Very Good

One of the best platformers this gen

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.

Overall, a very enjoyable experience.

Fun and complex game, basically a giant puzzle

I am quite surprised by the amount of work put into this game. It has a very good variety of weapons, enemies, creativity, missions, collectibles, power ups, and everything else you could want.

This game is however a bit more difficult than you may anticipate. I put almost 8 hours just to beat the single player campaign on normal. The achievements are also not easy to get, as they normally are for these kiddie games.

You basically play as Darwin, the main man guinea pig. He's got a team of special rodent agents that help him, and a tiny recon fly that you can use to fly around and get in tight spaces.

You have to travel through vents, climb walls, use your pet fly to get secrets, and usually solve a giant puzzle in each room you go into. For example, you will watch a cut scene of a laser beam guarding a door, and they quickly zoom in on a vent on the ceiling. You will need to find a way into the vent, to bypass the laser beam, to ultimately deactivate it to get into that room.

This game is definitely worth renting, or even buying if you can get it for around $15 like I did. It has a good amount of replay value to get stuff on harder difficulties, as well as fully upgrading everything to get more achievements. Fun game even if you're like 20.

This one was disappointing. Rented this for our 8 year old. He really like it at first, but then the puzzles started to get more and more complex and he needed my help to figure them out. He's a bright kid and has played many similar video games, so that's not the issue. Eventually as he got farther into the game (I think he was fairly close to the end- some kind of big room where you had to turn on some generators or something) the puzzles got quite complex, and because I didn't have time to re-do the whole level with him, even I couldn't solve it. After we tried several times and I even found several walk-throughs on the web and we still couldn't do it, we got frustrated and sent it back. I wouldn't recommend this one for eight year olds unless you're prepared to play it with your kid.
