Wicked Monster Blast Review (Wii)
First of all this review is made by my six year old son nicked-named Dr. Yokky. He obviously didn’t type it, but the comments are his.
The game “Wicked monsters BLAST!” is nice. I really like it, but I can’t understand everything. Some of the games are interesting for younger than me kids, but some are for much older.
I like the pictures in the games and I like the music.
There are some fun stories for the characters in the game. There are four characters to choose from. Their names are Parda, Bully, Ticky and Lizzy.
The games are easy. For most of the games everything you have to do is “point and shoot” at everything that moves with remote’s button “B”. And you have magic which you do with remote’s button “A”. On family mode you can choose whichever games you want to play and you choose from easy, normal and hard. There is a game that you have to do math which I don’t know well.

I found this game a bit confusing.
The game is good, but suitable only for younger kids. In conflict with this, there is a lot of text that need to be read, so it’s not really suitable for young kids, although some of the games can be played without reading the text. The drawings and visuals in the game are good, but all the text is very blurred. There is a cute cat on the menu, but the music is a bit of a let-down. It is very old fashioned, arcade style game and gets very annoying very quickly for adults. There’s little guidance displayed about the games, the rules, the controls and everything.
There’s a lack of proper instructions. Most of the time you have to guess what is the aim of the current game. No information is given about victory or failure conditions, and no information is provided about how to unlock the additional modes. There is also some very annoying music and after a few minutes of the repetitive Japanese tunes the parent is happy to turn the game off (or at least to mute the sound).
Despite these problems the game has nice, simple controls. Once you guess what the aim of the current game is, you normally just “point and shoot” as fast as possible. Its good fun for kids and has only low levels of cartoon violence. There’s not too much need for parental involvement. Once the kids have a go at all games the parent may not be involved at all once they know how to play.
