Good to know the industry is keeping alive the tradition of mediocre launches across all systems.

Twisted Pixel is a capable developer that has produced magic frequently in the past, and this was a promising concept with obvious opportunity to provide a good time, so this one had all the potential in the world to be great and its failure to execute is especially disappointing.


"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

This was one of the few launch games for the Xbox One I was genuinely interested about, even with the very goofy premise. Though, since it was Twisted Pixel, I figured they could pull it off.

But after reading your review, this really sounds like an incredibly stupid game. The constant spouting of pop culture references sounds similar to my short experience with Ms. Splosion Man... which got old fast. I wonder if Twisted Pixel just got too "ambitious" with the game because it was a launch title and wanted to show off? Maybe they should have just stuck with a safe bet and went with a sequel to one of their other properties.

Anyway, really good review!

Edit: Huh, nevermind, just read that this was originally an Xbox 360 game.

Double edit: Wait, I just read on the LocoCycle site that it's still coming to the 360... in 2014. I... doesn't that just defeat the purpose of enticing players to buy an Xbox One?

Well, even if LocoCycle was an Xbox One exclusive... it still shouldn't entice anyone to buy the system, because it's bad.

Crimson Dragon is another launch title that was originally for Xbox 360, and they both show it. I don't know why Microsoft is doing this. They should be pushing content that showcases the power of the new hardware out of the gate, right?
