BlueTongue Made this?

The movie itself is the child of Over the Hedge and Animal House, in my opinion. The game itself is "Bully" by RockStar Games, meets Nickolodeon.
Why Bully? The controls, the gameplay, the mapping, everything from the core idea of how to set the game out reminds me of Bully aside from Graphics, Storyline, and Content Level.
However, comparisons aside, what people want to know about this game would be:
1) Does it suck?
That's like asking a racecar driver if Pro-Golf is fun. Try it out and expand your gaming, or read on.
2) What's the gameplay like?
Filled with mini-games, parlor-game style missions and activities, and goofy allusions to things kids wouldn't catch.
3) Is the music the drone of the bees?
Try a mix of country and rock, where the first image from this game that will enter your head is that of a Cow putting on Sunglasses Matrix Style to the song "Bad to the Bone."
4) What's movement like? (There are gamers who prefer not to play games where you can't move quickly.)
You can sprint, you can jump, you can ride bikes and upgrade the bikes, and my favorite form of transportation, sky-rocketing chickens.
5) Lastly, but not least, do you play as one of the movie characters?
Nope. You create a cow, male or female, and the breed of it. It works out well, though.
My only surprise is that "BlueTongue Made This?". Reason: They've made Jurassic Park a game, Starship Troopers a game, and have turned over a popular leaf in the Nickolodeon gaming.
Last words of wisdom: Coming from a guy who plays Grand theft Auto: San Andreas, gun'em downs and shoot'em ups in any form, and the obvious variety of RPG's, this is actually something I'm glad I rented.
Barnyard party tonight!!

I am however a cow fan and I love being able to pick my cow and do fun things with her.
The only problem we have and it may be a glitch is that we have 4 different cow files for this game on the same memory card and they seem to overlap.When my husband tried to furnish the barn at the beginning of his game it wouldn't let him because all theitems he was supposed to buy were sold already and in the barn as I have completed 78% of the decorating on my file and when our daughter upgraded her bike we all ended up with the rose bike. We will try with new memory cards and see if that fixes it. GREAT GAME!!!!!!!!!

My 8-year old daughter played this for three or four hours straight (didn't realize she was still in there playing!). Highlights include "tease the mailman" (just like the movie!) and the pool game in the barnyard... now that I think about it, I enjoy playing this one too (but only when the kids are around).
Boy Cows Squirt Milk???

This game changed my opinion of "kids games" this game on the GameCube is just a fun on the Wii. With the Wii, as you know, you get more action steps and more involved in the game. In the GameCube version it was just as much fun.
It was funny to see the cows squirt milk and my male friends just wanted to play it because of this interesting new feature of male cows. :)
There is a plot, and it takes you through one thing to the next easily. The best part was the Races. I like that you have a goal and must meet the goal before you move on. The sad thing was... well I just cant give it away.
This is a horrible game!!!!!!!

This is a wonderful game with great animation and fun missions. I would recommend it to anyone with young kids who can read.
THE BEST GAME EVER
