Summary: I thought I'd add a review here as we've had this game for a few months and I don't think the existing reviews explain the difficulty of the game correctly. My 4 year old happily plays all kinds of games on Wii and i-pad and normally takes to them very quickly. I myself have played games for 20 years, normally at the hardest difficilties so I'm well-versed in age appropriate gaming levels.
Summary: I liked the Ratatouille film, and this game's storyline doesn't disappoint. It is quite easy though, so would probably not recommend to 'serious' gamers. Most people could probably finish this game quite quickly. But it is cute and has good references to the film, so I enjoyed it thoroughly.
Excerpt: "If you have seen the film, which I have, you will know that this is a bit (understatement) of a silly story line. Long story short a Rat only likes top notch food. He is a chef but can't work anywhere. He finds a boy who can't cook working in the best restaurant in France and controls what he does. They become famous and the evil food critic loves the rat's ratatouille. The End. I must say I didn't find the film that great but the game wasn't bad. ...
Conclusion: Again a game based around a film, meaning the game is short. many complaints about WII games being childish and only really for the family. But the WII was origianally designed as a family console. But they have started releasing some more teen games for it. This is definetely one for the kids.
Conclusion: I really enjoyed this game and there is sufficent gameplay to keep you occupied for ages. My only problem is that i originally bought it for my 5 year old and whilst she managed to grasp the controls quite quickly she soon got bored. In the end she only wanted to play the multiplayer 'boat' game. If you are an older fan then you'll have hours of fun but to younger kids it just doesnt hack it!
