My review of the Wii’s Deadly Creatures is up at PopMatters today. There’s a new multimedia editor at PopMatters now and he thoroughly butchered my review, making run-on sentences out of previously separated sentences and patently changing facts. I’m to have a discussion with his later tonight about these things. E-mails will be sent. They won’t be pleasant. Money quote:
As you can likely imagine, though, the real joy of this game is traversing the finely detailed Honey I Shrunk the Kids world around you. Be it crawling past a cell phone that towers over your tiny moniker or patrolling the unsightly and improper grave of an unfortunate soul, everything about the world you’re thrown into seems intricately placed and realistic. Throw in a dark albeit humanizing storyline, and you almost feel like you have objectives and a purpose. So despite the game’s inherent creepy-crawliness and the too-common administrative issues in the game, Deadly Creatures is something of a graphical wonder that, though at times can be infuriating, has memorable moments and enjoyable playability to boot.
