  • Summary: Playing as Wilbur the pig or Templeton the rat, gamers will be drawn into engaging tasks as they explore four worlds including Zuckerman's Barn, a Junkyard, the Countryside and the County Fair, each containing numerous challenging levels. Along the way, players will meet and interact with truly memorable characters from the movie including Charlotte, Wilbur's best friend and confidante, who requires aid in finding her missing spider hatchlings; and Gussy the goose, who needs help locating and hatching her goslings. The GBA and DS versions feature additional entertaining mini-games, such as Ring Toss and Bumper Cars, that are hidden throughout the multiple levels. The mini-games are designed for easy pick up and playability and will keep gamers coming back to the fascinating world of Charlotte's Web. The Nintendo DS version contains numerous extras that maximize the handheld's unique capabilities; including stylus support and wireless multiplayer for up to four players. An additional, unlockable mini-game, where gamers can play as Fern and care for Wilbur, is also waiting to be discovered. [Sega] Expand

  1. The main draw to Charlotte's Web is clearly its decently sized story mode and it absolutely delivers a fine family-friendly platforming romp for you and your kids to play and enjoy while it lasts.
  2. 65
    It's more fully featured than its GBA counterpart, and will remain entertaining for longer. But also consider saving the 30 bucks on the game, and spending eight dollars instead on the book that started it all.
  3. The various minigames add some breadth to the experience, but as a whole Charlotte's Web feels somewhat incomplete. [Jan. 2007, p.112]
  4. The bulk of the beast is a poorly programmed platform game, with a useless jump, lamely linking itself to the book/film's story with unlocked Story Pages. [Feb 2007, p.82]
