Excerpt: Have you heard about Hotel Transylvania yet? If not, I am sure in the coming months you will hear all about it. I will not dig too much into the movie since I am focusing on the Nintendo 3DS game based off of the movie.
Excerpt: To say that platformers are my least favorite genre is an understatement. I’ve never understood the appeal. All that jumping around with very vague (if any) story. Nothing about the genre has ever clicked for me. So then you’re probably wondering why I agreed to review Hotel Transylvania .
Excerpt: A few weeks ago I took my daughter and her buddy to go see Hotel Transylvania on the big screen. We went in with big expectations but walked away a tad underwhelmed. Much like the big screen movie, Hotel Transylvania for the 3DS fell a little short in the expectations department.
Summary: Hotel Transylvania had strong potential to overcome the stigma of movie tie-in games, but with clumsy controls, repetitive gameplay, and a front-to-back experience lasting less than three hours, it's difficult to see it as anything more than a well-intentioned cash in.
