Turbo: Super Stunt Squad game review
Boys' Life magazine
27 July 2013
Excerpt: “Turbo” is one of the big movies this summer. Think “Cars” meets wacky terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusks: er, snails. It’s a spin on the classic “slow and steady wins the race,” except Turbo wants to be anything but slow. Turbo: Super Stunt Squad is the videogame very loosely based on the movie. There are actually two versions of the game. In the PS3 and Xbox 360 games, there’s no racing; instead, it’s more like a Tony Hawk skateboarding game – with snails.
Pros: [XBox 360] Tony Hawk-like tricks, very challenging, creative powerups, [3DS] Mario Kart-like game, cool track design, cute characters
Cons: [XBox 360] No online play, too challenging for younger kids, mediocre graphics, [3DS] No online play, uninspired music, mediocre graphics
Excerpt: Many companies will not even try to compete with and against Nintendo on their own hand held video game system. Most companies take one look and Mario Kart 7, and say: "no way we can compete with that."D3Publisher is not most companies though. They have taken the Turbo Super Stunt Squad license and created a neat little racer on the Nintendo 3DS.
Conclusion: Turbo: Super Stunt Squad is rated E for Everyone with an ESRB descriptor of Comic Mischief. If you get hit or fall off the track or wipe out, you just disappear and respawn again. If you’re OK with your kids watching the movie, they’ll definitely be OK with the game, too. Reading skill isn’t necessary, but younger players may get frustrated at the difficulty and lack of good instructions on how to play.
Summary: When licensed titles are developed with more love and care — see the potential of Disney Infinity and some others from studios such as WayForward — it's difficult to play a rushed and dull product like this one. It's destined for the bargain bin once the movie is out of theaters, and there are simply too many good racing titles out there to warrant a purchase. Players are advised to steer clear and spend their time and money elsewhere.
Conclusion: Det er ikke altfor mange uker siden jeg anmeldte Skylanders Swap Force her på siden. Jeg lot meg imponere av hvor mye tid og krefter utviklerne hadde brukt på noe som i bunn og grunn var et barnespill. Skaperne av Skylanders-serien mente bestemt at barn var opptatt av kvalitet. Folkene bak Turbo Super Stunt Squad derimot, krysser fingrene for at dette ikke stemmer. Turbo Super Stunt Squad er et spill basert på Dreamworks-filmen Turbo.
Pros: Tålelig grafikk, en del utfordringer per bane
Cons: Minimalt med historie og referanser til filmen, lite innhold, kronglete å manøvrere, rotete menyer, ikke norsk språk, lite intuitiv opplæringsdel, kjedelig banedesign
