  1. Players with only a passing interest in tough puzzles with a mild adventure flavor should steer clear. Otherwise, it's a good title that fits a very specific niche.
  2. There is no reason to purchase Safecracker for the Wii. The puzzles are exactly the same in both versions, as are the graphics. There’s no noticeable loading screen lag in the PC version, and it’s much easier to play with a good old mouse.
  3. Safecracker offers plenty of puzzle-solving fun on the Wii. While the game itself isn’t any different from any other puzzle game on the PC, it is different from most offerings on the Wii, which are mainly platform, action or shooter games.
  4. Horribly dated and lazy, this mind-numbing puzzler only exists on Wii because of motion controls. [Apr 2009, p.70]
  5. The game's sound is also underwhelming.
  6. I'm a sucker for a good puzzle, and this game offers up plenty of them, but once you figure them out, there's nothing left.
  7. If you can get past the nonexistent story, lengthy load times and aggravating audio, there's some good point-and-click puzzle adventuring to be had here.

    It's true that the load times are a bit long, but it's a great game for relaxed evenings trying to unlock all the safes in the game. My girlfriend & I really enjoyed the game! Full Review »
