  1. A cute and fun title, perfect for young gamers, and fun for parents too.
  2. Your traditional runaround platform adventure game.
  3. 60
    Ant Bully is your typical video game tie in with a little extra sprinkled on top.
  4. A fun premise for a game spoilt by clumsly controls and gameplay. [Sept 2006, p.82]
  5. As there have been many films adaptations thus far in video gaming-and most of them have never failed to disappoint to some degree-I shouldn't be surprised by this particular title's shortcomings. However, with a cast including Bruce Campbell and a solid movie to draw from, I hoped for more.
  6. The twitchy movement makes it unnecessarily difficult to target enemies with your primitive ant weapons (a lock-on button turns out to be little help) and it's all too easy to fall when carefully crawling up walls.
  7. The Ant Bully isn't wholly shameless about setting the bar low, and kids are bound to get at least a little joy from its small world, but this colony is just too repetitive and dull to be fun for long.
