Hit the wilds of Africa armed with… a camera? Read on to get up close and personal with Gary’s Wild Earth: African Safari game review.

The African savannah is full of lions, elephants, wildebeest and more dangerous creatures. Wild Earth: African Safari challenges you to dive headfirst into the wilderness armed with nothing but a camera and a mission. As a photojournalist, it's up to you to to snap pictures of the fantastic animals in their native environment for a fabulous magazine article. Here's the 411 with Gary's game review.

Go Wild!

Using the Wiimote and Nunchuck, you roam around the 3D African wilderness snapping pictures. Two wildlife experts stay on the radio, chatting at you about what you're seeing and letting you know what pictures you need to take - from piles of elephant poop to charging lions! Nothing's going to eat you, but you need to make sure not to disturb the wildlife or your mission gets aborted. There are a bunch of assignments to go on, multiplayer modes for two players, and wacky mini-games you can unlock - from flamingo DDR to running around as different animals.

Awesome Africa

Not only is this game easy to play, nothing's going to try to eat you or blast you with alien death-rays. Instead, it's a chance to see how animals in Africa live - from elephants chillin' in the mud to lions on the hunt! You get to take pictures of them doing their thing, learn what they're doing why they do it and then share the pictures with your friends. It's a lot of fun and the multiplayer mode lets a second player jump in to help out by driving a vehicle as you snap pictures. Finally, unlocking the mini-games gives you more to do.

Heaps of Poo

The biggest problem is that you can't save multiplayer mode pictures! It really sucks! You can't jump either, which is a bit annoying but not a huge problem.

Trip Worth Taking?

Wild Earth: African Safari is a very cool game for a bunch of reasons. Not only is it totally non-violent, you get to learn about what the animals in Africa are up to and you can take some awesome pictures. The multiplayer issue is a pain, but it's a lot of fun and easy enough for anyone to play. Even parents!
