Piglet's Big Game is a sweet little story where Piglet faces his fears and learns that he doesn't have to be big to be a hero. (The game will (Wham!) make sure (Wham!) that you learn this lesson (Wham! Wham!).) Your wee ones will enjoy it—as long as their parental units help in the face-making button pushing—and so will those who are just young at heart. Even with the heavy-handedness of the message (Wham!) and Tigger's snail's-pace tiptoeing, I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game. I giggled at the different Heffalumps and Woozles and laughed out loud when Piglet made his faces. And let's face it, not even the button mashing combinations could completely ruin it—although there was a lot of screaming on my part. The fun just never stopped. And for that, Piglet's Big Game gets the FFC thumb up from me!

The reason for the final score is because of the crazy key sequences for the battles. Hitting those sequences are not easy and require quick timing as well. Also the fact that some scenes have a time limit makes it slightly harder. The game is also quite repetitive, such as constantly being required to find keys to unlock the doors. If you play this game over a given amount of days it probably wouldn’t be as bad but playing it 6 hrs straight was not such a hot idea. The game is also quite short being able to beat the game in a good 4-10 hrs. Even with these slight downsides the game was still slightly fun. Having the real character voices, which I am quite familiar with, brings back old memories. For a retail of $39.99 it’s up to you if you this game is for you. And just a reminder to those that don’t know, this is only a 1 Player game.

While certainly not designed for most post pubescent gamers, Piglet's Big Game is a nice little gem for the younger crowd. And if Winnie the Pooh is your thing, this just might be the best game starring the gang from the Hundred Acre Woods. Developer Doki Denki has done a great job tailoring the game to suit younger players. Gameplay is a little repetitive, but is spiced up with numerous cut scenes and the incentive to unlock cartoon clips. The graphics, meanwhile, are of surprisingly high caliber -- detailed and ambitiously animated, and the music and enjoyable voice acting add greatly to the production value. A true kid's game. Highly recommended for younger gamers and fans of Pooh. If you happen to be over the age of 10, though, this one probably isn't for you, even if it is well executed.

It's true that there are lots and lots of poor-quality games in virtually any genre, but it seems that the kids' games get the lion's share, as publishers seem to rarely have much respect for the intellect of that particular audience. Piglet's Big Game is a wonderful exception to this rule and a good example of how to bring a licensed property and quality production together without compromising either.

The final word is this: If you want an excellent kids game with no violence, this is your game. It's simple, pretty and even parents who used to watch Pooh back in the day will be delighted with the high quality production levels put into this one.

Je reconnais que ce n'est pas vraiment évident pour moi de juger de la portée d'un jeu pour tout petits (oui, contrairement à ce que tout le monde semble croire, je n'ai plus 10 ans). Mais avec ce que j'ai pu voir, Porcinet remplit plutôt bien son rôle et saura distraire les jeunes joueurs. En plus, la réalisation est vraiment réussie ce qui n'ôte rien à l'affaire.
