Short but sweet

Great graphics, solid controls, and decent voice acting. Does not follow the storyline of the movie but none the less an okay story. Convoluted a bit but still the story is a throw away with games like these. Enjoyable and a very easy platinum trophy.

Very Good

Short but sweet!

This is quite a short game, even for a kids game, but what it lacks in length it makes up for in fun and overall quality!

The controls are solid, especially for a movie tie-in game, with some fun melee combos and a simple auto-targeting feature for your gun. And there's a standard upgrade/shop system that makes mining and busting objects for "Sheriff Points" worth your time. There's a bit of jumping and climbing, of course, and some rail gliding as well, which were some of my favorite parts.

The game looks and sounds fantastic. Rango in particular is just as well animated and lovable as he was in the movie. The characters are clearly voiced by different actors than in the movie, but it's done well enough that it's not distracting. The music is really catchy and fits the tone of the game to a T.

It does not follow the same storyline as the movie; each level is a different tall tale told by Rango, with a larger story arc tying it all together, leading to a nice amount of variety in the environments and gameplay. The game takes place after the events in the movie, so if you haven't seen it yet, you will be very slightly spoiled (but see the movie even if you don't rent the game; it's terrific).

Overall, I would definitely recommend a rental!

I found the game half fun and the other half boring. Truth is I only rented this for the easy platinum. Rent this game trophy hunters. :)
