I must admit that neither I or my children have had the chance to see the movie Rango yet, but that doesn't mean they were not overly excited to try out the new Rango
video game for Wii. I have to say this review is a little harder for me since I'm not already familiar with the characters and my kids really haven't given up the game to me..still!
Of course you start off playing as Rango the sheriff of dirt town and from what I have read ( since I haven't seen the movie) the game does not however follow the plot of the movie, which sometime is a good thing. Specially when you have yet to see the movie ;) Yet the game does feature scenes inspired by the movie itself.
Set in the gritty, Wild West town of Dirt and filled with wily and whimsical characters, Rango The Video game invites players to continue on Rango’s wild journey with all new tall tales, brimming with intense action and outlandish scenarios inspired by the movie.
Rango’s fondness for telling tall tales allowed us to push the limits in creating new adventures for players of all ages to enjoy, said Thomas Lesinski, President of Paramount Digital Entertainment. We worked closely with the Rango filmmaking team on a unique game storyline and integrating stunning visuals from the film to create a game that delivers a great variety of game play that has already impressed the critics.
Rango The Video game lets players explore a wide variety of environments featured within and beyond the film and challenges them to achieve near-impossible feats as they work to uncover a plot that threatens the entire population of Dirt. Along the way, players will encounter Zombie rodents, Alien spaceships and even an 8-bit shootout inside an arcade machine.
This family-friendly title captures the spirit and humor of the movie, with an extended storyline that goes beyond the vivid world of Dirt.
Some of the features include:
Rango’s All New Tall Tales – Play as the quick-thinking chameleon Rango, the best Sheriff the town of Dirt has ever known, and explore a variety of new missions and environments that expand beyond those seen in the film.
Ride Roadrunners and Desert Bats – Speed through the desert atop these unconventional chariots as players engage in extraordinary acrobatic gun play and more.
Interact with the Dirtonians – From a group of mariachi birds that provide color commentary to a gang of wild rabbits, the townsfolk of Dirt will provide no shortage of fun and entertainment.
Wild West Action and Adventure – Face hordes of hostile zombie rodents as you show
