There was one thought on my mind as I played Temple Run: Oz. And it certainly wasn't, "wow, this is fun!"
No. I wondered if movie producers now make sure to throw in a scene where the main character runs away from something so that they'll be able to justify a Temple Run spin-off. Or rip-off.
And then I watched the trailer for Oz the Great and Powerful. Lo and behold, there's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it clip of James Franco and Mila Kunis running along a narrow stone bridge. It's like a live action Temple Run movie.
Disney continues the trend of crap movie games with this poorly made and cynically produced retread of a game we're all very sick of
