3.0 out of 5 stars Must have the taste for this type of genre, May 9, 2010

First, It is much appreciated that XSeed ports (imports) Japanese titles for the United States consumers and I fully support them. I've three other Xseed titles and this review would be true of most of them.

This is an adventure game. I'd not call it an RPG. Exploration is limited as you are generally confined to a portion of the map to achieve a particular goal. Fetch quests, hide-n-seek "battles" and combat predominate the action of the game. The strategy portions of the game are confined to your inventory control, items useage and weapon care.

The story is interesting but compelling only if you are interested in playing a naive 15 year old boy that meets with even stranger characters than himself. "Stranger in a strange land," is a good example of this type of narrative.

The cutscenes are beautiful but the game is played primarily in dark, underground, cement locales. This is postapocalyptic Tokyo after all.

I enjoyed the early events but grew less interested as the game progressed. I did not finish this game because my interest in the story did not survive the tedium of the actions, combat and inventory management.

Ultimately, this game is a niche title and succeeds very well at what it is; however, I can only recommend it to "finiki" game enthusiasts or individuals looking for a unique story experience with less than perfect "game" conventions.

The controls work well but can sometimes be tricky, as are many Wii titles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid Wii 3rd Person Shooter, May 9, 2010
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars

This is a straight port of the PC/PS2 title so if you've played either you will not find anything new.

The Wiimote works fine for this 3rd person shooter. If you play on the Wii-you are already accustom to the Wii controllers and will find they translate perfectly well.

The graphics are better than the PS2 and the sound is almost identical.

This may be the only pure 3rd person shooter available for the Wii with a decent scifi story, cover system and interesting postmortem squadmate tactics.

It is certainly worth adding to one's collection.
