  • Summary: Robots thrusts players into the role of Rodney Copperbottom, the hero of Twentieth Century Fox's 2005 CG animated feature film, as he sets off on thrilling adventures through the living worlds of the movie. The game incorporates movie assets -- including character, graphic and animation assets -- to produce a distinctive impression of playing in the film's universe. The Robots' world is about to be taken over by an evil tyrant and it is up to the player to save his fellow robots from a tragic destiny. Players hop on a train to a mechanical metropolis of moving gears and winding parts, meet an unforgettable cast of characters and battle evil machines -- discovering the many ways a robot can turn his parts into cool and unique gadgets.

  1. A basic license game with no new ideas. As a traditional platformer Robots can be annoying and too difficult. [May 05]
  2. Jumping feels loose and overall control is a tad sluggish, though these issues rarely detract from gameplay. [May 2005, p.76]
  3. Well-meaning if not masterful, this is clearly a game for children rather than older players.
  4. 50
    If you want the Robots experience at home just wait for the DVD... If you really want some cool robots and platforming, go with one of the "Ratchet and Clank" titles.
  5. The developers and movie studios should get together on these kinds of projects. The games always get the crappy end of the stick.
  6. The monotony of item collecting will turn anyone off long before frustration over poor control sets in. [May 2005, p.96]

    My son aged 8 loved it and spent ours playing so I guess it depends on age group.

    I don't see why the review scores are so low for this game. My kids haven't enjoyed a game as much as this since nemo and can't wait to see the film. If you're after a fun good looking game to keep the kids happy on a Saturady afternoon then you won't be disappointed with this. Expand

    The glaring flaw with reviews based on games aimed at kids, is that they are written by adult gamers who judge games with an entirely different set of values or criteria, often inapproriate or totally disregarding children's mindset. My son loves this game. He is 9 and has played lots of quality titled games, so he can tell good from bad. The graphics are superb. Sharp and detailed and display a nice degree of polish. The controls are responsive and easy to handle. The gameplay is roaming-platforming and nothing new but sometimes kids don't need a great deal of innovation. Often adults judge the quality of games to other titles in their genre, but children seldom do. My son is very happy with Robots which is good in my book, because I paid for it!

    Un juego correcto que disfruté de niño. Para ser de una película (este tipo de juegos suelen ser horribles), Robots no estaba mal. De hecho, a ratos era bueno y todo. No merece mala nota, si lo compraras con otros títulos parecidos este casi es una obra maestra. Expand

    Not that anyone expects a lot from a movie game, but Robots is just the bottom of the barrel in this case. P.S., let me remind you that I do not hate games that much. Pros: The graphics are as shiny as a squeaky clean robot. Cons: Nothing else in this game feels squeaky clean at all, it leaves your soul feeling dirty and even muddy. Expand
