  1. Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a welcome game and one that doesn't just follow the tried and trusted formula of the 'movie tie-in' video game.
  2. I would recommend Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs to just about anyone looking for a totally fun and moderately challenging gameplay experience with all of the flavor and style of the Ice Age movies.
  3. To all parents: Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a must-have title for your children on the Xbox 360 – don’t hesitate any longer, rent or buy the prehistoric video game as soon as you can.
  4. In the videogame adaptation of the Ice Age 3 movie you'll get to control several characters from the movie. Most levels have a unique flavor of their own which leads to a varied but also somewhat splintered experience. Everything from Indiana Jones inspired levels to controlling dinosaur spaceship is represented in the game. Though it might be a somewhat uneven experience Ice Age 3 is still the best movie based game for kids thus far.
  5. 65
    If you are a parent who is looking for a game to play with their child that both of you can enjoy: this succeeds quite admirably. It even offers a multiplayer mode if you want to compete together, although this consists solely of mini-games rather than any co-operative sections within the game.
  6. I was left wanting more, and wondering why solid gameplay sections were only used once.
  7. Rigorously mediocre. [Oct 2009, p.95]
