  1. This is a great game for kids, adults and families and makes a refreshing change from some of the stuff in the shops at the moment.

    The game is a lot of fun, makes great use of the license, will definitely appeal to the children (although the aiming system will be a bit hard on them at first) and is even enjoyable for older gamers out there who want a light-hearted platform adventure with an enjoyable story, setting and concept.
  3. For kids who have seen the film then this game is going to be a grand expansion for them to get some hands on with Wilbur and Co. For anyone else then there’s some decent adventuring to be had here despite the simplicity of the game’s premise.
  4. The characters are colorful and capture the feel of the film eloquently.

    A solid effort, lacks some of the overall polish of games with a higher budget and longer development time, but it fulfills its goal of tying the film world to an interactive medium; an exact definition to what we consider a “good” game.

    No matter the console, Meet the Robinsons is a darn good video game. The game is smart, vast, and really does offer something for everyone.
  7. The platforming leaves a little to be desired, but the rest of the game is varied and challenging enough to keep you entertained.
  8. 70
    An impressive and enjoyable kids game. It has a few issues, but the campaign is fun and provides enough reason to come back to the game more than once.
  9. It won't change your world, but Avalanche Software - veterans of several Rugrats games as well as the forgettable 25 To Life - have delivered a game that is perfectly attuned to the capabilities and sensibilities of its tween audience, and filled it up with solid gameplay that assists or challenges them at just the right times.
  10. A surprisingly solid movie-to-game effort, one that is quite refreshing given the usual level of substandard trash that usually gets trotted out to cash in on a popular film.

    Delicious design. [June 2007, p.92]
  12. Disney's Meet the Robinsons is a fairly satisfying movie tie-in that borrows heavily from a number of classic adventure and action games.
  13. Straightforward, fun, and filled with content, Meet the Robinsons is sure to keep a smile on your face while you experience life as Wilbur Robinson.
  14. A rewarding short-lived diversion but as the exceptional ‘Chicken Little’ and ‘Kim Possible’ Disney Interactive game franchises prove, it could have been and should have been so much more.

    Taking out the trash, I kid you not: 30 minutes of mundane pre-scripted yawn inducing tedium. They even mark where to go to on the map. [May 2007, p.65]
  16. Multiplayer for the minigames would have made a great addition to extend the replay value of the game.

    Meet the Robinsons is both uneven and disjointed, hampered by an awkward third-person view and targeting-control scheme. [May 2007, p.77]

    It just falls short of anything higher because it lacks the polish and well-balanced gameplay that we'd expect from any full-price title. [Issue 25, p.63]
  19. A standard, by-the-numbers platformer adventure. There are some neat moments of exploration and odes to sci-fi classics, but the incongruent control scheme – that only gets it half right to boot – relegates Meet the Robinsons to a passing rental at best for your kids because it’s mostly harmless.

    Easy and irritating. [July 2007, p.96]

    Button mashing is boring. [Issue#20, p.93]
