The Croods Prehistoric Party
18 July 2013
Excerpt: The Croods: Prehistoric Party! is another great family game to play this Summer without paying too much. The title combines party and board game elements with the world imagined in DreamWork's new film, The Croods . Players who have ever ventured into Mario Party sessions or played similar games will feel right at home in The Croods: Prehistoric Party!
Lifeless party game with mild cartoon shenanigans.

Summary: Parents need to know that The Croods: Prehistoric Party is a simple party game based on a film release of the same name. It's best experienced in groups of up to four players so that kids can exploit its potential for social gaming. There is some cartoonish violence, but it is very mild: plants making chomping motions near skittering players, and characters pushing each other around or bopping one another to make them fall down.
Excerpt: Hand held versions of games are generally different than their home console counterparts. Especially when we are talking movie based games. The Croods Prehistoric Party on the Nintendo 3DS is not that different from the Wii U/Wii version. The biggest difference is the hand held version is a single player experience.
Summary: For the right price and the right audience, Prehistoric Party could be a fine way to pass the afternoon, but aside from the presentation, it's mostly a disappointing experience. The mini-games on offer vary wildly in quality, and even the best of them are derivative and largely forgettable, while the board game frame is slow and uneventful.
Excerpt: Non è una novità che i videogiochi rilasciati di licenza ufficiale finiscono quasi sempre per rivelarsi delle vere e proprie delusioni. Sono estremamente convinto che gran parte del budget in mano allo studio di sviluppo venga utilizzato per acquistare la licenza e che rimangano solo gli “spiccioli” da investire per il gioco vero e proprio e per i suoi contenuti.
