    In spite of a few issues with combat, levels that may be just a little too linear, and a playtime that runs on the short side, The Tale of Despereaux stands out as an above average movie game.
  2. Aside from going back and collecting more notes, there’s essentially no replay value here at all. While there’s no doubt that Despereaux will make a great present or stocking stuffer, if you’re considering it for yourself, you would be advised to rent it.
  3. Overall, The Tale of Despereaux for the DS is perfect game for those younger and somewhat experienced gamers who loved the movie and own a DS.

    Tales of Despereaux is a surprisingly fun title that takes the basis of what makes these types of game fun and runs with it.
  5. 70
    The handheld's two-dimensional action is charming and well designed.
