This is one of the games I recently rented from Tesco DVD Rentals and all I can say is that I am glad I didn't buy it. There is no plot or premise to this game but for whatever reason you have to shoot chickens. Normally I love shooting games on the Wii so I was expecting good things from this game but it was a massive disappointment.
The graphics are simply horrible, they look like they were cheap cartoons from the seventies and the colours are terrible too. It looks beyond cheap and tacky and it's just plain nasty. The sounds are irritating but then that isn't unusual for Wii games but without decent game play to back it up it's even more annoying.
The pace is so slow that I could only complete the first two levels, (which are basically the same), before I had to give it up. It got posted back to Tesco the same day.
I know you can't do much with the simple point and click shooting game but this is just awful and definitely not something that I would ever recommend. I really wish I could find something positive to say about this game but there really isn't anything.
Sorry for the shortness of this review, it's probably my shortest ever review but there really is nothing else to say.
Chicken Shoot does exactly what it says on the cover - you shoot chickens. This game is best played with the gun adapter for the Wii controller.
My four year old has had hours of fun with this game, although for anyone sober and with a higher mental age, the joke will wear thin pretty quickly.
Its easy to get into, you select either classic or arcade version, and you are away. I haven't noticed much difference between the two versions, but I am happy to stand corrected.
I'm pretty sure there is only a one player option too, so it gets a bit anti-social after a while.
You shoot the chickens, who fly in from the left or right, or come towards you, and occasionally fly planes or parachute from the top. More dissident chickens throw eggs at you, which splat on the screen and block your view unless you shoot them down too.
The graphics are cute and cartooney, but quite primitive. The game play is very basic, and you just keep going until all the chickens are gone. Then you move up to a new level with a new background. The backgrounds include Nevada desert, Hickville USA and others.
I like this game, and my four year old loves it. However, it gets very samey very quickly. Buy it if you can get it cheap enough, and borrow the gun adapter. We've lent ours out to save someone buying it. We haven't missed it yet.
It would be great for a drunken night in. Maybe I just don't drink enough.
The furious farmer and the pesky poultry are back for more fun and frolics, this time on the Nintendo Wii and DS. In Chicken Shoot players have to help our friend defend his farm land against an evil bunch of cluckers who are hell bent on making his life totally unbearable.
