  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]

    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 »
