Watch Us Play… R.I.P.D. The Game. So You Don’t Have To.

The latest entry into the list of movie tie-in games we’re playing for you is R.I.P.D. The Game. Hopefully the movie offers more variety than the game, because there isn’t much on offer here.

R.I.P.D is out now on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC for $US10


  • Why is it that movie tie in games are shit? It’s not like there isn’t enough time. Movies take 12-18 month’s to make.

    • Unless it’s Call of Duty (‘scuse the dead horse!), most AAA games are in development for at least, more than two years.
      I’d also assume the the budget and man-power invested into movie games is significantly less than that of your average AAA title.

      It should be noted that pre-production can considerably extend the time it takes to make a movie.

      Also note that I actually have no idea what I’m talking about and almost everything I’ve said is an assumption.

    • Terrible budgets for developers, both money & time. I worked on a rather popular movie franchise where they gave us 6 months to develop a game on 2 SKUs for a terribly small sum of money. Maximum profit for minimum spend.

    • Because they are not the developers IP, the movie studio forces the developer to put in features and make the game in a way they think puts the movie in a positive light, the budgets are tight to say the least etc basically they aren’t very fun to make, they are very soulless and purely a cash in. So the developer doesn’t care/rushes it amongst their own stuff/is solely a studio that makes this crape on the cheap.

      99% of the time, an exception would be the Wolverine game, shit was much better than the movie.

        • There was one of the original Spiderman games that was good, I think it was 2, never played it on GC but it was good on Playstation 2. Though I have a feeling (if I remember correctly) that was a Spiderman game that was already in development and they just decided to tie it into the movie because timing.
