What Gamespot Users have to say about Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure

  • User Rating 7

    Starts out strong, but once the wow-factor wears off Zack and Wiki becomes just a good game, but nothing too great.

    There's a lot working in Zack and Wiki's favor. It uses the Wii Remote terrifically, is part of a dying genre and has undeniable charm. It gives a phenomenal first impression, and stays welcome a for ...

    A great refinement of point and click adventure conventions, this game is suited perfectly for the Wii.

    Rated on August 18, 2009 by bacchus2

    Point and click adventure games have lost their prominence over the last decade or longer, and their prescence on consoles has been minimal at best. Zack & Wiki manages to take the core concepts and f...

    A Virtual Red Herring. This game WILL make you think at least once. I must have for any puzzle lover.

    Zack & Wiki is an odd game at a glance, it appears childish and easy. Comparable to games like Jumpstart, or so it appears. Upon entering the game you are immediately challenged with escaping a fallin...

    One of the most underappriciated games ever! A great game like this in my opinion should be up in the charts

    This game is so great but also so underappriciated, this is smart, funny, challenging and difficult. The puzzles will really have you thinking about your next course of action and the characters and g...

    EEEEEEEEEEEYAAA! This rare gem of a game may be overlooked, but it is worth its weight in gold.

    At first, one may look at Z&W and think it childish or easy. This is not so. The game has its hard parts as well as many easy puzzles, but it is a delightful game to pick up and play. Zack and Wiki ha...

    One of the only Wii games to use the hardware to its fullest, a masterpiece.

    Rated on June 16, 2008 by Platinum_Pikmin

    Zack and Wiki was a sleeper hit of 2007, although it was praised critically to be the savior of the now-extinct point and click adventure genre, the game didn't sell many copies thanks to the kiddy gr...
