    Movie licence + game + movie release date tie-in = garbage game.

    But the movie had "welcome to Paradise" in the trailer, so at least the music is good...
    Knowing games tho, this won't have that song [​IMG]
    I'll try it for the wifi tho...

    Racing game with penguins on surfboards. Not crap, but not worth playing.

    Did anybody in here tried this game and has an opinion based on that or should I just expect the same old stereotype-oppinions about movie-based games?

    Had to sit through the cringe inducing trailer for this, what utter fucking garbage - I really can't imagine kids of any age liking the film or the game for that matter, but maybe I'm giving them too much credit.

    Did you actually play the game? I did. Except for the fact that it's animals racing, it really ain't that bad. Cool tracks and the AI isn't bad either. Looks like it's using the MKDS engine.

    Surprised the hell outta me. I actually kinda like it.....but then again, I like racing.

    Don't give a crap about the movies though.

    This is how it always is here at gbatemp. If it’s an RPG no matter how awful or
    mind-numbingly boring it is, 70% of the ppl will like it. If it’s a movie game 90%
    of them will bash it & most without even playing it. Look at the first few pages
    on the Pirates Of The Carribbean, then after people that actually played it &
    stated it was a good game ppl’s reviews changed.
