    First off, The Croods is extremely slow to get going. Secondly, though Rovio has added a little bit of thought here, it's not sufficient to elevate The Croods above the overcrowded freemium building masses.

    It's tough not to be cynical when confronted by such an uninspired freemium town building sim such as this. It hardly uses the movie license well.

    Another village-building game. Outside of characters and some creature designs it doesn't really do much with the material from the fantasticAnother village-building game. Outside of characters and some creature designs it doesn't really do much with the material from the fantastic family-movie. As always with these free-to-play village/town builders, you'll do a lot of waiting on timers. For whatever reason they just feel a lot slower than the average game of this type, making progress feel almost non-existant. Of course the game offers up micro-transactions to help speed things up, something you want to watch out for if you're thinking about downloading this for the young movie fans in your house.

    However with little in the way of fan-service and snail paced progress, you're probably better off not considering this one at all. It's a rather dull use of the movie's name and just isn't much fun at all. Younger fans might get a kick out of it for a little bit, but they'll probably just ditch it quickly and get back to Angry Birds. It really is just a waste of time.
