Elebits

Mysterious and tiny creatures, the titular Elebits have been the source of the world's power for the past 10,000 years. In the game world, there are no such things as gas, coal, or nuclear power. Instead, there are many different breeds of Elebits, each with their own unique look and personality. While humans and Elebits have always lived in harmony, these friendly beings love to cause trouble, and it's up to players to track them down and put an end to their mischief.

Taking advantage of the unique functionality of the Wii controller, Elebits allows players to interact with their environment in all-new ways as they search for the power-generating creatures. Using a futuristic device, players can push, pull, lift and throw anything they come across to discover secret hiding places and obstruct escape paths for the Elebits. Players can also devise their own strategy to round up the stray Elebits, using stealth to sneak up on them or creating noise to scare them out of concealed areas. As players capture Elebits and harness their power-generating abilities, numerous options and additional opportunities unfold to find even more Elebits in the ever-changing environment.

"The Wii's innovative controller allows us to explore new game concepts that were not previously possible, and Elebits reflects this new freedom of design with gameplay that is easy for gamers of all ages to enjoy," explained Hans-Joachim Amann, Head of European Product Management for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. "Introducing original gameplay elements, Elebits provides players with unprecedented control over the environment and a new level of freedom in choosing how to best accomplish their goals."

Good

I picked up Elebits as a bit of a gamble. Worried that I was rushing through Zelda too quickly and would inevitably finish it, and somewhat bored and sore from Wii Sports, I was unable to get hold of many other games, particularly as I'm trying to import US games into the...read full review

This looks very unique. I have to really play this game to give an opinion. All I can say is this looks like a Pikmin-style game, graphically that is.

Lots of crazy interaction with the wiimote, physics will only get better. KONAMI let it slip Wii has hardware physics, sweet.

Is this gonna be a rip off of Pikmin? And I don't even like Pikimin.

Surprise, surprise! NoNB dosn't even like one of the best Gamecube games. And it looks more like a Chibi-Roboesque kind of game.

This doesn't look too great. I don't even get the point of it yet, but I agree Monk, even though Pikmin will be awesome ANYWHERE!

I want to pick up the white house.

I think it looks pretty cool. Like Luke, I researched it on Gamestop and it looks cool. And the trailer for it was pretty funny. Those dancing furry creatures captured my heart.

If I wanted to learn physics I'd ask my teacher to teach me it again. And if I wanted to be a telekinetic I would go and find someone to somehow teach me or do the damn stuff for me. If I wanted to be an alien I'd go to a novelty or a party store and buy a suit that looks like an alien. I'm sorry to say but this game doesn't really attract me to it.

Can't wait to play this very unique looking game.

Pikmin ripoff.

This game is very unique and has a great story. I'll probably rent it.

Cool. Little white energy blobs slamming into and tipping over cars. I'll have to get this one.

DarkVic said:

This is a game I need to play to judge. It looks like a futuristic form of Pikmin.

Must..have..wii said:

Looks like it could get repetitive. But that's what I thought about katamari dimachi and look how amazing that game turned out. I dunno, this game reminds me of it.

You know what Noah, I'd like you to come up with something as origanal as Pikmin.

DarkVic said:

I hope they make a Pikmin 3.

WIIPING FOR WII said:

It's not anything like Pikmin guys. It's where you have to get those animals to create electricity and you have the whole house to look around for them in a certain amount of time.

Wii Monster said:

I'll have to play this to see what it's like. Looks a lot like Pikmin. But it isn't. Saddening.

This game looks so good I definitely am going to buy it. I wonder if you can throw eggs around.

So they're evil Pikmin? Awesome!

I heard this game is kind of like hide and seek.

Hmm looks interesting. I wonder if you can crush them with stuff, then it will be a game worth my money.

If Nintendo does make Pikmin 3, it'll be for the Wii!

This game is NOTHING like Pikmin, the game is just looking for little creatures that look like Tingle and harvest them for energy.

Pikmin rules.

Yea I thought at first it was going to be like a pikmin game, but it's not really like it. If it was I would probably get it.

Are you trying to kill the creatures or help the creatures?

Looks like something to rent from Blockbuster; it looks like a fun, addicting game without much replay value.

Did I just that see the house and that car being levitated?

This game looks awesome, it is a one of a kind game. And I love Pikmin!

Ditch this game and develop Pikmin 3!

Avatar

Owlboy said:

But Konami didn't develop Pikmin. Why would they ditch this and do that? I'd rather Konami ditch this and make a Castlevania for Wii. Whip cracking, the sound would sound so sweet coming out of my wiimote. SCREAM DRACULA SCREAM!

Pikmin was an awesome game! Long hours of finding ship parts and then more long hours of collecting junk. No I am not being sarcastic! Pikmin 3 would be great! Not these stupid cross breeds of Elephants and Rabbits with psychic powers.

It's not even close to a rip off of pikmin.

This really looks like one of those Pikmin games.

Europe, for some odd reason renamed the game Eledees. The name sucks but in the end does it really matter?

I think a Pikmin game would be great.

I've seen mixed reviews on this game and I'm a bit stuck on whether to get it or not, because it looks pretty fun.

I have played this and it doesn't really make any sense. In the main levels you have a time limit to find and capture as many elebits as you can. As you collect watts you can turn on electrical appliances and stuff and it will give you more elebits to capture. They give you a lot of stuff to destroy but if you want to win you have to keep your mind on capturing the elebits and not messing around.

Pikmin for the Wii would be really cool, you could use the Wii remote to pick and throw them.
