When the legacy of THQ is written, how will it be remembered? Will it be remembered for bringing Saints Row out of the shadow of Grand Theft Auto, its long line of WWE games or will its memory be tarnished by the massive failure known as uDraw? Despite uDraw‘s devastating effect on THQ, it’s one of those things that a lot of people don’t really know about. A year ago, THQ was sitting on about 1.4 million unsold uDraw units and $100 million is lost revenue. Was uDraw really as bad as the sales suggest? Maybe our gameplay video can shed some light on that question.
I picked up uDraw when Best Buy was selling it for $7.99. I bought it so I could regard it as a relic of sorts. I really didn’t have any plans to really use uDraw continuously, but I thought it would be neat to record my first experience with uDraw with you. In this video, I played uDraw Instant Artist, the game that came packaged with every uDraw. Check out the video and see if you can spot where uDraw went wrong.
