    If throwing cubes of trash at buttons is up your alley, then we've got just the thing: Heavy Iron's game-itization of Pixar's WALL-E is an offal-chucking aficionado's dream come true. What it isn't, though, is much fun at all.
  2. It even brings some clever and unique aspects to the game design including two fun sections where you can manually spin platforms around to create the best route.
  3. The story is charming but ironic at the same time. Lighthearted humor is served throughout, making WALL-E one of the most fun kids’ games an adult can play.
  4. Whilst WALL-E might be the most adorable robot you’ll ever see, the game certainly isn’t. The game feels rushed and is a very poor use of the license.
  5. WALL-E is a fun character and film, but while the game explores more of the movie's universe, the gameplay doesn't explore anything by familiar ground.
  6. Somehow someone somewhere managed to design and create a game that is almost completely devoid of fun and enjoyment.
  7. It’s just a bit of, well, a waste. It begs for something more, some more substance to the charm that’s already here in spades—more under-the-hood play for those precocious kiddies, more behind-the-scenes goodies for those older kiddies-at-heart who, let’s face it, probably bought WALL-E for their own kids to play.
  8. It's good but not great, occasionally running into camera problems that result in a lost life from a mistimed jump or getting "stuck" behind a wall. The multiplayer is good too, consisting of salvaging and shooting levels where you can compete with up to three other friends in offline split-screen action.
  9. Loud and neon-soaked, it’s the quiet, subdued moments that truly capture the essence of WALL•E, a notion that is lost, for the most part, in this disappointing iteration.
  10. Wall-E is overflowing with charm, but the simple gameplay makes the experience fall flat.

    A pile of uninspired, by-the-numbers gameplay and missed opportunities.
  12. The main problem is that the developers really didn’t do anything to make this game stand out from other platform games and it isn’t “deep” enough to keep older gamers coming back.
  13. A decent home console version.
  14. 45
    With tons of visual issues, a horrible camera and gameplay that isn't particularly striking or innovative, Wall-E does a disservice to the little robot that falls in love.
  15. It’s mildly entertaining, mildly disappointing, mildly challenging and overall just mild.
  16. 70
    Wall-E is a much better game than many could have hoped for.
  17. This is not a game you should be looking to add to your collection. It is just one of those games made to be bought for young kids that enjoyed the movie.
  18. Another movie based game and another typical outcome, it's hard to have a hopeful attitude before entering this game into the tray because it's predictable of what it's going to be like.

    Rent instead or save your cash for the DVD. [Sept 2008, p.79]

    A bot-standard, rusty platformer for kids. [Sept 2008, p.86]
  21. The game will only take most gamers five hours, at most, to complete, but it does offer a little bonus replay value in the way of same-console multiplayer modes.
  22. I've gotten used to not expecting much from movie games, and when I played the final version of WALL-E, it met those light expectations.
  23. As film licences go though, WALL-E definitely errs on the side of average and doesn't have enough going for it to work as a standalone title in its own right, leaning far too heavily on its source material and the hope that fans of the flick will pick it up rather than the game attracting players looking for something that little bit different.
  24. 25
    Though it sharply replicates the film's look and sounds, the Wall-E game has none of the movie's romantic spirit as it sends the lead robot and his gal pal Eve on a set of uninspired missions pulled out of the videogame cliches handbook.
  25. Wall-E is yet another movie tie-in game that doesn’t meet the quality of the Pixar film.
  26. Wall-E is your typical movie turned game, it feels rushed, the graphics are substandard and it isn't fun to play.
  27. While I wouldn't recommend it to anyone except kids (or their parents), in part because of the rather subpar control scheme, at least the older brother who has to watch or play along isn't going to be completely annoyed at the game's quality level.

    Small kids might like it, but will need supervision to solve some of hte later puzzles. Adults beware. [Issue#36, p.96]
  29. This game offers a few fun moments but is just too short to justify much more than a rental.

    A potentially not bad Pixar tie-in that gets very average, very quickly. Shame. [Sept 2008, p.82]

    Oh great, another run of the mill 3D platformer to tie in with a film. But this one does something new, its got frustrating controls.Oh great, another run of the mill 3D platformer to tie in with a film. But this one does something new, its got frustrating controls. There's no excuse why the game can't look, play better and have greater ideas. It reminds me of a cheaper Ratchet and Clank. Shame the game doesn't live up to the films reputation. Full Review »
