  1. As a game its suited for children but it will please adult fans of the franchise as long as they don't anticipate too much.
  2. Toy Story 3 isn't perfect, with some loose controls and a dull plotline to follow, seemingly more for the convention of having a plot in these games than anything else. The Toy Box mode adds a whole lot to the game, however, propelling it far beyond what a typical tie-in game offers.
  3. Despite some errors, Toy Story 3 is a fun game.
  4. Toy Story 3 is that rarest of beasts, a movie tie-in that's actually fun and does justice to the film.
  5. 80
    Got a kid who's into Toy Story? There's a lot here for them to sink their teeth into, and thankfully it's not all bad.
  6. Toy Story 3 is a funny platformer for young and old. The gameplay involves platforming, puzzle solving and completing missions in open-world environments.
  7. 75
    Toy Story 3 is an example of when a license game is done right.
  8. Toy Story 3 is oriented for young kids, not just for the movie it is based on, but also for its gameplay.
  9. Toy Story 3 ultimately succeeds in the same way that Pixar's films do--it's attractive to young people who get a great surface experience and for older audiences who appreciate extra layers of depth. [Aug 2010, p.107]
  10. It's not perfect--there are some context-sensitivity issues that can make the platforming more frustrating than it should be, for instance--but Toy Story 3: The Video Game is surprisingly fun. [Aug 2010, p.89]
  11. If buying toys was fun in itself we'd give kids the Argos catalogue to play with. [Aug 2010, p.69]

    The graphics are not the best, but the gameplay and the levels are funny and it really enterteins you. I suggest to play it alone when you are playing in story mode, but out of the mode, it is good sometimes to play with somebody. Although it is not better than the past two games. Full Review »
