While Meet the Robinsons is nothing revolutionary, it does provide an enjoyable experience all the way around. If you are the type of gamer that loves platform games and loves the movie sub-genre just as much, then this game was designed with you in mind.
The kiddies will enjoy seeing more Robinsons goofiness, and you won't mind picking up the controller to help them through the occasional tough part. Just try not to get too frustrated with those darn Wii Remote controls.
Disney's Meet the Robinsons gameplay is nothing that you haven’t seen in many other third person action games. You will do all the normal tasks that you have done millions of times in other games with very little variation. The camera needs some serious work as well.
A solid effort, lacks some of the overall polish of games with a higher budget and longer development time, but it fulfills its goal of tying the film world to an interactive medium; an exact definition to what we consider a “good” game.
Although the core gameplay is built around a solid base of exploration, puzzle-solving, and combat, Meet the Robinsons suffers in some technical areas that become especially noticeable when the action heats up. [May 2007, p.85]
If you must pick up this title because of a significant other, then buy another version. I can’t guarantee the controls will be better, but you’ll save a few bucks and the GCN version does play on the Wii as well.
