  1. I debated not even mentioning that the game has a nicely implemented two-player mode (if you're flying solo, you can switch between characters with a shoulder button press) because I didn't want a parent thinking, "oh, hey, I can play this game with my kid." No, no you can't, and nobody should be forced to even try.
  2. Over The Hedge's quality ranges from decidedly below average to outright terrible, and you can almost hear the executives at DreamWorks and Activision trying to squeeze every cent out of the license instead of making an entertaining game.
  3. Even for kids, Over the Hedge is absurdly frustrating with its busted camera and indoctrinating logo-storm.
  4. It's stuff like this that gives games featuring licensed cartoon characters such a terrible reputation. [Aug 2006, p.85]
  5. 40
    Kids who loved the movie will like the game. Everybody else will be bored to tears.
  6. This formulaic title just has very little to offer. It’s certainly a pale copy of whatever the movie has going for it, minus the star power, plot, humor and soul.
