    Definitely a 10/10 The "official" reviews for this game were pathetic, i want whoever said an epic story based around terrorist attacks and natural disasters was hilarious to be ditched in the middle of a hurricane for him to see just how funny it is. The variation in gameplay is no way confusing, unless you have severe brain problems, as it is clear as day on how you do everything, Definitely a 10/10 The "official" reviews for this game were pathetic, i want whoever said an epic story based around terrorist attacks and natural disasters was hilarious to be ditched in the middle of a hurricane for him to see just how funny it is. The variation in gameplay is no way confusing, unless you have severe brain problems, as it is clear as day on how you do everything, driving, shooting, platforming, CPR, this game has the lot, but it all happens so naturally with clear instructions on how to do everything, it's just brilliant. Along with a pretty cool shooting gallery to unlock new weapons. Graphics? I have no idea how they are "lackluster" in some scenes I thought some characters were rel people, my friend got killed because he stopped to watch some of this game's beautiful graphics in action as a building collapsed, this game is just simply beautiful graphics-wise. I have no idea why the reviewers are giving this masterpiece a low score, they're probably nintendo haters or something, which I kinda think is pathetic, just buy this game, fi ish it, and see just how right these reviewers are. It's a shame that we cannot trust the majority of gaming critics on what game is good and what games are bad. Such as the "epic" 2 hour session of jumping through holes in portal. Expand

    Don't bother with the low scoring reviews! a great game and you can pick it up for £20 in the UK --> a STEAL! the storys really good, cheesy but is still good, especially if you like American TV shows such as 24 *Warning uses the word Dammit a lot* lol the actions great, the stupid AI never once became apparent to me, an average gamer, maybe if yuo are a review company and Don't bother with the low scoring reviews! a great game and you can pick it up for £20 in the UK --> a STEAL! the storys really good, cheesy but is still good, especially if you like American TV shows such as 24 *Warning uses the word Dammit a lot* lol the actions great, the stupid AI never once became apparent to me, an average gamer, maybe if yuo are a review company and spent a lot of time looking really close but really, just playing you dont notice!!! the graphics are really good, especially for wii ---> the weather effects are fantastic!!

    Disaster: Day of Crisis sets a new precedent for 3rd party action titles on the Nintendo Wii. Overall, the game is a joy to play, and it proved to be a real time eater especially when you try and achieve S class scores for each level and unlock all the bonus content. It is arcadey and a bit silly at times, but there

  1. An interesting story, an outstanding cinematographic style and a good variety of genres like exploration, shooting or driving. These are the key ingredients of Disaster: Day of Crisis, a very enjoyable videogame very suitable for gamers looking for one of the best action games in Wii.
  2. The woeful AI and a few clumsy sections detract from what's otherwise a really enjoyable arcade-style experience. But it looks and sounds great and there are enough unlockables to warrant a second and third playthrough.
  3. A distinctly underwhelming game. There's some fun to be had with this Wii action game, but it's far from good and certainly not what you should be expecting from Nintendo.
