    Awesome Grindhouse, b-movie style Trailer:

    I do actually enjoy the HotD2&3 Return but only when playing with someone, though it was a cheap port it did play well. I'm so pleased that SEGA are giving Wii owners some respect now and giving us an all new lightgun style game.

    Now announce that it comes with two proper guns.

    I'm never happy am I? [​IMG]

    The trailer was awesome in a "Oh God this is going to be so bad" sort of way.

    I love this trailer. It is as absurd as the Sonic trailer, in which they used these real life locations.

    And lightgun-shooter on wii... the past showed, that it works [​IMG]

    "Overkill" seems a fitting title for this game, because man, the Wii already has enough light-gun games (and SEGA is really doing their part to help with all that). The trailer is mildly clever, if not an uber-played approach to satire, but it doesn't change the fact that this will be just another arcade game of the ultra-repetitive kind.

    Between this drek and the Sonic games, SEGA sure is placing a lot of poop in the Wii library. Thank goodness there will be MadWorld.

    LMAO! The trailer is brilliant! Nice game, but I was expecting something else.. a new Jet Grind Radio or Space Channel.

    Seems like the Wii is reviving the on-rails shooter genre.. hope it does the same to the point-n-click adventure genre..

    Hope that they'll do ps3/360 version with better graphics and light gun, but probably not. the house of the dead 2 was awesome on dreamast with light gun. And that trailer is pretty cool.

    I can't wait to get a Wii partially because of the lightgun games, lightgun games never get boring (maybe an individual game does, but the genre doesn't).

    Does playing with a wiimote on it's own feel any less good than with the plastic gun shell?
