UGLY AMERICANS: APOCALYPSEGEDDON

Comedy Central Games



With no foreknowledge as to what the fuck Ugly Americans was, a quick look had us deciding it revolved around some sort of government department staffed by a cop, a devil woman, a wizard and just a regular guy... with a sad koalabloke looking on.

Upon doing some research, we learned that Ugly Americans revolves around some sort of government department staffed by a cop, a devil woman, a wizard and just a regular guy... with a sad koalabloke looking on.

It’s based upon an adult-skewed Comedy Central animated series that’s somehow ducked our cartoony-centric peepers – until now. The humour’s certainly not for children, which is ironic as they’re the ones that’d lap up the wilfully puerile nature of it all, and have it permeating throughout playgrounds quicker than nits. Mind you, with the state of many parents nowadays, they probably buy the nippers the DVDs before getting back to tongue-pashing their Vicodin.

Visually akin to an episode of the TV show, game-wise we’re talking a kinda cross between Double Dragon and Robotron – the side scrolling killingness of the former meeting the relentless twin-stick shootiness of the latter.

Whilst you can brave it alone, you’ll die lots – it’s frustration on an icy pole stick. Get four players assailing the cavalcade of freaky (local or online) though and you’ll be closer to cruisetational, primal nirvana, going the smackdown on all manner of weird shit like manbirds, demon punks, zombies (yawn) and big-boned groupies.

Weapons are many, and subject to RPG-like power-upping so as to give them more grip. Your initial advantage depends upon which character you choose – all of which are voiced by the original actors, which is kinda neat-o and stuff.

Ultimately, this is fan service strangers beware.

Jebus, we just read the koalabloke’s history. That’s some seriously messed-up caca...

take me back to the start...
