In this review, I will talk about Los Angeles, The Game. Pretty much just like the movie, this game is pretty bad.
To start off my review, I will talk about how the game completely lacked even some little percentage of the finances that was awarded to this game’s move counterpart for its values of polish and production. Still, the developers Saber Interactive did attempt to recreate at least some huge pieces of set that the film offered, and converted it into a brief, up-for-download FPS affair. Should the game had been a priced 6 to 7 hour adventure, I am seriously not sure whether it would have flied. I still had fun with the game, but really not because it’s good.
Moving further down the review, I will talk about the game play features of the game. The plot was basic and not extra-ordinary at all, the typical OMG! The aliens are going to attack planet Earth we have to stop them! Was really not original at all. It really was a smart move on part of the developers to make the game mimic the story line (most of it anyway) of the movie and to keep it almost about the same time as the movie. Although it means the game is very short by normal standards, there is simply not way the story could’ve been further stretched out longer. Everything about the game is either awful or just average, ironically that is part of the game’s charm. The cut scenes appear to be unintentionally humorous and although most of the cut scenes are not animated, but when the cutscenes are they are so poorly executed that I literally burst out with laughter several times during the game. I also saw the horrible voice acting as another reason to laugh. There appears to be only one type of enemy to really kill in the game, an alien (duh) which looks like a ball of phlegm holding a machine gun. Most effective way to kill these shooting phlegms is a good shot to the head with a sniper rifle.
To finish off my review, I have to reiterate how horrible this game is. The USD 10 investment is still too much to ask if you ask me, but definitely not the worst use of money you could make. If you want to buy this for the laughs, do go ahead and enjoy it.
