Austin Powers Operation:Trivia full review

Where there’s a blockbuster film, a computer game spin-off is never far behind, and Austin Powers: The spy who shagged me is no exception. And, in the finest tradition of film spin-offs, it doesn’t live up to its original. All the shagadelic essentials are there – the catch phrases and the time-warp sex puns – but beyond this, it appears that little thought went into the game. The plot is suitably ludicrous: Dr Evil has kidnapped our hero, and his life – and the fate of the world – rests on the outcome of a game show, held at the Electric Psychedelic Pussycat Swingers Club. Sierra has succeeded in making the game groovier than the average pub quiz, but there’s no depth – not enough questions and too few rounds. Also, the interludes between rounds becomes tedious. The cheesy graphics and throwback music are mildly amusing – but not for long. One major problem for Powers fans in the UK is the questions are US-oriented and haven’t been changed for the British gamer.
