    It is difficult to find a movie-based game that is really good, and Rango almost achieves it. It doesn't bring anything especially new, but overall offers a varied and entertaining adventure.

    If you have either a PS3 or Xbox 360, stick with those consoles for a more enjoyable Rango experience. If you only have a Wii, though, rent this game and put the rest of the money toward something more substantial.

    Tedium for adults and generic distraction for the wee ones. [May 2011, p.103]

    The game will last most players fewer than three or four hours, which may indeed be an estimate on the high side.

    The background graphics and lighting effects can be impressive--though such work is wasted on mediocre gameplay. [April 2011, p.86]

    Too basic to be much fun. [Apr 2011, p.74]

    Generally, Rango is a much more disappointing game than it is actually bad. It's perfectly functional, and maybe even rarely enjoyable, but it fails to truly capitalize on the license and does little to differentiate itself from pretty much any other 3D platformer that's come before it.

    It is a shame that Rango on the Wii cuts corners and, worst of all, is over all too quickly.
