Silver? More Like Bronze

We'd like to say the gaming industry is 3-0 when it comes to this summer's blockbuster sequel adaptations, but they're gonna have to settle for 3-0-1, at this point. That's because while The Slug thinks the "Spider-Man 3" and "Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End" games were better than the movie, the "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" game isn't better — but it's not worse, either. It's just as bad.

So, um, congratulations to The Thing, Invisible Woman, Mr. Fantastic and Johnny Storm. Some people we know actually liked the movie, but we thought it was tolerable, not horrible. Same goes for the game. Go see this week's "Up Down Left Right" weekly gaming video for our attempt to track down the Silver Surfer, but stay for our interview with funnyman Fred Willard.
