  • Summary: When a housing development intrudes on their woodland habitat and an opossum is kidnapped by an evil exterminator, three wise-cracking rodents and one very neurotic reptile invade the 'burbs in a quest to rescue their friend. Battle the exterminator and his army of mind-controlled mammals, and save the forest (and your own hide) from the world’s peskiest critter-man. [Activision] Expand

  1. The mixture of action, stealth, and minigames will keep your attention for the game’s direction. The solid gameplay is made better because of the excellent presentation.
  2. Bottom line: Over the Hedge was fun for tweens, but better for the bottom end of the ESRB rating.
  3. There's no camera control/But don't be so droll/You've still got a prayer/In head-to-head multiplayer. [Aug 2006, p.91]
  4. The game is not terrible. It is just terribly familiar and lacks replay value - except for trying to play it multiple times to see how fast you can do it.
  5. 65
    Over the Hedge is entertaining enough to hold its own, and that is a victory in itself.
  6. A few unique touches are overshadowed by crushingly dull gameplay in this perfunctory animated movie tie-in.
  7. It is what it is…a fairly mediocre game aimed at being a marketing plug on a movie franchise. With those expectations it succeeds, and for a random afternoon of whack a mole with a turtle and a golf club it’s enjoyable.
