  1. Whether you are defending the colony from a hornet invasion by manning goo cannons, racing an obstacle course with a team of ants, or foraging for food, the game keeps things fresh. Too bad none of it is exciting.
  2. Flaws and all this is a great game for the preteen audience. It does bear on the repetitive side, but in light of more recent licensed game, at least there is more than two hours of game.
  3. Another action/adventure with the same objectives found in games 10 years ago. The Ant Bully’s fun doesn’t come from its tiring missions, but from the unique control features that open new possibilities for the way we game.
  4. Slightly better than the GC version, but that's not saying much. We'd much rather write about the genius of Bruce Campbell. [Mar 2007, p.63]
  5. The game sucks you in with some deceptively clever and cryptic gameplay, but around the two-hour mark you’ll quickly realize you have tapped this game for what little fun it has to offer and there is nothing left.

    While the gameplay is pretty entertaining at times, borrowing a few design elements form some of the best adventure games out there, fetch quests still get in the way of an otherwise amusing escapade.
  7. Overall, the game just attempts too much and doesn’t follow-through on it.
  8. Simply too generic in pretty much every way, a collection of ideas done hundreds of times before in other games, offering nothing new to excite or surprise the player. A wholly unremarkable and totally avoidable game.
  9. Its gameplay is niggling and its humour is trite and stale.
  10. The Ant Bully is a cookie-cutter collect-a-thon adventure, and the game makes absolutely no attempt to hide it from the player.
  11. The Ant Bully on the Wii is basically the same uninteresting mess that came out for the GameCube six months earlier.
  12. Adults won’t like it, children don’t like it and absolutely no one should pay money for it—not even as a rental. Heck, we got our copy for free, and we still feel cheated. Stay far, far away from this trash.
