Showing 1-10 of 23
Misleading, disappointing, irritating waste of time!

Summary: The Nemo's Underwater World of Fun game disk enclosed in with the movie DVD, was a big disappointment. My young kids were very excited then very upset. Until I read user reviews here on AMAZON, I thought I had a malfunctioning game rather than a DEMO disk on which only 2 of the 6 activities were accessible, rendering the prizes unwinable and the main games unplayable. And one of the 2 accessible activities, the Tank Gang music maker, seems buggy!
Summary: We bought this for our five-year-old, who loved the movie. Why is it that all Disney games turn into annoying (and cloying) lead-ins or promos for the movie? Why do we have to watch endless clips of it? The games seem kind of uneven (some way too hard, others too easy), and sometimes the software seems to get 'stuck' (we need to back out and repeat the objective to get it to work).
Summary: I just loved the movie, so naturally I bought the game. My sis and I have had these little, ummm...."problems" with games for kids 4+. We can't win them!! The older kid's games are easier. But that's what makes this game fun. I still can't win the "Surfin' With Crush" level though. "Nemo's Underwater World of Fun" actually has a story to it. Nemo wants to prove to his dad that he can move around just as well as any other fish.
Summary: Our version of Finding Nemo: UWF isn't much FUN. I'm even suspecting that we have a "lemon"--there is no way little children could ever "win" anything with the only 2 items that will work on this CD. The EAC game is OK for a little while, but not when the points or other "wins" don't ever really add up to anything. Then there is the music, which, again can be fun to change around a little, etc.
Summary: I can't believe how bad this video game was. The makers clearly put minimal thought into making it and just wanted to capitalize on the popularity of the movie. The whole game can be finished in one sitting by a four year old. I played with my nephew and kept hoping that it would get better, but it doesn't. The games are all too easy and not that interesting. Don't waste your money on this one!
The other version? Poor Quality Control Problem....

Summary: This is yet another pc game that could have been so good...The problem? Like the other 3 disney pc games we have, we had to go on-line to reconfigure our computer!!! It seems to be the SOUND that creates problems. We bought the version for older kids, after reading the reviews here. Guess what? The voices for Nemo and others cannot be understood. It's as if someone put an old record on the wrong speed...high speed....everyone talks like the chipmunks!
Summary: Loved the movie, and thought that it might be a way for our three year old girl to get more comfortable with using the computer. She was excited too but was bored with it in an hour. The games are simplistic and in some cases poor renderings of things we've seen before, and it is only the fact that the GUI is wearying that they're any challenge. The stones game is the same as things we play with cards. The shark game is just pinball and it is difficult to control.
Summary: My 5 year old son was more excited about the game rather than the actual movie, however once we got it home and loaded I was greatly dissappointed. We were able to conquer the first adventure and then were not able to find any others. We searched and searched and even restarted the game many times. Finally, after an hour of trying to figure out what was wrong, I went to the website to find, to our dissappointmen, that it is only a cheap little demo.
Summary: My husband came home with the Finding Nemo Viedo that he got our son as a gift it had the Pc game Finding Nemo underwater adventure. It didnt tell us that this was a Demo game. My son can only play the race game with crush and listen to the tang gang sang songs. We thought we were getting the hole game the two games he can play are fun but he gets bored really easy.
