Barnyard

Game Vortex
1 November 2007
  • Excerpt: Animated movies are using more computers, so it's no surprise that computer games can feel more like movies these days. Barnyard does a really nice job bringing you to the farm and letting you "get your cow on." The graphics are top shelf, including neat particle effects from things floating around in the air. There are few seams showing in this 3D world and even fewer camera issues. The camera isn't perfect and has a tendency to need correcting from time to time.

  • Excerpt: Well, here we go again: the latest bad game I’ve had to play through (on two different platforms, yet) has made its unwelcome presence a part of the Nintendo Wii launch. The polygonic masterwork I refer to at the moment is none other than THQ’s Barnyard . That’s right, the one I washed my hands of last time around.

  • Summary: Like most of the other GameCube games that have been ported to the Wii, Barnyard takes advantage of the Wii's motion-sensitive controls and has undergone a modest graphical upgrade, but it's otherwise identical to the original GameCube release. However, unlike many of those other games, the waggle controls in Barnyard work great and give the game a more hands-on feel, while the uptick in visual quality makes the farm and the characters on it look that much nicer.
  • Pros: Immerses you in the movie's skewed world, Refreshing open-ended design, Dozens of minigames and helper missions, Lots of visual and auditory detail, Wii version's motion-sensitive controls give the game a hands-on feel
  • Cons: Minigames aren't all that unique or challenging, Not enough spoken dialogue, Better controls and graphical upgrades don't fully justify the Wii version's higher price tag

Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic

GamingMedia.de
24 April 2010
  • Conclusion: Mit etwas gutem Willen könnte man Ubisoft eigentlich zugute halten, dass man seine Fans keinesfalls vergessen hat und diese weiterhin mit Randgruppen-Titeln versorgt. Angesichts des Gebotenen würde solch ein Lob allerdings wie reiner Hohn in den Ohren der zahlenden Kunden klingen, da es im Prinzip kaum einen Grund gibt, Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic irgendjemandem ans Herz zu legen.

  • Conclusion: Im Grunde macht der Tierisch Verrückte Bauernhof nichts katastrophal falsch. Einige Kleinigkeiten, wie der frustig hohe Glücksfaktor beim Billard um einen Highscore zu erreichen, zu wenig Witz in der Erzählung oder teilweise etwas zu lange Wege fallen kaum ins Gewicht, womit man diese Filmversoftung dem angepeilten Hauptpublikum (also Kindern) ohne große Bedenken gönnen kann, doch genau da liegt auch die Crux.

Der tierisch verrückte Bauernhof

Wii-Front.de
24 February 2007
  • Excerpt: Schon im letzten Jahr lief in den Kinos der Film "Der tierisch verrückte Bauernhof" an. Das dazu passende Multiplatform-Game ist nun auch für Nintendos im Dezember erschienene Konsole Wii veröffentlicht worden. Wenn man das Cover betrachtet und im Internet Screenshots beäugt, macht das Spiel schnell den Eindruck eines Spieles für die jüngere Fangemeinde. Doch kann das Spiel auch ältere Spieler zumindest im Ansatz überzeugen?
