  1. The motion-sensitive controls work very well and the graphical upgrade is appreciated.
  2. Really a pretty fun game. Worth a rental at least. If you've got a kid, it's probably worth buying, especially if they enjoyed the movie.
  3. A great game for the little one in your life, and you might have some fun with it, too.

    If the Wii controls had been more responsive and a bit easier to understand when navigating menus, more activities and incentive to explore the sprawling environments had been included and the sound was more varied, then Barnyard would have scored higher.
  5. Regardless of its shortcomings, Barnyard's mini-games and activities on the farm make it worth at least a rental. Just accept the fact that bovines ride bikes and mix drinks.
  6. Ultimately, Barnyard is an easy, mildly entertaining grab bag of minigames and missions. Kids will undoubtedly enjoy the game and their parents will find themselves sucked into numerous minigames as well.
  7. Unfortunately, due to the boring missions and the slow moving character and pace, I would pass on Barnyard.

    This game is an immersive hub world with story missions that slowly unlock as you progress through the game.

    You can collect flowers, recipes and ingredients.

    You can also incrementally upgrade your nightclub over time.

    The game is very simple, easy to play, and oddly immersive. Motion controls for the wii also work surprisingly well. I feel this game was designed with motion controls in mind.

    Parts of the game feel unfinished, and there’s no real reason to craft and recipes or collect any flowers. The game could have had more depth when it came to collectibles and giving the player a reason to participate.

    Some of the mini games were a drag, and some of the missions and controls could be explained better.

    Too easy and some of the mini game controls just don't work or work intermittently. I would spend money elsewhere - luckily I rented first.
