  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

    Lots of fun! Takes advantage of the extra features of the Wii, and is a must own for your system. Makes good use of the controllers, and has very cute characters. Voice acting not so good; seems targeted at 4 year olds... maybe that's good if you have REEALLY young children. Expand

    My only complaints is the horrible voice acting, and a lack of intuitive multiplayer options, but that does not deter from the countless hours of gameplay in single player mode. of course Elebits is not a perfect game, but its original, cute, and somewhat challenging. Expand

    Solid, innovative gameplay mixed with gorgeous settings makes this a fun, addictive game. My wife and I are completely hooked. The level editting and sharing feature guarantees huge replay factor directly parallel online play in most FPS games. Expand

    Very fun and original game, but it might not appeal to everyone. If you liked Katamari or Pikmin, you will probably like this game. I would rent it first to see if you would want to buy it though. The only bad thing I can say about this game is the voice acting. Expand

    I was kind of shocked by this game, because I usually wouldn't even bother with a game like this, but surprisingly it was kind of cool, and kind of addictive. Expand
