Disney Pixar's Wall-E drummed up box office success and big critical acclaim, but the THQ-published game has been struggling at retail.
... all the way back to the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street games for the original Nintendo. ...Look up angry videogame Nerd's commentary on the games on youtube. Back to the future http://uk.youtube.com/watch... Nightmare on Elm Street http://uk.youtube.com/watch... Friday the 13th http://uk.youtube.com/watch... and probably more. When I see a movie-based game and THQ, I run. Fast.
good, maybe it show THQ that they should either spend more time on the title or pay to have more people work on movie-based games
yeah no sh*t man the version of the demo i DLed didnt even had sound in game haha it was weird, menu sound effects and cutscenes worked just not in game O.o
the demo was absolute garbage
I'm not suprised its not selling coz its crap.. as with all other movie based games. Infact i cant name a single movie based game that is actually any good. They seem to bash out games to cash in on the big films and people are just not falling for it no more.
Uh... Goldeneye? Also, the King Kong game was pretty awesome. The LotR games were also pretty good, although short. And apparently Kung Fu Panda was a good children's game. But those are only a few gems amongst a pit of trash. Most movie based games suck, because nobody dares to be creative with them, or spend time actually working on them. They just try to get them out as fast as possible in the hopes that people will eat it up. I'm GLAD the Wall-E game is doing worse than expected. Hopefully it'll send them a signal.
...Escape from Butcher Bay is a HUGE exception.... Otherwise tho, your right. These companies should start taking their videogame counterparts seriously if they really want to make bank.
...why games made in a hurry with very little money invested cost the same $60 as a game like MGS4 that cost millions more and accrued much more hours of work...this goes for all three consoles.
Money hungry companies. Not that there has been a good game movie release along side with its movie release, but Beowulf was like $20 when it came out.
Ron Zook played the demo of this game and it was the biggest sack of crap ever to grace Ron Zooks PS3. 1) PS1 graphics 2) Terrible gameplay 3) Incredibly stupid gameplay (find vending machine part, throw cubes at crap, repeat) 4) Awful awful sound. Worse than SNES sound Overall if Ron Zook ever saw this game on the shelves of any store Ron Zook goes to, Ron Zook would immedeatly throw it on the ground and piss on it. Ron Zook thinks you should too, to stop ALL THESE BAD MOVIE GAMES!
Bob Dole would like his third person mode of speech back. :)
im more in2 ultraviolent (dont u just love that word) games but i can appreciate the more adolescent type of game eg Spyro, Ratchet and Clank but Wall-e was terrible, i liked the film aswell
cars ws the second best selling game of 07?!?!?!?!?!?!?! NO FVCKING WAY!!!
It was 2nd, next to Madden in overall sales. Cars was not horrible, but I think its unusually strong success gave THQ the notion that focusing solely on family- and movie-based games was a proper business model. Guess not. Well, at least when Wall-E hits the bargain bins, 360 achievement wh*res like me will have another easy 1000 points. :)
This game SUCKED!
i think i tried everthing to get passed it
I get frustrated and quit on sucky games, too.
They are about as useful to the gaming community as a pack of wet matches. I downloaded this demo because i absolutely LOVED the movie, and was leary, but still pushed on. I think the Sega Genesis could pull this game off with it's old ass hardware if it was made by Wisdom Tree. What a turd among turds of the most corn-filled kind.
