To start the week off right, we’ve got a pair of new reviews for you. First, Dennis has downloaded World of Goo from 2D Boy, and has some thoughts on this multi-platform sticky title. Then I’ve posted my take on The Princess Bride: Storming the Castle by Playroom Entertainment and Toy Vault. The amusing little game could’ve embraced the movie license more thoroughly, but fans may still enjoy this 2-4 player game.
I just love the ‘World of Goo’ demo… That Dennis fellow seems like a right good lad, that one.
Also, I’m always a little put off by games made based upon movies… It never seems to work out right. Have you found the same to be true?
Movies based on games are always poo, I can’t think of a single one that was any good.
I think you need to define Poo for the Princess Bride. It’s not a bad game – it’s just really light. Nothing’s really broken, it plas fast, it’s got some strategy in it and replay value. It’s definitely more for kids than adults, and you’ll get the most out of it if you’re a fan, but I’ve played worst games – i.e. broken one’s. This isn’t. It’s just not very deep.
Actually I switched it up a bit there and didn’t clarify…
I have seen some games based on movies or tv that were good… Battlestar looked to be a good game, and I have heard good reviews about it from all my buddies who have played it…
What I meant to say was: I have found movies based on games, on the other hand, are generally always poo. Take doom for example… horrible movie, decent computer game (if not a bit dated now days), and ok board game, if you are into that style.
