  1. 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.

    Deadly Creature is based on an unique idea, play a "real" spider or scorpion, first things first the graphics are pretty good for a Wii gameDeadly Creature is based on an unique idea, play a "real" spider or scorpion, first things first the graphics are pretty good for a Wii game specially all the creatures that move in a realistic way but the game is also too dark, even with the light set at its maximum on the screen there was still corners I couldn't see a thing.

    The story is surprisingly well told and provide some continuity to the levels with a very good ending, but don't expect something that will shake you up either, you don't want to buy this game for the story. Especially because the game is very short, approximately 7 hours to finish it and even there you'll revisit some locations.

    Now concerning the gameplay, the two creatures have different style with the scorpion that is more like a tank while the spider would be a rogue if we described them as in a RPG, the controls are responsive and the combos are easy to do. Unfortunately the camera is a little flawed, especially when climbing on walls and can be annoying during combat.

    In conclusion the game is an interesting but very short and repetitive experience that doesn't shine neither from its story or gameplay and therefore I would not advice it for everybody, but if the concept appeals to you then you should have a try as it is in no way broken and will provide some fun.

    Deadly Creatures, is certainly trying to be different, making youm play as a spider and a scorpion is a novel enough twist, and the world isDeadly Creatures, is certainly trying to be different, making youm play as a spider and a scorpion is a novel enough twist, and the world is well realised. 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. Full Review »
