  1. Loads of unlockables and a handful of multiplayer modes round out the respectable package. [Aug 2007, p.88]
  2. Ratatouille is a fun game; the only sad thing is that this game really doesn’t try to add anything new.
  3. 70
    A well-made, but basic platformer that is usually fun despite its lack or originality.
  4. Ratatouille is a sufficient, if unfulfilling, platformer.
  5. On its own merits it is a steady adventure with plenty of content and modes making it an outside bet for any younger Nintendo Wii owner.
  6. 55
    An okay platforming game that provides some adequete platforming entertainment. Everything in the game has that same "been there done that" feeling, but as the game doesn't have any major flaws fans of the film and small children may find some fun in the game.
  7. Ratatouille is not really much different in gameplay than most other movie-licensed games; in fact, it may be a bit better since it mooches off an obscure and great source material, Chibi-Robo.

    Ratatouille is the kind of game that makes me what to hold the controls so hard that my risk hart people might say its because I cant play the game or I need to play something else its very exciting and the adventures that you go on with this little muse make you attach to the game if you have watched the film or seen the adverts it a family game and well doing all these thing because is dad asks them getting felt behind the story line is sad it make me want to help the little gay out the levels are well thought through and not too easy to complete. the cost is not too expensive its good value and the good thing about it is when you have finish there is always someone younger waiting for you to give it to them ,as I have found out the words I like to ear are your too old for it, its my age and I can do it, when you know the minute you give it to them they will be asking you to help it a family friendly game and I had fun with it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoy adventure games and have younger children or family members the game can be both at any games shop and it has a age limit on it, with good reason as it takes a bit of getting use to and can get frustrating at times.

    Very good game. Great graphics and gameplay. Many of the levels and mini games were quite challenging if not a little redundant after awhile. Made great use of the wii controller and nunchuck and controls were very precise and intuitive. Running the rat at high speed, power sliding around the kitchen was very well executed and entertaining. Not just for kids. Recommended. Expand

    Ratatouille is one of my favorite Disney/Pixar movies. The same can't be said for the video game, but I think it's still pretty enjoyable. Graphics: 6.5 out of 10
    The graphics are kind of mediocre. They definitely belong on a 6th generation console, which is what this was primarily developed for. If I saw these graphics at a Wii preview instead of something like Kirby's Epic Yarn or Super Smash Bros. Brawl, I'd be writing angry letters to Nintendo. They're not bad, but I have definitely seen better out of the Wii.

    Controls: 8 out of 10
    The controls are very nice on the Wii. There is an active camera, but sometimes you have to manually adjust the camera, which is slightly annoying, but luckily you don't have to do it often. The Wii Remote is very nicely implemented in the game while not feeling overused. Controls are responsive, but running is a bit loose, so I wouldn't recommend doing it. Controls for the slide and boating levels are not very sensitive, unlike the rest of the game, which can be frustrating.

    Level Design and Content: 9.0 out of 10
    The game is an action-platformer with some puzzle solving and cooking simulation(there was no way they could release this game without this). The platforming is very fun and challenging, but can be frustrating at many times, and some secrets just mock you with no accessible path. The story mode is about a 3 hour run, so it's very short, but completionists will be happy to know that secrets, collectibles, and extra levels will make this a 25 hour game to find and unlock everything. The story mode retells the Ratatouille story pretty well, but omits and/or changes some things. I won't go in depth, to avoid spoilers.

    Overall Score: 8 out of 10
    The game has its impressive peaks and controller-throwing valleys, but Ratatouille is a good game for fans of the film to own.
