You know that kiddy animation movie? Ooops, I have to be more specific. The one with the gay bee voiced and made by Jerry Seinfeld. Well, I turned my 360 on yesterday, and decided to check the Demos section, and look for any new morsels of GAME that might break me $60. I saw the Bee Movie Game
Demo, and said, "What the heck, why not.
First mistake: I downloaded it.
[Not a game screenshot]
The game is the biggest pile of disgusting megabytes that have ever graced my 13gb
(screw you Microsoft) 360 hard drive. You start off on a highway, and you must steer clear of cars, objects, or anything else that flies in your way. So, my first thought was, "Why doesn't Buzz McBuzzPants fly up high, away from the traffic?"
Oh ya, then they wouldn't make a quick dishonest dollar. Anyway, you have to go up, or down, or left, or right, according to where the arrows direct you. That's about it. There is ONE, count it, ONE, thing that you do different; you press whatever buttons pop up on the screen, God of War style, except more dumb. No confirming 'click' or sign of indentation when you press the button either.
When you think it may be in a cut scene, it might decide to throw a few button combinations at you. Just press or tap the corresponding button. They throw you in a few unlikely situations, such as dodging some kids soccer ball, or trying to outrun a car. He is in front of the car, it is inching up on him, going faster and faster. He keeps flying---he is almost getting hit! DUDE!
Just go UP AND ABOVE the car you incompetent insect!!!! Many scenarios like this will make you angry at the brain incapacity of whoever created this steaming heap of junk.
I have nothing against this movie, or Jerry Seinfeld. In fact, this looks like a very funny movie for those it targets. But the game... the game.
Fly around doing mundane crap, over and over again.
Not terrible, but don't expect Gears of War, ladies and gents. The animations were not too jerky, and the pixels didn't burn my eyes. Better than some movie games, for sure.
Buzz freakin' buzz. The traffic sounds are well... trafficy. Voice acting is okay, but the same repeated "Watch Out!" line and other phrases get very old.
Very low. What? Can you hear me now?? I said VERY LOW!
I give the Bee Movie Game (Demo) a one
Out of five
