The game also includes a training level to get your feet wet. The principles are covered in fine detail with a classy voice guiding you along the way. From that point on, there’s never a dull moment in Minority Report. For the most part, multiple levels are creatively woven together and include interesting scenarios spread across the spectrum. The storyline is forgettable but certainly a component in the game. Anderton adds in his thoughts once in a while for extra effect. Other cinematic scenes between gameplay events unfold the story in fine fashion. While repetitive combat remains intact, the game mixes things up with mini-games and interesting foes, such as pseudo-boss battles. Minority Report seamlessly integrates some futuristic devices along the way, such as the jetpack.

This is a blast of a next-gen game in short bursts. It's even more of a thrill to those who have seen the movie. Though you're not likely to finish this one without some kind of help, it's a worthwhile pick up just to toss people into different objects. Now, ever get the urge to toss another human being onto a stove with boiling water on it? Yeah, thought so.

The Fun Factor suffers because of repetitive gameplay and unbalanced weapons and power-ups. Still, the more you love the movie, the more you'll enjoy reliving it in the game.

Sadly, Minority Report does not have the same high-flying thrills as the film version and it definitely does not offer much of a real challenge either. Rent this one if you want a quick weekend game to play.

Minority Report accuse le coup. Un design très sommaire, des phases d'action répétitives au possible, et malgré de bonnes idées comme l'utilisation du jet-pack, il n'y a rien de vraiment nouveau à l'horizon. Dommage de constater qu'un aussi bon film ait donné lieu à un simple beat'em all, soporifique et à l'intérêt plus que limité.

The cutscenes voice acting is so-so, although it doesn’t sound like the real actors from the movie did any of the voice work. Some of the lines coming from the characters contain emotion and feeling, but the script they are reading from seems quite rigid and takes many turns that don’t seem very natural.

Minority Report is a game with a lot of promise, especially since the story’s interesting plot just keeps introducing many different possibilities, yet it just doesn’t come close to being as fresh as the movie was or keeps you hooked with new ideas. Each level just feels like the last level you played, which is an unfortunate aspect that keeps the game from being truly inventive. Still, there are some pretty fun fights in this game that might be worth going through as a weekend rental.

Minority Report is a great movie and definitely a license that could have become a fantastic game. Perhaps the first mistake was trying to find a balance between the movie and doing something new. Treyarch should probably have decided to either do a near-direct translation of the movie or done a wholly different story, one that borrowed the context of the world but not many of the plot elements of the movie. Instead, they did a bit of this and that and the result is a weak story and overall mediocre level design.

Minority Report is a great movie and definitely a license that could have become a fantastic game. Perhaps the first mistake was trying to find a balance between the film and doing something new. Treyarch should probably have decided to either do a near-direct translation of the picture or a wholly different concept all together. Instead, they did a bit of this and a bit of that, and the results are poor plot points and lousy stage design. A mixed-bag, and not worth your hard-earned cash, Minority Report is certainly qualified as a weekend rental, but shouldn't find itself in your collection any time soon.

One avoids making generalities about movie to game conversions, but title after title fails to impress, and it’s hard to avoid the formation of certain prejudices. Everybody Runs falls into line behind countless other film conversions, boasting low production values, an obviously rushed release and highly conventional gameplay that struggles with the controls. Ultimately, there’s little to recommend Everybody Runs except that it’s part of a rarely released genre. Should you highly desire a new brawler, feel free to rent this one and see if you want it as part of your collection, but it doesn’t take a psychic to know most gamers will want to steer clear of this part of the future.

Hur mycket man än gillar filmen är Minority Report inte mycket bättre än mediokert. Jag ville verkligen att spelet skulle hålla samma klass som filmen - ja, nästan i alla fall. Men insåg efter några timmar att spelet är ett i mängden där utvecklarna litat för mycket till det etablerade varumärket utan att egentligen göra något nytt. Jag misstänker att du lär inse samma sak, och rekomenderar därför att hyra Minority Report. Det hade inte ens självaste Tom Cruise i huvudrollen kunnat ändra på.

There’s one positive aspect in the game’s glut of minuses: Having the ability to throw and grab enemies as part of a combo is pleasing for the fingers and does add variety to the gameplay. Still, that’s not enough. Minority Report clearly belongs in the bin of horrendous movie-to-game translations.

With poor graphics, stagnant gameplay and an unevenly told story, Minority Report is prime example of a great license in the toilet. If you see this in stores, use some precognition and avoid it like the plague.

Minority Report's uneven presentation and its incongruence with the spirit of the movie make it just another bad licensed-property video game. It's not entirely devoid of enjoyable moments, but said enjoyment is fleeting and wholly unrelated to the source material. It's just one of those games where the license plays the part of the cart and the game is the horse, and the developer didn't bother to figure out a way to hitch them in the right order before starting work on the game.

Oh, and PlayStation 2 owners got one full day to return this game before their Xbox and GameCube brethren. But really, when compared to the overall debacle, who really cares which version is superior? The report on Minority Report? Remedial action with faint glimmers of fun, wiped out by tedious and insipid gameplay.

If you're someone who needs to masochistically play through the GameCube, Xbox, and PlayStation 2 versions of Minority Report, then be prepared to weep for Nintendo's box of tricks. This is the worst of the three versions, if only because the 25-30 frames-per-second romp slows to five fps and judders along for a few seconds before righting itself. This is usually when eight goons appear at once. In addition, the block button isn't as easy to access on the Nintendo joypad, making combat the most difficult on this console.

Feeling the need to buy as many copies of the game as you can, then find the landfill near the ET cartridges and save Activision a job? Then you'll be pleased to know that the Xbox version of the game is likely to be taking up the least amount of space -- it is superior to the PlayStation 2 and GameCube offerings. But only just. Aside from the textures on the models and scenery looking a teensy bit sharper, there's no slowdown (unlike the GameCube version), and the joypad mapping for the maneuvers is the least haphazard of the three.

Minority Report : Everybody runs est un mauvais jeu. Même si vous êtes fan du film, le jeu ne présente presqu'aucun intérêt. Certes le jeu vaut aujourd'hui moins de 10 €uros sur le marché mais vu les nombreuses sorties en prix éco, vous feriez mieux de jeter votre dévolu sur autre chose. Vous êtes prévenu.

What you're left with is a punch, kick and throw marathon that bears more resemblance to early 90s side scrolling beat 'em ups from Capcom than a 21st Century action adventure on a next generation console. You'd think a publisher with a good reputation like Activision wouldn't want to be associated with such second rate titles - especially one attached to a high profile movie license.

There really isn't much here beyond a half-decent fighting engine and the entertaining rag-doll physics. The level design and flow of the game grows tiring quickly. Perhaps if Minority Report the game had better matched the movie, the final product would be more fun and interesting. Alas, if only Activision could foresee the future...
