Excerpt: Every time I receive a game to review that is based on a movie I start to tremble as so many of them have been quite hastily done. It seems that so many of these games are rushed out the door in order to meet the release date of the movie they are based upon.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Wall-E is a much better game than many could have hoped for. It has all the charm of it's main protagonist, and although far too easy most people will want to play through the main game twice. The local multiplayer options are also great fun.
Summary: Players will take control of WALL-E and EVE through a fast-paced adventure based on the upcoming Disney/Pixar film. The game will allow fans to relive some of the movie’s most thrilling moments as they explore 10 worlds filled with non-stop action and adventure, along with head-to-head multiplayer...
Summary: Parents need to know that the setting of this game (which is based on the movie) creates a bleak statement of the future of Earth because it shows a world ravaged by garbage to the point of inhabitability.
Excerpt: What is it? WALL.E is an action platformer based on the Disney Pixar movie of the same name. You play as the trash crushing robot WALL.E and are joined by the egg-shaped EVE. WALL.E sections play as a cross between traditional platform gameplay and third-person shooter action.
Summary: The main reason Pixar movies are so revered is that they are able to appeal to both adults and children at the same time. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the games based on these movies.
Pros: Inviting presentation, Well-constructed cutscenes, Flying sections are fun
Cons: Gameplay is too simple, Shooting sections seem out of place, Worthless multiplayer, Unlockables aren't exciting
Conclusion: Yet another Movie tie-in falls victim to an evident lack of effort or ambition from it's developer and so ends up being nothing more than the latest in a long line of crudely cobbled together cash-ins that are an insult to gaming itself.
Pros: The music is reasonably decent, Controlling Eve redeems gameplay slightly, I have nothing else good to say about this, so I won't.
Cons: Rinse and repeat repetitive gameplay, Catastrophic camera, God damned awful graphics, Lack of control.
Excerpt: What with Kung Fu Panda bucking the trend and providing the first genuinely fun cartoon movie tie-in for ages, you'll forgive us for approaching Wall-E with our guard down. Alas, with the videogame companion to Pixar's brilliant animated box office hit, it's very much business as usual.
Conclusion: This game hasn’t popped, not on this reviewer anyway. It’s a shame because Wall-E has some great ideas, great inclusions like Wii Zapper compatibility, 4 player multiplayer, plenty of gameplay styles and nice controls but all these things don’t work to the level they should.
Pros: Variety a ‘plenty, 4 player Multiplayer, Nice controls….
Cons: Until they glitch, Bad amounts of lag, Bland
