  1. It’s an accessible and easy-to-master Wii game, providing simplistic gameplay and a neat art style. It’s certainly not "Call of Duty," but on the Wii that may be a good thing.
  2. Hint: There are many good flash-based games out there that you can play for free; just go to their website through the Wii's Internet browser!
  3. The problem is that Chicken Shoot isn’t $5.
  4. As a Virtual Console release or a tech demo for a bigger project, Chicken Shoot might’ve been iffy – possibly Ok, if it were a buck or two. But as a full title on a Wii disc, it can barely compete with games released 10 years ago, let alone what we have today.
  5. Chicken Shoot is like Duck Hunt for idiots.
  6. Chicken Shoot doesn’t have anything going for it that would make it remotely recommendable to anyone. Avoid it like you would a chicken carrying SARS.
  7. 20
    It's got less meat than any McNugget and it doesn't even taste good – plus, it'll cost you about $30, which equates to about a dollar for every minute you'll spend with it.
  8. Wii owners should avoid this game like chickens avoid Col. Sanders.
  9. The target game in Wii Play is miles better and more challenging. [Oct 2007, p.69]

    A game with a title as hilarious as Chicken Shoot would be expected to be a bit like the classic NES game Duck Hunt. Well, It's a lot like that. The arcade mode has a few levels to complete. All of them are in different parts of the world, but the objective is the same each time: shoot respawning chickens in a small area until the chicken count in the corner of the screen runs out. This sounds and is simple, but many times I found the chicken count running out without taking me to the next level, instead letting me shoot a few more chickens before the results screen came up. This mode is fun if you're bored, but at other times the game can get quite boring, probably due to the constantly replaying music and simple objectives. I completed the arcade mode in just over an hour, but Chicken Shoot comes with a 2 player mode, as well as Classic Mode, based on previous versions of the game, such as the PC version. Overall, Chicken Shoot is a basic game that you can enjoy if you're in the mood, but one that can be quite boring if you're not in to these type of games. £30/$60 is absolutely not worth it at all, but its current price of £5/$10 is not too much for this Duck Hunt-style game.

    Art is ok, but gameplay is too simplistic. There are a variety of modes of difficulty, but you do the same thing over and over again. And the controls can be troublesome too. Just simply not a game worth holding onto. Full Review »

    A terrible game by all accounts. I can simply not understand the positive user reviews. Utter garbage it is. Sure, it may provide some guilty pleasure, But sucks so, yeah. Full Review »
