  1. Die-hard action-game players will find the game far too easy and much too tedious to be of any real value, but children and Dr. Seuss fans should be well satisfied.
  2. It stinks!...It’s hardly challenging stuff once you’ve worked out what to do, and before long you’ll find yourself turning the machine off in general disgust.
  3. The game's about as ugly as it's namesake, and the gameplay, while enjoyable, gets extremely old very quickly.
  4. Daily Radar
    Finally and least forgivable, important terrain features and items pop into existence only when the Grinch comes close, and disappear again if he moves away. This is endlessly irritating.
  5. The game stunk. Bad graphics and terrible gameplay ruined a game with a cool license and awesome soundtrack.
  6. The Grinch, the anti-"Rayman 2", a 3D scavenger hunt so unappealing and unrewarding (not to mention confusing and boring) you'll be wondering what you saw in it to begin with (besides the obvious tie-in to the movie).
