Summary: I bought this game for my partner to use on his Sony PSP at the same time as purchasing it for our children to use on their Nintendo DS. What a difference in the two formats, the PSP has more adventure & better levels, where the Nintendo DS version seems quite limited. If you have a choice I urge you to buy the Sony PSP version as this is cool one!
Excerpt: "...ahead of me whereas with Ratatouille the angle shifts around a lot. The sound effects are pretty good and you can even hear the footsteps of insects and small creatures. ==MY THOUGHTS== The game is addictive but as I have already said it can be frustrating and can take awhile to master. All in all a good game but really only for hardcore gamers. The game is for ages 3 & up but I doubt very much that my 3 year old could play this game! I am 30 ...
Ratatouille (PSP): Ratatouille - Similar to the film
9 January 2010
Summary: Ratatouille for the PSP is a 3D adventure game that is pretty true to the Disney/Pixar film of the same name. The story is original enough as you have to help Remy the rat pick his way through over thirty levels to save chef Linguini. It is a decent length and although it doesn't do anything different to any other platform game really, it is interesting enough and has the right balance of puzzles and eradicating enemies in the levels.
Summary: If you don't really expect too much from the game, then I think it's quite enjoyable! Yes, it is a bit repetitive, but it is also quite challenging in some parts. The graphics and movements are good, and I feel it's a good game just to play about on.
Running and jumping in 3D, picking stuff - will it ever end?

Summary: As written above, all these games seem to be the same - I played IceAge2 on a PC before, the only difference seems to be the scenery and nuts to be picked up instead of cheese here. The kids like it, but I have to do the more difficult bits (and they are many, already at 25% of the game). One cool feature (not advertised in the manual at all!) are the recepies you collect. They are real, you can actually cook stuff using these.
Summary: The problem with these movie ports, especially for blockbusters like Ratatouille, is that they are guaranteed success, mainly from a younger audience. Because of this, the programmers get lazy, they dont put any effort into graphics, sound, gameplay or plot. That is why this sort of games are generally below par, and why the more serious gamers shun them without a glance. This is no different, even though it is an above average port of a movie license.
Summary: Ratatouille is a brilliant game. However, as an adult I could not get onto other levels due to the difficulty of the manuoeuvres involved. This game is aimed at 3+ which I dispute. The scenary is brilliant and almost on a par with the film, the characters charming and realistic. Remy the main character is lifelike and very appealing.
