Color me puzzled. Why would anyone, and I mean anyone, want to port a horrid, mostly unseen coin-op rail shooter from 2004 to the Wii?
Maybe Konami thinks the kitsch factor will outweigh what will soon officially be the worst graphics on the Wii console. That’s right this makes Cruisi’n look like a Playstation 2 game. I’d blame the horrid graphics on the Wii, but I’ve seen the arcade game and they were just as bad on the 2004 coin-op, maybe worse.
A take-off of the original, digitised-photo meets sub-par graphics rail shooter Area 51, Target: Terror will be compatible with the Wii Zapper and has players take on the role of an elite counter-terrorist agent taking down a wave of terrorists, all of whom happen to wear sunglasses or bandannas. The original game actually featured a level at the Denver Airport, but it was so horribly generic I couldn’t convince my editors at the Rocky to do a story about it.
Target: Terror will also include mini-games and is due out in the first quarter of 08. Two more screens after the jump.
And just for comparison sake… the dreaded Car Vault.
