GI.net: "Wild Earth: African Safari for the Wii casts you as a wildlife photographer. You're working for a magazine and are sent into the wild to get pictures for various articles. Yes, there are minigames you can unlock as you finish each assignment, and there's a cooperative play mode, but the real meat of the game is in the photography assignments.
You begin the game in game. There's a nice tutorial to help you learn how to move around, look around and, most importantly, take great pictures of what's around you. This is all handled with the combination of the Wii nunchuk and Wii-mote. It's quick and easy to look around you and equally easy to zoom in and zoom out for your shots.
Each assignment has a specific overall theme - which makes sense because you're taking picture to accompany an article, but you'll be taking more pictures than just that. In the upper left corner of the screen, you'll see a list of pictures for you to try and get. Some are mission critical and will stay there longer, while others are bonus shots for flavor (and additional points) and will only be options for a short period of time. Flavor shots might be "three frogs" or "termite mound."
