    I'm here to announce I've lost all hope for HVS and this game. At first I was like "cool, a L4D clone for the Wii". Satisfied. Then it went multiplatform and I was like "Okay, this is getting stupid." Then it was slated for release LATE NEXT YEAR and I was like "Okay, this is stupid". Then there's this, and now I'm like "Alright, HVS is a shit dev". Well, the Wii version may still be a FPS, but I'm not gonna wait for a game that's coming out late next year when it should've come out this year. Well, it may be a decent Smash TV type game, who knows...

    I hope the Wii version will remain an FPS. It looked much cooler that way. I have to agree with Guild, why do they screw up this bad? Just announce an Wii exclusive FPS, release it in 2010 and everyone's happy!

    Thing is they also have shitloads of these sort of shooter games too on PSN/Live too so their reason is stupid.

    I can't see those versions getting a retail release.

    Also the reason for the 2011 release is that they've reverted back to making shit licensed games rather than "ok at best" original titles.

    I'm quite disappointed :/. I agree with some of their statements - yeah, FPS is pretty much a default on the PS3 and the 360, but definitely not on the Wii. I really hope the Wii version of the game remains a FPS. If not, I definitely can not see this game being more than a 15 USD arcade release - like FPS, this genre (on the 360 and PS3) has been "done to death."

    That being said, the actual game doesn't look too impressive, either. There are FAR too many colors for this type of setting - especially when compared to the original trailers we saw for the (once) exclusive Wii version.

    The last good game developed by HVS was Lego Racers.
    For the N64.

    ...
    OH WELL. I can't say I was expecting much from this anyway.

    Well, I don't mind overhead shooters if they're done well, but this just isn't promising.

    Anyway, what happened to that last overhead shooter they were developing, Animales de la Muerte? It's probably vaporware by now. It was moved from a WiiWare release to a commercial release, which odds are they couldn't do and we haven't had any updates on it.

    $10 says this eventually becomes vaporware. They keep putting way too many changes in it and already moved it to a ridiculously late release date.

    Well looks like I'm not getting it on the PS3 any time soon. But the Wii still has hope!

    fps games better work on the wii than any other games
    this category isnt tht bad either but as u can see, fps would have been better
    maybe they didnt have too much to put in the game or what they wanted to put was not possible for the wii
