Evil Avatar: WALL•E Review

Evil Avatar writes: "I fully enjoyed the movie WALL•E when I saw it in the theater. It was one of Pixar's better movies (then again, aren't they all great?) and I should probably go see it again before it comes out on DVD/Blu-Ray. Nick (bapenguin) probably thought I was weird when I told him I'd be happy to play the game and do a review on it, but I enjoy all things Pixar and Disney even with no children as of yet. I'm pleased to say the game isn't as bad as many movie related games are (like the recent The Incredible Hulk game), but there is just enough problems to possibly keep you away from picking it up.

Turning on the game will immediately take you back to the movie if you've seen it. The song from "Hello, Dolly" called "Put on Your Sunday Clothes" that opens up with, "Out there. There's a world outside of Yonkers. Way out there beyond this hick town, Barnaby. There's a slick town, Barnaby" opens up the game much like the movie as we watch WALL•E making his garbage squares and putting them onto the spires. Right there I started thinking that this game was going to be a lot like the movie and in the end it turned out I was right."

The Good:
+The graphics are pretty good
+The cutscenes are well done even though they aren't dropped directly from the movie
+Same great feeling from the movie transposes well here

The Bad:
-I could have done without the collect-a-thon, luckily most of them are side missions
-The framerate drops at places
-Loose controls, especially in "precision aiming"

The Ugly:
-The Captain doesn't look as nice graphically as he does in the movie
