Wii, THQ, £29.99

If I could have played this game with my eyes

shut, I would have. There aren’t torrents of gore

or graphic beheadings, but this gave me the

shudders like nothing before. That’s undoubtedly

because I’m properly scared of spiders – and I’m

not terribly fond of scorpions, either – and

Deadly Creatures is packed to the rafters with

’em. Nor are ophiophobics safe either, as

snakes aplenty occur, too. The game sees all

manner of creepy-crawly biting things doing

battle and I give it a trembling thumbs up.
