G-Force is a video game based on the film of the same name.[1]

Plot[edit]

The game based on the movie, which takes place after the team escapes from the pet store, Juarez and Blaster's new home, and Kip and other FBI agents, gives players the ability to play as Darwin and Mooch to fight against Leonard Saber, the evil billionaire and his robot "household appliances" army.

The PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 versions feature an anaglyph-based stereoscopic 3-D mode, and were packaged with two sets of 3-D glasses.[2]

The game received "mixed or average reviews" on all platforms except the iOS version, according to the review aggregation website Metacritic.[29][30][31][32][33][34][35]

Some liked the 3D mode of most console versions. GamesMaster said of the Xbox 360 version: "Don't underestimate the wow factor of the 3D mode - if this is the future of games, sign us up."[5] IT Reviews, on the other hand, said of the same console version, "The 3D glasses bundled in are a gimmick at best, a one-way trip to a headache at worst." But on the positive side, they also concluded that "G-Force is decent, solid, chipper family entertainment."[36]

GameSpot said of the PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360 versions: "Fun combat and crafty puzzles make this a good companion to the blockbuster movie."[6][8] However, Game Revolution criticised the "repetitive puzzle design [and] bland visuals."[4]
