  1. The secret is in the details. [Aug 2007, p.68]
  2. If you go into it knowing that stretches of it can be aggravating, either because they push your skills to the test or make you question the gameplay, it should do the same for you.
  3. This isn’t an exceptionally bad game, but it is an extremely mediocre one. The movie is a must-see, but unless you’re a huge fan of the film (or desperate for an Xbox 360 platformer), you should stay away from this one.
  4. The movie is well worth the admission. The game, on the other hand, is a mixed bag and will be enjoyed most after you have viewed the movie.
  5. Ratatouille has its moments, it will definitely appeal to fans of the film in terms of location and the characters.
  6. A cheery enough companion to the movie, let down by huge frustrations. [Christmas 2007, p.85]
  7. 55
    Basically, only play Ratatouille if you're the most hardcore fan of the movie, and you just adore rat platforming action.
  8. A mediocre platformer with very serious problems with its gameplay and sound elements.
  9. Competent in its own right, playable even, but deep down as nutritionally void as the popcorn you'll scoff while watching the movie.
  10. The game sure looks pretty, but hopefully your tastes are refined enough to browse the menu a bit longer.
  11. A slick yet largely routine exercise in jumping, balancing, and fast-twitch hand-eye coordination. [Sept 2007, p.76]
  12. If you like to be tortured, you could just go to the store right now and pick up the game; you'll be very satisfied.
  13. Sloppy controls and occasional glitches make Ratatouille one kid-unfriendly platformer.
  14. 40
    Ratatouille doesn’t do anything to avoid the curse of licensed games, and the Xbox 360 version feels especially unfinished thanks to the horrible hit detection issues.
