Clearance Bin Video Game Review: Aqua Teen Hunger Force Zombie Ninja Pro-Am

Rating: M
System: Playstation 2

Welcome to the Clearance Bin Review. Today, we look at the video game Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Zombie Ninja Pro-Am. This will cost you $5 used or $10 new. Being a fan of ATHF, I didn't even know a game of the show came out, but I did see the cover a long time ago. At the time I thought it was part of a photoshop challenge on some website. I didn’t actually know that it existed. Shawn told me to look into it and this is where we are.

So a golf game? Not just any golf game… a killing golf game. Don’t understand? Let me explain. You set up the ball and hit it like every other game. Then you have to run to the ball as the characters from Aqua Teen while fighting off enemies trying to stop you.

I started at the tutorial and was driving balls into windows. This was pretty fun, and I thought maybe this game won't be as bad as I heard. I proceeded to the next level and I’m at a golf course… sigh… it would have been awesome to stay in the neighborhood, but hey it’s golf. So I took a swing, and when I had to chase after my ball I found out that I was very wrong about the level of fun this game will be. The controls are awful, the noises in the game… the boss fights are terrible, and the humor... pretty funny. The humor is the best part of the game.

So if the humor is the best part of the game, then why don’t we just watch the show? I think the developers and creators thought of this. So they put some episodes of the show in the game so you can watch. So this is best part of the game… watching the TV show?

I’m not sure if the creators of this game knew about a game for the Atari 7800 called Ninja Golf. Zombie Ninja Pro-Am is basically that game in 3D with characters from Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

Final Say: I ended up only being able to last 40 minutes and had to turn off my PS2. I can’t recommend getting this game, but if you need to spend $5 to $10 on Aqua Teen, pick up a season of Aqua Teen.
