Red Mile Entertainment Jackass: The Game
- Hearing your favourite Jackasses is entertaining; some games are somewhat fun
- Bad controls, too much load time for a mini-game title, awful character models
Jackass: The Game isn't completely devoid of fun, though. The voice-over work by the Jackass crew is nice, and as awful as most of the games are, you still can't help laughing every once in a while. But ultimately, the game is just a flat and uninteresting take on the otherwise awesome Jackass franchise.
Price$ 49.95 (AUD)
Why someone in their right mind deemed it necessary to give Jackass its own game is a mystery to us. Don't get us wrong, the show and movies are funny as hell, but it would seem a doomed effort to try and translate the brilliant physical comedy into an interactive game.
Sadly, we were proven right: Jackass: The Game is a title that does almost everything wrong.
Feeling like an ass
In Story Mode, you sit down in the director's chair and order the Jackass crew around as they perform their zany stunts. You have to meet goals--get X amount of injury damage, knock over X amount of trash cans--in order to complete the stunt and move onto the next one. Unfortunately, the stunts which are normally hilarious and cringe worthy on the show come off as dull and uninteresting in the game.
This is exacerbated by the poor controls which will leave you screaming with frustration. Another problem with Jackass: The Game is the load times. Mini-game titles are supposed to load up quick and provide fun little diversions but Jackass makes you wait for what seems an eternity before each level is loaded, leaving plenty of time for the dread to settle in. And while the graphics aren't half bad, the character models are revolting.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.
I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.
I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
