  1. A fun but slightly frustrating game due to the bad camera handling.
  2. Besides the graphics not being real impressive and the character voices not being original this is one of our favorites of the Monsters, Inc. games.
  3. Although Monsters, Inc. is leaps and bounds beyond film-based games, it is still just a mediocre triumph; mind you the game is targeted at pre-teens.
  4. [It] will likely bore the older players and frustrate the young.

    It's tough to be impressed by a game based on a Pixar movie, when it's a given Pixar's CG is 2,000 times better than anything a current game system could offer. [Apr 2002, p.77]
  6. Passable graphics, decent sound, an uncooperative camera angle and cakewalk difficulty make this a great rental option for fans of the movie.

    Don't be fooled into thinking this is a credible piece of software, cause it's not. It's an interactive ad mobile, and in that it's quite exemplary.

    I'm not going to lie to you; this is not a great game. In fact it's pretty terrible. The fact that All you do is run around and I'm not going to lie to you; this is not a great game. In fact it's pretty terrible. The fact that All you do is run around and look at your shadow is pretty poor, if you love the film you might like this, but... maybe if you didn't, you'll find your copy in the pre-owned section of game stop straight after you play.
