Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs Game Review
With the box office success of “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs” firmly established, I was glad to see that Activision captured the spirit and joy of the films with the release of the video game version of the film.
All of the films characters are here, Manny, Sid, Scrat, Buck, Diego, and more and offer tons of enjoyable fun as well as multiplay mini games for the whole family. The gameplay follows the film and allows players to select from six playable characters each with their own abilities and combat style. This comes in very handy due to the puzzle solving and side scrolling action of some of the games sequences.
With over 15 levels of gameplay, the action and fun does not let up, and thanks to the voice work provided by most of the original cast, the laughs and smiles come at a steady pace.
What really makes the game shine is the inclusion of several mini games which allow 2-4 players to compete with one another in some fantastic competitions which extend the joy of the game well beyond after the completion of the story campaign.
The graphics and sound of the game are solid, and the controls are perfect for younger gamers who naturally are the intended audience for the game. Older gamers may find the game a bit simplistic but they are not the core audience for the game.
If you have younger gamers, make sure to include this title to your collection.
