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: movie-based titles that totally disrespects instead of paying honorable homage to its God of War muse. Following the Greek mythology story of the movie, Clash of the Titans tells the tale of first the defeat of the Greek Titans by their sons – Zeus, Poseidon and Hades, the bad-asses of the Greek...
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.
Summary: Clash of the Titans is an unfortunate case of lost potential. Despite the source material, this game had all the makings to be, at the very least, a great God of War knock off. But instead, it winds up falling way short of the high bar set by that franchise.
Movie-based hack-fest with loads of man-on-monster violence.

Summary: Parents need to know that movie-based game Clash of the Titans shares the movie's violent and sometimes-scary themes. Though no blood is spilled (monsters ooze goo instead), there's nothing cartoonish about the fights in this game, as realistic melee weapons are used to rend enemies limb-from-limb.
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.
