  1. Smart, unothordox, creepy as hell. I can’t recommend Deadly Creatures enough. One of the rare few third-party Wii games you should be proud to add to your collection.
  2. Deadly Creatures should renew your interest in your Nintendo Wii if you’ve had a falling out recently with the lack of titles to play. It’s fun for all ages and packs a thrilling rollercoaster of a ride till you finally complete the storyline.
  3. Deadly Creatures isn’t quite spectacular, but it is a solid experience that never runs out of ideas and will keep throwing in surprises, satisfying combat, and a decent challenge.
  4. If only Deadly Creatures could've been e little bit lengthier and varied, we would recommend it to every Wii owner eager to try a new experience. The experiment is successful, but it lacks any kind of re-playability, and it won't last long. Still, it's nice to see that new ideas do come up even in this next-gen, and they should be rewarded with a good try.
  5. For gamers looking for something different on the Wii, this might be the ticket – provided that you’re willing to cope with the unpolished mechanics.

    Deadly Creatures is an interesting concept that is commendable from a technical point of view, and is only let down by a few niggles.
  7. Deadly Creatures has an intriguing premise, and makes a strong first impression with its shudder-inducing animation and cute environmental details. That may be enough to curry favour with Wii owners starved of action games, but over the long haul the scariest thing about these critters is how shoddily constructed they are.

    the weird thing is though, i find it quite creepy when spiders climb on me, but i just felt haunted while climbing over that guys leg.

I've been eyeballing this one for a long time and finally picked it up on sale. Who knew that it was good enough to warrant full price. If I had known that the game was this creative and looked this good I would have picked it up back when it first came out. Still, it's good to save a buck and I'm glad it went on sale, otherwise I might not have tried this surprisingly good game. Expand

But, underneath this, DC is just an average beat 'em up with clunky-ish platofrming, just one that does something different, which allows it to stand out against samey movie tie-ins. And, for the lower price since it's fairly old now, it's worth picking up for a game-starved Wii-owner. Expand

I like the concept but it just isn't aesthetically pleasing, fun, or varied enough to warrant anything more than a rental. This is basically God of War for kids except the controls are bad, the levels are ugly, and the gameplay is far too repetitive. Expand
