  1. If you loved the movie, enjoy funky retro dance music and contemporary hip hop, and want to experience some of the best computer generated undersea graphics to ever grace the GameCube, take Shark Tale for a swim.
  2. It's not groundbreaking, but it doesn't have to be. Kids don't care about that. They care about having fun playing it, and I think that is where Activision has succeeded here.
  3. Instead of a linear adventure, the game mixes different styles of gameplay into unrelated missions and while strange on paper, the gameplay works surprisingly well.

    I think adults and children both will enjoy this game in short bursts. If you're the kind of player who prefers non-stop action for three hours straight, you're going to get tired of this one quickly.
  5. Great for kids. It isn’t too difficult, but it doesn’t hold your hand throughout the entire game.
  6. Be sure you know your kid's gaming styles and preferences before picking up this game, because if your kids don't like fast, timed arcade play, then they won't like this game. For the rest of the young crowd, though, this may be just the ticket.
  7. Yes, it's a little on the easy side, but it's the perfect game for those of us who need a break from incredibly hard games that make us sweat. If you couldn't get enough of the film, Shark Tale for the Gamecube is a necessary purchase.
  8. The game works in its purpose of being a great kid’s game based on a strong license. It’s basic, it’s not too hard, but it is all done very well and it’s not a bad game in the slightest.
