MrMilkman's "Up" review extravaganza

When I added this game, it was purely a "trophy hunt" add. The trophys are easy to get, and the platinum only took me 6 hours. But on to the gameplay aspect; The graphics are what to be expected in a movie game adaptation. Not great, more like ps2 graphics. The playthrough time is about 3 to 4 hours, maybe less. The story goes like this, An elderly man and a boyscout (already questionable) go on an amazon themed adventure in search of a land he and his deceased wife dreampt of seeing. (I'm sure you've heard of "Up" by now, you dont need to know the story.) As they drag thier house around the generic level sets, you solve easy puzzles that dont need to be there, but are so easy they don't slow the "action". OH GOD THE ACTION!!! Push a rock on the guiser, SUPER GUISER!!! catapult your partner, CATAPULT!!! ect. For some reason there were no story cutscenes. I would just end up somewhere with no set up, but maybe that was just me. I feel this is a mean review because its not meant for the 18+ crowd. (obviously) but for what it was I did enjoy the search for all the treasure and trophies. And if I was playing this with a cousin it may have been more fun. There is a multiplayer side to this adventure of awsomeness. You fly a biplane in all 3 modes, it gets boring fast. All and all its a good game to quiet the younglings, and after they go to bed, just pick "UP" a few easy trophys. See what I did there? NO!? stupid...

I played this with my 7 year old son in co-op mode which is really the best way to play it. We got through the whole game in 2 sittings total of about 5 hours. The game is really easy. There are a few boss type battles that might give you some trouble, but the parent can take most of the load if it gets too hard for kids. It's a pretty simple collect-a-thon and adventure to the next point by moving rocks and fighting off enemies (dogs, spiders, bees, etc). You won't be bowled over by the gameplay but it delivers on what you would expect. The final airplane mission was probably the most fun and challenging.

I had alot of fun playing this game but beat it the same night I got it. Was pretty cute though and my kids enjoyed watching me play it.
