Like the apocalypse itself, The Last Kids on Earth and the Staff of Doom is rather messy, and not everything works like it should. It doesn’t quite do the series justice, but there are glimmers of a fun game here. Just be prepared for some glitches, and a lot of repetitive missions. Still, for kids who are fans of the Netflix show, the use of the actual voice cast for the main characters adds some worthy authenticity.
The Last Kids on Earth and the Staff of Doom is flawed beyond belief when it comes to its presentation, but I definitely wasn’t expecting for its gameplay and controls to be so solid. Nor was I expecting for it to feature some engaging bouts of vehicular combat and 4-player local co-op.
In this seemingly semi-open world title, the plot is quite short ended and the gameplay was forced on rails. There is almost no consideration in terms of playable character balances and the crafted gear has less to no merit since it doesn’t provide any new elements in skill sets. Additionally, the vast majority of combat is just rinse and repeat. If you’re aware and enjoyed the original book and animation, some of the appearances will be familiar, so treat it like a side-story act and you’ll still be able to chill and enjoy this game to its fullest.
