This One's Not Getting Off The Hook!

  • Oct 6, 2002
Rating:

The movie "Antz" was a computer generated movie from Dreamworks made for adults and stared such big names as Woody Allen and Gene Hackman in it. That was four years ago in 1998, this is 2002 soon to be 2003 and the movie is forgotten by the general public and remains somewhat of a favorite to a select number of people, most of which are adults. I'm not sure who decided to green light this project, but I would have taken in these factors before deciding to go along with the project:

1. Is the franchise still proffetable?
2. Can you market a go kart game off a movie made for adults?
3. If you're planning on making this for kids is "Antz" something that kids will really want?
4. Is there enough intrest in this movie to release a game and still make it profitable?
5. If there is only a minimal intrest in the game can you still sell it ...?

Sadly I think the no's out number the yes's this time. What we have in the end is kids game based off an adult movie, which is not highly profitable anymore, coming out on a system made for kids at a {small} price! In other words I don't think this title will even sell all it's invantory in stock...I don't even think it will pass the 2,000 units mark. Neglecting all the things this game had going against it in the first place I must also add that the game just simply isn't any fun to play. We've seen better kart games before, the graphics have been better, they've played better, and this game can be beaten in an hour.

Now in my XBox review of the game I recommended it because it was one of the few kids games on the system, however the PS2 version is not getting off the hook so easily. Because unlike the XBox the PS2 DOES have plently of kid games for the system, and plently of PSX games too that are much better then this! With the PS2 you have a lot more choices when it comes to kid games then you do with XBox. "Stuart Little 2," "Any of the Disney games," "Yu-Gi-Oh!," and many more! So I recomend that PS2 parents just stick with one of those games and skip this one all together.
