  • Summary: Originally an arcade game created by legendary designer Eugene Jarvis (Defender, Robotron: 2084, and Cruis’n series), Target: Terror puts you in the place of an elite anti-terrorist agent who is charged with protecting the U.S. from all terrorist activities. With a full scale assault spanning the entire U.S., this is your chance to show terrorists who is in charge. Eliminate the seemingly endless waves of enemies with an assortment of high-tech weapons you have in your arsenal. Utilizing the motion sensing controls of the Wii Remote, there is a seamless transition of the arcade’s light gun to the Wii. The arcade experience is enhanced when used with the Wii Zapper peripheral to provide total immersion in the game by replicating both the arcade light-gun as well as the elite, tactical weapons used by that anti-terrorist agent.

  1. Target: Terror is an awful game, a title reminiscent of the old-school "shoot-at-bad-actor" gun games.
  2. With only ten levels and no multiple pathways, the game is fairly short on content. You will most likely only play this game for three to five hours, making the forty-dollar price tag seem way too steep to consider it for a purchase. Still, the game can be a lot of fun.
  3. And while the FMV movies are definitely worth checking out – if only to laugh at their ridiculousness – it is not worth plunking down $40 for.

    Yes it’s one of the worst games on Wii as far as tech goes, and yeah, there are countless other light gun experiences out there that’ll destroy this one in terms of pure gameplay, but damn if this isn’t fun in its own, seriously crippled way.
  5. You'll have more fun laughing at this light-gun shooter than playing it.
  6. 20
    Only pick this up if you're the sort of person who buys supermarket own-brand bog roll and enjoys the rough sawdust texture.
  7. But with boring gameplay and dated graphics, nothing's worth fighting for in this budget-like game at a non-budget $40 price. It’s not even worth the quarter it costs in arcades.

    C'mmon guys this game is awsome, look at the graphics, hear the reallistic sound effects and most of all the gameplay is innovative, more than games like Call of Duty or Battle**** Field or Super Mario Strikers, and i'ts pretty difficult not for of the new generation of gamers. This piece of art is a tribute for all that arcade games of our childhood. 33?, really? Maybe i'ts not commercial but is devoloped by KONAMI the dick of the videogames industry. Expand

    A bad game, no doubt about it. However, if you know that going in and have a buddy equally as clued-in, you'll laugh at the crappy graphics, repetitive enemies, lame power-ups (I got "The Shocker!"), etc. -- to the point where you actually have a fun little time. Not quite awesomely bad, but worth a rental to scoff at. Amazing that this supposedly hit arcades in 2004; it looks almost 10 years older than that. Expand
