"Disaster is right!" headline be gone; Disaster: Day of Crisis shows potential


1:46 PM on 10.11.2007



When the Wii was first announced last year, there were two “mature” looking games on its tentative release slate. The first, Project: H.A.M.M.E.R. sadly looks to now be all but cancelled and the second, Disaster: Day of Crisis, kind of fell off the radar, even though Nintendo and developer Monolith promised it would be coming out … someday.

After a lukewarm reaction to the media released so far for the mysterious Disaster, some new screens quietly snuck out of Nintendo’s recent press conference and, I have to admit, they actually piqued my interest.

And, yes, before anyone states the obvious: of course the graphics don’t look as fancy as the high-def wonders possible on the Xbox 360 or PS3. But just take a look at this early screenshot dropped back in February and tell me if you don’t think things have improved quite dramatically. That’s all I’m saying …

If the final gameplay lives up to its epic, tsunami/earthquake/tornado dodging promise and is even half as fun as the underrated Disaster Report, this is one Wii game that I will most definitely have to check out.

What do you think? Am I crazy, or do you actually see some potential in these screens?

Sick of having to touch your touchscreen? Well, those days are over, son! The folk at Fling have used science to their advantage and released a physical analog stick that attaches to the screen via a suction cup. Yes, that's...more
