Honest Gamers writes: "It's easy to see why Tecmo took the risk in spite of that fact. Imagine for a second how cool it could have been if swinging the Wii Remote around in your living room determined what vicious combos Rygar performed. I bet someone at Tecmo was excited about a re-imagining of the original epic adventure with Wii Remote gestures lending the whole affair a sense of flair, only that didn't quite happen. Instead, standard controls have just been re-mapped to Wii's setup. Certainly that works, but it robs the new game of one of its potential hooks".
