  • Summary: As a story extension to the highly anticipated upcoming blockbuster film of the same name from Walt Disney Animation Studios, the Wreck-It Ralph video game is set to inspire a whole new generation of young gamers as a classic, arcade-style side scroller featuring Ralph - the misunderstood villain of his own arcade game who sets out to prove he can be a hero too. Debuting this fall tied to the movie release, Wreck-It Ralph will bring all the fun from the big screen right into the living room for the Wii system from Nintendo, and the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS hand-held systems.

    Wreck-It Ralph does some things right. The voice work is a lot of fun and the sound effects and 3D are impressive, especially for fans of the film. At the end of the day though, it just doesn't offer enough. It's a pretty basic side-scroller with little in terms of depth or length.

    Wreck-It Ralph could have been so much more. Disney clearly spent a lot of time injecting the film’s world with strong gaming influences and tons of variety, and it’s baffling that the developers didn't build upon this. Instead, it feels like nothing more a half-hearted attempt to cash-in. It looks and feels like a retro game in some ways, but it’s simply far too shallow and devoid of fun to draw you in. As a result, you should probably save your quarters for a more worthwhile effort on 3DS.

    Just like Fix-It Felix, Wreck-It Ralph on 3DS is short, plain, and not a lot of fun to be around.

    Bad movie tie-ins are hardly a new phenomenon but never before has so much potential been wasted on so uninteresting a video game.
  5. Simply garbage. [May 2013, p.87]

    As a $1-title in your favorite app store, it might have passed - but Wreck-It Ralph is actually so boring that even that might be too much to ask from us customers.
