Excerpt: I’m not sure what’s left to say about bad videogame/movie tie-ins that hasn’t already been said before. But if any of you out there were holding on to hope that Kick-Ass would be a worthwhile PSN game, then I’m sorry to say that it falls into the usual category of poor movie-to-videogame tie-ins. The monotonous and unbalanced gameplay, glaring technical issues, and short playtime do nothing to justify the $14.99 price tag.
Excerpt: While Kick-Ass helps praise the value of the modern day vigilante, it provides its own best example for why you should leave the heavy lifting to the professionals. Shallow brawler gameplay, bland presentation, and technical foibles plague this downloadable game, providing plenty of reasons why you should keep your underwear on the insides of your pants.
Pros: Redistributable skill points, Good character likenesses
Cons: Repetitive button-mashing gameplay, Bland, rehashed environments, Slowdown and audio glitches, Incompetent AI
Excerpt: Crafting a successful superhero movie is easier said than done. The best of the genre -- and Christopher Nolan 's Batman movies immediately spring to mind -- take what in some quarters could be considered ridiculous and turn it into the sublime. Respecting audience and source material in equal measure, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight entertained, provoked thought, garnered critical acclaim, and pulled in a fortune at the box office.
