  1. I can’t recommend Kung Fu Panda for the DS highly enough, especially for the younger kids, perhaps those that wanted to play Ninja Gaiden and weren't allowed.
  2. It is nice to see that Vicarious Visions decided to take this project seriously and put together a competent platformer with enjoyable combat and outstanding production values.
  3. It's a neat cocktail of Castlevania and Metroid - and yes, we realise just how absurd that sounds. [Sept 2008, p.84]
  4. A decent title for the DS that (for once) looks like some real work was put into it. While the game is fairly short, fans of the movie will enjoy this beat-um-up.
  5. Hardcore gamers need not apply, but with terrific voice acting, marvellous controls, a sense of humour and a difficulty curve that refuses to patronise, this game will certainly find a place in the heart of every young - and young at heart - gamer.
  6. Kung Fu Panda’s wonky combat is balanced out by its attractive style, quality audio, and solid platforming.
  7. It's really not even recommended for fans of the movie. The game is short, there are no multiplayer options, no extras, and little reason to come back to Kung Fu Panda DS after its completion.
