The label "kid's game" is usually a license for a publisher to make a poor product and shove it out the door. However, Ratatouille is for the most part a well-made, but basic platformer that is usually fun despite its lack or originality. I don't think younger players will mind that the majority of the gameplay types included in the project have been done before. They will undoubtedly enjoy this game because it capitalizes on the license, it's easily picked up and mastered and because it offers a single-player mode that flows along, not to mention a selection of multiplayer mini-games to back it up. The GCN version is uglier than its counterparts, thanks in large to blurrier textures. While it runs in 16:9 as an option, it doesn't support progressive-scan.
Ratatouille est une production très sympathique et qui devrait plaire aux fans du film, malgré une facilité parfois exagérée.
That's the thing about Ratatouille--everything it does is done well enough to function, but never beyond that. It's edible without ever being especially tasty. It's the sort of game that will satisfy a younger fan of the film for a few lazy afternoon hours, and then be forgotten about immediately afterward.
Cette ratatouille est faite selon les règles et passera sans doute facilement dans le gosier des plus jeunes. Sans chercher à innover, le soft livre une prestation correcte qui séduira sans doute les amateurs de plates-formes ainsi que les joueurs réceptifs à l'univers du film. Cela n'empêche pas le titre de trimballer quelques problèmes dont une difficulté mal dosée pouvant entraîner de la frustration lors de certaines séquences.

Pretty uninspiring stuff, but I guess if you're a parent looking for a (relatively) harmless game to pick up for a small child it might do the trick. I'd like to think your kids deserve better. Either way, no one who measures his or her age in more than one digit is likely to find this entertaining.

Ratatouille is (groan) yet another movie tie-in in a long list of recent games passed my way for review [Sorry! - Ed.]. Unfortunately, a hit movie doesn’t exactly mean a good game – in fact, the reverse seems true more often than not. When all is said and done, Ratatouille barely makes the cut. While it should prove enjoyable enough for rabid fans of the movie, for those of us who don’t care for this sort of thing, the proceedings really seem to drag on and on.
