A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
The central idea of this game, as with most superhero stories, is that violence is necessary to serve justice.
Violence & Scariness
Though presented without blood or close-ups, Zorroâ€™s primary actions are bullwhipping and sword fighting opponents. The enemies wail when struck, and vanish once defeated.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this action adventure game follows the exploits of the classic, masked superhero. Though he's a "good guy," the character does use a bullwhip and sword as his primary tools of justice. The controls are abysmal, making the game frustrating to play.
Is It Any Good?
Skillfully slicing symbols into the environment with a sword and whip seem like an ideal way to use the Wii's motion controls, but Zorro just doesn't – ahem – cut it. Poor graphics and frustratingly inaccurate controls will disappoint even fans of the Zorro character and universe. There's nothing so maddening as a game that handicaps a beloved superhero with weak production values and clunky gameplay.
Even in tutorial mode the moves are nearly impossible to correctly execute and when you finally do nail a combination, it feels more like luck than skill. Compounding matters, there are no difficulty settings. The game's last-generation graphics and awkward camera angles don't help either. The Destiny of Zorro, in short, feels unfinished and sloppy.
