Megamind: Ultimate Showdown
21 December 2010
Conclusion: So that's Megamind: Ultimate Showdown then - the epitome of a terrible movie tie-in game. Some silly parents will no doubt still buy it for their children, because there's a Dreamworks logo on the cover and it's about that film what's at the pictures, innit. At least the rest of us can have a good laugh at their expense.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Dreamworks’ latest animated feature starring Will Farell gets a franchised release on the PS3 and Xbox 360 in the form of Megamind: Ultimate Showdown. The problem with movie-based games is that studios generally rush to make a quick buck based on the popularity of the movie.
Excerpt: I get ribbed a bit from my Youtube cohorts for “playing kid’s games.” When you go through my PS3 trophy score, you will see games like Lego Harry Potter , Ratchet and Clank , Sly Cooper , and so on. Part of this can be excused by the fact that I have a soon-to-be eight year old son, but another part of it is also attributable to the fact that I have always been a nut for platformers, and you just don’t really see hard-edged platformers that aren’t also third person...
Excerpt: Video games based on film licenses often tend to fall into a not just a puddle, but a steaming vat of awfulness.

The tie-in videogame features neither of these things. Is this enough to dismiss it entirely? Certainly not. Megamind is a surprisingly entertaining action platformer featuring inventive puzzles and imaginative weapons.
Excerpt: A tesztlaborban akadt még néhány játék, melyek az év végi zsúfoltság következtében a polcon kallódtak. Ilyen cím a Megamind - Ultimate Showdown is, amely a mozikban futó "Megaagy" licensze alapján készült. Ócska átirat, vagy könnyed remekmű? Nem nehéz kitalálni... Teszt!
Conclusion: Megamind: Ultimate Showdown bjuder på plattformsaction men utan varken hjärta eller hjärna, trots att det är ett bitvis välgjort spel. Istället blir det ett repetitivt springandes genom banor med pussel som snarare handlar om att utrusta rätt vapen till rätt hinder. Inte ens detta blir utmanande och istället blir exaktheten i kontrollen det enda som bjuder på lite utmaning, något som snarare är ett problem i ett spel riktat mot en yngre publik.
