Arctic Tale 

 

Arctic Tale has the right recipe for being a great family friendly video game. What appears on paper, and what is actual application are sometimes icebergs apart. The WMG knew this game would be hit or miss, an was hoping for a real hit. Sadly Arctic Tale misses on too many marks. Players walk around (editor: the animals have limited run capabilities) in the arctic. Collect certain icons, and go play a few mini games. Even the most patient child will wonder if there is more to do in polar bear survival. To be honest this reviewer did not feel like much of a polar bear education was received from this Wii game.

Arctic Tale is graphically bland. The whiteness of this game is contrasted by mainly the sky, and water. The bears themselves are also mainly white. The lack of diversity in the colors can be forgiven, but the camera glitches can not. The WMG, and others watching got headaches while playing Arctic Tale for the Wii. Bump into a rock, or wall, and the camera jerks (repeatedly). In other spots the camera is very slow in keeping up.

The music in Arctic Tale is okay. The WMG did not get annoyed by it, but also was not that into it either. The sounds also fit into the bland category, which is a shame, because some real education into God’s creation could have been taught in this Wii game. There are a few special effect sounds that worked for this reviewer.

Arctic Tale is one of those bargain basement Wii games that does not have a lot going for it. Sometimes the WMG can find gems in those bargain racks, but Arctic Tale is not one of those. There are multiple challenges for each mini game. The problem is the game play section. Two players can play certain aspects of this game at the same time.

Arctic Tale is buggy at best. Getting stuck on walls, or little rocks is common. A real polar bear could walk right over a small rock, so the realism does not fit. The previously mentioned camera issue hits when trying to get unstuck from a rock. Arctic Tale is too sluggish for this reviewer in the control department. The headaches from the visual issues also relate to the control problems. The WMG did not have fun playing this game. Instead frustration was found.

Arctic Tale could have been a really good game. Unfortunately the camera, and control issues ruin it. The WMG did not make it through the entire game due to the painful game play, and camera issues. There parts played did not have a lot of National Geographic education. The WMG is willing to go out on a limb and say intelligent design is not taught. Probably the opposite belief.
