Summary: Parents need to know that Despicable Me: The Game -- Minion Mayhem is a completely different experience than the Despicable Me game that is available for Wii, PSP, and PS2. This DS version is a strategy-based game.
Conclusion: Overall, if you like Lemmings and the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series, then you probably won’t mind this game. It’s frustratingly hard but well-made; easy to pick up but quickly repetitive. There are better games that are similar, and though this one has faults, it’s not horrible.
Conclusion: The Nintendo DS is home to many quality titles, but it’s also plagued by store shelves stocked with endless schlockware with bright, colorful appearances that lend themselves to impulse purchases made by an uninformed audience.
Excerpt: is based off of, I can’t really attest to how much of a movie spin-off game it is. In fact, the game’s tie to the movie almost feels like an afterthought when you actually play through the game.
Conclusion: Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem may appeal more to a younger audience than it did to me, but I don't think anyone will enjoy the frustrating lack of control that you have over the minions as they aimlessly wander to their deaths.
Conclusion: Experience the thrill of being a downright Despicable super villain. Based on Universal's animated feature film Despicable Me, Despicable Me: The Game lets players of all ages become the film's criminal mastermind Gru as he plots and steals his way to greatness.
