Get Into A Kick Ass Rumble This April
There may never be a greater name for a video game.
Give yourself a treat by checking out the official site for Kick Ass: The Game, which will be headed to the PlayStation Network and - wait for it - the iPhone on April 15. It's not about a superhero accessing impossible powers to take down impossibly strong foes, and it's not really about saving the world. It's about some dude who tossed on a costume one day and got his ass kicked, and then decided others needed their asses kicked. We'll get 3 playable characters (Kick-Ass, Big Daddy and Hit Girl), 8 total missions complete with differing environments and bosses, Facebook compatibility, special moves, multiplayer local co-op, and even a few mini-games. It's one of those downloadable games that could be a guilty pleasure and well worth your time, provided they just nail down the controls and keep the repetition to a minimum. We don't mind simplistic brawlers every now and then, especially when we want something that doesn't require much in the way of focus and attention. Just kick back and beat the tar out of a bunch of jerks, ala Double Dragon or Streets of Rage. Ain't nothin' wrong with that.
We'll definitely want to try Kick Ass: The game when it arrives in April. It may not top our priority list but we can't possibly ignore it. No way.
