Well, Around 10 hours, less or more for the 1000 / 100%. Mostly a game for kids, but an average game for teenagers or adults too. ~ StoodBridge.
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 of “Hi, I’m Jerry Seinfeld, and I’m in this movie. Scratch that, I AM THIS MOVIE!
Pros: Diverse gameplay modes, narration throughout
Cons: Weak structuring, overreliance on Quick Time Events, sub-par graphics
Excerpt: What is it? Bee Movie Game of course takes you into the world of Dreamworks' CGI film, Bee Movie, and in doing so it juggles plentiful game styles. From free roaming car diving to pollen collecting mini-games, it has plenty on offer, though most of your time is spent exploring a 3D world, on foot, or using the power of your bee's wings.
Excerpt: Bee advised, you will bee bee-sieged with a bevy of bee-related jokes and puns in this game.

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. Just take into consideration the controls before you buy though. If they’ve played the 360 enough then it should be fine, but if they haven’t… well… I’ll leave that up to you.
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. And while the graphics while inside of Hive City won’t necessarily push the Xbox 360 hardware to its limits, the exterior levels actually look extremely crisp and colorful. There were a few instances of frame-rate drops, which made the game stagger a bit at times, but it generally recovered quickly.
