Player One (Oct, 1996)
Que les fans se réjouissent : il n'y a pratiquement aucune différence entre cette version Megadrive et celle de la 16 bits Nintendo. Celle-ci, un peu moins belle certes, reste tout aussi sympathique à jouer, grâce notamment à la jouabilité, excellente. De plus, les niveaux variés comprennent différents styles de jeux, comme ce level où Jiminy doit tuer des moustiques ou celui du théâtre de marionnettes dans lequel Pinocchio imite des danseurs. La musique, très agréable, est bien adaptée. Pour une fois, un jeu destiné aux p'tits n'enfants réussi. Chapeau !
Mean Machines (Nov, 1996)
A modest platformer with only a few nice touches - fun for fans.

Toujours aussi agréable, Pinocchio est un excellent jeu. Faisant partie de ces titres pour enfants parfaitement adaptés à leur public, le jeu de Disney Interactive est une belle aventure qui jamais ne vous frustrera ni ne vous lassera. Un simple concentré de détente.

This is definitely a safe game for the kids. This is the kind of title that Grandma buys little Timmy for his birthday. More often than not though, little Timmy is more interested in trying to find Jax's animality in Mortal Kombat III. If innocence and simplistic gameplay don't scare you away, this is a worthy game to take a look at. It won't take long for you to swing through it but the scenery's nice, the sounds are sweet and the story is timeless. Sound like Disney to you?

As it is, Pinocchio is a bit of a challenge to score. On one hand, I would argue that this is the most visually engaging and amazing titles on the Genesis (and yes, I've played Aladdin and Earthworm Jim). In that sense alone, it is an achievement right up there with the original 1940 masterpiece. As far as gameplay goes, however, it's more on the level of The Rescuers or The Aristocats. I applaud Virgin Interactive for not making just another standard platformer, even though in this case they, like Pinocchio himself, often mean well more often than they do well.
