Ben 10 Omniverse 

 

My mom found Ben 10 Omniverse on the Nintendo 3DS for six dollars and some cents. The home console version was okay, so I was hoping Ben 10 Omniverse on the 3DS would be worth the time. It’s not. I hate to say that because I wanted Ben 10 Omniverse to be an awesome game. Instead I found a boring, repetitive adventure that felt completely pointless.

What do we do in Ben 10 Omniverse on the Nintendo 3DS? We fight guys, wait for more to appear, and then fight them. Then we do a few jumps, and get to fight more guys. At odd points the level ends and we save. Then we get to repeat it in the next level. I was fighting to stay awake when I finally reached a boss level.

The boss levels are the only interesting and cool thing about Ben 10 Omniverse on the 3DS. They have fun patterns that kids will exploit until they finally bring the boss down. The other cool thing is finding new forms for Ben 10. We start with a few, and are forced to change to the new ones when we find them. They are more powerful than Ben, which helps with the pace of this hand held game.

Ben 10 Omniverse does not look that great. All of the repetitive violence is accentuated thanks to the slow fights. The level design is bland - a lot like the graphics. The music is cool in Ben 10 Omniverse. There is a lot of conversation at the start and end of levels. I was never totally clear who these characters were, or why we are fighting. Probably want to take over the universe or something almost as original.

I feel the developer and publisher did not put much effort into Ben 10 Omniverse on the Nintendo 3DS. If they can not be trusted to do it right on the hand helds why would anyone think they can perform well on the home consoles? Ben 10 Omniverse may be one of the reasons D3Publisher has pulled a vanishing act in the video game industry. I noticed some of their other franchises have been picked up by different publishers.

If you see Ben 10 Omniverse in a clearance rack at your local gaming store, pass on it. It won’t be worth the money. The slow, boring pace mixed with lack of creativity will bore even the most passionate Ben 10 fanboy.
