I dread video games based off movies. They’re cheap cash-ins on major movies so that when kids like the movie, parents are in for some pleading and whining until they shell out the $30 – $60 for a crappy game that the studio wanted to hit shelves as fast as possible so it could coincide with the movie’s release date. I can only think of two good videogames based off movies: “Goldeneye007” and “The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay” so for all of the movie-based video games ever released, there have been two worth buying. There’s a ratio that inspires confidence.
Below you’ll find the trailer for the video game of “Where the Wild Things Are”. I don’t know if this will be the third good video game movie-adaptation but I do know that my excitement for the film is so far ahead of the game that the distance could circle the globe a few hundred times. The trailer may convince you different and I’m not saying it will be a bad game but it does have the advantage of my ridiculously low expectations. However, it does not raise those expectations as much as it confirms them. See where your expectations land after seeing the trailer after the jump.
