The Oregon Trail for the Wii


THE OREGON TRAIL

RATING E for Everyone

PLOT Go West

DETAILS Wii, $20

BOTTOM LINE Feels scraped together

A new version of this pioneering adventure has arrived for the Wii, and it feels stuck in the 16-bit era of its three-decade-old predecessor. Poor visuals, faulty controls and a severe lack of updating the game play mar what should be modern retelling of a classic. Much of the original game is preserved: You start off in Independence, Mo., stocking up on supplies and venturing forth into the wild unknown. Trials and tribulations occur, from roaming bandits to broken axels.
