Last Friday we had been at a loss for content for filming, so I plopped my white ass down infront of the office T.V. (literally 80″ tall, we’re ballers). It turns out we got Kung Fu Panda: The Game round these parts, so I figured it was about time someone got started on it.
As I was passed the controller I was almost bored stiff within minutes. You get to walk around as a fat ass panda as Jack Black’s voice tells jokes aimed at 4 year olds… which is probably appropriate, considering thats their target audience and I’m probably at that maturity level anyways. The fat panda has like 2 moves, and both suck… it’s kind of like the first Mortal Kombat before they put all the blood into it, but without Sub-Zero.
Blood aside, as I kept playing fat ass panda drew me in. The game started getting more interesting as fat panda gained more moves. Eventually fat panda was able knock dude’s down with the fat panda ball roll (which in selected parts they do a really kick ass fast paced fat panda ball roll). Fat panda apparently has an eating problem, as he needs fat panda Asian food to live or something… I never understood that part.
The graphics are pretty good for what it is, and the controls are easy enough that I could pick it up and get going within a minute. Oh, when fat panda gets sliced by a fat panda enemy’s sword, there is this really brutal cutting sound. The fat panda game really wasn’t that bad, and we were playing on the Special Olympics setting, so I’m sure more challenging events are waiting for fat panda in the other levels. For children 6 and up, as well as stoners and alcoholics, this game really is decent.
