  2. Negative: 5 out of 10
  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. 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]
  3. 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.
  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. You know the drill: games based on movies tend to bite.
  9. 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.
  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]
