  1. This is one movie-based game we can whole-heartedly recommend to fans. It’s not quite epic, and it fares on the short side, but shopping elements and unlockables add value to the package. The multiplayer mini-games are less than stellar, but the story-mode level design is sure to welcome you back for repeat visits.
  2. 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.
  3. I was left wanting more, and wondering why solid gameplay sections were only used once.
  4. A children's game that for once delivers the movie experience to the console. Its initial slow pace soon delivers a lot of fun and humour that you would expect from a game of the movie.
  5. Easily one of the best children’s games to come along these days. A nice array of gameplay mechanics keeps the gameplay exciting, while the multiplayer modes ensure hours of additional replayability.
  6. Ice Age 3 is a really good game from a nice movie. Just try it, if you want a funny jump’n’run.

    I personally enjoyed the variety of gameplay and chasing the best challenge times, but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone but an Ice Age super-fan under the age of 10.
  8. Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs doesn't bring anything new that you haven’t played a hundred times before, but the variety of gameplay types provide a break from the monotony of movie-based games.
  9. Overall, Ice Age 3 is one of the best Wii games I’ve played so far this year. Its variety and high production values kept me motivated, and for Pete’s sake, I got to ride around on a Pachycephalosaurus and headbutt other dinosaurs!
  10. 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.

    This is a very fun and accessible title, but only for children.
