Rush: A Disney/Pixar Adventure

I'm quite behind in blogging the games I've been playing. Rush: A Disney/Pixar Adventure is one I started months ago. I've been playing it in between bigger titles. It's also on my list of short games to play. I enjoy the casual game now and then and this is a pretty good one, especially if your a fan of Pixar movies.

I'm playing the game on Xbox One as part of Game Pass. It's set up as an amusement park with six worlds that have 3 adventures each (except Finding Nemo which has 2). The movies are: Finding Nemo, Ratatouille, Incredibles, Toy Story, Up! and Cars. You play as your own created character but as you go you unlock a few other characters you can play as. You can also call characters to help you unlock special areas within the adventures.

Most of the adventures follow a simple formula: run, jump, swim or climb until you get to a hub area, solve a puzzle then repeat. Cars and Finding Nemo are a little different because you continuously swim or drive through those adventures.

I found the game surprisingly fun. I managed to complete all 17 adventures and unlock almost every character and concept art piece. I'm working thorough the acheivements now and have to play as the unlocked characters in each area. I also have to unlock some more of the "buddy areas". These are the spots in an adventure where you can call a character to help you access a new area.

My only issue has been that occasionally the game crashes. Not very often, though. Sometimes it just freezes, and once I had an AI buddy get stuck and couldn't complete an adventure. It all worked itself out in the end though. Oh yeah, and you can play co-op, but i didn't.

One other thing I'm annoyed at, an achievement for watching the credits without skipping. I watched credits to a game once. It lasted over 45 minutes. There's no way I'm sitting through that. I like credits in movies. Those are 5 to 10 minutes max. But, I'm trying to find some moment where I can leave the game running. However, I don't think I'll find the time for that because no one's got time for that.

Ha ha that achievement is hilarious.

Worst achievment ever. Nobody should do that. Credits are way, way, way too long for games.

Huh, that's strange.  I don't remember this game, and I usually try to keep up with the Disney games.  Speaking of which, right now I'm playing Kingdom Hearts 3.  I haven't talked about it, though, because I know people don't like spoilers about games like that.

It's pretty well done. It used to be a Kinect game for Xbox 360 but was then remastered for Xbox One. I totally didn't use a Kinect device. It works fine with a controller. The developer is Asobo. They did full games for various Pixar movies like Wall-E (I still want to play that), Ratatouie, UP and Toy Story 3. WIth the knowledge that Asobo does a good job, I'm going to have to play all those games at some point.

Oh it was a Kinect game?  No wonder why I hadn't heard of it.

Do you know for sure these credits are that long? I've definitely seen shorter credits in games. comparable to movies. Remember when they intentionally padded the VFX artists for Iron Man 3?

Well, for this game, which isn't a huge game, I expected shorter credits but that one experience with a bigger game poisoned me, and I didn't trust it past five minutes or so. There's no way to tell how much time your in for with these games. I couldn't fast forward either, which would've helped. 

I don't remember that Iron Man 3 thing. I wonder why they did that.

Iron Man 3 came out right after Avengers, I think, and everyone was starting to get used to staying after the credits. I think they just did it as a troll. I don't even remember the after-credits for Iron Man 3.
