Criticised for the fact that the adventure mode is all the game has, aside from the bug collecting that unlocks some concept art, Deadly Creatures was also attacked for its plodding play, graphical glitches, lack of variety and bosses that overstay their welcome.
Deadly Creatures tells a great story, with Dennis Hopper and Billy Bob Thornton providing the voices for two human characters that the scorpion and tarantula protagonists sometimes encounter. The creepy atmosphere, fantastic traversal play where you go underneath, around and inside 3D objects, and combat that was really satisfying, all helped to make this short-but great adventure one of the most memorable I played on the Wii. There are plenty of great moments, and brilliantly designed levels, and although most of the gaming world has forgotten it, Deadly Creatures is still well worth a play through if you can hunt it down. I remember when Eurogamer gave this a 4, proving why scoring reviews is such a terrible idea.
