As others have mentioned, this is the easiest platinum trophy you will ever earn. If you are a trophy hunter, you may stop reading now and go rent the game.
I enjoyed the movie Megamind when I saw it in theatres and was pleasantly surprised by how the characters were handled for this game. The game has a familiar sense of humor if you have seen the movie. For example, whenever Megamind references the final boss Blue Titan, his subtitles read, "Blue Tighten."
The gameplay is simplistic, easy, and repetitive, but the game is also over much too quickly for it to grate on my nerves. The ability to power up weapons only made the game that much easier as enemies did not seem to become more powerful even as Megamind did. What did start to wear on me was the game's absolute refusal to allow the player to solve puzzles (already very simple) for themself. Minion is always there to tell you to flip a switch or pick up a key item, just in case you couldn't figure it out on your own.
There is no real incentive to re-play the game (and you will get a platinum on your first run without the need for a trophy guide), but it kept me entertained for about 3 hours.
This game is perfect for a weekend rental. If it were not for the simplicity of the game and its length, it would actually be a pretty decent title.
this game is actually not that bad even though in my opinion there are to many fights. the boss fights are very easy and i only had to play through the game once to get the platinum. time wise the game may take about 2-3 hours depending on skill level. overall the game is okay but way to short. so dont buy just rent
