  1. The surprising thing about Scaler is the game is just plain fun to play. The gameplay is robust with reasonably challenging puzzles to solve, the control system is enjoyable as Scaler is easy to move and smooth, and the story is humorous with a solid plot.
  2. It's fun, it's challenging, and it's breathtaking to look at, even if you are watching somebody else play it.
  3. Most experienced gamers will find this game a little on the short side, but most kids, the actual target audience, will probably think it's just right.

    What it lacks in innovation it more than makes up in style, humor and solid game mechanics. Controls feel smooth and responsive and the action is always brisk. The inclusion of evolutionary transformations is an especially nice touch.
  5. 80
    It looks amazing, sounds great, and most importantly, it's a lot of fun. What's even more impressive is that all of this entertainment is offered at such a reasonable price.
  6. I honestly recommend the Xbox version because it looks better then the rest. It is also kind of hard to find a platform title for the Xbox that is geared toward children. So check it out.
  7. If you are on a limited budget and need a game for the kiddies, than look no further than Scaler!
  8. The mixture of varied and well executed gameplay, along with tolerable graphics make for basic yet entertaining action that even grandma can enjoy, well, at least until she has a photosensitive seizure.
  9. When it is all said and done, Scaler isn't much more than your functional, slightly-but-not-much above average platformer. For $20, there are certainly worst buys and the game would complement perfectly "Ty 2" and "Tak 2" for a platform-hungry younger gamer.
