Portable animals with down syndrome

Jan 02 // Papa Niero    @destructoid

Utter boredom does not describe the faces of the furry protagonists in Over The Hedge: Hammy Goes Nuts. Their depression and jaggy edges seem clinically serious, as if they are about to burst into tears and slit their wrists at any second.

Screen after screen you'll find a sad squirrel or racoon scratching himself or lifting objects as half-asleep enemies chase him. (Yawn) It's a shame, because the animated cartoon was widely acclaimed by chilluns and dorm-room stoners everywhere. The washed-out colors also seem completely inconsistent with the film's art direction.

The game appears to be nothing special, but its brand recognition will surely drive some sales nevertheless. The marketing experiment that can't fail hits the shelves on January 12th for the DS, PSP, and GBA. Six new preview screens of animals that need a hug are attached.
