  1. Undoubtedly a fun little platformer. The game boasts respectable gameplay, and an impressive audio-visual combination, as well as a comical plot from the folks at Dreamworks. There's plenty to do in the levels, and plenty to unlock for a second play through.
  2. Even though the audiovisual performance could still use a fresh coat of paint, the diversified gameplay with distinct sets of character attributes leads to an endless amount of fun for gamers of all ages.
  3. An inspired example of how movie tie-ins should be made.
  4. The gameplay is simple yet heavily varied, which in turn keeps the action fresh and fun. [Aug 2005, p.98]

    It doesn't force you through level after level of mindless item collection. Instead, it boasts a number of well-designed levels that feature a variety of play styles. It's nothing extraordinary, mind you, and it's nothing innovative, but it plays well.
  6. 65
    Not a long game. The whole thing can be finished in just a couple of sittings. However, fans of the film, both young and old, would do well to give it a shot, as it's an entertaining platformer that complements the movie quite well.
  7. And you should all be outraged by the blatant James Pond rip-off, too.

    This is like any platform game, but it is still a fun little game. You get upgrades on the characters as you get farther in the game. You just might enjoy it. Expand
