Quite surprisingly, Bee Movie Game really is quite good. Compared to so many cinematic tie-ins, it is well considered, has occasional moments of originality, and definitely seems to avoid relying on its license to make up for bad design. Out of all the Pixar and Dreamworks games, it is absolutely among one of the best, and would make for a brilliant Christmas present if you're looking to satisfy the kids over the festive season.

Bee Movie The Game ist kein Kracher, den man gezockt haben muss, aber für eine Filmversoftung unverschämt gut und es hat einen ganz großen Pluspunkt: es bietet durchgehend gute Unterhaltung und macht jede Menge Spaß ohne groß nachdenken zu müssen. Das perfekte Spiel gerade für die jüngeren Xbox-Spieler unter uns sowie alle, die nach Feierabend einfach nur abschalten und gut unterhalten werden wollen. Filmfans dürfen eh unbesorgt zugreifen!

The Bee Movie Game is obviously aimed at younger players and those who are interested in the movie. But even older gamers will find plenty of humor and solid gameplay to enjoy in the game.

With its simplistic gameplay and missions, Bee Movie Game has been developed squarely for youngsters. And for this age group, this fun-filled title offers just the right balance of challenge and reward to make it a game they will want to play for hours on end.

Bei Bee Movie – Der Honigkomplott erwartet euch weder ein Meilenstein der Videospielgeschichte, noch die schlechteste Filmadaption aller Zeiten. Das Spiel bietet Unterhaltung, wenn nötig sogar für die ganze Familie. Der Witz des Films wird dabei durch lustige Mimiken, Gestiken und Sprüche toll herübergebracht und verleitet selbst Spieler älterer Generationen zu dem einen oder anderen Lacher oder Schmunzeln. Story und Präsentation versprühen einen gewissen Charme, der sich nicht verheimlichen lässt. Die Außenlevels können mit der Konsolenkonkurrenz in Sachen Optik mehr als mithalten. Alles ist liebevoll gestaltet und detailverliebt designed. Der Titel wird zwar nicht das erfolgreichste Spiel des Jahres, jedoch wird er durchaus für ein breites Lächeln auf den Gesichtern der jüngeren Spieler sorgen, wenn das Action-Adventure unter dem Weihnachtsbaum erblickt wird.

Like a lot of other games based on kid’s movies, this game certainly isn’t complex, but it could be fun for the younger crowd. You control the Seinfeld-voiced protagonist through various scripted and open-world segments, and there’s actually a decent amount of things to do. Minigames abound throughout the open-world segments, and they’re all simple and enjoyable enough to satisfy fans of the movie.

Müsste ich zu Weihnachten ein 10-15 jähriges Kind beschenken, das Bee Movie Spiel stände auf meiner Einkaufsliste. Für jüngere Zocker ist die Filmversoftung ein richtig hübsches Spiel geworden, das nett inszenierte Levels bietet und auch optisch einiges auf dem Kasten hat. Sicherlich mag auf Dauer die Abwechslung eher mangelhaft sein und gehaltvoll sind die ständigen QuickTimeEvents auch nicht, doch ein paar Stunden kann man mit Barry der Biene durchaus Spaß haben. Und möglicherweise ist das Spiel sogar besser als der laut den ersten Kritiken eher langweilige Film geworden. Auf jeden Fall ist das Bee Movie Spiel eine der besseren Filmumsetzungen und absolut kindgerechte Unterhaltung.

Bis auf den mageren PS2- bzw-. Wii-Ausflug von Spider-Man konnten sich die Filmumsetzungen von Actvision dieses Jahr sehen lassen. Da macht auch Bee Movie keine Ausnahme. Barry Bensons Abenteuer ist eine solide Sammlung an Minispielen und Reaktionstest, die durch eine rudimentäre Anbindung an die Geschichte des Filmes zusammen gehalten werden und deren Unterhaltungspotenzial sich an eine jüngere Zielgruppe richtet. Doch auch eine ältere Zockergeneration kann mit Bee Movie unterhaltsame Stunden erleben. Hier raten wir allerdings zu dosierten Sessions, da sich ansonsten leichte Abnutzungserscheinungen einstellen.

Overall, here’s a kids game that’s fun for just about everyone. Hardcore players should probably stay away, but anyone looking for a laid-back and fun time can find at least a little of that here. This game is obviously made for kids, and while they’ll have more fun with it than an adult would, there’s a little something for everyone in this package.

I have mixed feelings about recommending this game. While there isn't anything exceptionally bad about it, there is nothing that really makes it stand out. The mini-games are a mix of fun and humdrum (personally, I found the racing game to be passable, while the mechanic was fun, twitched-based action), and most of the other gameplay gets pretty repetitive.

This game is not a failure by any means. This is a title definitely intended for children and gives them something to pass the time with after school gets out. Mothers out there should look to this game to give them some peace and quiet time from their kids.

Fans of the animated movie will have a lot of fun with this game, especially if they're wanting to relive some of their favorite moments from the film. While this is hardly groundbreaking stuff, as a kids' game the Bee Movie Game is definitely enjoyable. For most older gamers this short and innocent romp probably won't pull you away from Call of Duty 4 or Rock Band, but it is a lot better than most of the games based on animated movies. If you're looking an adorable game for the younger set you can't go wrong with this newest game from Activision, and who knows, maybe you'll even have a good time playing it yourself.

In the end, Bee Movie is harmless fun. Without the movie license backing it up, Bee Movie Game would still be a solid game (even if some of the story elements would make little sense), which means it's a great licensed game; the kind of title that Activision has been excelling at recently.

I really liked this game and would recommend it for families who want to get the most value out a game. This game will keep you occupied for hours. There are hundreds of things you can do and achievements in the form of medals. From being a taxi driver to helping protect the hive from dragon fly invaders this game is challenging, fun, and enjoyable with numerous environments to explore inside and outside the hive.

The game will certainly have some charm for younger players, but there are a few challenges to overcome while playing it. Even a 13-year old was surprised and confused when the game changed control options, moving from WASD and arrow keys to numbers, during one section. And there is a fair amount of repetition to overcome. The game just seems to lack a cohesive element to make it truly a charming affair. This is a game best left to the younger crowd.

So, while the Bee Game Movie doesn’t really ever do a lot to stand out from the rest of the video-game fare, as far as movie-based games go, it’s actually not that bad. If you enjoyed the movie, there’s definitely going to be at least a little something for you to enjoy in the game. A solid presentation and decent gameplay mechanics make this a good title for the kids—and for the kids at heart.

The younger gamer in your home will likely get a kick or two out of the Bee Movie Game, especially the New Hive City exploration and the interactive flying cinemas. (In fact, older gamers might even want to hijack the Wii Remote for those, too.) There is a lot to see and do in here, from story missions to mini-games to races. This holiday season is getting crowded with quick cash-in games for the Wii, but Bee Movie deserves to stand out from the filler.

Bee Movie Le Jeu est une adaptation plaisante d'un film à la bonne humeur communicative. La variété des phases de jeu suffit à compenser leur intérêt inégal, et le fun dégagé par l'ensemble fait oublier la jouabilité perfectible. Les plus jeunes n'ont donc aucune raison de se priver. Les autres hésiteront sans doute.

The car-based gameplay is absolutely atrocious and serves little purpose other than to prevent you from taking on another enjoyable flight stage. Bee Movie Game is a gracious flyer, but in the end, you walk away feeling you've been stung 100 times.

Bee Movie Game is far, far better than the odds would suggest, and though it's not all perfect, what's there is certainly worth picking up if you enjoyed the movie and want something to play with the kids. Just, y'know, make sure you save in a couple different slots.

PlayStation 2IGN
For all the blah, repetitive mini-game jobs and the slightly weak overall presentation, Bee Movie Game holds up surprisingly well. It's definitely better than most licensed games ought to be, but your mileage with the game will largely come down to how obsessive you are about finding hidden trinkets in the exploration levels and how much you like zipping slowly around giant-sized everyday locales.

Voor volwassenen is deze game veel te makkelijk, maar voor kinderen is het een echt avontuur.

Das Spiel zum Film ist ein echter Schnellschuss. Im Minutentakt wechseln sich kurze Spielszenen mit kleinen Filmausschnitten und Ladezeiten ab. Dabei kommt kaum Spielfluss, geschweige denn Film-Atmospähre auf. Dafür ist auch die Qualität der Grafik und der Geräusche zu bescheiden. Spielerisch werden auch nette Ideen geboten - wie etwa das Tennisspiel, in dem Sie Berry davor bewahren müssen, zerquetscht zu werden. Davon hätte man sich mehr gewünscht - nur "befriedigend".

I found the Bee Movie Game to be a title that tried hard to break a lot of stereotypes for licensed video games. From timed-button pressing to dodging raindrops, the developers implemented a lot of depth though it wasn’t properly executed.

Games which are based on movies never tend to light up the gaming world, and the Bee Movie Game unfortunately follows this trend. If you’re looking for something different then the ever-present first person shooter in your collection, you might want to give this game a shot. The colourful graphics style brings something different to the Xbox 360 system much as Viva Pinata did and will certainly appeal to the younger audience; your kids are bound to love this game. Unfortunately though, I doubt you will feel the same way, and will dismiss it to the bottom of your growing game collection after you’ve completed it and acquired all of the achievements. A reasonable effort from Beenox, but nothing to break the mould.

Bee Movie is a good weekend rental for the younglings, but not something veteran gamers are going to be too thrilled about. There is a multi-player feature where you can race a friend, but there is really no depth or incentive for it. You are better off chasing bees outside in real life. As a movie based game, I tip my hat to developer Beenox for a job well done considering the subject matter of the game. In some ways it even breaks the movie to game curse but over all doesn't transcend past a weekend rental. So walk, don't run, because you may hurt yourself, to your local rental store and pick up your copy today. You won't feel bad about it in the end.

Warum die Biene mit Autos herumfährt statt zu fliegen, danach frage ich gar nicht erst - das gibt ja der Film vor. Genauso wie die lahme Story über Identitätsfindung. Aber die vermurkste Steuerung wäre nun wirklich nicht nötig gewesen. Die GTA-Anleihen mit dem frei begehbaren Bienenstock und den Nebenaufträgen sind ja eigentlich nett, wären Spielumgebung und Minispiele nicht total öde. Das ist kein Bienenstock, das ist ein Altersheim.

Bee Movie Game stings itself in the foot by forcefully inserting minigames into the campaign, as players must complete jobs between missions to advance the storyline. It extends the otherwise four-hour campaign into the seven or eight hour range, but kills any momentum the narrative might have had. We don't mind messing around with the extra content, but give us a say in the matter - don't force us to play the minigames to expand the already-uninspiring campaign. It's sloppy game design, and it drags Bee Movie Game even further into the mud.

Bee Movie Le Jeu est une adaptation du film fun et inventive, à la bonne humeur communicative, mais desservie par une réalisation décevante et une jouabilité exécrable lors des phases aériennes. Sachant que ce dernier aspect le rend inaccessible au public de jeunes joueurs auquel il est destiné, on se demande bien qui pourra être intéressé par ce titre.

Following the plot of the movie closely, this is a game for people who want to relive the movie's best parts. Consider it a vaguely interactive CliffsNotes version of the film. If that is worth full price to you, then get this game. I dare you. But your money would be better spent going to see the movie five times and reliving it that way.

It seems likely that the Wii version was wrapped prior to completion to meet a deadline, as there's really no legitimate reason why missions would be scrapped while the rest of the narrative remains intact. With a comparative dearth of content and embarrassing presentational gaffes, we can't imagine why this wasn't scrapped in favor of a low-key PlayStation 2 port. Shovelware may be a be considered a generally deplorable concept, but it would have been better than this dreck.
