  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. Kung Fu Panda for the PC is my choice for the button mashing fun as Po the Panda but I am a PC gamer at heart and am quite used to the mouse and keyboard control scheme.
  4. 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]

    Kung Fu Panda is a brief romp, but one that will keep young gamers interested from start to finish. Heck, maybe they’ll even play through it a second or third time. Just remember, the title won’t do much for anybody that would consider themselves a regular gamer.
  6. For a movie tie-in, Kung Fu Panda really isn’t bad. Consider me astonished.
  7. 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]
  8. 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.
  9. I've played a couple other versions of the game, and I know it can be quite fun. The keyboard controls for this one was supremely disappointing to me, but the 360-like controllers did help this issue.
  10. Combine the inability to skip cut scenes with a checkpoint save system, and you have the straw that broke the panda's back. [Oct 2008, p.67]
  11. Kung Fu Panda is a surprisingly good movie game that is marred by awkward PC controls.

    This game rocks! Beautiful graphics, good humor, my kids love it! This game works well on a low-end pc too.
