Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure Review

 

For a control scheme that seems to mimic the PC so much, the Wii has not had many games of the point and click variety. Fortunately, Capcom is willing to ...

In the end if you like point and click adventures, you’re probably just the right person for Zack & Wiki. Don’t get thrown off by the cartoon-like graphics, this is classic puzzle solving at its finest. The steep difficulty will surely throw some...

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure

 

When experienced gamers see anime-style characters and a title that clearly denotes a main character and a sidekick, their brains usually leap to the conclusion of "cartoony mascot platformer" and then they frequently move on to the next box on the...

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure

 

Once in a while a game comes along that receives little coverage in the mainstream press, even though the game is more than deserving of a mention. Beyond Good & Evil is one such game and close on its tail as an underappreciated title come Zack & Wiki:...

I can’t stress enough the great uses of the Wii’s motion controls in this game. Whether it’s something as simple as shaking the controller in time to a song to using the controller to simulate turning a lock, this game gets all the movements right. I...

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure

 

While I have no intention of undermining the overall difficulty of Zack & Wiki – as I have been stumped by it a number of times, fair and square – there are some puzzles that seem harder than they really are because the game is suddenly asking you to...

Absolutely brilliant puzzles, often with multiple solutions ; Straightforward, pick-up and play controls ; Masterful design and cel-shaded visuals

Crippled by useless hints and the occasional illogical step ; With some curl-up and die motion sensing ; Which will likely turn some people off

While it’s true, the graphics in Zack & Wiki can be simpler than most games, the controls still have a few kinks to work out and the logic of this fantasy world can trip you up at times, it isn’t enough to tarnish what the game does right. The...

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure review for the WII

 

Fifteen Tools for a Dead Man's Chest.

Great puzzles; Massive Wii functionality; Replay value; Fun for the whole crew

Deceptively 'kiddie-looking

When showing this game to other people, the closest thing I've heard to a universal 'complaint' usually falls into the "Hey, this isn't a kiddie game at all!" category… and if that's the dullest, most nicked-up coin you can find in the chest, I reckon...

Zack & Wiki Quest for Barbaros' Treasure

 

It looks cute, cartoony and kid-friendly -- because it is -- but Zack & Wiki Quest for Barbaros' Treasure is also an inventive and entertaining adventure of Ye Olde Schoole.

As pirates go, one needs to take Zack with a few grains of Pixie Stix dust: His hat is nigh-on half as big as he himself, his palette could be fairly be called "New Toy," and his trusty companion Wiki is, uh, a golden flying-monkey-thing... who can...

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure

 

What might look like a game fit only for little kiddies is actually a tightly crafted adventure in creative puzzle-solving that lucky players won't soon forget.

Excellent puzzles; seamless control; bubbly cel-shaded style

Moving quickly is difficult; lacking in story; irritating voices

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure Review

 

The boundaries of development for the Wii are still a ways off. Metroid Prime has definitely shown us how the FPS genre should work on the system, while Super Mario Galaxy has fused traditional platform controls with a mouse-like interface and usage...

Great use of the Wii Remote's functionality; Interesting and challenging puzzles; HirameQ points system is actually pretty rewarding

Very off-the-wall and cutesy; Controlling Zack can sometimes be a real pain; No online play and a level editor would have been nice

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure (Wii) review

 

I'm sure most could be easily put off getting Zack & Wiki simply because they think there are better games out there, and it has to be said there are other games that offer a better first impression. It's not your fault though, as Capcom don't make...

Arguably, Zack & Wiki could very well end up being the equivalent of Plok from the SNES era, the Go-Go Trouble Makers of the N64 era, and could easily go down as being just like the highly praised but little played Beyond Good & Evil of last-gen. All...
