Summary: Parents need to know that kids play this family-friendly game in the same animated world as the movie . Animals fight with golf clubs, hockey sticks, etc., but no one dies (the defeated just fade away); there's some crude humor, but none of it is too offensive.
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.
Summary: Wieder einmal liefert Activision ein Spiel basierend auf der Lizenz eines Films. Wieder mal ist es keine wirkliche Gurke, aber trotzdem auch nicht wirklich spielenswert. Wer schon vorher Software dieser Art im Laufwerk hatte, weiß was ihn erwartet.
Pros: + viel zum Freispielen
Cons: - keine Originalsprecher
- eintöniges Gameplay
- langweilige Grafik
