  1. You know the drill: games based on movies tend to bite.
  2. Whether you are defending the colony from a hornet invasion by manning goo cannons, racing an obstacle course with a team of ants, or foraging for food, the game keeps things fresh. Too bad none of it is exciting. [Feb. 2007, p.102]
  3. 60
    Ant Bully is your typical video game tie in with a little extra sprinkled on top. Unfortunately, more often than not these bits of extra seem like rushed afterthoughs rather than core gameplay elements.
  4. 55
    A mix of surprisingly good and atrociously bad. While the gameplay is pretty entertaining at times, borrowing a few design elements form some of the best adventure games out there, fetch quests still get in the way of an otherwise amusing escapade.
  5. There were some obvious attempts to bring the game beyond the usual mediocre fare provided by film-to-game adaptations, but the few bright parts are eclipsed by the repetitive gameplay, lackluster graphics and atrocious controls. More frustrating than fun.
  6. There have been enough subpar movie games of late that you should know what to expect, and The Ant Bully meets those expectations. [Oct. 2006, p.87]
  7. A horribly repetitive platformer.
  8. This 3D adventure game does expand on the movie's story, but it's also uninteresting and repetitive.
