    They slipped this one out quietly, I knew it was being made but didn't know it would be out so soon. Low hopes for this game especially seeing that it looks worse than the PS2/GC game.

    Cover looks like crap, can't beat the original cover.

    Wow, good job at Activision making an original IP looking like an average shovelware game

    It actually is shovelware!

    According to GoNintendo its a straight port of The Lost Expedition, only with wiimote controls. That is the only change! I know that we're use to ports of old game but at least those publishers don't say its an all new game like Activision did with this.

    A quick cheap dirty port, something that Data Design Interactive would do.

    OMG!!! Don't tell me. I hate those bastards [​IMG] I thought this was a completely different game than the PS2 version. I totally fell in love with Pitfall: The Lost Expedition (PS2) but seeing that it's the SAME DAMN GAME, I am really beginning to hate Activision for this [​IMG]

    Used to love this game for megadrive (played it on PC tho). The cover does indeed make it look like shovelware. But, you know, being shovelware that's all it deserves!

    I actually played thru and enjoyed this on the PS2. I don´t even mind that they ported this to the Wii, but I think the name and cover art changes are deceiving. If I had forked out money for this, I´d be totally P.O.ed!

    Hopefully they try and mend their ways, and give us a truly new Pitfall game.
