  • Zack & Wiki - amazing game for Wii

    I only just got my wii and have only been able to start playing various games (Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Galaxy) but I had heard so many good things about Zack and Wiki: Quest for Barbaros Treasure that I had to get it as well.

    It's about a boy pirate named Zack and his flying golden monkey Wiki. It's much better than it sounds trust me. You go off on various quests to get to the treasure. Each little quest though is a different puzzle.

    It is a great game for the Wii, you may be misled by the artwork on the box that it's a game for kids, but it's a great puzzle game. I highly recommend this game, it's only $40 and if you're looking for a good game on the Wii this is a great pick up.

    Yeah, it's awesome. Reminds me of the old games like Monkey Island and Sam and Max

      Ohhh, that sounds awesome. I was just going to say ... reminds me of Monkey Island type of a game. Which I LOVE.

      Not sure if we will be getting it for Xmas as we have 10 or 12 games sitting under the tree right now, but it's on the radar.

        I've been hearing great things about this game too. FYI, Sam and Max have new adventures on GameTap (they do them in 6 episode "seasons").

          I REALLY wish we could actually get a new Monkey Island ... it's been WAY too long.

            Man, this game was GREAT. I rented it, but now I want to BUY IT. Is it as short as everyone says?

            But yeah, it looks great.

              I gotz this game too and it is pretty fun

              IGN really pushed this game alot with their buy Zack and Wiki campaign but it looks like it's having minimal impact

              but it's cool to see there are people who are giving it a shot and interesting to see that more then just critics enjoy this game


              anywho not sure if it's short or not I've heard it all depends on how good you are at solving puzzles since you can beat most levels in five min once you know the trick to beating em so it's mostly just trial and error in figuring these things out

                The puzzles are fairly difficult after the first few levels, I don't see anyone figuring them out in five minutes. The whole trial and error thing also stops being useful as the error part will end in poor Zack's demise much more frequently as you go on.

                  The more I hear about this game, the more I want to make sure it's under the tree on Tuesday.

                        well you have to use some logic to what you try of course can't poke at anything but it's still a part of the gameplay as sometimes you might not see a pitfall until you trigger it

                        I think failing can be fun though it's been a while since a game challenges like that, I remember my childhood of platformers that did that and now most games make it so you never die

                        and from what I've seen I don't think anyone would solve the puzzles in five min either but what I mean by that is if you already knew the solution by reading spoilers or a game guide then it might only take you five min but then your not really playing the game since the whole point is to solve the puzzles yourself

                          Picked it up last night.

                          Only a few more days until we get to play LOTS of new games.

                            verily, i must admit nay.

                            Games of a puzzling nature do not hold my interest beyond the first few games.

                              I played some more last night, I'm really liking this game. I think I'm on the 5th or 6th level. Definately fun, not too challenging, but challenging enough.
