  1. 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.
  2. This 3D adventure game does expand on the movie's story, but it's also uninteresting and repetitive.
  3. 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.
  4. It’s simply another in a long line of cookie cutter games that won’t really add anything to your collection.
  5. Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    All too familiar platforming action spoiled further by oversimplified, unpredictable controls and utterly dreary objectives. [Sept 2006, p.95]
  6. 40
    The gameplay is repetitive and there's hardly any support from the cast of the film.
  7. Play UK
    Unresponsive controls and a twitchy camera, however, are a little harder to swallow and when added to the sheer monotony of the experience, you just end up with [a] weak title. [Issue 143, p.94]
  8. 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.
