Did this game originally start out as an Xbox game?

Everything about this game looks as if it were an original xbox game, the menus, the text and HUD in game and the general graphics. It's really weird, I recently played through Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy) and it's incredibly similar. Was this an original xbox game or is it just THAT bad?

Started off as a Wii exclusive, probably.

I think so. The lighting and texturing are particularly flat and the layout of the levels is very spartan. I agree with your point about the oversized text and the HUD layout too. It looks like a mid-to-late generation XBOX title in every way.

They probably made the Wii version and then ported it to the other consoles. Probably cheaper that way and the budget for the game was probably tiny....

It's Wii port, hence the light gun support.

The game should really be illegal.

It's made by Romanians, I'm surprised it even runs. I thought gameloft was the only game development company over here. When I saw the credits with romanian names I was like "IT ALL MAKES SENSE!".

When you go into the shop, they should give you money if you go to buy it.

YOU started out as an Xbox game, sir! *waddles off sobbing*

But yeah, my money's on Wii port.

It was built in time for a third Men in Black movie not even conceived at the time of the original Xbox console, and it seems like it was built within the trappings of a light-gun game... so yeah, Wii game with a change in direction.

It's CHEAP!

Why are you people giving this game so much publicity, anyway? Who the hell wants to play this?

This game was made in a Romanian sweat-shop.

I'm surprised they try to sell this piece of shit for full price. It's not worth it. I wouldn't play this game even if someone payed me to do it.
