Kids say (1):

For a movie tie-in, Megamind: Ultimate Showdown is a pretty decent game. First and foremost, the hi-def graphics look amazing and the animations are incredibly smooth and realistic looking. There's nothing startlingly new about the gameplay: you'll blast lots of enemies, hop through platform-jumping areas, solve puzzling obstacle challenges, and collect energy balls that can be used between levels to upgrade your weapons. It's a fun little addition to the Megamind universe for kids who enjoyed the movie. If you approach the game with that in mind -- as opposed to say, expecting the next big thing in video games -- you probably won't be disappointed.
