. Travel across a vast, detailed world, where every area swarms with enemies and natural hazards. Ambush and feed on your prey. Use the Wii controls to unleash a variety of fierce attacks against vicious enemies: rival spiders, lightning-quick lizards, divebombing wasps and hungry rats. Stalk, battle and explore from a unique and constantly shifting perspective as you crawl along vertical walls, through twisty underground tunnels and even upside-down! And if you survive the dangers up the food chain, you’ll face larger predators, including the most dangerous creature of all: man. Combining the ferocious, fascinating behaviors of real-world creatures with the epic landscapes and cinematic excitement of fantasy/action movies, this is a game experience unlike anything you have ever encountered.

Amazon.com

Featuring a wide array of cinematic effects, action packed life-or-death battles, and graphics that will make your skin crawl, Deadly Creatures for Wii exposes you to the brutal realities of life in the desert. And you better be ready to defend yourself because you're about to take on this vast, dangerous world from the perspective of two deadly critters with a history of giving even the most stalwart people the creeps: the scorpion and the tarantula.

Deadly, Motion-Controlled Combat with Wii Technology
Your Wii controller gives you the ability to move stealthily and attack quickly, just like the real creatures these characters are based on. Each animal has a unique mode of operating, which means that the two interconnected narratives behind this game each offer their own distinctive challenges to conquer.

As the armored, action-oriented scorpion, you'll string together stinging blows into deadly combo moves that culminate in cinematic finishes and decimate your opponents. Playing as the sneaky tarantula requires a little more finesse--you'll find yourself leaping from above onto your nemesis, throw out neatly aimed shots of webbing to paralyze your prey, and finishing creatures off with your devastating fangs.

Wild Enemies and a Sinister Back Story
It takes skill and composure to master the moves the scorpion and tarantula have at their disposal. And, even after you think you've got every move down, you'll find you need to learn methods, since these life-and-death struggles take place between you and a huge array of vicious, hazardous creatures, including wolf spiders, rattlesnakes, Gila Monsters, Tarantula Wasps, black widows, mantises, enemies of your own species, rats, and even humans.

Beyond the immediacy of fighting for survival, this game features a story of greed and betrayal in the human world. Slowly unveiled from the disparate perspectives of the two headline creatures, this evolving storyline helps keep even advanced players engaged and guessing at the implications of their own actions.

Explore Brutal, Unforgiving Environments
Whichever creature you're playing as, you'll have 360-degree access to a wide range of 3D environments based in the harsh Sonoran Desert. You'll explore a gloomy maze of thorny brambles, forgotten underground tunnels filled with rusting pipes, an above ground wasteland packed with people's garbage, and even a desolate gas station. Each arena promises to challenge your skills as a hunter and a survivor in its own way, while unique angles and a sense of scale that turns small, familiar objects into major obstacles help make these environs especially prickly.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is unlike anything I have ever played. I have been following this title since I first heard about it early this year, and am glad to report that I was not disappointed! This game is an interesting take on gaming, since I really can't compare it to anything else on the market. There really isn't any other game to compare it to. I only hope that it will catch the attention of Wii owners, since this kind of creativity is all too often overlooked by consumers. Here `s what I liked:

CREEPY gameplay and sound effects: 10/10 I do not like bugs (in person)...but I am fascinated by them. The protagonists of this game are a Tarantula and a Scorpion, and as such, the game is played from their perspective. From the very opening scenes of the game, your senses are assaulted with creepy and foreign sounds that I really can't explain... but they work: you will be completely immersed in the world as these insects see it. It is a really interesting feeling: The cutscenes and sound track are very well done, and manage to create a really creepy and immersive atmosphere... almost like a survival-horror game. And I can't say enough about the sound effects... all these little random bug noises (and also some not-so-little bug noises!), and the sound of the creepy-crawlies walking around is especially interesting (considering that, like I said, I am not a big fan of bugs!). Also, take note of your surroundings while you walk around. There is a storyline to follow involving humans, and you have a front row seat from a bug's perspective... and as such, you will encounter all sorts of interesting things buried and hidden in the desert.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Wii Game February 9, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Just came out today. Really a great game that puts the player in the roles of a scorpion and tarantula out in the desert. You can walk up walls and even on the ceiling!!! Many enemies to fight like a Rattlesnake, lizards, wasps and more...

The game is really fun. It uses the Wii motions very well and does not overdo it. Watch a story unfold from a Fly on the Wall perspective. The Human Characters are voiced by Billy Bob Thorton and Dennis Hopper.

Overall - Really unique sense of scale. It is amazing to view the world from a bug's perspective. The game's controls and combat are very fun and satisfying. I highly recommend this title to anyone that owns a Wii.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing level designs mar an otherwise good game. February 11, 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The premise of the Deadly Creatures is promising. The player takes the role of either a tarantula or a scorpion in the desert and must battle for survival. The storyline surrounding the game is honestly quite cool and has some of the nicest voice acting I've heard in a long time. Deadly Creatures tries to be fresh and innovative, and it succeeds in many ways, but ultimately I found the game to be lacking.

GRAPHICS: Solid. The game looks good, better than a lot of Wii games. It is clean and crisp looking, but isn't without issues. Many of the environments feel very similar because everything is drawn in the same drab desert palette. I would have liked to see some brighter colors with more contrast, especially on the insects, lizards, and other critters. The desert itself isn't typically that beautiful in most people's opinions, but many of its denizens have beautiful and bright markings. The game fails to capitalize on that, which is a shame.

STORY: Very Good, but odd. The player has very little to do with story until a little more than half-way through the game. Until then, you basically observe snippets of the story about two humans searching for treasure and stuff. Ultimately it is a story of betrayal and drama, and very well written. Strangely, storyline is one of the best aspects of the game.

CHARACTER DESIGN: Very Good. The two characters, tarantula and scorpion, function very differently. The spider can walk on walls and ceilings, jump, use webbing to temporarily trap opponents, use webbing to jump from one web to another, and do stealth pounces from a great distance.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Please note, when I say "mature" I don't mean its rated "M for mature audiences" (this is rated "T for teens", by the way), I mean that the game's protagonists, a scorpion and a tarantula, aren't exactly as cuddly as, say, Crash Bandicoot or Mario, or as stylishly violent and over-the-top as Kratos from God of War or Dante from Devil May Cry.

The goal of the game is pretty plain and simple, survive. As you take turns between playing the tarantula and the scorpion, you will find yourself devouring a number of small insects and attacking fellow predators like other spiders and scorpions, various lizards, rats, and even in a couple of pretty epic battles, a rattlesnake, among other enemies. Also, in a pretty clever move on behalf of the game's creators, it features a compelling subplot between two treasure hunters (with voices provided by Billy Bob Thornton and Dennis Hopper) that the two arachnids will run into throughout certain areas of the game.

The controls work pretty good. The lighter and faster attacks are triggered by the large "A" button, and heavier attacks are triggered with the wave of the Wii-mote or Nunchuk, and as you go through the game, you learn new fighting moves and abilities. And there are some parts of the game which features mini-games to progress through the level, much like Resident Evil 4 or God of War. The gameplay does feature a nice bit of variety when it comes to combat controls. The tarantula's fighting moves are based on speed and it's ability to jump, and offers a nice bit of platforming thanks to it's web jumping. The scorpion, however, is built more on power, and has some satisfying finishing moves. It also has a nice bit of exploration, thanks to it's ability to dig and cut down grass.

The graphics are pretty good.
