    Another infamous example of how a movie game is rushed onto shelves and placed into homes before the game is even ready. The game feels like its missing a core premise. Is it the gameplay? A little bit of that. graphics? there lame, but not the biggest complaint.

This game has really know reason to exist, except for the fact that it is a blatant milking of a popular movie. Nothing stellar here in any meaning of the word, and when your playing this you'll just miss the magic of the movie and the entertainment of thousands of other far superior games. Expand

  1. Kids aren't going to want to rescue the bad guys of the movie, kids want to explore the factory, swim in the chocolate lakes and hijack cars.
  2. The controls are awful, the camera is beyond appalling, the graphics are hideous, the environments are bare, the gameplay is unbearably repetitive and the whole thing is an utter chore to play.
  3. When a game is as derivative and uninspired as this one, a rotten camera is just another nail in its coffin. Unfortunately, the film franchise graveyard won't let these monsters die.
