Rat Race isn't all that funny

Justin McElroy

It's just what we were afraid of. You've been lied to. When you learned of upcoming PSN title Rat Race, you were told it was an episodic comedy/adventure game. The truth, as you can see in this clip and the others after the jump, is that it is an episodic adventure game that contains objects that are supposed to be jokes. Honestly, if there's any justice it won't even be episodic. It'll just be a really short game.

Let's put it this way. It's The Guy Game bad. ... No, it's worse. Rat Race is aspiring to that level. When Rat Race goes home to its four-post canopy bed, it has pictures of The Guy Game hanging on its wall. We're still hopeful for a glimmer of comedy, a smirk even. We just haven't seen it yet.
