  1. Whether you are defending the colony from a hornet invasion by manning goo cannons, racing an obstacle course with a team of ants, or foraging for food, the game keeps things fresh. Too bad none of it is exciting. [Feb. 2007, p.102]
  2. This must be one of the first instances in which a video game actually seems like the natural format. But even here, as you acquire weapons, ride wasps and beat up tiny-huge creatures, it seems never to aspire to much beyond adequacy.
  3. The simple gameplay will amuse rugrats enamored with the animated flick, but the game's bully-ish StarForce protection and constant sound hiccups mire the experience. [Nov. 2006, p.120]
  4. 55
    A mix of surprisingly good and atrociously bad. While the gameplay is pretty entertaining at times, borrowing a few design elements form some of the best adventure games out there, fetch quests still get in the way of an otherwise amusing escapade.
  5. A horribly repetitive platformer.
  6. As there have been many films adaptations thus far in video gaming-and most of them have never failed to disappoint to some degree-I shouldn't be surprised by this particular title's shortcomings. However, with a cast including Bruce Campbell and a solid movie to draw from, I hoped for more.
  7. This 3D adventure game does expand on the movie's story, but it's also uninteresting and repetitive.
  8. The twitchy movement makes it unnecessarily difficult to target enemies with your primitive ant weapons (a lock-on button turns out to be little help) and it's all too easy to fall when carefully crawling up walls.
  9. You know the drill: games based on movies tend to bite.
  10. At its most unimaginative and ill-executed. The controls are faintly cumbersome, the camera a wild, mindless beast, the visuals dour, the combat tedious. [Dec 2006, p.91]
