  • Excerpt: Just like a factory assembly line, Activision pumps out yet another movie based game just in time for its big screen debut. Next up, Twentieth Century Fox’s Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. I was fortunate, or unfortunate depending on how you look at it, to review the Xbox 360 version of the game. Having played many Activision movie based games over the past couple of years I have learned to keep my expectations realistic and take the game for what it is worth.

  • Conclusion: It will not take very long to finish this game, unless you are particularly uncoordinated or a child (or both, which my son is and he struggled but he'll be two soon, by which time i would expect him to have got the hang of it!) Gloriously exceeds very low expectations to be a solid, but unspectacular game. Felt the same when i finished as i did after Kung Fu Panda, which is no bad thing.

  • Excerpt: Being an ardent ice age series fan I really wanted to try my hand on this one, and trust me this game is almost exactly modeled on the movie. It’s vibrant and it would really appeal to the kids and even if you’re a teen it’s sure to bring out the kid in you at play. It’s got a plethora of colorful characters in a wide range of game play styles which include action, platforming, shooting and racing.

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a straight-forward children�s release that doesn�t push the envelope in any way. It�s a by-the-numbers movie-to-game title that offers little in terms of surprise, virtually no challenge, and ultimately is a forgettable experience. The multiplayer modes and collectables will keep kids entertained longer than they should be, and because of that I�d say this one at least deserves a rent if you have kids who loved the film.

  • Conclusion: A pleasing adaptation of a family-favorite franchise. All around good fun and despite the short length, there is plenty of extras to come back to. Not exactly a blockbuster title, but a nice addition to a child's catalogue for sure. The older crowd can at least appreciate it for a bit of fun and an easy gamerscore boost.
