Heatseeker locked onto Wii

Heatseeker locked onto Wii

Codemasters are teaming up with Aussie developers IR Gurus on a new flight combat game called Heatseeker.

With an emphasis on dogfighting, Heatseeker puts you in the cockpit of a number of real life planes such as the F-22 Raptor, F35 Lightning II, F-15 Eagle and Russian SU-47 Berkut.

It's due for release in early 2007. The game is said to be based on a more advanced version of the engine used for Heroes of the Pacific, which was a popular WWII title from last year. There's no word yet of how the Wii's controller will be put to use.

At last no more on-rails flying. Wiimote can revolutionize flying in games, true 3d flight stick and point and shoot aiming. That pilot wing feeling all over again.

Cool, a flying fighter game. Maybe this will fill the void left by Star Fox 64.

I'm from New Zealand. A lot of people here don't like Austrailians. Personally I like most things from them. Cool. Sounds good.
