A decent Tie In
Kung Fu Panda is an adventure platform game based off of the kung Fu panda movie, I haven’t seen it so I don’t know how well it lines up, it’s rare to get a complete story in a tie in game, but going into this game knowing absolutely nothing about the movie, I found the games story to be complete with a satisfying ending,
The actual game is pretty good too, not great, but a little above average.
Every level starts out with jack black setting the tone, and then it goes into a pretty good cut scene with great voice acting, and then you get into the actual game.
This is a beat em up God of War style Adventure game, you go around every level and defeat everything standing in your way.
Combat is fairly simple, and thanks to enemies dropping food frequently, you’ll never die in combat… its possible, but you just won’t. All levels feel different and all contain an optional objective. Sadly completing these optional objectives seem to give no reward, so they are as optional as they come.
There are golden coins though that can be spent on health and combat upgrades.
There are 13 levels in this game, and you’ll play as a handful of the different main character about half of these levels contain a boss and aren’t exclusive to Po.
The bosses are super simply and vary from doge to quick time event god of war style, or just straight up combat battle.
Levels are also very short.
Not many will take you longer than 10 15 minutes. You can complete this game easily in 2 to 3 hours.
Combat isn’t impressive, neither is the length, but they aren’t the worst part about this game.
The worst part and also the best part is the platforming.
The 3D platforming sections were easily my favorite part of the games, you’ll be hopping in the clouds, across lily pads, swinging from tree branches, but the platforming is insanely stiff ultimately making it feel unsatisfying.
While I can appreciate it being there and what we got is better than nothing, this game would’ve been even better in my mind with more fluent controls.
And while you’re exploring the levels in Kung Fu panda you can collect these special green coins that unlock multiplayer levels.
The multiplayer isn’t the greatest ever, but the option is there for up to 4 players to play a very cheap version of super smash bros.
While Kung Fu Panda won’t occupy anyone for too long, the time that you do spend with it, is fun and worthwhile for fans of the movie.
For what it is

Oct 14, 2014There isn't much positive to say about this game, unfortunately. I'm a big fan of the movie and was quite disappointed. First, don't be fooledThere isn't much positive to say about this game, unfortunately. I'm a big fan of the movie and was quite disappointed. First, don't be fooled by the multiplayer tag on the game, this is not drop-in coop as you could see in the Lego series for instance, instead MP modes are totally separate from the SP story... which is good by the way, that was the strong point of the game for me, it's pretty faithful in spirit to the movie, and there's some funny panda humor.
On the negative side, there is much more to say: the game is obviously unpolished (lots of glitches, although nothing gamebreaking, but voice-over missing in some places, invisible walls, poor camera behavior, extremely ugly end sequence....). Motion-based controls are a pain, and there is no classic controller option. Don't expect to be able to give this game to a young kid and let him play alone, he will get stuck, as some parts are relatively challenging mostly due to the poor controls. I could go on and on, but one last point to finish: although you learn new Kung Fu moves and can upgrade them, all you actually need are the basic fast/strong attacks and block, as unfortunately the poor controls make everything else too unreliable to be worth bothering with.
In a nutshell: a decent concept faithful to the original movie, but a very poor video game.… Expand
