Megamind: Ultimate Showdown
11 March 2014
Conclusion: However, for it's many and obvious faults, i enjoyed Megamind while it lasted (not long!), it's clearly a better rental than an outright purchase, though since in the UK at least it is readily available for less than £15 brand new, it will not cost much to pick up second hand i shouldn't imagine. Worth a play for some supremely easy Gamerscore, and also at least a bit of fun.
Game starts where movie ends; jammed with sci-fi fighting.

Summary: Parents need to know that Megamind: Ultimate Showdown is a video-game sequel to the new animated film, Megamind , but that unlike the targeted audience of the movie (kids ages 6 and up), this game is for kids ages 10 and older. The protagonist of the game is a former villain who has renounced his evil ways and taken up being a hero. There's a lot of cartoony violence in the game, including ray gun blasts, vehicle crashes, exploding missiles, and hand-to-hand fighting.
Excerpt: Chronorage doesn’t set out to blow you away with brand new game mechanics or to melt your mind with original game play, but that doesn’t stop it from being an enjoyable shoot-’em-up with wide appeal. Waves of alien invaders are hell-bent on your destruction and it’s up to you and your space lasers to keep them at bay, directing fire with the computer’s mouse and moving your ship around with the keyboard.
Excerpt: As long as there are famous people there will always be an animated film for them to lend their vocal talents. With the current rate they are being released we will soon have Jim Davidson voicing an animated Capybara who is a diversity officer in Disney Pixars new film, Melting Pot: The Movie.
Excerpt: We’ve reached the point in the 360’s lifecycle where even movie tie-ins have decent graphics. Too bad that’s the only part of Megamind: Ultimate Showdown that doesn’t totally suck. Like many licensed cash-ins before it, the game throws you into situations not seen in the source material and forces you to fight enemies you’ve never heard of…with voice actors you wish you’d never heard.
Pros: + No positives.
Cons: - Painfully repetitive level design and gameplay., - Insipid voice-acting that’s nowhere near as good as the vocal talent in the actual film., - You fart to double jump. Seriously., ? If the entire OXM community focuses its collective mental energy, can we make this game disappear?
Summary: Games based on movies are released so that the cinema experience can be extended to the home though very few receive rave reviews. Megamind released in cinemas prior to Christmas and received great critical praise. It’s a shame the same can’t be said for the accompanying video game.
Pros: Easy 1000 GamerScore, Jonah Hill as a voice actor
Cons: Nothing challenging in the game, Poorly developed, Weak multiplayer
Summary: Vous le savez tous, chaque sortie d'un film d'animation au cinéma est s'accompagne désormais systématiquement d'une adaptation vidéo-ludique. Aucune chance pour que Megamind, le super-vilain imaginé par les créateurs de Shrek, échappe à cette règle. Habitué du genre, c'est finalement l'éditeur THQ qui a acquis les droits de la licence pour en faire un jeu vidéo, et cela après les adaptations de Ratatouille, Wall-E et Là-Haut.
Pros: Un scénario inédit, Graphiquement correct
Cons: Moins de 3 heures pour en venir à bout, Aucun challenge, Intérêt proche du néant
Excerpt: Alors que Megamind est enfin devenu un mega-héros, de nouveaux malfaiteurs s'attaquent à la ville, sur laquelle le Gang du Malheur a prévu de faire main basse. Et seuls Megamind et ses méga-gadgets pourront les arrêter. Retrouvez tous les personnages dans 3 aventures uniques selon la console...
Excerpt: Megamind, le film des studios Dreamworks, écope lui aussi d'adaptations vidéoludiques multisupport. Après une version Wii peu passionnante, voyons donc ce qu'il en est de Megamind : Le Face-à-Face Ultime, sortant cette fois-ci sur consoles HD.
