  1. Children in the target age range for the "WALL-E" movie will undoubtedly love this game, from the youngest in that demographic to the oldest. But the game is also quite enjoyable and good for adults, especially fans of "WALL-E" or Pixar movies in general.
  2. The story is charming but ironic at the same time. Lighthearted humor is served throughout, making WALL-E one of the most fun kids’ games an adult can play.
  3. WALL-E is a fun character and film, but while the game explores more of the movie's universe, the gameplay doesn't explore anything by familiar ground.
  4. It's good but not great, occasionally running into camera problems that result in a lost life from a mistimed jump or getting "stuck" behind a wall. The multiplayer is good too, consisting of salvaging and shooting levels where you can compete with up to three other friends in offline split-screen action.

    WALL-E is a solid platforming game that children will love.
  6. Overall WALL•E for the PS3 is not a bad game but it does have its share of issues and annoyances.
  7. WALL-E on the PlayStation 3 is about the best out of the three versions I reviewed and may be worth buying. If you want a decent game that has the sections of multiplayer that younger ones can easily have fun with and a few hours of WALL-E trash gathering or EVE flying this is worth it.
  8. No question, you will immediately take the little robot to your heart. If you are looking for some brainteasers and alternations during long winter days, this title will warm up your heart.
  9. Wall-E is overflowing with charm, but the simple gameplay makes the experience fall flat.

    It features an engaging mix of levels. [Oct 2008, p.85]
  11. A decent home console version.
  12. This game should be enjoyable for the whole family and a parent may need to be present in order to explain everything to a child. For a movie tie-in game for the younger crowd, it's not bad.
  13. WALL-E is a boring game with sub-par gameplay, poor replay value, lacking presentation, and little-to-no visual polish.
  14. Wall.E is another disappointment in a series of movie/game disappointments. Kids will tire after their parents have long left the room but there will still be hours left to beat game.
  15. This is a game intended to be played alongside its Pixar big brother and provide an experience that kids will relate back to, and it does that just fine.

    Wall-E falls into that unfortunate category of weak film to game adaptation. With tons of visual issues, a horrible camera and gameplay that isn't particularly striking or innovative, Wall-E does a disservice to the little robot that falls in love.
  17. I guess the unkindest kick in the, uh, waste cubes is the lack of extras.

    THQ's platformer handles infuriatingly enough to make you hate - arguably - Pixar's most likeable character yet. [Sept 2008, p.79]

    A pile of uninspired, by-the-numbers gameplay and missed opportunities.

    Dull puzzles. [Sept 2008, p.96]
  21. Wall-E is monotonous, filled with technical problems, and most importantly far from the potential of PlayStation 3.

    It’s been awhile since I played a game that butchered so many of the basics of gameplay and design. [Sept 2008, p.103]
  23. Somehow someone somewhere managed to design and create a game that is almost completely devoid of fun and enjoyment.
  24. 16
    If throwing cubes of trash at buttons is up your alley, then we've got just the thing: Heavy Iron's game-itization of Pixar's WALL-E is an offal-chucking aficionado's dream come true. What it isn't, though, is much fun at all.

    I wasn't expecting much, but at least I thought there were going to be decent graphics! Nothing about this game is fun. The gameplay is I wasn't expecting much, but at least I thought there were going to be decent graphics! Nothing about this game is fun. The gameplay is dull, graphics are terrible, the puzzles are bad, linear gameplay. Avoid! Full Review »

    PS2-level graphics and gameplay that feels like a chore. Depressingly bad.
