  1. With solid gameplay and a great presentation, Kung Fu Panda is easy to recommend to fans of the movie or parents looking to entertain their kids with a robust yet accessible action platformer.
  2. Given its high production values, fun factor, and $19.99 price tag, KFP is easily a worthy addition to an action-gamer’s collection.
  3. Fat, funny animated movie hero and a computer game license - a combination that spells disaster. Not this time though. It's one of the best movie games, on par with Cars, joining the ironic humor with enthralling (if easy) fights. [Aug 2008]
  4. For a movie tie-in, Kung Fu Panda really isn’t bad. Consider me astonished.
  5. Pretend you’re buying it for your kid brother, or spare your blushes and order online because there is a surprising amount of fun to be had in loading this chubby bad boy up and thrashing the hell out of pigs with sticks for an hour or two. [Sept 2008, p.61]
  6. Kung Fu Panda is not really hard to play, but it is a perfect game for your leisure time. Especially younger gamers will be happy with it.
  7. Kung Fu Panda is a surprisingly good movie game that is marred by awkward PC controls.
