  1. This game offers such an immense variety of levels and fun gameplay that you cannot simply ignore it, even as an adult. Kids will absolutely go bananas over the fun characters, the colorful environments and the fun storyline. The only let down is a touch of the soggy control syndrome, but hey - chances are you won't care if you're a 10 year old kid.
  2. Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is very sharp, lighthearted and fun game that will please younger fans of the movie with its varied gameplay, good looks and clever writing. A recommended purchase for fans of the movie.
  3. I would recommend Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs to just about anyone looking for a totally fun and moderately challenging gameplay experience with all of the flavor and style of the Ice Age movies.
  4. It's definitely enjoyable, just not as polished as a AAA title might be.
  5. Ice Age may be kid-friendly, funny, and faithful to the movie, but it's also repetitive and over too quickly.
  6. 65
    While it might not turn hardcore heads, youngsters will get plenty of mileage out of Ice Age.
  7. 47
    The replay value ain't up to much, either. [Issue#182, p.77]

    i bought this game specifically for my 11 year old daughter, and she loves it, and i was surprised how well polished this title actually appears. not a bad kids title, since there is some variation in game-play as opposed to the typical generic movie platformer drivel we are all used to by now.
