Heat seeker is an unusual game for the Wii, a combat flight game, where the player must take out the forces of a dictator, holding the world to nuclear ransom.
The different theatres of war include Korea, the Caribbean and even Antarctica, and the landscape is very destructible, with infrastructure such as bridges and buildings being damaged and destroyed by missile and cannon fire. A feature of the game is ImpactCam, where the player can watch the missile from different angles fly to the target, and then watch the destruction unfold.
Missions vary from straight dogfights to destroying targets on land and sea, and the player can view the action from the cockpit or in third person from behind the aircraft.
The game was released also on PS2 and PSP, the latter version was not well received. While the Wii and PS2 reviews were mixed, most agreed that the game looked rough around the edges, but played reasonably well, and that if the game had been released a couple of years earlier, it would have been received better.
