What's harder? (A) Producing a popular cartoon show for nearly 30 years about a trio of fat-faced high-pitched maladjusted chipmunks and their three whiny rodent girlfriends or (B) Producing a single good video game about them? Apparently, the latter was too much to ask for. Instead of drawing on three decades of creative material, developer Brash Entertainment crapped out an epic turd that features inane musical mini-games where the vermin feign instrument playing while you preoccupy yourself with pushing buttons and trying not to vomit on yourself. (Why penis why?!!)
We know the story too well though: The developer surely had zero budget to make the game, the movie industry is absolutely to blame for the debauchery that's already overdue to go straight to DVD, and surely rushing the game team to bang out anything that resembles squirrels mating to music for a marketing blitz on chilluns to sell this crapola. My only hope is that they spared the production team by leaving out the rolling credits in the ending so they could not be tracked down and killed by people that make the mistake of purchasing this.
This all but reminds me of how good games like Duck Tales were on the NES. Look for those on the Virtual Console and save your money lest you enjoy internal bleeding.
