Excerpt: I’m going to try my hardest not to make any obvious jokes here, but it’s not easy when the absurd amount of possible jokes are the only remarkable thing about a game. It’s based on a movie that didn’t do very well with the critics, was only a moderate success, and failed to ever get past the feeling...
Pros: Diverse gameplay modes, narration throughout
Cons: Weak structuring, overreliance on Quick Time Events, sub-par graphics

Conclusion: For the common gamer, this is a typical movie licensed game, but it does have an attitude to it that upswings the value to good rather than bad. For $49.99, it might be best to avoid, but if the movie was great and your child loves it, it might be okay.
Conclusion: As far as movie-based video games go, the Bee Movie Game isn’t really bad. The game does a good job of presenting the look and feel of the movie.
