  1. The mixture of action, stealth, and minigames will keep your attention for the game's direction. The solid gameplay is made better because of the excellent presentation.
  2. The graphics are bright, colorful and compelling – as is the gameplay. Players will be drawn through the game by the brisk pacing and the fun that seems to be firmly ensconced in the style and feel of the game.
  3. It won't win any awards for originality, but with quality visuals, outstanding voice acting, and challenging gameplay, Over the Hedge is guaranteed to entertain and delight young and old alike, and should make the perfect companion piece to the upcoming film.
  4. A fun experience only let down by its repetitiveness. [Aug 2006, p.61]
  5. If there's one true complaint we could lodge against Over The Hedge, it's the game's real lack of camera control.
  6. Despite having tons of unlockable content, the game will hold little thrills for annyone above age 12, and even kids will finish the thing before the weekend is up. [Aug 2006, p.78]
  7. This formulaic title just has very little to offer. It's certainly a pale copy of whatever the movie has going for it, minus the star power, plot, humor and soul.
