View Full Version : Wii - where is help? Wii walkthroughs missing

There doesn't seem to be much help from Ubisoft for Wii users for this game. The Wii platform isn't even listed in the walkthrough.

The game manual in the case doesn't even list all the on-screen Wii functions. For example, I'm completely stuck "4. On the Dark Path" when the Banshee lands on top of the "helicopter". The picture on-screen just shows a Wiimote horizontally - but no info on what to do. Suddenly I get a red X on the Wiimote picture and the Banshe crashes and I have to start over.

Where can I get more instructions on how the Wiimote is supposed to be used at this point in the game.

Also - the walkthroughs listed here don't seem to follow anything on the Wii game. All I've been able to do is run through the jungle shooting at enemies, picking up Eywa. There isn't any other story line like ones listed here.

Ubisoft should post something about Wii game play being different instead of just leaving us dazed and confused. It's very frustrating and time wasting and not part of an enjoyable game experience. I'll think twice before I buy another Wii platform game froam Ubisoft.

Hum, are you reffering to the first hit you must do on the Helicopter? The first is a right or left swing.

The Wiimote that appears is horizontal AND has an arrow showing what you must do.
There's a video on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiMsScZp264) showing what actions must be done, too.

Hope this helped*.

I had the same problem it is obviously a glitch with the Wii version. The youtube video shows the correct Wii action. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiMsScZp264

Thank you for confirming that others see a Wiimote sitting horizontally and not moving.

Since my first posting ... I spent hours of my own personal time figuring out that the Wii version is completely different than the Xbox, etc. versions.

I'm really disappointed in Ubisoft - as it would have been fair to put this ON THE CD/DVD COVER so buyers are aware of the difference.

I had seen trailers for the other platforms and thought I'd be able to play as humans etc.

Since the Wi verson cannot be returned - I've lost the over $40 I paid at Target, wasted hours of my time trying to figure out what's going on.

At least - put a "notice" on the forum where the video walkthroughs are posted for the other platforms that Wii users "will not find help" there.

Of course, frankly Ubisoft would rather trick us into buying the Wii version - but as the saying goes - fool me once, etc.

Too bad. Ubisoft loses a customer for lifetime - and I buy a lot of video games - at least one a month. And being in marketing - I know what it costs to gain brand loyalty. It will cost Ubisoft more than $50 to get a customer to replace me.

Watched the vid, still lost, can see your suposed to press z and move remote down but what next? as clear as mud as my old mum you to say. Also this has the worst game contols ever, get about the same response as my dead hamster when flying the banshee using the nanchuck, and moving as the navi you're having me on.
Got this game as a present but sad to say they wasted their money, may take it in and trade it for something else.
