  1. Excellent graphics, animation, voice acting and control make the GCN adaptation of Finding Nemo a pleasure to watch and play. [July 2003, p.145]
  2. One of the best movie-licensed games I’ve seen so far this year and I highly recommend it for kids and their parents or anyone just looking for a fun and unique game.
  3. It’s frustrating at certain points, while other gameplay is sloppy executed.
  4. A pleasant game, surprisingly tough in places and if you're over 13, probably likely to be the cause of quite a few broken joypads in its flawed glory.
  5. 60
    Horrid load times. There is no reason why it should take more than three minutes to get to a level, especially considering the age group this game is targeted at. And there's certainly no reason the GameCube version should take longer to load or look worse than the PS2 game.
  6. An uncomfortable, awkward attempt at a platform adventure title.
  7. 43
    Making a game intended for children does not make poor game design OK. While children may indeed enjoy parts of Finding Nemo, it is likely it will greatly frustrate them in the long run, and frustration for frustration’s sake is simply no fun.
