  1. The mixture of action, stealth, and minigames will keep your attention for the game's direction. The solid gameplay is made better because of the excellent presentation.

    If you're expecting a heavy storyline with complicated characters, Over the Hedge is not your cup o' tea…it's a morality tale, the good guys are good, the bad guys are bad…and a happy ending is inevitable.
  3. Kids that enjoyed the movie will probably enjoy playing, although parents may want to check out Kao 2 instead, which while not a better game in technical terms, was just more fun to play in our opinion.
  4. OTH is nothing new, but nothing incredibly bad. If you're looking for a simple drive down leisure lane, then this is it. If you're looking for an overall competent game that adds a little humor to boot, then here you go. Just don't expect anything revolutionary.
  5. While definitely not the sort of game that makes you spaz when you hear about it, Over the Hedge does deliver on the goal of all movie games. That is, to not be a complete pile of garbage.
  6. 60
    The game isn't particularly original, creative, or inspired, but for fans of the movie and parents looking for an entertaining, if harmless division for their kids, this is a good choice.
  7. This formulaic title just has very little to offer. It's certainly a pale copy of whatever the movie has going for it, minus the star power, plot, humor and soul.
