  • Conclusion: Even with the game installed on my hard drive, I'd say 30% of the time I spent actually playing was either staring at a loading screen or watching some stupid cut-scene the game wouldn't let me skip. All in all, this wasn't a bad place to drop 10 hours. In my quest for easy gamerscore, I have certainly done worse.

  • Excerpt: On the heels of the movie's release in theatres comes the inevitable tie-in game for Rio. The odd exception aside, game's based on movies typically don't have the greatest track record. Too often quality is second to the simple marketing cash grab. Does Rio manage to overcome this stigma? Let's find out.

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: To answer the question posed at the beginning of this review: Rio does a decent job of aiding the campaign to revitalize the licensed game market. Unlike a lot of the minigame collections out there on the market, it has some noticeable effort that was put into it, as well as some polish and creativity. It does however lack a star game mode attraction and could've used more minigames with less of a focus on tried and true formulas like collection.

  • Summary: Lacking in personality and inconsistent throughout, Rio is nothing more than your average movie tie-in.

Test: Rio

XboxFront
9 July 2011
  • Summary: Zu jedem großen Hollywood-Film erscheint selbstverständlich auch eine Softwareumsetzung. Rio von Dreamworks Animation macht da keine Ausnahme. Meist spielt man bei solchen Titeln die Story des Films nach, anders verhält es sich bei Rio, denn das Spiel ist eine waschechte Minispielsammlung.
  • Pros: + unkomplizierte Minispiele, + gute Steuerung, + nette Präsentation, - viele Minispiele ähneln sich, - kein Online-Modus, - relativ lange Ladezeiten
