  • Summary: Based on the DreamWorks Animation movie written, produced by and starring Jerry Seinfeld, Bee Movie Game lets players race, chase and fly their way through an adrenaline-fueled world of adventure as they experience the hilarious antics of Barry B. Benson, a dynamic and daring bee who knows there is more to life than making honey. [Activision] Expand

  1. Bee Movie Game is easily one of the first platform-style action games that can truly be called “next-gen”. It’s also one of the best movie-inspired games in its genre.
  2. The game has a ton of things to do including racing and collecting honey. While that might get boring quickly, it’s still a very solid effort.
  3. Giving us the option to bypass the mini-games and get straight to the story would've made this charming visual treat even tastier. [Holiday 2007, p.73]

    Bee Movie is a solid game that remains true to the license while actually producing a fantastic experience for players both young and old.
  5. Surprisingly pretty and unexpectedly addictive. [Feb 2008, p.98]
  6. Unless your goal is replacing your expired Ambien prescription with something that may arguably be more effective, or you think casting Jerry Seinfield as a honey producing bug might actually be the bee's knees (sorry), then I highly recommend you rush out and buy this game immediately.
  7. Don't force us to play the minigames to expand the already-uninspiring campaign. It's sloppy game design, and it drags Bee Movie Game even further into the mud.

    This game is really horrible. I bought it for my young son since he loved the movie. It's just unplayable for both him and me.

    I honestly can't, with a straight face, give this game anything higher than a 0. I'd love to critique the gameplay, but I'm afraid there is none to speak of. The only humor to be found is at how incredibly awful the game is. This may sound like little more than bashing, but in truth, it's a fair and honest review of a game unworthy of even these words. For those of you of good humor, however, I recommend trying the free demo for a nice laugh. Expand
