I have played more than my fair share of games based on CGI films. The majority of these games are aimed at a younger audience, usually lack quality and feel like they have been made on the cheap. There are exceptions, `Toy Story 3' being one, and whilst `Rango' is not the best game ever made, it is perhaps the best generic kids game based on a CGI film yet. You play as the lizard named Rango as he narrates a series of incidents; during these flashbacks you enter platforming based levels. You also need to rely on your trusty six shooter to take out the various enemy critters that block your path. In terms of gameplay `Rango' is straight out of the lazy tie-in book of gaming; platforming, shooting, and the collecting of endless trinkets that mean nothing. At times the game feels like it was made in 1995.

However, to criticise the game too much for its basic gameplay is a disservice. It is easily accessible to younger gamers and I for one like the old school nature of this type of action platformer. There are also other areas that the game shines in. Graphically it is the best kid's tie-in I have played this generation and is closer than most to the CGI it is based on. The levels design may be basic, but the levels are varied and the controls don't fail very often - if you jump, you should land were you think you would. I also liked the world and characters of `Rango', the voice actors are able to do impressive impressions of the various cast members - including a Johnny Depp sound alike. As you work your way through the levels you will come across a mariachi bird band that are always good value.

`Rango' is not a great game, but it is solid fare and this means its stands out amongst other tie-in games. If plan to buy only one generic film tie-in platformer make it `Toy Story 3. However, if you plan to buy two generic film tie-in platformers make the second choice `Rango'.

This game is based on one of Rangos 'tall tales' so has everything from him battling gangs single-handed to flying off to a space ship. One reviewer said it was all over the place - its far from it - it's like listening to a childs imagination!! It's one of the best games I have played in a very long while. The controls are excellent and very easy to pick up and the gameplay is smooth with excellent graphics to top it off. For the trophy hunters its not too hard (I played it all the way through on hard difficulty from the start) there are collectables that you can easily miss so you will have to replay levels once you have completed the story. As its so cheap now go for it and buy it - you wont be sorry - its far better than Toy Story or the new Madagascar 3.

I thoroughly enjoyed this game! It's fun, it's got a sense of humor, the levels are for a movie tie-in actually pretty cool and the game is a nice add-on to the movie. As movie spin-offs go, this one is a pretty superior one. It's not the movie story you play, it's an alternative story around it that adds quite a bit of freshness and entertainment. If you liked Rango, for this price, you or your kdis are going to enjoy it!

My little brother loves the Rango film and he was hooked with this game. He completed it quite quickly but with a lot of continuous play.

My first impression was very much ratchet kind of game, but not like ratchet, it turns out to be really easy to play. No surprise here since its released after a children's movie. Anyway the scenarios, the interactivity of Rango, a super fun character and the constant fights, quite compensate for the rest.
