  • Summary: [WiiWare] In Lead the Meerkats, you are a young meerkat with a lot to accomplish. You've been separated from your pack, and the time has come for you to form your own meerkat pack. Are you ready for the challenge? Name your pack and its meerkats. Dig burrow networks and enlarge your territory. Forage for food and grow your pack size. Stay on guard and be ready to make quick decisions. Run to the safety of the burrows or fight your enemies. Go head-to-head with a rival meerkat pack. Lead your pack to victory and rule the savanna. Lead the Meerkats is the first game to simulate the exciting life of meerkats, offering fun game play for animal lovers of all ages. Expand

    But even with a few rough edges on its presentation, Lead the Meerkats is still a nice design and a worthwhile option for fans of the action/sim/strategy hybrid genre that Nintendo helped to pioneer.
  2. We found it to be a fun experience, despite some slightly annoying controls and obtuse instructions. If you like sim games or meerkats and want to try your hand at building a pack of your own, it's certainly worth a look.
  3. If you're patient this might impress, otherwise you'll be asleep in an hour. [Aug 2010, p.99]
  4. Compare The Pikmins.com will be overloaded once people tire of this well-meaning but dull wildlife sim.
  5. What looked like a peaceful riff on one of Miyamoto's finest ideas winds up a far duller prospect than it ought to have been. Shame.
