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. Over the Hedge is definitely a better than average children's movie to game endeavor. It at least deserves a rental unless the gamer in question absolutely loved the flick.
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. The capability of two players might make all the difference; it sure makes those mini-games more fun (if not a reason for actually playing them now).
