  • Summary: (Also known as "Eledees") A revolutionary game of hide and seek. Search high and low for mischievous little Elebits using the features of the Nintendo Wii controller to push, pull, lift, throw and interact with anything and everything in the environment. Full interactivity with any object in the environment. Hundreds of Elebits to search for and find. Gain additional abilities as you capture more Elebits. [Konami] Expand

  1. While "Twilight Princess" has been collectively anointed the Wii's top killer-app by virtually the entire gaming community, I would wholeheartedly disagree and offer up Elebits as my choice for the best overall Wii game to date.
  2. Elebits makes wonderful use of Wiiconnect24 and the Wii remote, something all third party companies (heck, even Nintendo) should keep in mind in the coming months.
  3. If you own a Wii and want something that not only uses the controller to its fullest and provides a unique since of humor and game play, then Elebits should be in your Wii library. A great first wave title indeed.
  4. Elebits takes full advantage of the Wii control scheme and runs with it, distancing itself from the collection of rushed ports available at launch. It's not a particularly long game, but it is addictive and fun.
  5. If you were a fan of the Katamari or Pikmin titles, then you will enjoy the innovative gameplay that is offered with Elebits.
  6. Repetition and control issues aside, Elebits still manages to entertain in a very primal way. There's something so visceral about completely demolishing an entire house and then not having to clean it up.
  7. 50
    During my time with Elebits, I couldn’t help but think in the back of my mind that this game is just a long tech demo and nothing more. And paying full price for what a tech demo is just insane.

    Elebits is the game where everything is done right the gameplay, storyline, characters (the voice acting isn't that good for Kai), and boss battles are all done incredibly well and I don't know any other FPS which doesn't involve any killing. Expand
