    It's not great in any one particular area, but overall it's far better than most games engineered to cash in on popular movies.
  2. Scavenger hunts, space battles, joyrides through town – it's all here, and very little of it works. If you were to play each and every stage independently it might be Ok, but it's hard to get past the repetition that develops within each stage type.
  3. There is a load of personality in Chicken Little, and the large variety of level types and playable characters will appeal to fans of the film. [Nov 2005, p.149]

    The game's lower level of difficulty and varied gameplay styles make it easy for just about anyone to get into the game and enjoy the experience.
  5. You’ll be better off watching the movie than playing it, and if you really feel the urge to play something fun, go pick up "Psychonauts" instead.
  6. The same Disney games you've played 300 times before. [May 2006, p.80]
  7. Chicken Little is a fun little game for anybody who doesn't get easily frustrated and any kid who wants a challenge.
  8. Who knew kicking arse with a chicken (wielding a yo-yo, no less) could be so super-cool? [Nov p.93]

    Even if it is considered just a kids game, it still doesn't make the grade. That is even with all the conventions that have been borrowed and all the variety that it tries to provide.
  10. While the movie wasn't exactly a resounding success for a Pixar-less Disney, the game is a surprisingly decent adventure that will please the younger gamers.
  11. This barely qualifies as a game. [Jan 2006, p.100]
  12. It looks okay, and it has some fun, but you've played it before, with more polish. [Dec 2005, p.112]
  13. With some of the core mechanics broken, it's hard to recommend the game to anyone. Still, the sheer variety in things you can do round out the experience nicely, and if nothing else, it's far more than your average platfomer would offer.
  14. For me, it was easiest to trade-off turns: when the game was easy, I let the kids play, when it was too tough for them, I took over. But I can’t see either side enjoying the game on their own, it’s truly a family game to say the least, because without both kids and adults playing, it’s not going to hold your interest.
  15. Every part of this game offers ample opportunities for irritation and few chances for satisfaction.
  16. Fine, if slightly soulless. The corporate sheen makes us feel queasy, but there's no denying it's a playable, if simple, tie-in. [Apr 2006, p.113]

    The developers did a good job with the graphics putting actual scenes from the movie in the game and sound by acquiring the film’s voice talents.
  18. The action is fluid, and the voiceover occasionally knowing, in an archly self-referential, Pixar kind of way.
  19. This is one piece of poultry that deserves a visit from the Colonel.
  20. Disney did put together a solid product instead of coming out with a sloppy game to market with the movie, but they still didn’t quite close the deal.

    As far as movie games go, this one is a good one. The gameplay is impressive even if it feels like a few mini-games in between. The graphics are pretty impressive as well. Full Review »
