For story, the movie follows the plot of the movie somewhat, but there is a lot of deviation from it to justify a game. But that's okay, because now we can focus on what matters most: Gameplay. Robots is your standard third person action game, where Rodney has a small arsenal of weapons and gadgets to take care of the enemies in his path, as well as some second function to solve puzzles. But with the exception of a few, to get access to these you must find the pieces and bring them to an NPC to have them. In other words, I hope you like fetch quests, because that's what this game spends a lot of time with. There are multiple things Rodney needs to find to progress. This isn't awful, but it can get old towards the end. The combat is pretty fun, but for the most part, all you need is the wrench, but the other weapons can be nifty in a pinch.
The presentation isn't the best. None of the actors from the movie voice their characters, and the stand ins range from passable to awful. And a lot of the characters break character. Few of Rodney's friends from the movie have anything to say to him, and some of the ones who do can be flat out jerks. Heck, Fender, the best character in the movie (due to his actor, the Late and Great Robin Williams) doesn't even get a line of dialogue. It's a shame, there is so much wasted potential here. Though what there is isn't horrible, but it may be a let down to die hard fans of the movie.
Aside from the mentioned action game mode, there is also a racing mode where you can drive one of the pods from the movie. Either to get to the next place in the story, picking up misplaced packages, or racing Piper (who went from spunky yet kindhearted friend to flat and mean race Junkie, in my mind the worst portrayed in the game) It can be fun, yet rather frustrating, the other pods love slamming into you, and five times means you lose and have to restart. It's not horrible, and in one level, you ride the pod around a sewer to find things, but it could have been better with a few more coats of polish.
All the negative things aside, Robots is not a horrible game by any means. There are certainly worse game out there. For their looking for a fun adventure title, Robots should be in your library or on your radar. But if you're a die hard fan of the movie, this game may not provide, since again, the character breaks here are downright insulting. Overall, not horrible, but not great.
