G-Force - hands-on

What fun would even the most powerful arsenal be without some wild enemies to use it on? Disney has you covered there as well, since the game will include even more appliances-gone-wrong than the movie. Irons will transform into missile-toting death machines, packs of roaming toasters will threaten your every move, and a paper shredder will become a boss-sized menace requiring strategy to survive.

Of course, Disney is looking for a hook to draw in mainstream theater-goers as well, and star power may be just the ticket they're looking for. While they aren't yet giving many specifics on who will actually be in the game, the movie's mix of voice and live action actors includes Nick Cage, Steve Buscemi, Will Arnett, Sam Rockwell, Penélope Cruz, and Tracy Morgan. Even just a handful of names from that list could be enough to draw in some Hollywood-enthusiast gamers.

While G-Force has the familiarity of a game based on a star-studded movie license, it should provide some unique experiences between the wacky weapons, gadgets, and enemies. Though we didn't have the chance to play it ourselves, we were shown levels bristling with interesting level design and exciting combat. We're always wary to get our hopes up over games based on movies – especially kiddie flicks – but even if G-Force isn't trying to blow hardcore gamers away, it has the potential to help pass the time between bouts of more grown-up gaming.

    So i recently started playing this game and was impressed to find out that it isn't as easy as i thought it was gonna be. It's a cute game and it makes you think. I am impressed with it thus far :)

    G-Force stands for "Guinea" (Pig) Force. I saw the trailer for this film and it looks fun. I think with Jerry B. behind this movie, it is sure to be fun! That image was so crystal clear. This game sounds great too, might have to check it out when it is released.

    With a name like "G-Force" I expected more gangstas, and less rodents.

    A movie game with guinea pigs that might not suck? MIRACLE!

    On page 2, why does the second image say that its a Wii screengrab, when there the PS3 face buttons on screen?
