Excerpt: What is it? Bee Movie Game of course takes you into the world of Dreamworks' CGI film, Bee Movie, and in doing so it juggles plentiful game styles. From free roaming car diving to pollen collecting mini-games, it has plenty on offer, though most of your time is spent exploring a 3D world, on foot, or using the power of your bee's wings.
Excerpt: The graphics in Bee Movie Game look pretty good. Although I haven't yet seen the film, they seem to mimic it quite well. Everything is bright and shiny, although some things do look blocky. Overall, characters look good and represent their movie counterparts well. When you venture into areas outside of the hive in New York City such as flower gardens, parks, houses and city blocks, everything looks really nice.
Summary: Bee Movie Game on the DS has nice 3D graphics, but it's short, repetitive, and lacking in variety.
Pros: Detailed, bright 3D graphics, Simple flight controls let you dash and change altitude with ease
Cons: Missions mainly involve delivering and fetching items, Barry can't do much except fly, dash, hide, and grab stuff, The animations are crummy and the story scenes are just stills, You can complete every mission and side quest in less than three hours
Summary: Younger players will enjoy the variety and sandbox-style freedom of Bee Movie Game.
Pros: Dogfighting wasps and dodging cars as a bee is neat, Two dozen different jobs and minigames to kill time with, The bee's-eye slant given to the humor and visuals is interesting, Good for younger players
Cons: Missions and minigames won't challenge anyone past their teen years, Graphics don't push any of the systems the game is on
