  1. The mixture of action, stealth, and minigames will keep your attention for the game’s direction. The solid gameplay is made better because of the excellent presentation.
  2. 80
    As a licensed game, it’s fantastic. It does justice to the source material in both the movie and comic strip, while providing a good game on top of it.
  3. 80
    The game is very competent and offers up a fairly meaty single player experience. Taking cues from Metal Gear Solid and Prince of Persia, Over the Hedge is a well designed adventure that requires patience and planning.
  4. The concepts behind the gameplay aren't exactly original, but their use and execution makes up for any stolen ideas. What the developers have done is unexpected: they've taken an excuse to make a truly forgettable game, and instead produced a quality product that keeps the player playing, and occasionally makes them laugh as well.
  5. The mixture of simple platforming and stealth make for an enjoyable experience, not to mention the fact that it’s a pleasure to look at.
  6. Your kids will love it, and even older gamers can find something to enjoy in the lighthearted stealth gameplay.
  7. It's dull, unsatisfying far for fans of the movie or the less discerning gamer. [Aug 2006, p.66]

    This is objectively the best game you can buy right now; its realistic and visionary art style, combo'd with the amazing soundtrack, the witty dialogue and astoundingly challenging yet rewarding gameplay makes this game a must buy, and also shows the why the DS is the single most succesful game system of all times.
    Cory in the House is the iPhone 6 of software; the ultimate masterpiece. All things that games try to do in different ways, CitH does perfectly well without compromising other areas. It is a milestone not only in videogames, but in art itself
