Summary: I bought this game because I was drunk. It's the worst game I've ever played, but I admit I am not the intended audience. I gave it 2 stars because SOME kids may enjoy it. It has pretty shallow gameplay (jump, shoot/punch [same button], and interact), awful camera angles (expect to die many times while platforming), and hilariously holds your hand (90% of the way through, my sidekick was still reminding me that [circle] is the button to pick up a gun).
Summary: First off, the ONLY reason I played this game was for the Platinum trophy. You can literally beat the entire game and get the platinum trophy in under 3 hours. The game was extremely short, super repetitive, and and an overall borefest. I would only advise playing this game for trophies and you should probably just get from gamefly so you don't have to pay for it. I can't imagine the suckers who paid full price for this game when it was initially released....
Summary: The game has cute graphics, and the levels are kind of fun. But that's the only reason I gave this game 3 stars. The controls are a little squirrely. Meaning that the controls tend to be hit and miss at times. Sometimes touchy - sometimes accurate which could be frustrating for a kid. And I agree with other reviews that there are a lot of receptive levels. But the biggest problem is that this game is just way too short. My kid went though this in 2 hours.
Fun game perfect for kids and an easy platinum trophy

Summary: The graphics were surprisingly good and the gameplay itself was enjoyable. If you have a child who loved this movie they will love the game even more, it keeps the theme and spirit of the movie alive. The game can be a bit short but other than that there really isn't anything to complain about. Controls are intuitive, the gameplay progresses nicely, and the trophies come fast and easy.
Summary: Firstly, this isn't a terrible game. And it isn't broken. It isn't overly difficult and your lives are unlimited. It's also pretty easy to platinum and looks pretty good. But that's all the good I have to report. Most of the bad lies in the control scheme. Most platforming gamers rely heavily on the shadow of their character while jumping to get an idea of where they are while crossing obstacles such as those where a fall could kill you.
