  • Summary: Players take on the heroic personas of the TV star dog, Bolt, and his owner, Penny, from the high-action television series featured within the Disney film. As Bolt, players can use his superpowers, including laser vision and his superbark, which sends out a sonic blast to devastate opponents, and as Penny, players utilize stealth, hacking skills and a wheelbar, inspired by her scooter seen in the movie, to outwit enemies.

  1. As a single adventure, Bolt DS is mediocre. It’s not a terrible game, but it greatly lacks focus and the mechanics are too loose to offer even mindless, button-mashing pleasure.
  2. The Disney license doesn't save this slightly humorous game and its boring fighting system.
  3. Bolt's superpowers can't save anyone from a poor camera and dull gameplay.
  4. 45
    Bolt barely uses his super powers, and Penny is not presented as a particularly interesting character.
  5. You know that complicated "some assembly required" toy the grown-ups have to set up, and twenty minutes later the kids are having more fun with the box than their actual gift? This is that toy... just a smaller box.
  6. Bolt for the Nintendo DS hardly does enough to keep itself interesting, even through the short amount of time it'll take to see everything that the game has to offer.
  7. Repetitive, short, and dirt simple, Bolt won’t likely be very fun for anyone.
