  1. Shark Tale isn’t aimed at me. That said, I’m having a ball playing it with my wife. The game is squarely aimed at those who loved the recently-released movie but there is enough nostalgia there for the whole family to enjoy.
  2. It's not groundbreaking, but it doesn't have to be. Kids don't care about that. They care about having fun playing it, and I think that is where Activision has succeeded here.
  3. There is a unique and clever mix of various game styles that keeps things fresh (always good when fish are involved) but there are a few difficult hurdles that might stump the younger crowd and require some parental or sibling assistance.
  4. Instead of a linear adventure, the game mixes different styles of gameplay into unrelated missions and while strange on paper, the gameplay works surprisingly well.
  5. A fantastic kid’s game and truly is a breath of fresh air…Er, water for a genre usually plagued by below average cash-ins. It has substantial long-term appeal, as gaining an Elite rating on all chapters is an all but impossible task and there are heaps of extras to unlock.
  6. It might be geared towards younger audiences, but it’s good enough to be placed up there with the big boys.
  7. After paying off the kids with more junk food I spent a few hours with the game myself. I found it ridiculously easy, except for the dancing segments, which were fairly difficult.
  8. Players will have the choice of either running through the dance card by sitting on their behinds, or actually get up and bust a move using a system compatible dance pad.
  9. The game works in its purpose of being a great kid’s game based on a strong license. It’s basic, it’s not too hard, but it is all done very well and it’s not a bad game in the slightest.
