Ice Age 3

Nintendo World Report
16 August 2009
  • Summary: Despite its licensed pedigree, this game borrows from the best.
  • Pros: Great graphics and voicework, Huge variety in gameplay, Involves dinosaurs and ice age megafauna, Lots of multiplayer games
  • Cons: Only one sequence with Diego? For shame!, Platforming sequences involve a few cheap deaths, Using Z + C to evade is initially awkward

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
4 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Usually movie tie in games are pretty bad. Remember Street Fighter: The Movie: The Game? No? Count yourself lucky as nobody else should either. Most of these games suffer by trying too hard to be exactly like the movie without actually having the movie to base it off of. There are some exceptions, but those are few and far between.

Movie game features mild violence and plenty of play modes.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is based on the movie of the same name and is clearly targeted at children who watch the film or who are fans of the Ice Age franchise. Unfortunately there is a disconnect between the movie's target age of 6 and the ESRB's rating that this game is appropriate for ages 10+.

  • Excerpt: Games based on children animated films generally don't fare too well in the critic's eye. I for one do not have a problem recognizing the fact that these games have an intended audience and should be reviewed as such. That said, even children have taste – and they can be among the harshest critics when something fails to live up to their expectations. Does Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs fill the video game needs of the film's fans?

Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs review

Gameplanet
21 July 2009
  • Excerpt: A children's game that for once delivers the movie experience to the console. Its initial slow pace soon delivers a lot of fun and humour that you would expect from a game of the movie.
  • Pros: Most of the movie characters make an appearance in the game, and the regular in-game movie clips help to bind together a well polished children's title.
  • Cons: A slow start may put off some players, and the really young set may well struggle with some of the controls.

  • Conclusion: Ice Age 3 kommt nicht mehr an den Überraschungserfolg des zweiten Teils heran. Das liegt zum einen am redundanten, uninspirierten Leveldesign der Hüpfpassagen und zum anderen daran, dass die Steuerung von Sid und Buck einfach nicht mehr so viel Spaß macht wie die von Scrat. Das Plagiatskabinett, das uns Eurocom zwischen diesen Levels anbietet, ist eine willkommene Abwechslung, sorgt für überraschend viel Spielspaß und erschafft letztendlich einen Genremix, den es seit...
