It didn't have to be that way for Minority Report, however. The character graphics resemble the police officers and thugs from the film, although they too are reused countless times. Developer Treyarch is touting a realistic physics system that allows you to punch a guy in the gut, grab him, toss him into a glass wall, see it shatter--with very lifelike movement from all bodies involved (no generic, canned animations here). Minority Report just isn't fun to play, and all because of a horrible targeting system. Minority Report feels like a much more complete film than Spielberg's previous (A.I.) And while you dodge 5-0 and try to figure out why you've been accused of a "future murder," you'll get to reenact bits of the film, like jetpacking and our fave, knocking people upside the head with the "puke stick," which causes victims to blow chunks. The problem with the targeting system is that it can't tell the difference between an innocent civilian and an attacker, or make an intelligent guess as to the threat level of an attacker. Most bad guys wear body armor, so they'll just be blown back by your first shot. There's even an area where you're flying through the air with a jetpack. You'll hate it a lot. The settings are patterned after locations from the movie, although the separate tiles for the background graphics are repeated constantly.

If you get in close, you can pistol-whip them. Fallen enemies will leave behind health items or ammunition for your projectile weapons. If not for the cruel targeting interface, Minority Report would have been a decent game.

At the same time, the game also borrows music from the film and sprinkles in a few speech samples here and there, primarily of wisecracking thugs and the occasional police officer. Just as in the film, the quest to clear your name will draw you into conflict with police and military officers. Cruise's character has the tables turned on him when he is accused of a future crime and must find out what brought it about and stop it before it can happen Activision November 2002 -- If you take the upcoming Tom Cruise flick, remove Tom Cruise, and turn the whole event into a beat-'em-up action game, you'd have Minority Report (uh, the game, that is). Minority Report: Everybody Runs Review Minority Report just isn't fun to play, and all because of a horrible targeting system. In this respect, the video game does a respectable job of emulating the high-tech action that was so prominent in the movie. Often, heavily armed guards will hide behind sentry robots, or you'll face a boss that sends out numerous spiders to distract your aim while it's hurling deadly plasma at you. Unfortunately, the designers of the game chose to include a targeting system that makes it nearly impossible to effectively discriminate between targets. When you're able to target an enemy, the onscreen response of your character resembles a cross between Robocop and Dirty Harry. You play the part of John Anderton, a man accused of a murder he has yet to commit. In conclusion, Minority Report, is a huge dissapointment for the "Minority Report", movie fans. There are eight huge levels to explore, and each stage offers hundreds of people to fight, dozens of rooms to search, and a fair amount of scenery to hide behind. Nonetheless, this point is moot.

In between each stage, you'll get to watch a cutscene based on a scene in the film, although Tom Cruise's likeness has been replaced by a generic stand-in. Frequently, you'll have to press the L and R buttons over and over again to cycle through available targets.
