  1. The game is by no means for everyone, but with amazingly good graphics, a theme and feel that stick remarkably close the movie, and enough challenge to keep the game from being beaten in a few hours, Finding Nemo presents the first really attractive Disney movie/game tie-in in years.
  2. If you liked the movie, you will in all likelihood enjoy the game... You can think of Finding Nemo as "Ecco the Dolphin" Light.

    It's colorful and good looking, provides a good healthy level of anti-stupid puzzles and gameplay techniques and it's funny and enjoyable to boot.
  4. It's pretty shocking to see how well Finding Nemo's story and settings translate into a game. [Aug 2003, p.99]
  5. It might take place underwater and feature fish instead of flesh-and-bone characters (or furry one’s like “Monster Inc.’s” Sully), but gameplay in THQ’s first Disney Interactive title is as cookie cutter as the mold used by Traveller’s Tales to fulfill its contractual obligations.
  6. Very plain and ordinary, and without the Nemo license there wouldn't be much reason to actually own it.
  7. Finding Nemo was released three years ago, so by now, it can be had for less than $20, but you should save your cash, hard-earned or otherwise, for the many better kids' games out there.

    Finding Nemo isn't half-bad, it isn't half-bad at all. But it's far from good. Pros: Fantastic graphics elevate the character development; rich, colorful visuals; fairly unique gameplay. Cons: Dull level design; the difficulty can be frustrating; too reliant on movie clips. Collapse

    Quite possibly the worst game I've ever played (I know E.T. and Superman 64 are worse, but I haven't played those). This game is a complete piece of crud. The first thing worth noting is its difficulty. It's usually unfair to judge a game by its difficulty, however, this game is literally impossible! There is one level I can never get past because it's so freaking difficult! You're supposed to race Dory in this level, but she goes so fast that it takes her only seconds to get to the end, and it would take you minutes! In other words, the game is literally cheating on you! The graphics aren't very good either. While not nearly as bad as the game play itself, they're still pretty bad! It's like some little kid rolled a ball of play-doh, and a random guy walked up to them said "That looks great! I'll use it for the game I'm making!". That's my theory on it anyway! If you really like Finding Nemo, go see the movie, and stay away from this piece of crud!!!!!!!!!!! Expand
