  • Summary: Players take on the heroic personas of the TV star dog, Bolt, and his owner, Penny, from the high-action television series featured within the Disney film. As Bolt, players can use his superpowers, including laser vision and his superbark, which sends out a sonic blast to devastate opponents, and as Penny, players utilize stealth, hacking skills and a wheelbar, inspired by her scooter seen in the movie, to outwit enemies.

  1. This title is perfect for gamers of the younger generation. With charm and nice features, the game is a good example for a film-adaption. For more experienced gamers, Bolt is not a must have, but is fun, too.
  2. As a final verdict, I'd recommend Bolt for anyone old or young who liked the movie and enjoys platform-style adventure games with a healthy mix of fighting.

    Even with its rickety presentation Bolt is a highly entertaining and truly enjoyable experience that fans of the movie will enjoy.
  4. Eventually, Bolt uses up its charm and can slip into repetition. there are a few attempts to mix things up at the climax which produce mixed results, but there's a fair chance that even young players will lose interest before the denouement. With that said, Bolt is a more than serviceable movie tie-in.

    A few good ideas went into Bolt but the execution is all wrong. Playing as Bolt is both annoying and repetitious and Penny's stealth sections are pointless because of her ability to take down enemies with a single QTE.
  6. Any redeeming features are soon bludgeoned into oblivion by the relentless tedium of Bolt's combat. [Apr 2009, p.88]
  7. 30
    A humorous ensemble film about self-discovery turns into an unoriginal two-character action game with nothing to say in Bolt, Disney's competent but uninspired adaptation of the new toon. All but erased are the film's comedy, its best supporting characters -- and even the titular canine's ability to talk.
