Overall, Ice Age 3 is one of the best Wii games I’ve played so far this year. Its variety and high production values kept me motivated, and for Pete’s sake, I got to ride around on a Pachycephalosaurus and headbutt other dinosaurs! That’s pretty hard to beat. Fun and challenging, Ice Age 3 is a pleasant surprise that I heartily recommend.

The licensed game has gone from tawdry or laughable to respectable and sometimes excellent. Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs makes you happy that you saw the film and that you now get to play it out in videogame form, faithfully transferring action elements from the big screen without tarnishing them. Nobody who goes to see a good film wants to find it butchered in some other media, so kudos to the development team for bringing Dawn of the Dinosaurs faithfully onto the Wii. Platformer fans will have a blast, even if the level of challenge is moderate, at best. Novice gamers will struggle with some of the 3D idiosyncrasies, but will rarely find themselves entirely thwarted. Recommended.

Overall this game delivers to its target audience. Its initial slow start is soon forgotten, and it will have them amused for hours. A must get for children and fans of the movie.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a welcome game and one that doesn't just follow the tried and trusted formula of the 'movie tie-in' video game. The developers have actually tried to add some personality and quirks of their own (albeit unoriginal) and in this case works very well. If you're a fan of the movies, then this is highly recommended especially for younger gamers, although it's questionable as to how well it would stack up for slightly older gamers who are well skilled with video games. Either way, it's fun, entertaining and well worth picking up whether you're renting or purchasing. It's clear the game is aimed at the younger market, and in this respect succeeds comfortably in what it sets out to do.

Even by non-licensed standards, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is an incredibly fun game. The theme will appeal more towards younger players, but older gamers who like variety and platforming games will enjoy it as well.

I would recommend Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs to just about anyone looking for a totally fun and moderately challenging gameplay experience with all of the flavor and style of the Ice Age movies. With so many game variations, this is the ultimate sampler platter of video gaming and non-stop fun from start to finish.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs makes for good fun on the Xbox 360, but doesn't wow us in the graphics department. The film was beautiful, and much of those cool settings made their way into the game. Playing as your favorite characters from the film is a blast, even if the extended platforming can get tedious. Platformer fans will eat up the chance to earn some good achievements and relive the film on their Xbox 360, and novice players will have plenty of cues and help. Young players will especially like the cut scenes, expanding on content from the film without making just a drab imitation. Licensed games are earning their keep as an important tie-in, when the developers get it right. These folks are doing something right, and anyone that enjoyed the Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs film will have good fun on this Xbox 360 version.

There is also a challenge mode for everyone to enjoy. The basic premise here is that you complete a level as fast as you can. Then another person goes through the same level and tries to beat your time with the top three times being displayed. It is another way to get everyone involved and could extend the replayability of this title for those who enjoy it. Overall Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a pretty good movie title. It is a great game that you can play with the entire family without having to worry about violence or anything of that nature. While the gameplay does tend to get a bit repetitive at the end kids should have fun controlling their favorite characters throughout the whole adventure. If you are a fan of the movie be sure to give this game a chance.

Wer „Ice Age 3“ mag, sollte sich das Spiel zum Film unbedingt ansehen. Eine viel bessere Filmumsetzung wird so bald eher nicht erscheinen. Eher schlechtere (wie zum Beispiel „Transformers 2 welches wir ebenso getestet haben). Generell dient das Game gleichfalls für jüngere sowie ein wenig ältere Spieler zu einer willkommenen Abwechslung im Bereich der Wii, die ansonsten doch eher mehr für Minispiele berühmt ist. Unser Tip: Einfach ansehen damit Sie auch mal eine gute Filmumsetzung erleben können.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is one of those rare instances where the whole is better than the sum of its parts. There is plenty going on, but nothing is done amazingly well. But the combination of all these elements comes together to prove that any movie game can be fun when given the right amount of attention. If you have kids and are looking for a great game to play with them, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a great choice.

In conclusion, there’s even a multiplayer component that allows for offline mini-games to be played with friends. The replay value of Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is much higher than expected, so if you are looking for a new family game to purchase, put Dawn of the Dinosaurs on your shopping list the next time you visit your local electronics store.

So in short, yes, the gameplay is diverse enough to keep gamers interested for the length of the game. When you boot up Dawn of the Dinosaurs, ask yourself this. What was the last video game you enjoyed that was based on a film? If it takes you some time to think about it, it’s best to smile and move on as Dawn of the Dinosaurs offers a compelling time for gamers to be engaged in. Almost all of the actors have returned to provide their voices, the visuals aren’t half-bad and there’s offline multiplayer to keep players coming back for more. To all parents: Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a must-have title for your children on the Xbox 360 – don’t hesitate any longer, rent or buy the prehistoric video game as soon as you can.

The overall quality and ease of play of the game make it suited for kids, and in that regard it's actually pretty good as far as kiddie movie licensed games go. If you're over ten, though, you'll find things too easy to provide much challenge at all, so you'd better be a really big Ice Age fan if you're going to get your money's worth out of it.

A pleasing adaptation of a family-favorite franchise. All around good fun and despite the short length, there is plenty of extras to come back to. Not exactly a blockbuster title, but a nice addition to a child's catalogue for sure. The older crowd can at least appreciate it for a bit of fun and an easy gamerscore boost.

Overall, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a fun game. Parents looking for a good clean game for the kids to enjoy should look no further. Even older gamers who are fond of the movies or looking for a decent adventure game with a large amount of platforming will enjoy this title. The game doesn't offer incredible depth aside from going back to collect crystals or trying to improve your challenge scores, but for what it is, a children's game based off a movie, and at its reduced price, its hard to go wrong. Technically the game presents no bugs and the gameplay, story, and overall presentation make it so that any one from the occasional, to hardcore gamer will get some enjoyment out of this game.

Ice Age isn't a great game, but it's far better than I expected from an animated movie tie-in. The constantly-changing gameplay types ensure that you won't get tired of it, which makes it great for the young, attention span-deprived demographic that Activision is going for.
75
Xbox 360Worth Playing
For an easy game promoting, and promoted by, a movie license, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs does a good job for itself. It doesn't reach, dares only be adorable and appealing to fans of the movies, and, likely by sticking to these short-range guns, spares itself the unmitigated disasters often foisted on us by lots of less worthy tie-in games. For the child and the child in all of us, give it a whirl, but if you steadfastly insist you grew up a long time ago, please move along; there's nothing for you to see here.

Ice Age 3: Die Dinosaurier sind los spielt sich herrlich unkompliziert und sehr kinderfreundlich. Die 15 Missionen gestalten sich sehr abwechslungsreich und entführen euch gekonnt in die Welt von Ice Age. Neben den Hauptfiguren, die stellenweise echt zu kurz kommen, übernehmt ihr hin und wieder auch die Kontrolle vieler weiterer Figuren, wie zum Beispiel Buck oder Scrat, der auf der ewigen Suche nach seiner Haselnuss fast schon seinen Verstand verliert. Diese eingeworfenen Side-Scroller Herausforderungen sind zwar sehr kurz, lockern das Spiel aber enorm auf. Ansonsten gestaltet sich Ice Age 3: Die Dinosaurier sind los gerade für Kinder enorm abwechslungsreich und spannend.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs continues the trend of solid movie-to-game conversions. Couple this with the idea that it is also a kids game that usually translates to quick cash-in and you get a two-for-one bonus of good news. If your kids are fans of the movies then there is no reason not to pick up this enjoyable romp in the universe. Lack of co-op hurts the overall score, but what is here is a fun romp from beginning to end. I trust there are no hardcores out there considering picking this up, and if you are (even just for Achievements), rent it first. The game clocks in at less than three hours with a skilled gamer at the helm, but kids interested in taking Sid and his friends on a fun journey will find plenty to love.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs has a handful of minor issues, and though the game offers tons of variety that’s actually fun, it’s pacing lacks a bit of polish. That said, this is one movie-based game we can whole-heartedly recommend to fans. It’s not quite epic, and it fares on the short side, but shopping elements and unlockables add value to the package. The multiplayer mini-games are less than stellar, but the story-mode level design is sure to welcome you back for repeat visits.

Die Werbekampagne für den Kinofilm Ice Age 3 läuft auf Hochtouren. Da ist es natürlich nicht verwunderlich, dass für Wii, PS2, Xbox 360, PS3 und PC die entsprechenden Lizenzumsetzungen von Activision entwickelt worden sind. Alle Versionen sind inhaltlich gleich, nur technisch müssen die Wii- und PS2-Version mal wieder zurückstecken. Das ändert nichts daran, dass die Abschnitte mit den vielen verschiedenen Charakteren, abwechslungsreich ausgefallen sind und eine gewisse Zeit lang auch Spaß machen. Nur ist der Schwierigkeitsgrad bis auf ein paar unfaire Situationen extrem niedrig und das Spielerlebnis insgesamt nur Durchschnitt. Keine Spannung, keine Überraschungen, kein Witz. Einmal durchgespielt, wird die Disk von Ice Age 3 das Innere der Wii vermutlich nicht mehr zu sehen bekommen. Ss sei denn, man möchte mit Freunden ein paar kleine Minispiele im Multiplayer spielen. Den Vollpreis ist dieses Vorhaben aber nicht wert.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs doesn't bring anything new that you haven’t played a hundred times before, but the variety of gameplay types provide a break from the monotony of movie-based games. Fans of the series will love being able to play as their favorite characters, and getting a chance to revisit the movie may be enough for some to want to purchase this game. You won’t find much in the way of difficulty and it won’t take you very long to finish the game, but the addition of the mini-games and their variants will give you something to enjoy with younger family members for hours afterward.

It falls short of an unqualified recommendation at full-price because of a difficulty curve that’s more or less flatlined, and the sometimes glacial (as in ‘ice age’, ha!) pace of the action. But it’s never boring, and doesn’t that count for a lot?

If you've got kids at home who love the Ice Age franchise, then we don't see why they shouldn't have themselves a copy. Aside from the $50 price tag, which we think may be too high, it's a straightforward and lighthearted game that the little ones should enjoy quite a bit. From a more professional and grown up point of view, we actually think a lot of these games have some really massive potential to look more like their big-screen kin, and play even better. The obvious limitations here are the graphics, which have been kept back in order to make this a port friendly game. We'd really love to see a developer try and release something proper to really bridge the gap between CG movie and videogame.

In the end, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a children’s game that has some heart. I spent a lot of hours playing and enjoying the game for what it was. The multiplayer is definitely not something to go out of your way to play, nor is it a reason to buy the game. However, it does deliver a solid tie-in to the film that is a good stepping-stone for kids. While it is intended for kids, adults will likely have trouble with the challenge mode. It consists of several sections of the game that need to be beaten in one shot under strict time or score conditions. This will be where your average gamer will go for his kicks, and it is actually pretty tough. As a single player game with quick loads after ‘death’, unlimited lives, and lots of in-game help at your disposal, don’t hesitate to pick this up for your lil Ice Age fan. They will love it, and you might get a kick out of it, too!

In conclusion, Ice Age Dawn: of the Dinosaurs, isn’t perfect, but as a movie tie-in, it stands well above the rest when it comes to competent level design, graphics and voice work. You can really tell that a lot of effort went into this game. The game does have a few faults, such as the short playtime, somewhat vapid minigames and multiplayer, and a confusing story for those who have not watched the movie. For the target audience, this will not matter, and any child should have fun with this game.

„Ice Age 3 – Die Dinosaurier sind los“ ist ein grundsolides Hüpfabenteuer geworden, das zwar weder spielerisch, noch technisch einen wirklich vom Hocker haut, aber durchaus abwechslungsreiche Kost vor allem für jüngere Spieler liefert. Die Geschichte ist durchgängig inszeniert, wobei die Erzählung anhand der Höhlenmalereien zwar nett, mit den Gesichtern der Charaktere aber sicherlich deutlich spaßiger geworden wäre. Spielerisch bewegt man sich auf bekannten Pfaden mit einfachen Jump’n’Run-Einlagen und einigen Actionsequenzen – dank einiger kreativer (und teils abgeschauter) Ideen bietet dieser Titel aber durchaus einiges an Abwechslung. Gelegenheitsspieler, Fans sowie junge und jung gebliebene Spieler dürfen daher mal mit einem Blick liebäugeln, müssen aber im Hinterkopf behalten, das für den Vollpreis nur ein Titel mit geringem Spielumfang heraus springt.

All together, it's a really decent effort at making a fun kid's title that both parents and kids will enjoy, but it's not going to replace your favorite platformer anytime soon. Still, it's a better effort out of Eurocom than I've seen in the past, and I really hope they expand upon that for their next licensed title. If you're looking for a fun, family friendly title to pick up this summer that you can play with your kids, then you can't do better than Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. It's definitely enjoyable, just not as polished as a AAA title might be.

I struggle to recommend it to a childless adult as really, why would you in your right mind buy a full price game aimed at children? However, if you are a parent who is looking for a game to play with their child that both of you can enjoy: this succeeds quite admirably. It even offers a multiplayer mode if you want to compete together, although this consists solely of mini-games rather than any co-operative sections within the game. Just make sure you keep an eye on things so you can take over when the action gets too taxing, you don't want your child to learn that throwing a controller at the TV is terrific stress relief.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a game that should satisfy the franchise's young fan base. It's got the characters they know and love, it's got a bunch of different gameplay types bundled together to keep hold of short attention spans, and it shouldn't be too difficult. Still, the game probably won't appeal to players outside of that limited demographic -- it's way too easy, characters float on top of stuff, some of the voices are annoying, and so on. I personally enjoyed the variety of gameplay and chasing the high scores in the challenges, but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone but an Ice Age super-fan under the age of 10.

Eines vorweg: Ice Age 3 ist kein schlechtes Spiel und es gab in der Vergangenheit wahrlich miesere Lizenzverbrechen. Gerade Gelegenheitsspieler und jüngere Fans werden an den Abenteuern von Sid und Buck (und den anderen) ihre Freude haben. Insgesamt bietet das Spiel jedoch zu wenig Herausforderung und Flair, um länger an den Bildschirm zu fesseln. Auch technisch wird eher Magerkost geboten. Schade drum.

Ice Age goes to show that you don't always need to toss in some throw away mini-games to string together a video game. It is just as easy to switch up gameplay styles but not goes as deep as a game that specializes in one area. The result of the combined styles makes Ice Age an enjoyable romp in prehistory with a silly cast of characters. While it might not turn hardcore heads, youngsters will get plenty of mileage out of Ice Age.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs provides a good deal of variety and the occasional funny moment. However, it doesn't offer any real challenge, and the experience is short lived. While the action and platforming sections are fun to play, the racing and shooter levels are too simplistic and require only a modicum of skill and some button mashing to complete. The multiplayer modes, meanwhile, vary wildly in terms of quality. Ice Age is a game that younger players and fans of the movie will enjoy, but it's a game that attempts to cover a lot of bases without doing anything particularly well.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a game that should satisfy the franchise's young fan base. It's got the characters they know and love, it's got a bunch of different gameplay types bundled together to keep hold of short attention spans, and it shouldn't be too difficult. Still, the game probably won't appeal to players outside of that limited demographic -- it's way too easy, characters float on top of stuff, some of the voices are annoying, and so on. I personally enjoyed the variety of gameplay and chasing the Achievements for challenges, but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone but an Ice Age super-fan under the age of 10.

Most of the challenges are enjoyable (albeit lax on difficulty), but hardly any are in satisfying doses. I was left wanting more, and wondering why solid gameplay sections were only used once.

Ice Age 3 ist zum Glück nicht die totale Katastrophe, die man bei einer Lizenzumsetzung am Anfang vermuten mag. Im Gegenteil, es kann sogar Spaß machen, wenn man über die fehlenden originalen Synchronsprecher sowie die grafische Lieblosigkeit hinwegsehen kann. Dafür sorgen dann vor allem die einfallsreichen Minispiele, die die einheitliche Plattformhüpferei gekonnt aufpeppen. Die acht Minispiele im Multiplayer-Modus bringen ebenfalls Spielspaß mit sich und können unter Freunden oder mit der Familie für lustige Momente sorgen. Dennoch: Das Problem von Ice Age 3 ist und bleibt die Technik, die leider nur zweckmäßig ausgerichtet ist und heutzutage keinen mehr vom Hocker haut. Eine Kaufempfehlung kann man deshalb wohl nur Casual-Gamern aussprechen, die sich mit Sid und Co. unbedingt ins virtuelle Abenteuer stürzen wollen. Hardcore-Gamer bietet Ice Age 3 hingegen nichts, was man nicht schon gesehen hätte.

Ice Age 3 ist eindeutig auf eine sehr junge Zielgruppe zugeschnitten. Trotzdem hat es auch mir Spaß gemacht durch die Levels zu hüpfen. Ich habe allerdings den Humor der Vorlage stark vermisst (außer bei Scrat) und von der Geschichte nicht viel mit bekommen. Für eine Lizenzumsetzung dennoch gelungen und relativ umfangreich. Wenn Sie ein Spiel für Ihre Kinder suchen, können Sie sich Ice Age 3 ruhig mal ansehen. Wenn Sie aber den Humor des Films mochten, werden Sie enttäuscht sein.

Das eigentliche Problem von Ice Age 3 ist die Technik. Wären Steuerung und Balance etwas ausgefeilter und hätte das Spiel insgesamt weniger Fehler gehabt, würde es sich um eine wirklich gelungene Filmversoftung handeln. So trauert der Spieler jedoch nur um die nicht weiter ausgebauten, tollen Ideen.

But Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs will make a lot of people happy. It will be fodder for the haters who enjoy ripping things that don’t measure up to their high standards, but equally it will bring hours of fun to those that love the movie and eagerly rent the game. For them there are plenty of levels to complete and achievements to own, and who doesn’t want to see a fight between a Mammoth and a T-Rex.

Inhaltlich bekommt man eine gelungene Mischung bekannter und beliebter Elemente, die handwerklich sehr solide zusammengefügt wurden. Technik und Schwierigkeitsgrad allerdings sind für Sorgenfalten verantwortlich. Letzteres, weil es nur jüngeren oder höchst selten spielenden Familienmitgliedern eine Herausforderung bietet und vorrangig auf "Durchkommen" angelegt ist; Ersteres, weil die fehlende Optimierung für die verschiedenen Systeme zu deutlich wird.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a straight-forward children’s release that doesn’t push the envelope in any way. It’s a by-the-numbers movie-to-game title that offers little in terms of surprise, virtually no challenge, and ultimately is a forgettable experience. The multiplayer modes and collectables will keep kids entertained longer than they should be, and because of that I’d say this one at least deserves a rent if you have kids who loved the film. Just don’t be surprised if you see them playing something else after a couple of hours.

"Ice Age 3" macht so wenig richtig, dass es schon fast schmerzt. Ein mal eben so dahingeklatschter Zusatz zum dritten Teil eines Films, der schon bei der ersten Fortsetzung einiges an Pfiff eingebüßt hat. Vielleicht sollten sich die Publisher manche kommerziellen Bemühungen einfach sparen.

Dawn of the Dinosaurs has a very smooth and understandable story unlike a lot of games geared toward the younger audience. Cut scenes and load scenes follow every one of the levels in which the lovable Sid the Sloth and candid Diego the Sabretooth are telling stories of their family adventures leading up to the birth of Ellie and Manny’s children. Each story leads to a level in which you are meant to find three crystals, (more if you check out the trade shack), that are being hunted to appease Ellie. Along the way you are chased by dinosaurs, attacked by plants and introduced to Buck. He then becomes their hero leading the way with wall jumps, rock climbs, and “surfing” through the jungle.
