  1. Who knew kicking arse with a chicken (wielding a yo-yo, no less) could be so super-cool? [Nov p.93]
  2. If you keep in mind that this is aimed at a younger audience, even an older gamer, particularly a parent sharing the experience with a child, can find a lot to enjoy.
  3. A fun little game for anybody who doesn't get easily frustrated and any kid who wants a challenge.
  4. 70
    It may be a little too difficult for really young kids, since it's not a game geared to infants, but for older tots it's a pretty decent ride.
  5. There is a load of personality in Chicken Little, and the large variety of level types and playable characters will appeal to fans of the film. [Nov 2005, p.149]
  6. 70
    A breath of fresh air in a sea of mediocre movie based games. With more gameplay variety than the average game and just an overall happy feeling, there is a lot to be enjoyed here for both fans of the movie and gamers alike.
  7. 70
    The game's lower level of difficulty and varied gameplay styles make it easy for just about anyone to get into the game and enjoy the experience.
  8. For me, it was easiest to trade-off turns: when the game was easy, I let the kids play, when it was too tough for them, I took over. But I can't see either side enjoying the game on their own, it's truly a family game to say the least, because without both kids and adults playing, it's not going to hold your interest.
  9. Chicken Little isn't a bad game at all, and fans of the film will probably gobble it up. [Dec 2005, p.114]
  10. The action is fluid, and the voiceover occasionally knowing, in an archly self-referential, Pixar kind of way.
  11. In spite of Chicken Little having a few fun levels, I wouldn't suggest it to anyone over 10 years of age.
  12. You'll be better off watching the movie than playing it, and if you really feel the urge to play something fun, go pick up "Psychonauts" instead.

    If you really want to play this game, I would recommend renting this. This game is worth only one play through in my mind because as my score would suggest, nothing about this game is more or less than mediocre. Nothing in this game is even near great or amazing. I've had the occasional problem with jumping or the camera and whatnot. Also, you can also really tell in the cut scenes which was originally in the film and what was created by the game developers. So much so that I would recommend the movie over this game and I haven't even seen the seven year old film. Full Review »
