  1. The controls and goals are decidedly simple, the story is definitely classic and non-violent, but that’s not to say it’s only for younger audiences. Just about anyone can have a good time with this game, at least for a while. The Wii version is well done, and the controls feel well implemented. It’s funny, it’s fun, and it’s just plain easy to enjoy.

    A well-made, but basic platformer that is usually fun despite its lack or originality.
  3. Ratatouille is a sufficient, if unfulfilling, platformer.
  4. 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.
  5. Ratatouille won't astound those looking for something more original. On the other hand, it still gets by with a healthy portion of fine content, enough to be worth a rent – or a purchase to those with young kids. This rat hasn't quite produced a prime rib, but at least the meal didn't stink.
  6. 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.
  7. At $10 more than the PS2/GameCube versions, you’ll get a better looking game, but with wonky controls. Had the Camera or Dash button been changed, then we might have film-tie in greatness here. Either way, the GameCube version is cheaper and will still play on your Wii.
  8. Loads of unlockables and a handful of multiplayer modes round out the respectable package. [Aug 2007, p.88]
  9. Ratatouille is a fun game; the only sad thing is that this game really doesn’t try to add anything new.
  10. Breaks the recent run of poor movie spin-offs by being thoughtful and fun. [Nov 2007, p.94]
  11. We've played far worse movie adaptations, but why play with a copy-rat game? [Dec 2007, p.65]
  12. No shortage of ideas makes this one of the better licensed titles, but its schizophrenic nature disguises sloppy gameplay. [Oct 2007, p.68]
  13. Pretty uninspiring stuff, but I guess if you’re a parent looking for a (relatively) harmless game to pick up for a small child it might do the trick. I’d like to think your kids deserve better.

    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.
  15. 50
    All in all, while Ratatouille has its enjoyable moments, the main missions leave you feeling a bit hungry for something meatier, while the tasks like slides or races spoil your appetite.
  16. While the idea and story remain intact, the actual gameplay manages to suck all of the charm out of the characters and plot, and while there are some slight variations and mini-games that attempt to keep things fresh, everything else about this title is stale.

    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.Ratatouille is one of my favorite Disney/Pixar movies.

    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.

    Very good game. Great graphics and gameplay. Many of the levels and mini games were quite challenging if not a little redundant after awhile. 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. Full Review »
