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. Just be aware that if you’re getting it for someone as a gift, the recipient might think the game’s too hard.
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. Despicable Me will, unfortunately, move quite a few copies since it’s based on a film that sold many, many tickets.
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.
