Excerpt: Let’s admit it, if you know anything about predicting the quality of videogames by now, it’s that movie-based games are most likely not very good. Unlike other movie games, Clash of the Titans: The Videogame was delayed until a few months after the movie release, so perhaps some effort was actually put into this title, right?
Summary: Clash of the Titans, based on the remake of the classic movie, is an action adventure game depicting the ultimate battle of good vs. evil. Set in the timeless grandeur of Greek mythology, the game tells the story of the epic battle for dominance between the human race and the powerful gods Hades and Zeus.
Excerpt: It's sort of a given these days that big action movies have to have their own video games. It's also a given that gamers groan at the sight of said games, knowing them to be nothing more than supporting revenue-generators, destined for blandness. Who knows what Warner Bros. Interactive had in mind when deciding to publish Clash of the Titans: The Videogame , but when you play it, it's obvious the developer, Game Republic, did its level best to exceed the limits of your...
Excerpt: I really wanted to love Clash of the Titans . Looking at trailers beforehand, I saw a hack n’ slash title that clearly borrowed ideas from God of War , added more weapons and more enemies from Greek Mythology. However, it’s generally not a good sign when a movie tie-in game misses the movie’s release date. It’s also not a good sign when the game releases late and there are still numerous rough edges that should have been addressed by the Game Republic team.
Excerpt: You know what would be cool? A fast paced, bloody hack and slash game set in the ultra cool world of Greek mythology. Oh wait, there’s a whole franchise like that - in fact, we even gave the latest version a damn near perfect score ( http://www.cheathappens.com/reviews/godofwar3.asp ). You can guess where this is going. The video game adaptation of the new Clash of the Titans movie isn’t going to earn a perfect score, heck - it’s not even going to get a positive one.
Namco’s Newest Clash Is A Wet And Sloppy Collision
1 August 2010
Conclusion: Concept: Make a God of War clone to coincide with the movie, miss the movie’s marketing campaign by months, and weep for the lost opportunity to cash in
Graphics: The game’s textures are so messy it looks like some terrible Grecian sacrifice was performed in every level. The character models have the expressiveness of dead fish
Sound: The dialogue is delivered with the tempered enthusiasm of a Paxil user, and the characters sound so similar that I suspect the same voice...
Excerpt: It comes a bit late to be a perfect tie-in with the recent 3D film, but the videogame version of Clash of the Titans has arrived. Developed by Game Republic, the Japanese developer of games like Genji and Folklore, this clash pits Greek hero Perseus against a multitude of mythological men and monsters. Action adventure is the best description, but the game has enough flaws and shortcomings to qualify as a minor tragedy.
