  1. Movie games have a generally shady reputation and as a result, rarely get a fair shake with the gaming public. Sadly, Clash of the Titans: The Videogame, while much more polished and ambitious than most movie-based titles, is still unable to buck the trend.
  2. 65
    It isn't great, but it's quite a fun distraction and far better than most other movie-games. [Issue#193, p.95]
  3. As it is usual with movie adaptations, Clash of the Titans is just a decent game, a bit repetitive and without anything remarkable within the multiple games of the genre we have seen in the last months.
  4. 65
    This game is based on the movie and isn't great. The gameplay is most of the time action with some RPG elements in it. The game doesn't look very good and the audio isn't great either. The good part of this game are the many many weapons, but with that everything is said. Fans of the movie will probably like it, but there are many more and better games to get.
  5. Those who like the movie Clash of the Titans and want to play with Perseus will not be completely disappointed, but neither they will hype the game to no end. There are too much gameplay weaknesses to be bothered with, and the graphics are just not good.
  6. Clash of the Titans is not a bad-looking or playing videogame, it's just forgettable, and it has a number of confusing design choices that makes the experience disappointing.
  7. Depending on your expectations, Clash is likely going to disappoint, and even with all its heart and extra features, the core mechanics are slightly dated, which brings the action down a notch.
  8. Much better than the movie, but as a game there are far better options than this generic and derivative hack 'n slash.
  9. Clash of the Titans is a predictable hack-and-slash adventure that is exactly the type of game that gives movie tie-ins a bad reputation.
  10. Yeah, it's bad. [Aug 2010, p.104]
  11. Consistently miserable. [Aug 2010, p.96]
  12. Enemies are flat-out dumb. On more than a dozen occasions we left Perseus (not voiced by Sam Worthington) standing in front of a foe, completely inert. He stood there for so long, not being attacked, that he sheathed his sword and stared back at the dullard in front of him. It took 18 seconds before anything happened. [August 2010 p78]
  13. The negative aspects are rather abundant in Clash of the Titans, so this isn't something recommendable, unless you are really fans of hack n slash and no longer have anything to play.
  14. Battle after battle after battle in an endless stream, all the game through, and the battles aren't even fun. It doesn't take more than an hour for Clash of the Titans to feel horribly repetitive.
  15. The wild inconsistencies in the game will frustrate and confuse you. Every boss fight is a waste of time and will try your patience. In short, this game has 2 hours of content stretched over 12 hours of gameplay.
  16. Anyone with half-an-ounce of skill will be able to plow through the opposition with ease, and the game is packed with useless filler as it is. Clash of the Titans isn't broken, nor completely incompetent, but it sure is boring.
  17. The recent Clash of the Titans film was a mildly entertaining display of special effects. The game contains all of the film's camp but lacks the spectacle of million-dollar CG krakens to help save it.
  18. While this game will take you twenty or more hours to complete, it is so repetitious and clunky you'll swear it was closer to eighty.
  19. God of War set the bar for this genre and Clash of the Titans takes it ten years back.
  20. Clash of the Titans is a repetitive, ugly, bland, boring and poorly narrated hack n' slash game and pales in comparison to God of War 3 and Dante's Inferno. Sure, video games generally make poor movies, but it may well be possible that blockbusters make even worse video games.
  21. I'll give the developers credit for the sub-weapon system, I think it's incredibly large and could have been put to good use in a game that had some interesting combat mechanics to it, but this good idea is completely wasted on another awful movie tie-in game.
  22. The only thing Clash of the Titans manages to prove is that Hollywood blockbusters generally make bad games.
  23. This is certainly, alongside Rogue Warrior and Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust, one of the worst games I've had to play during this generation of consoles.
  24. Clash of the Titans is the worst kind of bad: ill-conceived, poorly executed, and depressingly uninventive. [Oct 2010, p.81]
  25. I could go on to tell you about the terrible graphics, the ho-hum animations, the appalling voice-acting, and Perseus's stupid shoulder shrugs whenever he speaks. But really, this game has taken up enough of my time and yours.
  26. Apply all of the movie tie-in game clichés and stereotypes to Clash of the Titans, and then distance yourself from it. With so many better games out there, don't waste your time.

    Really enjoyable game. Wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised with what I received considering I never paid much. Very good value for money, so good I think it warrants a perfect score. Full Review »

    Biting down on a cyanide tablet is a less painful way to die than this.... This game is probably why Billy Bob Thornton is such an angry manchild...... Full Review »

    Worse than the film, what a car-crash excuse for a game. I would give it a 1 but the price i've just payed for it angers me to the point I must give it a zero. Full Review »
