  1. For anyone who has enjoyed recent Disney titles such as Wall-E or other platform games like the recent LEGO Batman, Bolt is just as fun, putting new spins and different functions to otherwise standard platform tasks.

    Even with its rickety presentation Bolt is a highly entertaining and truly enjoyable experience that fans of the movie will enjoy.
  3. Bolt borrows characters from the movie, the entire game story is rooted in the TV show premise of the film, which sadly also means that Rhino, the hamster that stole the show in the theaters, only appears for the prologue and epilogue of the game, since the game you are playing is actually the Bolt marathon he is watching on TV.

    Repetition can be an issue, despite the brief five-hour campaign, but Bolt remains a pretty entertaining adaptation of the Disney flick of the same name, and one that might surprise some older gamers. [Holiday 2008, p.74]
  5. Bolt is an action platformer that benefits from its super ambitions, even if it doesn't completely live up to them.
  6. Differentiating between Penny and Bolt in terms of gameplay and control, the game has enough entertainment value to provide children.
  7. 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.
  8. Those minigame levels are the most fun you’ll have with Bolt. The rest of the game is a buggy mess, full of bad framerates and full-on game crashes at times.
  9. 51
    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.
  10. Disney's Bolt is an utterly generic game, which suffers the unforgivable sin of being too difficult for a young audience. Children and adults alike are encouraged to play something else.
