Excerpt: It’s summer again, which can only mean one thing – big summer movies. And, with every big summer movie comes the inevitable licensed tie-in. Unfortunately, most of these games are hit with the mandate to “Just ship it on time”, which often results in really bad games.
Conclusion: If you have a child that enjoyed the film you may want to consider picking this one up. The characters are cute and the gameplay is very accessible, which are key components in a kid's game. I wouldn't expect it to last them incredibly long because it does get tiring very quickly.
Conclusion: A prime example that even partnerships like Activision and DreamWorks (which has turned out some fairly enjoyable licensed games) can go wrong. This is a cash-in, and a painfully mediocre one at that.
Conclusion: While it brings nothing remarkably new to the table, Over The Hedge enhances slightly upon its genre and is a contender for a worthy purchase. Those who loved the movie and cannot get enough of it will most likely enjoy this title.
Conclusion: Merely 'doing the job' might offend the proud sensibilities of the gaming purist, but Over The Hedge is quite obviously a decent attempt to make the most of the license, and isn't the bloodless exercise that we feared it would be.
Conclusion: Kortom, de game is op zich geinig gedaan, met name als je de film hebt gezien. Ook met de 30 levels en alle unlockables ben je wel even bezig. Echter door de stuntelige camera, je kamikazevriendje en soms het lage niveau zorgen er voor dat dit toch niet zo leuk is als gehoopt.
