Conclusion: I used the word "charm" a few times now but it fits this title so well, it just has so fricking much of it. Tired of boosting “Seriously” ? Just finished a long ass RPG ? Take a break with this game, no stress, just some good old platforming.
Excerpt: The world is labouring under the weight of movie tie-ins, every significant, even remotely popular movie or franchise will inevitably spawn a tie in game on every platform. Having not ventured into this territory since Toy Story 2 on the original PlayStation, my hopes were not high for Rango.
Excerpt: The day before I gave Rango for the Xbox 360 a spin, I brought my eight year old daughter and her buddy to the local theatre and took in Rango the big screen animated movie. We all enjoyed the movie despite an accidental pop spill that left a certain unnamed person drenched the entire time.
Excerpt: There’s an age old law around these parts and it goes a little something like this: movie-game tie-ins tend to be dismal. The reason for this dismal performance lies in the motive for the game, the publishers are prospecting every last ounce of gold that they can from a movie’s hype and often with...
Conclusion: Clearly, the game is designed for younger players in mind (although that seems somewhat at odds with the older crowds that Rango is attracting in the theaters). The game is just a scant five hours long and the lack of extra gameplay modes drags the game's replay value down considerably.
Conclusion: Concept: Tell another series of tall tales with the cast of the animated movie
Graphics: It’s a great-looking game, with oddball characters and memorable settings
Sound: Rango’s filled with fun riffs on Western soundtracks, from the signature song on down
Playability: Any deaths you might experience...
Excerpt: In the spirit of its unconventional cinematic counterpart, this videogame adaptation exudes eccentric personality. The narrative picks up sometime after the events of the film, with Rango as sheriff of a dusty desert town called Dirt.
Pros: + Maneuvering through the desert as Rango is a blast., + Looks really good, especially for a licensed game.
Cons: - Some awkward camera angles can be confusing; repetitive action early on., ? Why use a Johnny Depp voice-alike instead of the real thing?
Conclusion: Rango is an endearing little platform game that on the surface does almost everything right for its demographic. There's platform-jumping, rail grinding, riding sections and more, but it all adds up to nothing when the game is as short as it is.
Conclusion: At the end of the day, it's a pretty standard-issue kids game with a six-hour duration. But with a couple of genuinely brilliant sections, some super-slick presentation, the gonzo-riffic undercurrent and the general 'roll a funny ciggie while you play' factor, Rango has a hell of a lot more going...
