Players experience all four main characters from the movie - Carl, Russell, Dug the lovable dog or Kevin the prehistoric bird - while playing as a single-player or with a friend cooperatively throughout the entire game. Players encounter exciting, new environments as they navigate through treacherous jungle terrains, battle dangerous creatures and trek the slippery slopes of the Amazonian Tepuis. In addition, the game also features multi-player game modes, including an epic level that will allow up to four players to compete in aerial combat. [THQ] Expand

    If you enjoyed Pixar’s brilliant film, Up the game will keep the good times rolling for the younger audience for another few hours.
  2. At the end of the day I would have to recommend this game only to those families who want the chance to relive some of the movie, or to those looking for a game that won't challenge the little ones (or themselves for that matter of fact). Everyone else should be wary of what the game provides though.

    Fun, mainly because of its emphasis on cooperation. [June 2009, p.89]
  4. Overall, I found Up for the Wii to be an average movie tie-in game that doesn't do much to impress.
  5. The charm of the film's characters isn't enough to save this simple, tedious platformer.
  6. Even by licensed game standards, UP is surprisingly poor. The design is uninspired, but more importantly, it just isn’t fun or satisfying to play.

    A high quality game with alot of polish. A great value, for a retail price of $39.99 you get a lot of game. Multiplayer is fun but the coopA high quality game with alot of polish. A great value, for a retail price of $39.99 you get a lot of game. Multiplayer is fun but the coop gameplay is the best. You can pick up a controller and join in with another player at any point in the game. This is great for parents wanting an easy way to play with their kids or help them through the game. A great game for any family. This is not just another licensed game it is actually good on its own merits. Expand
