Most people have heard of the Burger King video games. I have decided to help you choose which ones to buy and which ones not to bother making eye contact with. All three look like crap at first glance, but there were quite surprising results.
“Pocket Bike Racer” was my most anticipated of the three. A good racing game is never going to fail the gamer. With that statement in mind, “Pocket Bike Racer” is a waste of time. It has very cool retro music in the menus, but the rest of the sounds become some of the most annoying sounds since “Yoshi’s Story” for the Nintendo 64. Even though it is annoying, there is nothing wrong with the quality. The graphics are okay for the Xbox 360. The colors are very smooth and vibrant.
The main idea of the game is simple: race your pocket bike to win the race and run through cones to gain items. The more cones you run through without using an item, the better of an item you are allowed to use. Once the item is used, your meter starts all over again.
It is that simple.
There are different characters and bikes to choose from, allowing for greater variety. There are only four different tracks and four different types of gameplay – they all suck. This game isn’t fun at all. I give it a 4/10.
“Sneak King” looked to be long, boring, repetitive and lacking in presentation. I was right. This game looks alright graphic wise, but the sounds are always the same. The people you are sneaking up on and feeding have their own “Sims”-esque language of their own. It is quite annoying. The music and the ambient sounds were of a pretty good quality. There are a good amount of glitches that are also in this game. That’s expected quality from a five dollar game.
The point of the game is to collect missions of feeding people. Each mission is essentially the same thing over and over again-feed the people that are hungry. That is the summary of all the missions. It is quite repetitive and frustrating because it becomes very boring.
The most exciting thing within the game is the funny dance that the King does when you feed them just right. It is also difficult to get a good grade on the missions. Speed is key in this slow-paced game. I give this game a 5/10.
“Big Bumpin'” looked to be the runt of the litter. It turned out to be the best. It had clean graphics. Things were easily recognizable, and the colors looked great. The sound of the bumper cars bashing each other was also very good. The music, to my surprise, was quite fitting and entertaining compared to the rest of the games. It added to the fun.
This game has multiple game types to choose that involve four players, making it great for parties. The hockey game is the most addicting game of all the varieties. This game had nothing truly wrong with it. I give it a 6/10.
All these games were highly mediocre. The only game that should be bought out of this trio is “Big Bumpin'” because it is the best party game. The rest is a waste of ten bucks. The bottom line: The Burger King video games for Xbox 360: 5/10.
