I felt this way as soon as i saw the case cover art for a game on the Wii called "The Monkey King: The Legend Begins". I thought I was going to end up with a game similar to God of War, kind of like a hack and slash type of deal, oh boy was I wrong. This is an old school 2D side scrolling shooting game, but it is mediocre at best. Anyways, let us get right to the review, shall Wii."
