Summary: i've played a lot of games. and recently, many AAA titles have felt like a bit of a chore. however, this title really captures the essence of the movie. and although not driven by the movie's story, it's really engaging. previous warner bros releases have been sub-par and I almost didn't want to buy this game because of this reason, but i am very happy with this one.
Summary: As a fan of the film, I really wanted to love this game. It certainly has some charm, but frustrating control mechanics, an unfriendly camera, and repetitive level design and boss battles really draw away from the experience. There is a lot of collecting and a central hub area (much like in Toy Story 3), but the game doesn't offer much beyond that. I will say that the regular gameplay is thrown a curve here and there with riding the Wild Things and sailing.
