Activision to share Fast & Furious details 'in the coming we

Postby billysastard » 20 Mar 2013, 10:21

is anyone even bothered about this? seriously, an activision movie cash in based on a film that itself is a cash in, i think we all know how great that is likely to turn out.

It could work if it was a download game that played a bit like Pursuit Force.

But it won't, so it won't.

so basically you get to drive the same old cars that's been in every other game of this type for years wrapped up in a film franchise thats past its sell by date. This has gone straight to the top of my 2013 wish list.

Love the first movie, and the last two were ok (as they follow on the plot of the first film). Not sure how a game is going to compete though, there are already so many established arcade racing games out there, its going to have to be quite special to stand a chance and for whatever reason I just doubt it will be somehow.

Games based on Film and TV are always bad. Look at Walking Dead Survival Instinct

Are we really at a point where we decide a game is bad even before any video based on who publishes it?

yes, i think we are when it comes to activision and licensed tv / movie games.

they release their latest tie in (or should that be cash in) this week, here is what kotaku had to say about it....

There are so many superior alternatives: If you've got a hankering to kill some zombies in a southern setting, play Left 4 Dead 2. If you love The Walking Dead and want to spend more time in that world, play Telltale's wonderful adventure game from last year. And if you want to play a tense, terrifying first-person zombie game that relies on smarts and sneaking as much as on firepower (and you own a Wii U), play ZombiU.

I can think of no compelling reason why anyone should play this game. Ugly, flat, boring, aggravating and often broken, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is the purest form of video game garbage. It's utterly unworthy of your time and money.

or, how about their last one?

Eventually what 007 Legends offered me wasn't homage or tribute, but rather existential horror. As I stood high on my sniper perch above my enemies-which all looked the same (they were always the same, endless horde of similar faces)—I noticed something unsettling. Enemies would scatter like ants to the exact spots as those before them, eventually creating large mountains of human flesh that, bafflingly, more people braved. Could they not see what was happening around them? Or did the game's code bind them to a destiny they could not prevent? One by one I saw my enemies practically line up for their turn, acting like modern sacrifices—not to a Mayan god, but to corporate greed.

It was like they begged, "Free me from my mortal coil!" And I did, for if I lived in this meaningless world, I'd want to die too.

That's your view and there is a an element of truth re most movie tie ins however I will always wait to see the nuts of a game before making judgements, for example while most were s**t I actually enjoyed Bloodstone.

ha, yes, the exception that proves the rule ;)

surely its better though to expect it will be utter trash and get a nice surprise if it isnt than to expect something good and end up with an aliens:cm (not activision but high in the wtf did i just buy stakes).

Mostly yes, but not always. I enjoyed the recent Tron game, and the Batman AA games are pretty decent. Terminator Salvation was pretty good fun for a few hours (although that's how long the game actually lasts), and Terminator 3 The Redemption was also pretty good. Jurassic Park Trespasser was also really good as was the Snes version of Jurassic Park. There are others I could mention too. Movie games are mostly crap but occasionally a decent one will come out.
