IGN: Zak and Wiki a ‘must buy’

Zak & Wiki, CapcomIGN, as told to us by 4cr, is falling head over heels in love with Capcom’s adventure title, Zak & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure:

In their latest podcast, the IGN Nintendo crew does some extreme pimping of Capcom’s upcoming Zak & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure for Wii. While they don’t (can’t is probably more like it, though it’s obvious they possess an in-progress copy) divulge any new details about the game, they say that it deserves to be placed in the top tier of upcoming Wii titles, alongside Smash Bros, Mario, and Metroid. In addition, for fear of an Eternal Darkness repeat (the ”˜great game gets criminally overlooked’ scenario), they’ve officially started the Buy Zak & Wiki Campaign 2007.

Give a lot of guff to IGN, I does, but in this case I’m willing to give them a break. Silly title or no, this title might be the match that reignites people’s thirst for quality adventure games. As long as they aren’t of the incestuous Blue Lagoon ilk, I think we’ll be alright.
