  • Summary: Welcome to the yard where the world of Nickelodeon's Barnyard movie will come to life. Players start off as the 'new cow on the block,' form alliances with fellow animals, taking on challenges and sporting competitions, protecting the farm from coyote invaders, and doing lots of goofing off on the side. Players will be able to explore a fully interactive, 3D world and prove that they have what it takes to be the biggest party animal of all. Interact with your favorite Barnyard characters from the movie as you form alliances, join teams, go on quests and play mini-games. Competitive and co-operative multi-player mini-game action for up to four players. Free-form gameplay through areas like Walnut Woods, Dankweed Pond and the Barnyard itself. Environment and gameplay change as nights and days of the week pass on the farm. [THQ] Collapse

  1. While catching the spirit of the movie’s anti-hero, Otis, you are able to explore and have his kind of fun — without the life-learning lesson at the end. It’s just silly fun ... for fun’s sake.
  2. The open-ended design is a breath of fresh air, while the overall presentation lives up to the movie's skewed style and humor.
  3. The open ended gameplay, the mini games and a mobile phone to call my own all contribute to a good time, especially if you've seen me in the film beforehand.

    The package is far from perfect, but we’re willing to look past a few flaws to the inviting and entertaining core.
