You don't need to travel as far as another world to find the strange and alien. In fact, you don't have to travel very far at all - you just have to think smaller. Thinking small isn't always a bad thing - it's that kind of thinking that gets us to the creepiness of Deadly Creatures.

Yup, THQ hopes to set your Wii crawling with nasty things that you wouldn't want to find in your sleeping bag. Fortunately, it decided to do so with a new game rather than a strange new form of biological attack - Deadly Creatures is that game.

An action thriller, the game follows the "entwined adventures" of an armoured scorpion and a tarantula as they make their way through the desert and try to stay alive in the face of Gila monsters, Tarantula Wasps, Black Widows and... go on, guess... yeah, us lot. The evil humans!

Combat resembles that of a beat 'em up/brawler, forcing players to fight using all the tools at their creature's disposal.

Oozing with atmosphere, the game makes the most of a rich colour palette and the inherent strangeness of life in the nooks and crannies of the desert to craft an off-kilter and unsettling game that should help to soothe the hunger pangs of the under-nourished core Wii gamer.
