I went into this game thinking it was going to be another lame movie tie-in experience. What I found was a deep, engaging, fun old school platformer with great visuals and clever puzzles. One of the best platformers I have played in years. Definitely worth a rental, if not a purchase. 3D mode is nice, but you lose most of the great color the game has to offer. I played the first couple of levels with the glasses on, but had to take them off because of the loss of color. The colorful surroundings make this game. So, it is a trade-off really. It is fun in 3D though.
The game is about 10 hours long, more if you try to find all of the hidden objects and play on hard to get all of the achievements. I got 560 achievement points without too much trouble.
This game is absolutely hilarious and alot of fun to play. Only thing was that when playing in 3-D and wearing the 3-D glasses, I could only take the 3-D gameplay for so long. After wearing 3-D glasses and playing in 3-D for over an hour, it started to bother my eyes. Now that might just be me, but you have to try it for yourself!
All of the characters are hilarious and there is lots of comedy to this game, which makes it even more fun to play. The enemies you come across may be frustrating to beat because you need to find out their weaknesses before being able to defeat them successfully. One thing I found sort of difficult was defeating all the different electronic enemies. Each enemy has its own weak spot, and in order for you to find it, you need to scan them with your scan gun for the helpful information. In order to scan the enemy, you need a good view of them, so if you're not careful, the enemy might throw one of their weapons at you and your health will decrease. I would try and get on shelves or hide behind something, and then get to a good view and scan the enemy. From there, you need to protect yourself as much as possible and attack the enemy at the right time in order to defeat them successfully.
The kiosks are very helpful, but sometimes they're located in the worst possible positions in the missions. Be careful of enemies sneaking up on you while at the kiosk, always watch your back!
Now before playing this game you need to understand that this game is a kids game and if you are above the age of about 12 or so this game isn't going to entertain you for long periods of time. I rented this game mainly just for the gamerscore and wasn't expecting the game to be anything that would appeal to me. Now I've never seen the movie the very first mission thought was really fun just because I love how it was stealthy. The game overall will entertain you but defiantly keep it just to a rent. The graphics arnt the best but there good enough. If you are under the age of 12 or are thinking about getting it for somebody else under that age then it may be a buy. Defiantly one of the better kids games out there next to toy story 3.
