In generally, it was actually impressive for what would normally just be blown off as some kid's game. It was fun and immersive and amusing, and well worth the time.

This game offers a lot of wholesome fraternity silliness. Slapstick humor mixed up with hip, crazy characters makes for some relaxed playtime with no pressure to beat the clock or otherwise kill yourself with insanely difficult quests. Once in a while, it’s good to let yourself play something for the sake of having fun without a hitch. The pricing is very reasonable considering how many games within games this title offers. Just be an animal and let yourself go for a while. Just don’t do when humans are watching. That’s the only rule in the Barnyard!

Fans van de film zullen ongetwijfeld in hun nopjes zijn met dit computergame van Barnyard. Het open einde is een verademing, veel van de minigames zijn echt wel geestig en het aparte gevoel van humor uit de film blijft overeind.

Overall, Barnyard will provide an entertaining experience for younger gamers and fans of the movie. As long as you don’t mind your kids chasing around chicks with their milk cannons, this game might keep them occupied for a while.

In any event, fans of the movie will likely be pleased with how the video game rendition of Barnyard turned out. Its open-ended design is a breath of fresh air and many of the minigames are genuinely fun. Also, the overall presentation lives up to the movie's anthropomorphic sense of humor.

Wer ein GTA möchte, der kauft sich eben ein GTA für PC, PS2 oder X-Box. Wer ein Action-Adventure mit einer großen, bunten Welt und fantastischen Kreaturen möchte, der greift zu Zelda: Twilight Princess, und Minispiel-Freunde haben bei den Multiplayer-tauglichen Rayman Raving Rabbids, Wario Ware Smooth Moves, Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz, Wii Play und Wii Sports eh die Qual der Wahl. Der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist zudem recht niedrig angesiedelt, sodass mir abschließend eigentlich nur zu sagen bleibt, dass sich THQs Tierisch Verrückter Bauernhof als Streichelzoo für die kleinen Zocker, dank GTA-Anleihen und Minispielen, angenehm von der Konkurrenz abhebt und mit ermäßigtem Eintritt (sprich: Nicht unbedingt zum Vollpreis) auch für ältere Semester einen Blick wert ist, solange sie keinen tiefschürfenden und kulturell wertvollen oder adrenalingeschwängerten Ausflug erwarten, sondern einfach einige vergnügte, sonnige Stunden verleben möchten.

There could have been a lot more in the Barnyard to keep my entertained, sometimes I get tired of helping people - mud wrestling would have been fun, or some type of multiplayer mode, where my friends could accompany me on a bike ride! Still, the open ended gameplay, the mini games and a mobile phone to call my own all contribute to a good time, especially if you've seen me in the film beforehand. Come join me at the Barnyard and share some of this apple pie Pig made. It's disgusting!

It's no modern-day classic, but Barnyard is still a good choice for young gamers, with a nice unhurried design somewhat reminiscent of Animal Crossing. Of course, it's not as ambitious, and there isn't as much to do, but there's a reasonable 10 to 15 hours of gameplay nonetheless. Anatomically incorrectness notwithstanding, Barnyard is a perfectly fine family-friendly film tie-in that you won't absolutely love, but has plenty to like anyway.

Barnyard marks one of those rare occasions where the game totally outclasses the film upon which it is based. Despite heavy repetition, you have to believe that children are going to get a kick out of the game. As a grown man, my personal experience with the game is affected by a lifetime of previous game releases, but to a young child, it may just be an amusing, interactive cartoon. I watched my nephew play the game for a while, and he seemed completely mesmerized by it. GameCube devotees have been going through some tough times lately, and while Barnyard is not necessarily a great game, it is well worth a purchase for younger gamers not yet in their teens.

If licensed games are a hot commodity in your household though, Barnyard is a fine choice to pick up, as it ensures a ton of gameplay and a surprisingly long adventure mode. Kudos to any younger gamer that actually achieves 100% completion on this one, as the game is deceptively deep. For fans of the movie, there are even bonus clips and animation tests to check out, as well as production art for both the film and the game. The package is far from perfect, but we’re willing to look past a few flaws to the inviting and entertaining core.

Speaking generally, Barnyard is little more than a series of mini-games with the barest hint of plot to tie it all together. That said, and after adjusting my expectations to an appropriately miniscule level, I must say that Barnyard actually surprised me. It’s a better game than I thought, given that it’s a licensed property developed solely to cash in on yet another lousy kiddie flick (much less one put out by Nickelodeon, the home of LazyTown). It still has its flaws (to say the least), but there are enough (relatively speaking) enjoyable missions and games to keep you coming back for a time or two.

Overall, Barnyard is a strangely compelling, if completely non-essential, diversion for adults and definitely a recommended rental for the youngsters. However, I just don't buy into this concept that kids' games need to be stupidly easy and my money is on any games-savvy brat breezing through this game with no problems whatsoever.

There is some basic reading involved usually just figuring out the rules to a mini-game. All of the games are goofy, good natured fun. Jumping over swinging pipes of water, bicycle races with other cows, throwing chicks back to the chicken coop and squirting milk at raccoons to protect the farmer's vegetables. Eventually you do take the farmers truck to chase down some of the other cows that stole the neighbor's car, and there is the Night Barn. The Night Barn is where all the animals hang out after hours. You could be picky and call it a bar, but there are no alcoholic or questionable items on the menu. It's just a bunch of party animals hanging out together.

Voilà un jeu à licence rafraîchissant ! Alors oui, il est évident qu'on n'atteint pas des sommets d'ingéniosité et de créativité, mais La Ferme En Folie a clairement de quoi occuper les cinéphiles en culotte courte. Plutôt que de reprendre le scénario du film en faisant se succéder des scènes d'action maladroites, on se retrouve ici avec une sorte de Grand Theft Auto bovin et délirant, sans violence. Tantôt drôle, tantôt poussif le jeu a pourtant ses petits moments de bravoure. Un petit jeu amusant.

If the question is whether or not Barnyard fills the void as a post-movie crowd-pleaser for PC, we can honestly say it fulfills its purpose. With a ton of mini-games (half of which are available out of the box. Nice), a huge free-roaming environment, tons of mini-quests and open-ended gameplay, Barnyard manages to pull off its design quite nicely. Having said that, the game still suffers from the normal symptoms of licensed products, lacking a little polish here, and a gameplay tweak there.

Plutôt que de reprendre le scénario du film en faisant se succéder des scènes d'action maladroites, on se retrouve ici avec une sorte de Grand Theft Auto bovin et délirant, sans violence qui plus est. De plus, l'utilisation du système de détection des mouvements de la Wii rend le soft un peu plus vivant que chez ses confrères de pixels, et ça, c'est tout de même une bonne chose. Tantôt drôle, tantôt poussif le jeu distille ses petits moments de bravoure et se laisse boire comme du petit lait. Amusant.

WiiGameDaily (Jan 18, 2007)
Despite the numerous activities offered, Barnyard runs into some problems. The item equipping system takes a lot of time to maneuver through, a frustrating task when gamers want to set up the right item. Some of the activities become monotonous, such as the mundane collecting missions and mixing together components to offer "mocktails" or recipes to other farm animals for cash. Finally, the game's content won't be for everyone, as Barnyard was clearly built for a younger audience and average players can complete the game in a few short hours. Regardless of its shortcomings, Barnyard's mini-games and activities on the farm make it worth at least a rental.

Barnyard will keep the kids busy for hours which should be enough to make any parent pick up a copy of the game, although the extra $20 for the Wii version is a little pricey. Barnyard is the typical THQ movie based game adaptation that has a lot of different genres crammed into the game, in this case the barn. Don't expect miracles, just a fun sand boxed movie based game that can hold your attention for a short while.

As ever with movie licensed games, and in particular movies for kids, there's little to get excited about in Barnyard. It's just about good enough to entertain kids who must see more of the characters from the movie, but everyone else should stay well clear.

Als neue Kuh im Stall sollen Sie im Actionspiel Der tierisch verrückte Bauernhof eine Farm aufmischen. Deshalb schubsen Sie in Minispielen andere Tiere in den Matsch oder bespritzen Sie mit Milch. Oder Sie sammeln entführte Hühnereier wieder ein. Das klingt bekloppt? Ist es auch, macht aber trotzdem eine Weile Spaß.

As far as a kid's movie to game crossover is concerned, Barnyard does decently for what it offers. The mini games are quite a bit of fun and the open-ended nature of the gameplay leaves room for a lot of depth. There are some spotty issues with the controls, the game is entirely too easy and the fetch quests get old after a while. I was pretty surprised (and disappointed) to see that the mini-games don't offer anything in the way of multiplayer, so that really kills some of the replay value. The aesthetics are acceptable for the kind of game this is but to be brutally honest they are average, if not a little less than. In the end kids that loved Barnyard are the only audience this game really has, though other, younger gamers may appreciate the content as well.
