Fresno Bee gaming columnist Rory Appleton writes:
"Yes, most game adaptations are awful. They are terrible on several levels. These films upset fans of the gaming franchise, who feel betrayed, as well as those non-gamers who had the misfortune of wandering into a screening of “Street Fighter: Legend of Chun-Li,” which I know for a fact took a year off of my life when I saw it the day it came out in 2009.
But there’s a sort of morbid fun video game fans take from these films. We know they are going to tank. We want to watch it happen. My friends and I play a game in which the only point is to get really hammered and see who can watch “Bloodrayne: The Third Reich” the longest before weeping for mercy."
