Curious George Review

IGN Entertainment
6 February 2008
  • Conclusion: You might think that Curious George is the perfect introduction to video games for the 4-6 year-old range – and for the most part, it is. Still, the challenge level is so basic and repetitive that even young gamers may loose interest after the first hour or so. The other thing working against this title is the camera. It provides far too little control for a manual camera, yet isn’t really savvy enough to keep with the action when left to automatic.

Curious George

Family Friendly Gaming

  • Excerpt: Curious George books have been a favorite of this reviewer since my childhood. It was quite a joy to receive a reviewable copy of a Curious George video game on the Gameboy Advance. Namco was able to capture the little curious monkey, and the man in the yellow hat quite well. It was very nice that they stayed true to the source material, which was the movie based on the books. This is a side scrolling adventure that is for children, but not the youngest of kids.

Curious George Review

GameSpot
22 November 2006
  • Excerpt: Few children's-story characters have sustained as well and as long as Curious George. The perpetually inquisitive monkey has captured children's hearts with his good-natured antics since the early 1940s. Odd as it may sound, it has taken until 2006 for a full-length animated film based on Curious George to find its way to theaters. With the film opening this week, Namco has released a new game based on the film for every current-generation console and the PC.
  • Pros: Nicely cel-shaded character graphics, Solid voice acting, Some animated sequences from the film
  • Cons: Gameplay is mechanically sound but terribly oversimplified, Only three hours long, Minigames are insipidly repetitive

PocketBike Racer Review

IGN Entertainment
20 November 2006
  • Conclusion: There’s enough to like about Pocketbike Racer to warrant the purchase. Don’t go thinking that it’s going to replace Need for Speed: Carbon or anything, but it can provide for a few hours of fun, even more if you’re got an Xbox Live Gold account to play on. Even though the look of the game can’t compare to the rest of the Xbox 360 library, for under five bucks, the food you eat to get this game will more detrimental to you than actually playing the game.

  • Excerpt: Though Curious George for Xbox does a good job of visually emulating the re-envisioned, cel-shaded, computer-imaging imaginings of the new movie based on the old kids books, to play it is probably too difficult for its intended audience.
