Summary: Cinephiles have been bemoaning for years, if not veritable decades now, how the movie industry appears to have completely run out of ideas. Not only is there precious little of any substance, with any intellectual or literary cachet to recommend it, little of the clever, urbane witticisms of the...
Pros: If you were among the 15 or so adolescents scattered across the country who actually, liked, this sad travesty of a remake of an amusing but ultimately mediocre 30 year old claymation genre film, then hey, this stinker of a game is based on it!
Cons: Where do I start? Complicated weapon seizure process and menu navigation/assignment., Being forced to sit through the same childish, violent animation every time you seize a weapon, and being forced to do this to beat nearly every enemy in the game., As above, so below - the movie blew mightily,...
Conclusion: If you want a good hack and slash experience full of angry gods and mythology, you’re better off with the God of War series. Even if you’re playing through the PS2 ones, they will look and play immeasurably better than Clash of the Titans.
Conclusion: This game was just flat out not fun and I wouldn’t even recommend trying it out. Nothing compels the player to play the game for more than a couple hours let alone deal with its crap for over 15 hours.
Conclusion: In many ways, Monday Night Combat feels like a well-tuned fan-made mod. It may lack the content of a full retail game but what you do get is a superb multiplayer experience that surpasses some of those major retail titles.
Excerpt: The inherent problem with games based on movies is simple. The average action flick lasts from 90 minutes to two hours, but most gamers would be outraged if they spent $40-50 for something where the credits rolled that quickly.
Excerpt: If you weren’t already aware, this is a video game based on a movie property. More specifically, one based on a mediocre remake of another movie produced in 1981. For some people, that is going to be enough information to decide not to take the plunge on this title, though to be fair, there have...
Excerpt: It's never a good sign when a licensed game arrives hot on the heels of a home release. Clash of the Titans does nothing to dispel that stigma. It's a real shame; I'm a huge fan of the 1981 Ray Harryhausen epic, and though I have no desire to see the remake, I don't have any problems with its...
Conclusion: A veritable buffet of torture devices is available for dispatching your enemies, spanning everything from bone scythes, fiery magical powers, and ornate bows, to freshly plucked scorpion tails. Only four weapons can be equipped at any time, and you use the D pad to switch between them on the fly.
Pros: Mostly faithful film story adaptation, Boss fights provide much needed gameplay variety.
Cons: Shallow, repetitive hack-and-slash gameplay, Laborious item collection, Wooden voice acting, Pointless weapon upgrade system, Constant wrestling with finicky camera controls.
Excerpt: The official video game adaptation of Clash of the Titans is ultimately just as forgettable as its silver-screen inspiration, with what could have been a solid God of War clone ending up as little more than yet another disappointing hack-n-slash movie tie-in.
Pros: A decent weapon-stealing mechanic makes battling fun... for the first few hours.
