  • Summary: Inspired by the "superhero movie within the movie" finale of Walt Disney Pictures' film "Chicken Little," Disney"s Chicken Little: Ace in Action features Ace, the superhero alter ego of Chicken Little, and the Hollywood versions of his misfit band of friends: Runt, Abby and Fish-Out-of-Water. The crew of the intergalactic Battle Barn faces off against Foxy Loxy and her evil Amazonian sidekick, Goosey Loosey, who have an evil plan to take over Earth. Battle evil alien robots through multiple levels across the solar system and combat your foes in one of three distinct game play modes: Ace on foot as a soldier, Runt as the driver of an armored tank, or Abby as the pilot of a spaceship. The original Chicken Little and his friends Abby, Runt and Fish we know from the film are featured in cut scenes throughout the game. [Buena Vista Games] Expand

  1. They're all solid and they're all fun, with just the perfect difficulty curve for the younger set, while featuring enough challenge and mass destruction to keep parents interests. [Jan. 2007, p.89]
  2. Thankfully, Chicken Little: Ace In Action strays far enough from the dreadful film from which it was based, and delivers a decent gameplay experience with very little of the bad aftertaste.
  3. Chicken Little: Ace in Action is a decent action game that could have been great with a little more work. As it stands, it’s one of those that’ll be sure to please younger fans of the film, but that’s about it.
  4. 70
    It's a good example of licensing put to a credible use. Nothing will amaze audiences beyond what's been introduced before in other titles, but Ace in Action stands as a confident addition to the ever-mediocre lineup of children's games.
  5. It's not the most spectacular entry in its niche, and there's no denying there are better kid's games out there, but against all odds Chicken Little's second game outing is a respectable and often charming experience.
  6. Fans of Chicken Little might get a kick out of this game; everyone else, don't bother. [Feb. 2007, p.85]
  7. The game offers a nice mix of action, interesting characters and a light but fun storyline that compliments the popular film its based on. But what Ace in Action does the best is target the audience it is for, delivering gameplay that is challenging but liberal in how it handles player failure.
