  1. But for kid-focused entertainment and the knowledge that a movie-based game is actually well executed, it's hard to top these meatballs.
  2. This very simple and straightforward format may turn off older players in the first hour but the younger crowd may enjoy it plenty.
  3. Experienced gamers will have no problem playing through the game without even the fear of death, but kids will have fun playing alone or with a family member, and parents or older siblings can jump in without being bored to tears. Upping the challenge factor and fixing some of the technical issues would have expanded the audience for this game even further, but it’s a nice step taken as far as video game tie-ins go.
  4. This is a kids' game through and through. Ubisoft should be commended for its efforts, but the game should have been slightly deeper.

    Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a suitable but somewhat bland side dish to be served alongside the movie. It’s a simple children’s game that momentarily distracts and only partially entertains.

    This game is based on the movie and it is a funny one, but it’s not the best of games. It contains around five or six hours gameplay and you can play it in the co-op mode. Most of the time the gameplay is platforming, but it also contains some puzzles and humor. The game is fun but it has too many glitches and bugs. Don’t you care about those points and did you like the movie? Then Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is a nice game to play.
  7. This game is an average platformer based on a movie. There is just nothing exciting about it.

    It's alright for kids, and it'll be quite for them. But i don't think anyone over the age of 7 will enjoy it. But, if your a trophy hunter, like me, it's a platinum you can easily achieve in a day. Expand

    This game is a fun platform game, that can keep you on your toes, the enemies are the highlight for me, because they were the foods. My only flaw was multiplayer. If you are playing as Steve, you teleport to Flint if you get out of the screen for 5 seconds!
    I'm giving this a 5/10.
