Chicken Little 2: Ace in Action - hands-on

Look at thelaunch lineupfor the Nintendo Wii and you'll notice that the games tend to separate themselves into a couple of categories. There are the marquee titles that will eventually convince you to pick up the system- Zelda, Tony Hawk, Super Monkey Ball- and then there are the bait titles that will convince little kids to convince you to plunk down $250... preferably before the holidays. Stuff like Cars, Barnyard, SpongeBob and Ice Age are all hoping to cash in on the much touted "family" console - which typically means that they're too basic and low-budget for serious gamers.

While the tragically named Chicken Little 2: Ace in Action has no chance of belonging to the first group, it definitely has a shot at escaping the stigma of thesecond. We had a fair amount of fun in ourearlier hands-on timewith the PS2 version, and adding the innovative Wii controls can transform even the most generic game into a good time.
