Megamind Ultimate Showdown
12 January 2011
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
