Old School Games and Atlus took a big chance in coming out with R.I.P.D. The Game. Especially, since this isn’t usual Atlus type of game to do. I may be wrong but I don’t recall them ever doing a licensing deal like this before so it was interesting for me to see if they could pull off a good cooperative experience.
Well, as I downloaded the game I read up on all these great features and it got me ready to play. I called up my friend and hooked him up with a code which was provided by Atlus for this review. We was ready cause that’s what we like to do co-op gameplay and waves such as Gears Of War and Borderlands 2.
“R.I.P.D.: The Game”features:
- Film Authenticity - Working directly with Universal, Old School received ongoing access to the movie materials so that players could experience a faithful adaptation of the unique world of R.I.P.D., including environments, enemies, weaponry, effects and humor from the film.
- Partner with Your Friends Online - Two-player online co-op allows wannabe gunslingers to use teamwork as they battle their way through the game. Your enemies won’t have a chance against the right team strategy.
- Over-the-Top Action -Gunslingers will blast, impale, explode, and arrest enemies just as the heroes do in the film.
- Unique In-Game Betting System - Co-op partners can put their in-game currency where their mouth is with a new feature that allows them to bet on who’s a better R.I.P.D. officer. Measured by which player can capture the most enemies, who can stay standing the longest, and other action-packed challenges, the virtual betting system allows players to always keep the stakes high.
- Challenges Galore - Being an R.I.P.D. officer doesn’t mean blasting enemies all the time. Random challenges will appear during each stage to allow players to test their mettle for extra gold pieces.
Looking at the features you would think the game would be good but it isn’t. Simply being every aspect of the game seems rushed from the animations to the guns and consumables. This is just a horrible thing cause now gamers have another reason to hate movie licencing in games. There is no story, no ranks, no personality to the characters, and no reason to want to keep playing. Unless you are very open and a fan of the movie you will not be satisfied and I’m doubtful on that.
Short And Simple…
”Could Of Been So Much Better!”
I really had high hopes and spend a lot of time with this game to give it a chance but this game in my opinion is just a simply rushed product that could have been so much better.
PSN/PS3 Version was used for review.
