Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – Review
25 July 2006
Excerpt: Do videogames based on movies really need to hit shelves the day their films open? "Of course!" answer marketing teams everywhere. What better time for games like Van Helsing or Fantastic 4 to shake their moneymakers than when their companion films are still big news, burning brightly in people's minds? While this practice makes good money for game companies, it doesn't make good games.
Excerpt: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 's developers managed to capture the look and feel of Tim Burton's vision throughout the game, especially where the cinematics are concerned. The voiceover work is truly top notch, in many cases nearly indistinguishable from the movie's actual cast, many of whom did lend their voices to the game.
Conclusion: I can�t imagine kids even wanting to play this game and it is a weak effort to make money from a popular movie license. When a game is released in the state that this one is in all it does is serve as clutter on the store shelves and bargain bins. In the end this one is a definite skipper and should be avoided at all costs.
Conclusion: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory pleasantly surprised us, we honestly thought it was going to be a pile of rubbish but it turned out to be quite a good little game that appeals to the young and the old, it brings back the real lost in another world feeling that so many games nowadays are missing.
Conclusion: In all, this is rather what I would expect from this kind of movie tie-in. I’d find something else to play and go watch both films and read the book, plus its sequel. Much more entertaining.
Pros: Voice work., Some cutscenes., Um… it’s cheerful and upbeat.
Cons: Gameplay problems., The vague goals don’t suit a kid's game., Camera., Visuals.

Excerpt: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory er det uundgåelige forsøg på at score lidt ekstra penge på Tim Burtons film af samme navn. Det er et platformspil, som ikke tilbyder andet end et navn, ungerne kan genkende, og en farvestrålende forside. Vi siger det som det er indenfor. De fleste har nok set klip fra filmen Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, men det er nok de færreste der ved, at filmen er baseret på en bog fra 1964, der er skrevet af den kendte børnebogsforfatter Roald...
