the two-player mode was limited and boring. The game play was confusing and didn't give you enough info to start out. It didn't tell me what I was supposed to be doing. Just plops you down in the middle of a hive to let you figure it out for yourself.
The game is, of course, based on the movie. I know, shocker.
You are, yes, a bee. Your goal in life is to leave the hive and interact with humans. This game follows your pursuit of this dream and, later, your pursuit of a man who is stealing all of the bee's honey in pursuit of world domination or some such nonsense.
The game is an ode to Quick-Time Events. You get them by the truckload in the game with pretty much level using them fairly extensively. You use them to get through traffic and to fight off humans. Your final boss "fight" is, basically, a lengthy QTE. And don't even get me started on how insanely cheap the final fight is. Words don't do justice.
You know, I liked Dragon's Lair back in 1983 or so --- but it does not mean that I like that particular style of gameplay NOW, but it seems to be more prevalent now than ever before.
Stop me if this sounds like a really riveting title. Because gameplay wise, it ain't.
But the cutscenes and the like ARE good and are voiced by the actors. So, yes, this game has better cutscenes than gameplay --- but, hey, it's something to hang their hats on, so who am I to condemn?
This game is a fairly easy target for 1000 Achievement Points, and you might find some of the cutscenes entertaining, but like all of the movie games but Harry Potter, it's not anything you'll regret missing, nor will you remember much about it an hour after you finish playing it.
