    Kick-Ass is a poor beat-'em-up that feels rushed at every turn.
  2. Shallow and repetitive gameplay, dull visuals, and overused poor-quality film assets put this game in the failed-superhero category.

    Kick-Ass has adequate character models and the prerequisite references to the source material, but bears none of the enthusiasm of its namesake. Just when you think that movie-based games are finally making some headway, a game like Kick-Ass comes along to obliterate that notion and to show you how low some people will sink to make a buck.
  4. The game never really takes off, relying on very few tricks to support itself from beginning to end.
  5. The only asses that need kicking in this game are those of the developer responsible for such rubbish.
  6. Kick-Ass could be a guilty pleasure for everyone if it weren't for the frustrating and repetitive gameplay, weak incentives provided for replay-value, and of course the fifteen-dollar price point.
  7. Compared to the quality of other PSN titles, Kick-Ass does nothing to stand out. An array of unforgivable technical issues mar what is already a needlessly boring and repetitious beat'em-up.
  8. Overall there is nothing extraordinary about Kick-Ass: The Movie - The Game. Audio wasn't anything noteworthy, graphics are borderline mediocre, the game controls like a puppet, and the gameplay in general is about as smooth as fine-grit sandpaper.

    This game is only a little bit fun if you have a buddy, but still, it's not a buy. No way. The game doesn't live up to the legacy of the film and that is not mentioning the horrible graphics... Full Review »
