Gamers will be able to play as the three primary characters in the film - Kick-Ass, Hit Girl, and Big Daddy. The story-driven game draws heavily from the strengths of the intellectual property; an action combat game where the characters finally grow sick of the crime around them, and decide that they will do something about it.

    If only it wasn't so highly priced. [Issue#194, p.103]
  2. Shallow and repetitive gameplay, dull visuals, and overused poor-quality film assets put this game in the failed-superhero category.
  3. 40
    Kick-Ass is a poor beat-'em-up that feels rushed at every turn.
  4. The game never really takes off, relying on very few tricks to support itself from beginning to end.
  5. 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.
  6. The only asses that need kicking in this game are those of the developer responsible for such rubbish.
  7. 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.

The game doesn't live up to the legacy of the film and that is not mentioning the horrible graphics... Expand
