START THE PARTY! SAVE THE WORLD

Sony
PS3/Move

An open letter to all world domination-crazed noodniks: Give it up. It’s not going to work, no matter how many snowy-white pussies you stroke, or frickin’ laser beams that you fasten to shark heads. Your quest will fail, because somewhere along the line you’re gonna do something really fucking stupid. Like play this game...

Your evil villain for this evening is one Dr Terrible. Wants to rule the world – yada yada yada - evil devices at his beck and call – yada yada yada - you must foil his maleficent machinations – yada yada yada-zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Yep, it’s another minigame compilation, with 20 of the things offering those who enter the fray the chance to get their mugs on the teev via augmented reality before trying to go the old thwarty-thwarty-thwart-thwart on the aforementioned Terrible MD.

As usual, these minigames are shallower than a Glee plot, and about as fun as watching that particular outbreak of grinning meemies on the telly – which, we guess, means some people will really dig this shit.

Things do look pretty good, but control isn’t great as you try to thwack robo-bears, catch mutie-fish, play asteroid pinball and give cavemen a solid tramampolining lesson, with various implements of spriteicide superimposed into your Move-wielding hand. For a game claiming to be party fare – if you have any doubts re-read the title - most of the diversions involve taking turns playing solo, and that ain't right.

Ubisoft got it right on the Wii with the Rabbids mini-game BWAHstravaganzas years ago now, so we’re surprised at how spectacularly meh this release is, as it takes everything good about those bonkers bunnies’ antics and ignores it entirely.

Save the world or go to the mall? Wait up for us, Robin Sparkles!

take me back to the start...
