Stomp! Smash! RAMPAGE!
Rampage: Total Destruction is one of the most fun games you will find on the Wii. You know with monkeys, lizards, werewolves and aliens you can't go wrong when it comes to running amok in the city crushing and devouring everything in your path!
The object of Rampage: Total Destruction is simple - totally destroy everything! You play a huge monster and set out to crush everything that gets in your way! Up to four players can use their Wii-motes and Nunchuks to punch holes into buildings, smash cars with your fists, while jumping around grabbing people from open windows and on the ground and eating those who dare to cross your path.
In campaign mode you can unlock 37 different monsters to play as, which increase your chance of finding other rare items and unlocks, along with collecting special power-ups, avoiding hazards, gathering super monster upgrades like multi-spin, roar attack, charge punch, super jump and jump smash that can be used to destroy anything and everything!
The game also includes two previous releases of Rampage, including the very first arcade version from the 80s!
Rampage total destruction is a modern update to the retro game Rampage from the 80s, and is made by video game giants Midway. This title is a budget title but don't let that put you off. It is a lot of fun and a great way to pass time.
ABOUT THE GAME :
Rampage features the usual game modes, Campaign where you can play by yourself to destroy all the cities around the World. Or you can play it with a friend in two player mode which is a blast. As you progress through the levels, you get to unlock new characters and special abilities for these characters.
There are 2 other modes also King of the City and King of the World are competitive modes. The final mode is a time trial mode, this is where you have to destroy all the buildings around the city in a certain time limit.
The graphics in this game are really cute and colorful, a mixture of 2D and 3D and the action is fast and is a joy to play. From destroying the buildings to eating people from them, and knocking down over head helicopters.
All the retro elements are here!
There is no slow down either which surprised me as there is a lot going on at one time. The detail is very clear throughout the levels
The music in the game and sound effects are true arcade style and very enjoyable, really adds to the experience.
nothing annoying to report on this front
There is bonus content which is added to the game, and this is available from the start. These are ports of the original Rampage and Rampage World Tour. This is a great added bonus as both games are fantastic gems, and makes this title even more value for its money.
I really liked this game and still playing it now, it has a lot of fun elements to it and is quite addictive. Great in co op mode also.
If you are a fan of the 80s classic then im sure you will love this updated version.
Also for a budget title there is a lot to get through, esp. with the free bonus games.
You can pick this up very cheap now, I have seen it go for £7 in most retail outlets over the last few months.
The title speaks for itself in a way as you literally go on a rampage and destruct a whole city to complete each level. Its okay very simple idea and works best when played on campaign mode which is when you play with other people as this makes it more enjoyable and makes the game last a bit longer. The games are fast paced, as the whole idea is to destruct a city in a matter of seconds if you can. You can also collect mini monstres on your way round for added prizes. The visual graphics are slightly weak which does let the game down slightly as is no at all realistic. This game is good if you play it every so often as it gets very repetitive and a bit boring if you play it for too long. But overall not a bad game maybe one to rent just for bit of fun or try and find it cheap somewhere I pciked it up for about £16.00 I think.
rampage a cheap game for the wii but is it worth it. rampage came out aroudn the same time the wii was launched but it was by far not the best game. the game is fun but if you are not playing it in a group then it is very boring the controls are not the best because sometimes they do not work because of the sensor bar on the wii and this spoils the game . also the levels are not very imaginative .
a good point is the fact that there are many imaginative characters to play as with al sorts of monsters like you could not imagen and at some point in thegame you can unlock the old rampge games which are very fun to play.
Overall ramge is a good game but i dont really think alot of effort has been put into is as there is not alot to do on it exept destroy the towns. and that is quite fun
Midway have arrived on the Wii at last, and what better way to make an appearance than with a game that offers the best value for money on the console so far, but with Rampage: Total Destruction only costing £16.99, can it really be any good?
Following a similar formula to the original arcade classic, Total Destruction, elaborates on what made the original so popular, with destructible cities, helicopters buzzing around your head and best of all, monsters with an attitude, 37 monsters altogether in fact, To make things even better you can also upgrade your monster, this is done through completing in game challenges and once complete this enables you to use them in Vs. battle or various multiplayer modes, how's that for carnage?
As you have probably guessed, the object of the campaign mode is to destroy the cities, leaving a mass of destruction behind you, each city comprises of about 8-10 blocks, at the end of of city you will encounter Dr Vector who will try to stop you by using one of his anti monster machines, when you have completely destroyed a city you will then move onto the next area.
At the beginning of the level, you will be given an objective, this will help your character level up if you complete these, this will then give you the benefit of special moves for your character, there are also other monsters to be found during the levels, so it is worth searching behind everything you can, for hidden items.
The multiplayer mode offers three different games, the first of these being King of the City, this offers up to four player the chance to compete against each other to see who can cause the most destruction to each city block, once the blocks are destroyed the winner will then be decided by whoever has the highest score, the next mode is really just an extented version of the first, basically you play numerous rounds and when one player has won more than half of them, he is declared King of the World, there is also a timed run mode in which the city must be destroyed before the time runs out, players can also fight against each other in any of these modes, which is always good for a laugh.
On the graphic side, the characters look great, the environments are full of life and when the buildings crumble to the ground in your path, the effects are quite simply stunning, the animations when your monster gets hit or eats poisonous food is also fun to watch. In addition, the design for each city is unique enough to make you feel that you have moved on, the sound is also present and correct, in fact monsters roaring in the middle of a rampage has never sounded so good.
The games main downfall are the controls, this is mainly evident when you try to climb a building by pushing up on your nunchuck only for your character to walk to the back of the building, you will probably find that this sort of thing happens quite a bit when you try to interact with the background, you can if you wish use just the Wii Remote on it's own, however this just complicates things and it is just so much simpler to plug in your Nunchuck.
Overall despite the annoyance of the controls, the sheer fun to be had in the gameplay makes this worth the money alone, climbing up the side of the building and pounding it with your monsters fist has never been so much fun, so at a price of £16.99 you can you really afford to miss this game?
