Good Games, Bad Movies: Fight Night

Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter

Movies based on video games are notoriously bad.

So bad that everyone can remember a video game movie that has just turned them off of the entire series for them – and sadly I can remember too many. I decided to go into the deep depths of the film vault to bring back a couple of forgotten movies that left a bad taste in every gamer’s mouth, and then pit them against each other. With so many horrible ones out there it was tough to pick the first two, but after some work I think I’ve done it.

Jotun: Valhalla Edition is hands down the most gorgeous game I’ve played this year.

That may seem like hyperbole, but it’s not. The game really is that pretty. The completely hand-drawn visuals make every aspect of it shine with a charming cartoon glow. It’s rare to see a title so crisp and refined that it’s obvious how much effort was put into each moment of it, but Jotun is one of those games. Continue reading “Jotun: Valhalla Edition Review”
