Rango Nintendo DS/Playstation 3/Xbox 360/Wii

This surprisingly fun and sprightly adventure picks up where the film leaves off, sending the chameleon Rango after Bad Bill and a bunch of radioactive rocks. Why Rango wants to collect rocks that make animals disappear is not entirely clear, but along the way Rango is a traditional jump/attack/climb game, with decent graphics and clean controls.

Rango separates itself most in its music and sense of humor. The jokes are thrown out there at odd moments and feel more surprising and much funnier for it. Are they hilarious? Not really. But they do add personality and energy to what could otherwise feel like nothing more than a commercial. The music, while repetitive, sets the tone. A plucky, winkingly clichéd banjo accompanies Rango on his journey, and lends the game some of its quirky charm.

Clearly, judging from the difficulty level, this is a game aimed at children, and unlike the best animated films, Rango doesn’t make references intended to keep the adults in the crowd entertained as well. For those kids, or less serious gamers, Rango is an above-average adventure game. (www.ea.com/games/rango)

The action is set in and around the frontier town of Dirt, where a strong-willed farmer named Beans needs help restoring the water supply and rescuing her kidnapped father.

Nintendo DS is good but 3DS is even better when it comes to smooth gaming. Its setup is not too complicated either. I might say this that you should use the Nintendo 3DS as well.
