Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of the Secret Saturdays: Beasts of the 5th Sun from High Voltage Software and D3 Publisher for the Nintendo Wii. Beasts of the 5th Sun is basically a 2.5D platformer, but it also has a lot of elements characteristic of 3D beat 'em ups. The levels give you a series of platforming sections only to break them up with small 3D arenas, where you engage in the same beat 'em up action that defines so many of these licensed games. The platforming is actually enjoyable, however relative that may be, but the fighting is just terrible. Mash buttons, generally the same button over and over, until that handful of enemies goes away. To the game's credit, at least they finally go away. This video review features video gameplay footage of the Secret Saturdays: Beasts of the 5th Sun for the Nintendo Wii and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
