    While Pacific Rim hardly has anything original to offer in terms of gameplay, it is more fun than most licensed fare these days. Plus, it's not every day you get to fight with colossal creatures and robots while you're riding to Grandma's house. Give it a look.

    Big robots beating the mess out of big monsters... if there isn't much more to the movie than that, and you don't mind much more to Pacific Rim the game, either, then this might be for you. But if you want something that you can put a little more of yourself into, then you might want to just keep on looking.

    Pacific Rim suffers from bad touch controls and limited gameplay. Definitely a poor tie-in.

    One-note combat and some bland settings combine to make Pacific Rim more miss than hit.

    Pacific Rim had potential, but frustrating combat and mundane gameplay leave much to be desired.

    Yet another movie tie-in game that misses the boat.

    Pacific Rim (yay! another movie tie-in game!) offers little in its gameplay mechanics that it blatantly copies off of Infinity BladePacific Rim (yay! another movie tie-in game!) offers little in its gameplay mechanics that it blatantly copies off of Infinity Blade (literally it is the same exact as Infinity Blade's... Parries, Dodges, Blocks, everything!). The Jaegers don't even use their guns or fists that much! They use SWORDS! I only know of a couple Jaegers use swords which are Gypsy Danger and Striker Eureka which still don't use their swords much in the movie. Pacific Rim is a god awful excuse of a game and is in my top 20 worst apps of all time. Full Review »
