Disaster: Day of Crisis is not worth $50, Reggie says

In a brutally honest interview with IGN about Wii survival title Disaster: Day of Crisis (recapped in an IGN podcast), Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime expressed his concern over quality issues with the title, and all but confirmed it would not see a North American release unless sales improved dramatically in Europe.

Calling the voice work "laughable," Fils-Aime went on to say he did not believe the title was worth US$50. Similar complaints about game quality have been raised elsewhere on the Internet, including inconsistent level design; and wonky controls schemes that jump from decent driving simulations to on-rails, Time Crisis-like levels with atrocious enemy AI.

For now, it would seem, our European cousins are serving as guinea pigs for this seemingly doomed title. A North American release seems even more doubtful today, but we'll keep you posted.
