Rango: The Video Game

Rango: The Video Game

Paramount Digital Entertainment: Action Adventure
In Stores: March 1, 2011 (Xbox 360, Play Station 3, Wii)

In the tradition of Hall of Famers Dory and Terry Funk, JBL and “Outlaw” Ron Bass, a new kind of cowboy hat-wearing grappler steps into the sun. Paramount Digital Entertainment brings the gaming world Rango: The Video Game, inspired by the action-packed film journey of the same name.

High Spots:

  • Unlike The Miz, who’s constantly reminding us that he’s awesome, repetition will not be a problem with Rango. Several of the chameleon sheriff’s adventures take him through environments that are not seen in the actual film.
  • Rango is available on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and the Nintendo Wii. So unless you’re still playing WWE: In Your House for the original Sony Playstation, you should have no problem experiencing this one.
  • Similar to WWE’s demographic, Rango will reach out to gamers of all ages, whether you grew up watching Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper or you are a dedicated member of the Cenation. Rango is rated E10+ for everyone 10 and older.

Hard Bumps:

  • Because Rango’s journey in the game picks up exactly where the movie left off, it stands to reason you might lose a little something if you haven’t seen the film first. This could potentially leave the members of the WWE Universe as clueless about how Rango got to the town of “Dirt” as they are about who the anonymous Raw General Manager is.
  • There is some concern among the gaming community, as games inspired by movies do not have the best track record. Only time will tell whether Rango has what it takes to compete or whether it will be down for the three-count in record time.
