WiiWare: Onslaught – Gameplay

by Bradley DeLorenzoFebruary 18, 2009

Onslaught: The first First Person Shooter ever for the WiiWare™ platform. With tight controls, a horde of enemies to blast away, and some of the most intense action you’ll ever find, Onslaught sets a new standard for FPS on Wii™.

In the distant future, contact with a distant research colony is lost and your team is sent in to find out what happened. Upon arrival, you’re attacked by overwhelming numbers of mysterious creatures. It’s up to you and your squad to eliminate the threat and discover the truth that lies deep inside the colony.

Being the first FPS on WiiWare, Onslaught gives shooter fans the action you’ve been waiting for. Taking advantage of the precise motion controls of the Wii Remote™, you’ll be in full command of your soldier as you tread through treacherous terrain.  The action stays tight by aiming with the Wii Remote. You’ll need steady hands if you’re going to survive the horrors that await. When running low on ammo, give the Wii Remote a shake to get back in the game. When the odds get overwhelming, a supply of grenades will keep enemies at bay by throwing them using the Nunchuk™.

The enemies of Onslaught are no pushovers, which is why you may need to team up with a friend, or two, maybe even three! Get online and play in 4-person co-op to increase your chances of survival.

    I already bought this game last Friday (because it’s already out in Europe). And i really like it, it’s a fast action game. It by no means perfect but it’s addicting as a 2d shooter. The computer controlled players act like pods in a 2d shooter. You can control em around (shoot whit you from the sides of behind) but the real deal is the online co-op mode. If they only imported a WiiSpeak function then it would be perfect. But now you need a laptop whit a voicecom program to go whit that. I give this game a 8 from 10, but only because it’s 1000 points it’s not worth more than that…
