Something completely different
The motion comtrols are used extensively, and if I had one complaint, the number of moves between both animals gets hard to remember so I found that I was relying on a few key ones. Fortunately, the game gives you prompts at points when you need specific moves. While the animations get a little boring after a bit, there is something really fun about watching your tail go through a rat's skull.
One of the things that has to be mentioned about Deadly Creatures is the scale. You really feel like your traversing this huge landscape littered with fun objects that are a joy to figure out.
