Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Review
9 February 2008
Conclusion: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a real shame considering the fact that the original and newly released film of the same name feature some of the most beloved characters this side of Mickey Mouse. The story of Charlie and his journey into the surreal world of Wonka is completely misrepresented in this game and it is unfortunate to see how poorly executed the experience is when compared to other child friendly offerings on the market.
Excerpt: Big summer movies mean games based on these movies. Sometimes the movies translate well into games, while others are generic games with the movie's plot shoehorned in. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory fits into the latter of these two types, but at least tries to replace the generic gameplay with an interesting premise. The results aren't what they could have been.
