  1. Who knew kicking arse with a chicken (wielding a yo-yo, no less) could be so super-cool? [Nov p.93]
  2. 78
    With more gameplay variety than the average game and just an overall happy feeling, there is a lot to be enjoyed here for both fans of the movie and gamers alike.
  3. Surprisingly challenging in an enjoyable, old-school way. [Holiday 2005]
  4. A fun little game for anybody who doesn't get easily frustrated and any kid who wants a challenge.
  5. 70
    It's not great in any one particular area, but overall it's far better than most games engineered to cash in on popular movies.
  6. There is a load of personality in Chicken Little, and the large variety of level types and playable characters will appeal to fans of the film. [Nov 2005, p.149]
  7. A deceptive "kiddie" game that brought back frightening memories of the mental anguish I battled after losing race after race to a 16-year old Japanese school girl while playing "Mario Kart 64."
  8. 70
    The game's lower level of difficulty and varied gameplay styles make it easy for just about anyone to get into the game and enjoy the experience.
  9. As far as movie-based games go Chicken Little really isn't that bad of a choice.
  10. For me, it was easiest to trade-off turns: when the game was easy, I let the kids play, when it was too tough for them, I took over. But I can't see either side enjoying the game on their own, it's truly a family game to say the least, because without both kids and adults playing, it's not going to hold your interest.
  11. A perfect rainy day rental, Disney's Chicken Little brings nothing new to the platforming genre, but rather wraps up classic elements into a short and sweet little package.
  12. A jaunty, fairly interesting collection of mini-games, but it's been done better a hundred times before. [April 2006, p.89]
  13. 60
    While older players will gnaw through Chicken Little in a matter of hours, younger fans will savor the game's bite-sized levels and tasty characters.
  14. The action is fluid, and the voiceover occasionally knowing, in an archly self-referential, Pixar kind of way.
  15. You'll be better off watching the movie than playing it, and if you really feel the urge to play something fun, go pick up "Psychonauts" instead.
