Capcom's treasure-finding 2.5D point-and-click puzzler ticks all the right boxes, perfectly fits the Wii's fun and easy-to-play philosophy and makes stupendous use of the Wii Remote. And yet, following terrible sales in the US and Japan, Zack & Wiki looks set to flop in the UK as well.
Why? Its quirky Japanese nature? Its unconventional game play? Its unwieldy name? Its perception as a childs cartoon game? Its slightly harden thatn your average Wii game difficulty level? No. The answer is much simpler, and even more disturbing."
