A perfect example of what video games shouldn't be
Where to start the gameplay had so many glitches doors would not open which would be the only way to advance so you would have to start the mission all over with. The main charecter says the most stupidest one liners possible and the graphics look like video games from 15 years ago a truly painfull experience. I'm even considering throwing the game in the trash not even bothering to trade it in at gamestop so one poor soul won't have to play this horrible game.
Worst Game in History
This game is absolutely the worst game ive ever played. From its cheesy fighting combos to its less appealing graphics it offers entertainment amounting to about 5 minutes worth. I bought the game for $20 and no less than, and without exaggeration, 15 minutes from purchase i was back at the store asking for a refund. The game doesnt even follow the story line of the movie, it jumps around and speeds past the best parts of the movie. In a good sense for me but bad for those who want a challenge, i got around 600 gamerscore in the 15 minutes i played it which was half of the total achievements. Trust me dont waste your gas on picking this game up just having to drive back and get your refund.
jumper is #1
hey kids want to buy the best game ever here you are. Jumper that's all i can say is jumper. I played all last night and all through the morning. If Your a hardcore gamer or a not so hardcore gamer jumper covers it all. The movie one word incredible and the game just takes the movie only one step higher. Should you really buy movie games NO but jumper is the game of a lifetime. It's long but not too long it's just the right amount of length.Sounds and graphics if I talk of them I think I'll have some tears of joy. One word of those two things well there is no words that can start to describe. Hayden Christensen brings voice overs to a completley new level.If there is anywhere out there where i can download the music from tell me the music is AMAZING. Game of the year GTA 4 I dont think so it's JUMPER. YES
shouldn't even be on the 360
The game is supposed to show the story of Griffin, one of the characters of the movie Jumper, and his quest to get revenge for the deaths of his parents. Surprisingly, somehow the creators of this piece of junk got Jamie Bell, the actor who played Griffin in the movie, to voice-act his character, not that it mattered. Gameplay/Challenge: I've seen harder games on an NES. Gameplay consists of fighting hoards of the same enemy over and over again, except in different levels, the enemies are re-textured to look different, even though they do the same thing again and again. Graphics/Animation: When I first rented this game to try it, I was thinking that the game would have great graphics, based off of the trailer and the fact that it's a 360 game, and was I wrong. This game has the worst graphics I've ever seen in a game. I've seen much better graphics in early sega saturn/PS1 games. Maps-repeated, enemies-same old enemies retextured in each level, Griffin-horrible, he doesn't even touch the ground, just floats there. Length: It's possible to clear this game in a good 30 minutes, if it doesn't glitch and the player can stomach the horrible gameplay. Storyline: this game has a decent storyline, tying into the movie's storyline, too bad the gameplay kills the story Controls: the controls are extremely touchy. Trying to move is like trying to stop a tornado, and jumping controls consist of a cross-hair on the ground. Interface: blah, case closed. Sound: the voice-acting sucks, only 1 person did a voice-over for his character: Jamie Bell (Griffin). Other than that, the voices are horrible. Overall game review: 1 out of 10. I would NOT recommend this game to anyone at all, not even if I was paid. This game is horrible; plain, flat-out horrible
OH MY GOD...
Jumper Griffin's Story is, without a doubt in my mind, the WORST movie based game to have ever come out. It's just so terrible, where to begin? Graphics? Fantastic...if this was the Dreamcast. But last i checked this game is for the 360. Sound? Your regular generic music that continually loops while you play. Yeah, pretty irratating. Oh! and let's not forget the voice acting! You get such groundbreaking classic lines as "You guys are toast, and i eat toast for breakfast!" and "Jerk squad at 12 o'clock!" Length? I beat the game the 1st time (Yes, i beat the game twice ONLY to get the achievement that's needed for it) in about 2 1/2 hours. My 2nd time beating it? 45 minutes! The only positives to this atrocity of a game are the controls. Absolutely no complaints, they worked fine and are easy to learn, and the other positive are the EASIEST ACHIEVEMENT POINTS...EVER. People, i'm not kidding when i say that i had racked up 450 points on the 1st level. 450 points! Not to mention that the 1st level is only about 15 minutes tops! If you want to pick up your gamerscore a VERY easy and VERY fast 1000 points then by all means run to your local gamestop and pick this up. Otherwise do yourself the favor and avoid what is surely one of the very worst 360 games out and one of the very worst license games to have ever come out.
Worst 360 game out there...
Where do I begin? I guess I can start off by firmly saying that this is the worst X360 game I have ever played. I’ll get some quick points out of the way first. There’s not much to the audio in this game. There’s simple music, lackluster sound effects and Jamie Bell does lend his voice for the game, though he wasn’t given much to do. So what I’m basically saying is that the audio is the best part of the game. Can you see where this review is heading already? The controls are junk and camera is terrible. I will say that the only real decent part of this game is the fighting system. Each face button corresponds to a different direction, but they never really make any use of it besides the basic attacks. So why don’t we talk about the graphics now, I mean this is the HD-era so I bet you think this game is a real looker. I’m sorry to disappoint, but it looks absolutely pathetic graphically and wouldn’t even be able to cut it on the last-gen systems. All the enemies are basically the same with either a darker skin tone or a female and the world is extremely bland, but that’s not the worst part. There is draw-in inside rooms and in some cases the floor doesn’t even load. There really is nothing better than beating down on some generic dude while you’re both walking on air. That last statement was sarcastic if you couldn’t tell. Besides being a graphical piece of fecal matter, there’s still more! This game is short, really short. I don’t think I’ve played a single-player game this short since the days of the NES. I’ve heard people say 2-3 hours is what it would take to beat the game. I was able to go through it in just over an hour. That’s not acceptable; the game is shorter than the movie and makes the movie look like an Oscar winner in comparison. I’ve never seen a game so poorly put together, and above all I can’t believe that they have the balls to charge full price for it. The game isn’t worth the price of a movie ticket; it’s not even worth the $5 it cost to buy the Burger King games. The BK games look like Bioshock in comparison and that’s being kind. Honestly, don’t buy this game…don’t rent it...don’t play it. Are you an achievement w***e looking for your next fix? It’s true that you can get some very easy points and get them quick…but know this, with each achievement you unlock…you lose another piece of your soul. Trust me on that, my soul is crying his eyes out and I don’t know if he will ever be the same again. Also playing this game has helped me understand the movie. I can see why Sam Jackson wants to kill all the jumpers. If there were no jumpers then there would be no game and that’s the kind of world I would want to live in. Final Score: F
I hated every second I played this game. It was the worst XBOX 360 game I ever played.
But there is an upside.
If you are an achievement hunter this game is for you...to play only once. This game is an EASY 1000 points. You can play through one time in a couple hours and get all the achievements.
This game is not that good. Graphics are actually pretty good. The only reason I would suggest people rent or buy this game to see what happens when you jump people to another place after defeating them. The levels are too dark to see anything.
This game isnt the greatest game uh... I wouldnt reccomend it for Hardcore gamers. try making a sequel with guns and a little more levels
