When I first saw that Game Fly carried this game, I thought that maybe it would carry the same awe that the movie it was based upon had. Then I glanced down and saw the Rating, and at the time, had a 5.3. I knew from my Gaming Sense that there was something wrong here, so I was naturally inclined to check it out.
Assuming that the movie and game producers had the same mind set, you would think that they would want to make money off the game and movie, without giving away the movie through the game, and visa verse. After a chance at playing, I realized that the game was misleading; it did not follow the same theme as the movie at all.
Considering that the game had difficult controls and lack of freedom to explore, this game would often be the last one to make much of a stride in Gaming History. The constant monotonous playtime would make the next move in the game predictable and very easy.
This game, which had unusually easy, repetitive motions, made the next enemy movement a predictable one. It also lacked freedom to do as you wished or let you explore throughout the game. This game had a 'straight track' playing system where you would need to go from Point A to Point B, instead of letting you go around and have more freedom.
Just like many games, there are some such as this one that could use a few tweaks and upgrades here and there. This is one of many games that you could play, learn the style, and breeze through it. However, you could always increase the difficulty and jump to another area.
Like one person to another, this game changes from one person to the next. For example, Gamer A could think that this game needs help, while Gamer B may think that this was the best game ever. It all changes with perspective.
In the end, I would give this game a 7 because of the ease of use after many plays; knowing that you can do this to get that for instance. After a hard day of Gaming, you could just sit back and zip on through it, one movement after another.
