4/5 stars
Not offensive at all, fun game.

:
I gave this game 4 stars, mostly because of the fun plot and comic style, but also for its boldness of doing a game about a guy crossing the border by whatever means necessary. The game itself is Ok, challenging at times, and you'll get your 2 dollars worth of fun playing it.

I am not sure why so many people claim it to be offensive. I believe in the US we are growing over sensitivity where our sense of humor used to be.
This is as offensive as Nacho Libre or Napoleon Dynamite is to Mexicans; as offensive as Mario Bros should be to Plumbers and Italians; and as offensive as a racing game should be to police and grandma's... anyway, you got my idea.

The plot of the game is based on a love story between a guy who (for whatever reason) cannot cross the border legally to see his beloved Jenny (whom he met online), and he has to go through a series of scenarios related to the border (like swimming on the river or running on the desert),
However, the game itself has very little to do with immigration.

In other words: There are no officers, Arizona minutemen or even fences or walls of shame. The challenges Jose finds are rocks, logs, crocs, snakes, eels, foxes, cactus, quicksand spots and that kind of stuff.
Actually, if you mute your device during the comic screens, you could easily miss the fact that the guy is crossing the border, and he could very well be heading towards the castle where his princess is, locked in it by her tyrannic father.

The playability is pretty simple (and nothing new), and it is done via accelerometer: the guy is running / swimming forward and you tilt your device left or right to make him evade obstacles.

I believe the appealing of the game is the comic-style story. The fact that it uses a lot of 'mexicanisms' makes it quite funny to watch. Here is what I guess some people could call "offensive stereotypes" - but I, being mexican, find them really funny. We mexicans are known to like to laugh at ourselves, even it moments of hardship or even death.

So, for example, the guy wears a wrestling mask. I don't think wrestlers will be offended.
The guy says "Ay caramba!", "Me duele!", "Ay Mamita!" and stuff like that. Which is really funny, particularly because in Mexico only cartoons say that kind of stuff. And I don't think mexican cartoons will find it offensive.
The guy collects a red pepper and goes faster. Grabs a mask and gets health. Grabs anything else and loses health. Pretty standard on this kind of game.
And the guy swims, runs, evades, gets hit and gets up again. I don't think the Olympic team will be offended. =)

I think all of this controversy just adds marketing to a game that otherwise is fun but nothing to write home about it.

In any case I'd recommend to buy it for 2 reasons:
1) because is funny, fun and somehow challenging, and
2) because it shows support to both a latin game industry (the game was developed by a Venezuelan company) and I feel that showing support to these "controversial" games provides motivation to developers to make more games that use current, real topics, and are not afraid of crossing any kind of borders (pun intended).

I read somewhere that if this over-sensitivity trend continues, we will end up only with Zombie games (since no one will get offended if you kill zombies)... and as much as I like Zombie games, I think we can develop a sense of humor with our real world.
P.S. Kudos to Apple for not falling for all the whining and allowing this game to be posted in the store.
