Excerpt: March of the Penguins… sucks. Before even reading this review, just
know what you are coming into - the worst Game Boy Advance game ever
conceived. The developers may not be known for games of this low
quality, but March of the Penguins is a shameless licensed game. Not to
imply that licensed games are inherently bad; games like this are just
bad because not only are they bad choices for a developer to make a

Excerpt: Just as the title suggests, the video game rendition of March of the Penguins is based on the award-winning film documentary about emperor penguins. In the game, you help the tuxedo-colored birds migrate inland, forage for food, and care for their young by solving puzzles and navigating mazes set in the harsh Antarctic wasteland. It may seem silly that a company would make a video game out of a documentary, but the puzzles and subject matter actually mesh together fine.
Pros: Interpreting the movie as a series of environmental puzzles is a clever concept, Lemmings-style puzzles are intricate and challenging, The penguins are cute and look funny when they waddle
Cons: Lemmings-style puzzles are too challenging for younger players, It's a joke how easy the maze chapters are, A game like this should offer dozens more puzzles, Graphics and audio are much too plain
