The Tale of Despereaux

  • Excerpt: Not too long ago I took my daughter to see the movie The Tale of Despereaux. It was a fun little movie with a heart warming story that sucked me in from the get go. In conjunction with the release of the movie Atari has released The Tale of Despereaux for the DS. Being a movie based game, my expectations were quite low as far too often video games of these types are rushed and disappoint more often than not.

The Tale of Despereaux Review

Better than the console game, a fun side-scrolling puzzler.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a video game based on the movie The Tale of Despereaux. While it is a side-scrolling platform game with envionmental puzzles, it also has some combat, so if you are looking for a violence-free game, this isn't it. The violence is very mild and involves the lead character, Despereaux the mouse, wielding a sewing needle sword to dispatch bugs and other creatures that get in his way. The hit creatures fade away, without any blood.

Tale of Despereaux, The

20 January 2009
  • Conclusion: Десперо - так зовут главного героя игры, основывающейся на фильме, который в свою очередь базируется на произведении The Tale of Despereaux писательницы . Наш протагонист - мышь. Нет, не компьютерная, а самая что ни на есть настоящая (хотя и виртуальная). Главная отличительная черта характера грызуна - храбрость, и этот факт серьезно озадачивает его боязливых соплеменников, и даже серый хвостатый Совет!
  • Pros: качественный перевод; неплохой саундтрек.
  • Cons: скучный геймплей, неумело скопированный с Prince of Persia; строптивая камера плетёт интриги с враждебным интерфейсом; слабая графика; адская сложность.
