Elebits Thoughts



One of the wii's launch titles, Elebits. I've played up to level 23 BUT, quit before finishing it. Why? I'll tell you in a minute

This game has cute graphics which fits kids. It was good for the beginning of the Wii's debut. Not many lunch titles were that good, but Elebits, they were pretty good. The story, eh, it made sense. A kid named Kai wants to get rid of elebits though his parents love them and spend time studying them more than with him. Kid, admit defeat. Your parents don't love you anymore. The story made sense, so, its okay. The gameplay is decent. You go around in different areas to capture a certain amount of electricity to complete the level. The only way to get electricity is to collect elebits. Each elebit gives you a different amount of electricity. However, after a few levels, you face a boss.Some bosses are difficult since this game gets REALLY HARD later on and I'm not kidding you. One boss and I believe this is the first boss, divided into little forms and you must get them all before they reform back. One more thing to name is, there were power ups to the game. My favorite being the vacuum since its easy to gather elebits up. Maybe the best one for certain stages is the sound one. The sound one basically makes the elebits deaf for a small period of time so you can catch them easier. Not only that, but there are elebits with spikes on their backs who will attack you if you try to capture them. If you get hit with them too many times, you gun will stop working and game over. These elebits can be summoned by making a huge mess in a stage or they are put there automatically. Before I forget this, there are also different mdoes and the coolest one if the extras. In there you can look at all the elebits you've captured including the bosses, it gives you bios on them and a close-up, TOO CUTE!





The people who voiced acted this, is just bad. Watch this video and you'll get an example of what I mean.

Yeah, its not the best out there. Plus, Kai sounds like the voice actor who voice acts Tails. Basically, Kai sounds like a damn girl! Anyways, another bad thing is the difficulty. This game gets difficult quick and that's what made me quit this game. Plus, the controls wouldn't work with me at some points. When you have to turn the door knob you had to turn the wii remote, but, that made me lose grip on the knob sometimes. Sometimes, you have to get a item out of room to another room to activate a object, only for the door to close in your face. Not only that, I had troubles keeping the door open while doing so, the game even has a time limit for the levels! So, if you have to keep opening the door to get a item out of the room, it might take up a lot of the time you have!



After all of that, Elebits is a decent game. It could have been tweaked up for sure. However, I did find this game for a cheap price due to its age. Its enjoyable for the price you pay and the time you play it. Don't play it for over an hour or 30 minutes or you'll get bored pretty fast like I did. Maybe for 15 minutes or less is a good session of gameplay for this. I can't give a review for this game since I didn't

6.5/10
