I tried out the demo version of Rocky & Bullwinkle for XBL this weekend. It’s listed as a party game, so I thought it might be something my girlfriend and I might enjoy. We both enjoy playing “Scene It!” and are glad to hear a new version is coming out at the end of the year. So when I saw this as a party game, I figured I would give it a try.
I played it for about 5 minutes… It sucked! Seriously. This is a series of mini games to play, oh should I say microgames. The games are so short, and in some cases, not well designed that I’m just like “WTF”. I game mechanics are overly simplistic and you don’t feel like you’re getting any level of enjoyment out of it. You would think that have a brand like Rocky and Bullwinkle, they would do something a little more creative and interesting. Unfortunately they do not.
After a few minutes, I removed the game from my harddrive. What a shame. It’s 800 points to get the full game. Umm, don’t, really, don’t.
