Giant Bomb has to do a quicklook of this when it comes out

Fast & Furious Showdown looks amazing(ly bad).

This is a game for HD consoles in 2013 guys.

For GOTY there should be a category called "Rorie's Pick For Worst Movie+Game Combo."

Someone should send them the original Fast & Furious game for PS2. I want to know what that is like.

You can collide with things, so it's better than Big Rigs Over the Road Racing...

... but not by much. A cop gets knocked and clipped through a wall at one point.

I've never vomited so hard.

Why does Activision even publish these movie games that will probably sell a handful of copies? Might as well donate the money to something useful.

Because they don't sell a handful, they sell a ton. It's unfortunate but not everyone goes to sites like GB to see how good a game might be before buying. Many will buy movie games just because it's based on a movie they like. That or mom, dad, grandma, and grandpa will get them for their kids/grandchildren because they've actually heard of the movie and that's more than they can say for any other game that they see in the store.

I am very disappointed that the n2o meter did not say "Nos" instead. Also, I didn't get what everyone was saying until the gameplay started, but mannn that's like a ps2 game.

They only sell a ton? A ton=1000. That's still not a lot.

On the serious side, no they do not. I don't even mean all movie games in general either. I mean the ones like this and Battleship. Ask 10,000 people and I will pay up $100 for each person who has seen the trailer or even heard that these games came out. There's a difference between X-Men Origins Wolverine/Spider-Man and Fast & Furious/Battleship. The former get marketing. The latter don't even get announced. You just see them on a random article titled "Hey, we found a listing that this movie will be a game". Hell, this game STILL hasn't been announced. I can guarantee you this game will get the smallest shelf space possible in stores.

Shame that the greatest film series of our generation can't get a game worth its name.

I know. All the Marvel movie games like Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and Avengers have terrible to mediocre games. Marvel needs their own game division yobro
