okay movie

on 1/15/2013

This was purchased for my grandson and this is what he told me to say. He took it to his dad's and he is hooked. Easy setting gives you infinite lives. This game also has two player anytime you just jump in. It offers hours of fun for any player. However, it's little repetitive, and not exactly like the movie. Read More

Review Astro Boy is a futuristic take on the story of Pinocchio. A man's longing for a son drives him to create an artificial life form; in this case, a robot. But this robot is the most sophisticated piece of machinery ever created. So powerful is this robot that it must be used for the good of mankind and not just to be kind to one man. Astro Boy: The Video Game will actually be kind to you as well, since this is a darn good game, much better than expected for a game designed to coincide with the launch of a movie of the same name...Astro Boy: The Video Game for the PSP is an action-platformer. It's well designed and offers plenty of fun. It does tend to get repetitive after a while, but that's the price you pay for an arcade-style game. My advice with such games is to savor them by playing a few levels at a time. Of course, I can't do that since I have to complete the review as soon as possible, but I know I would enjoy this game much better over a couple of weeks rather than a couple of days...As a traditional side-scroller, Astro Boy: The Video Game has just the right amount of new features to keep it from being an old-school clone. The backgrounds display depth and detail, although many of the textures look like sheets that were wrapped around the buildings and platforms. The voiceovers, especially the narrative, is well done. The story follows events in the movie and even goes beyond. The music is mostly upbeat and catchy, perfectly capturing the essence of each situation. There's not a lot of replay value here, just increases in difficulty. Parents should note that although the game has plenty of combat, there is no blood, as the enemies are all robots. While that may be admirable, the robots could at least explode. Instead they just fade away, like the memory of this game will from your mind after it's completed.
