Survivor Now on Wii and DS for the First Time

For the first time ever, CBS’ Survivor series has become a video game for the Nintendo Wii and DS systems and is in stores now! Wait, really? After all these years there hasn’t been a single Survivor game for these systems yet? Weird. The Wii version actually uses the Wii Balance Board as well, which is actually very fitting for the game. You’ll have to make alliances, pass challenges, even forage for resources and build a shelter to win at this game. Just like in the show, there can only be one winner.

I actually watched the first season of the show right before the “Reality show” hype really took off, but haven’t bothered since then. Knowing there are producers hiding in the jungle and that most of the stuff is scripted kind of ruins the feel of the show for me, but I could see it working really well for a game. Check out the gallery after the break for plenty of screen shots from each version.
