Aug 23, 2010While on of the better movie adaptations, it's a decent beat 'em up, it's lacks a certain spark, with boring locations and some awkward, unresponsive motion interludes. Anyone seeing this cheap and craving a beat 'em up could go worse, but as it stands, it's a decent if uninspiring game.… Expand
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 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
