Excerpt: Practically no-one didnít like last yearís Finding Nemo, but the quality of movie-to-game tie-ins is always less certain. Coming from Disney game veterans Travellerís Tales, expectations were set moderately high for this, and while the game is not fantastic, it is certainly up to scratch.
Excerpt: Living up to the graphical quality of a Pixar movie is no easy task, but somehow the developers of Finding Nemo have managed to do it. By no means is it anywhere near the detailed perfection that the movie achieved, but it's still pretty good, if not slightly mundane at times. Most of the levels are based on a single theme, and don't stray too much from it, though they are full of brightly colored artifacts that are sure to grab a younger audience's attention.
Excerpt: Was it even possible that Disney/Pixar's Finding Nemo would not have a videogame to complement its theatrical release? Not likely. The license was probably handed out while the movie was still in production. Perhaps even earlier, since this isn't the first time that Traveller's Tales has worked on a Disney/Pixar license, having previously done Toy Story and A Bug's Life .
Excerpt: There's a good chance that most of the reviews of Finding Nemo will start with some form of statement about the overall lack of quality in Disney-licensed games. To be honest, there hasn't really been a mass market-worthy Disney game purchase since the 16-bit days. Which is why it's so surprising how well Finding Nemo turned out.
