Ben 10 Game Over
The episode starts off went Gwen and Ben playing Sumo Slammers Smackdown. Ben and Gwen gets into an argument over a video game. One day, lighting strikes zapping both Gwen and Ben into the game. Once in the game, Gwen and Upgrade (Ben) fight off Robo Sumos. Ben revert back to his normal human form and get smashed by Robo Sumo. Gwen and Ben is on their last life trying to survive. Ben and Gwen get weapons to fight off Robo Sumos and get points. After going to the Dojo and journey through the next level. Ben finds another chest but with Four Arms coin. He transform into Four Arms and meet Ishiyama mistaking him for his arch-enemy. Kenko Ishiyama stops attacking Four Arms and impressed by Gwen skills. Gwen, Ishiyama and Ben journeys to level 13 arena to find the next trunk.
Ben and Gwen gets weapon along with aliens coins. They make their way through the Kappa and solve their riddle. Kenko appears to trap Ishiyama and Gwen, Ben transform to Cannonball. The trio fights off Kenko’s minions and Max tries to find Gwen and Ben. Max pauses the game and Ben explains that if he power off the console, they will be deleted. Ben tells Max they need to get the upgrade icon on level 13 to exit the game. Gwen solve the riddle and transform into a sumo wrestler. Ishiyama, Gwen and Ben reaches the arena and stop Kenko. Ben 10 finds the upgrade icon and Kenko defeats Ishiyama. Gwen and Ben were tricked by Ishiyama (Kenko in disguise) thanks to Max. Upgrade defeats Kenko and brings Ishiyama back to life. Episode ends in Gwen and Ben go play outside and Max is gaming.
The episode is average and my book. Ben and Gwen still fighting among themselves thinking who is the better hero. Being zapped into the game is no brainier at all and a bit cliche’. In this episode Ben thinks he can handle things on his own. Gwen is the real MVP of the episode. She solve the riddle and knows how to use weapons. Ben thinks he doesn’t need to read the game manual to finish the game. Later on Max refers to the manual to finish the game. If it wasn’t for Max, Kenko would have ended up in the real world. Ben Tennyson screws up a lot of this episode causing Gwen and Ishiyama to lose lives. He soon learn from his mistakes and Gwen gets him a pep talk.
Ben did mean cheat codes to finish the game quicker but Ishiyama says it’s not honorable. In the past, people do use cheat codes but not anymore. Video games nowadays is much easily than 80s and 90s. Throughout the series, Gwen and Ben always fight but care for one other. Ben is impulsive and Gwen has a straight forward thinking. Overall, this episode teach us that reading the tutorial and using your witty to win. Will Ben Tennyson will every learn that his action can cause anyone downfall?
