TDK Media Interactive have always done good or bad
games. There latest entry, No Rules: Get Phat is one
of the bad games. No Rules: Get Phat is one of the
games that tries to make itself be fun and
entertaining to play by bringing new elements to its
somewhat " action " genre. But in the end it proves
that it is nothing more than a failure than any real
No Rules starts off like this. Ordinary ghetto boy,
One Eyed Jack is sitting down watching T.V. Then when
getting ready to watch his favorie show: Snoop Nasty,
an interruption happens and it looks as an alien
takes over the screen. The Alien says that they are
from planet Punk Azz ( nice one ) and that we better
move because they are here to get phat ( or cool ).
Then as One Eyed Jack you must ride his skateboard
and destroy everything in your corner especially
little critters from the Planet Punk Azz.
The controls are a bit frustrated and can be the
cause of you losing a lot of times. You can not let
this happen. Well if your game hot bad control, it
will happen. You use the Directional Key Pad to move
your character back and forth and this will make you
move on to the next area. The A button will make you
jump and at times you can grind with this if you want
and of course the B button will make you use your
weapon; a slingshot. What would have been a great
feature would have been if you could've jumped or
moved while also firing your slingshot. In my opinion
this could have made the controls better and more
accessible. This game could have also have taken
advantage of the Game Boy Advance's 2 extra buttons.
Up to this point I haven't seen them do anything,
because they don't do anything.
The levels themselves are also badly done. Now the
main thing will be to jump over a part of your
school, advance to a greater part of the level, hit
the checkpoint, and then reach the end of the level.
Also the level premise is also quite simple and very
linear. Now just jump over your enemies, then hit
them, then jump over part 1 of building, then part 2,
then part 3. Next thing to, destroy 5 more aliens.
The bosses are also some of the lamest bosses in
gaming history. Now you must stop the enemy's from
getting phat by being a DJ type of guy. You just
press the right buttons and then figure out how you
can defeat the boss. I thought bosses were too be the
leaders of the level and the hardest part of the
level, but this game makes the bosses act as if you
were a dog playing Dance Dance Revolution!
This game has around 5 worlds and it features some
bosses. Some extra sidequests you can do in the game
will be too collect records. Once you collect all the
records in a level, you will get a new move. This is
definitely a task that sounds easy, but is freaking
hard. The game is also password sensitive. Now once
you pass a level, you will get a password so next
time playing you will start where you last left off.
Where this game really outdoes itself is in graphics
and even sound. The in-game graphics like character
and level models are alright, but where this game
gets its points are in its short cutscene scenes.
These cutscenes are played out like a comic book and
the art in them is pretty good. The sound is also
good because its music features uproaring beats that
are sure to put a smile on many.
The game comes packed with an extra bonus. A mini
figure skateboard. To say the truth this mini
skateboard actually gives you more fun than this game
does and it might even be better than the game
itself. If I were TDK Media Interactive I'd rather
put in a real skateboard so everybody can buy this game.
Overall if your looking for a really fun game that
gives you a good gaming experience then please look
away. But if you are looking for a mini skateboard
with " some " game then you should definitely play this game.
Overall: 5 out of 10
