is yet another in the endless list of examples why video game tie-ins are generally a bad idea. The best you can say is that in cynical business marketing terms, those involved can usually count on squeezing a few extra bucks out of the franchise, no questions asked as to the particular quality of the product in question.
Pros: Uh…it pays unconvincing lip service to environmental issues?
Cons: The game is boring., No challenge involved, even for the youngest of gamers., Dull and boring graphics.
Excerpt: Last weekend Editor in Chief Kirby Y and I took our daughters to see WALL•E at one of our local movie theaters. While the kids are still a little too young to fully appreciate the movie, us dads were quite impressed. Yet again Pixar has delivered a great looking movie, and as usual the storyline sucks you right in. When I watch the majority of Pixar movies I almost always find myself really caring for the movie’s main hero(s) and with WALL•E it was no different.
Conclusion: WALL-E looks like it is shaping up to be a great family game. I can imagine families sitting down and playing through this game together, and hopefully it will provide a great experience for families with young children. And since it is coming to every important console, if you want to take home a piece of WALL-E, you'll get your chance this summer!
Conclusion: Anyone, from kids to adults, can pick up and play this title; it’s fairly easy to get through it, despite some challenging levels that require more platforming skills. The story is charming but ironic at the same time. Lighthearted humor is served throughout, making WALL-E one of the most fun kids’ games an adult can play. If you’re not into animated movies, you should just skip this one altogether.
Excerpt: Graphics & Sound: I'm sure you've at least seen ads for Disney-Pixar's latest movie Wall-E . Well the folks at THQ were nice enough to give us a game based off of the movie to extend our experiences with the adorable Wall-E.
Now I haven't seen the movie, but I have seen screen shots, and from what I've seen there, the DS version of Wall-e doesn't even compare graphically.
Summary: Players will take control of WALL-E and EVE through a fast-paced adventure based on the upcoming Disney/Pixar film. The game will allow fans to relive some of the movie’s most thrilling moments as they explore 10 worlds filled with non-stop action and adventure, along with head-to-head multiplayer challenges.
