Critic Reviews for Ben 10: Power Trip
It's difficult to score a release such as Ben 10: Power Trip!, as it belongs to a unique class of games that are known for being half-baked and it's primarily marketed towards children. As far as tie-in games go, Ben 10: Power Trip! is pretty decent. The character variety makes for some nicely varied control styles, while the open-world design allows for a strong gameplay loop centred around chasing quest. That said, Ben 10: Power Trip! also has several glaring flaws – like shallow gameplay and poor performance – that really sink its image. If your child happens to be a fan of the show, Ben 10: Power Trip! has enough redeeming qualities to be worth the punt, but we'd advise everyone else to take a pass.
Ben 10: Power Trip is a game squarely aimed at a younger audience, so don’t expect to find a challenging and deep experience. In our opinion, though, it absolutely nails it as a kids game. It offers an engaging story mode packed with fun and varied missions, as well as a big open world that’s ripe for exploring. Throw into the mix the well-voiced familiar characters, the range of skills offered up by Ben’s aliens and the wealth of side content, and you’ve got an excellent entry point into the genre of open-world adventures.
Ben 10: Power Trip delivers an adult sized game with a child friendly veneer. The co-op might be partially hamstrung with technical issues and a large chunk of the game might feel mundane but this is the best Ben 10 game to date with an open world that kids love to play around in.
Ben 10: Power Trip is not the most beautiful and well-made of the hero's games, but we have to recognize the merits of the title for bringing much of the essence of current open world games, even if in a more simplified way, to a title clearly aimed at children in a very interesting and efficient way. It is a game that, without a doubt, I would love to play in my 10 years if it had been released some 10 years ago.

The developers behind Ben 10: Power Trip sure tried coming up with an ambitious open world adventure for the young ones to enjoy, but they sadly missed the mark. Be it due to budget issues or time constraints, everything in this game feels rushed and half-baked.
