Wii's World writes: "In this context, bad means exciting action, dark themes and responsive controls. Deadly Creatures, by Rainbow and THQ, places the player into the very real, but no less frightening, world of insects. Its slogan, "Hunt or be Hunted", truly defines the spirit of this title. A fighting game, an adventure game, and an action game all mixed together, DC is in a darker spectrum of gaming. Not often do we see true hardcore games on Wii, and even when we do, it isn't often Wii-exclusive. However, DC is both."
