Review: Ben 10: Power Trip!

It’s hero time.The Ben 10 franchise is one of the most popular productions from Cartoon Network, with a fourteen-year run that’s spanned five versions of the TELEVISION program, with the present one being a reboot of the very first show. As one would expect of a multimedia franchise such as this, a litany of computer game adjustments (of varying quality) have been made to accompany the programs, which brings us to Ben 10: Power Trip!. Plainly produced as a tie-in to the motion picture which saw a launching recently, Ben 10: Power Trip! cleanly fits the definition of ‘middling tie-in video game’. That is to say, it is strongly all right, which can be both a great and bad thing.The story begins with Ben, Gwen and their Grandpa Max taking a vacation through Europe, however their trip is rapidly interrupted by the look of Hex, one of Ben’s alien nemeses. Hex in some way disables Ben’s ability to change into different aliens and scatters their DNA samples across the region, hence requiring Ben to recover them so he can stop Hex’s evil strategy. Those of you hoping that Ben 10: Power Journey! would show some of the more mature, intricate storytelling that the TELEVISION shows have been acclaimed for will be left wanting, as the plot in this release feels comparable to a throwaway ‘bottle episode’ without much depth. This isn’t strictly a bad thing, but considering the narrative capacity that a brand-new Ben 10 video game could have, it feels a bit too lacklustre.Read the complete post on
