Rio

True achievements
30 August 2011
  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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...

14 April 2011
  • Summary: In the tradition of Fuzion Frenzy and the Mario Party games comes Rio. Rio tosses the vibrant avian stars of the animated film of the same name into a host of simple minigames. Not all of the games here will hold the interest of even young players for very long, and Rio fails to capitalize on its...
  • Pros: Many enjoyable minigames, Just $30
  • Cons: Doesn't take advantage of film license, Some games are too basic to appeal to players of any age

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

  • Conclusion: Toplamda 43 adet mini oyunu kapsayan Rio, belki başlarda "Ne kadar da çok oyun varmış?" dedirtebilir fakat oyun, belirli bir süreden sonra kendini tekrarlamaya başlıyor

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

Rio im Test

insidegames.ch
24 April 2011
  • Summary: Nach der kürzlich erschienen Filmumsetzung Rango, welches übrigens ganz gut ist, gesellt sich Rio dazu. Statt aufs Jump n’ Run Segmente zu setzen versucht Rio mit zahlreichen Minispielen zu begeistern. Ob der Schuss nach hinten los geht erfahrt ihr in unserem Rio Test.
  • Pros: Kooperativ spielbar, Über 40 verschiedene Minispiele, Gute Erklärungen der Minispiele, Solide Technik, Niedriger Anschaffungspreis, Flüssiges Spielgeschehen, keine Ruckler, Einfache Steuerung
  • Cons: Keine Langzeitmotivation, Fehlender Bezug zum Kinofilm, Kaum Wiederspielwert
