  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. 45
    Bolt barely uses his super powers, and Penny is not presented as a particularly interesting character.
  4. Bolt's superpowers can't save anyone from a poor camera and dull gameplay.
  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. Repetitive, short, and dirt simple, Bolt won’t likely be very fun for anyone.
  7. 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.
