The core gameplay is still fairly amusing - and the attract sequence still clearly ripped off from the Arnie classic, Commando - but between the low technical quality of this version and a control method that is simply wrong, this is another VC offering best left alone.
The NES edition was crippled in its visuals, in particular, and seemed disappointing in comparison to the coin-op version. And now that same NES edition is crippled even further on the Virtual Console, as here there's no way to use a Zapper light gun to play the game in the way it was originally intended. Nintendo's made it clear that little if any effort is being made with Virtual Console games to update them before they arrive in the Wii Shop, and that policy, though strict, works perfectly well for the majority of titles to hit the service. But Operation Wolf just doesn't work at all, and should never have been selected as an addition to the VC lineup without some sort of light gun compatibility solution. Stay far, far away from this new low on the Virtual Console – it's not worth anywhere near its 500 Wii Point asking price.
If you happen to harbour fond memories of the arcade version then please do not go anywhere near this dire conversion as it will bear no resemblance to the game you once loved.
