    I rented this game from the local video store and love playing it! I originally wanted to buy it. I'm halfway through the game now so there's no sense in buying it. I'm just going to pay the late fees and finish the game. The game does have some flaws with moving and doing some commanding of the Oompa Loompas. I enjoy games like these.

I'm not very much of a fan of the shoot-em up style. If any games sucks it's the Grand Theft auto series! They make the games way too hard. I bout Vice City with my hard earned cash and resold it because I was bored after a half an hour. Expand

    As I painfully maneuvered my Charlie from room to room, I grew more and more desperate in my attempt to find redeeming qualities in the game.

    It could have played like a slimmed down version of Pikmin crossed with quirky, yet solid platformer elements. Unfortunately, bad control and poor execution ruin the experience.
  3. Charlie and the Boring Factory. It's hard to make a fun game based around these kinds of properties, but that doesn't justify bad gameplay, or a lack thereof.
