Ratatouille is a good game on the Wii, just as it is on the PlayStation 2. Camera controls might make you wonder at times, but overall you'll have a great time playing the role of a Paris rat.

With the newer generation of console systems coming into the market, you should be able to pick up a copy of Ratatouille for the PS2 at a fairly good price — an even better price if you purchase a used copy — and that's a wonderful thing. I would definitely recommend this title for any of the younger gamers in your household, provided that they have a fair modicum of patience to deal with its little quirks and difficulties. Hollywood, pay close attention: Ratatouille does a lot of things right.

Overall the game is fun and suitable for the younger generation of gamers. I would certainly recommend this game for anyone with kids. If you enjoy this type of game and are looking for a relatively easy 1000gs, then this is definately for you!

For a platformer fan who isn't really picky about licenses or originality, Ratatouille is an okay game. Very little about the game stands out, though the level design is well-done and makes for a fun game.

Ratatouille ist ein wirklich nettes Spiel, mit dem man sich schnell ein paar Stunden um die Ohren hauen kann. Die kleinen Minispiele sind immer wieder eine Abwechslung. Leider wiederholen sich diese aber recht bald, was dazu führt, dass man ab der Hälfte des Spiel so langsam die Lust daran verliert. Die sporadischen Abstürze und mangelnde Speicherpunkte trüben das Ergebnis.

The only rat you’d ever want to have in your home. Ratatouille is an enjoyable action/adventure rendition of the current number-one film in America (and the most entertaining comedy of the year). Rent it for quick fun; buy it for the lasting replay value.

Ratatouille may be a kids game, in fact it definitely is. The controls and goals are decidedly simple, the story is definitely classic and non-violent, but that’s not to say it’s only for younger audiences. Just about anyone can have a good time with this game, at least for a while. The Wii version is well done, and the controls feel well implemented. It’s funny, it’s fun, and it’s just plain easy to enjoy. Ratatouille may not exactly be a five star dish, but this is no fast food game either. (No offense, Burger King...)

Ratatouille is a fun game; the only sad thing is that this game really doesn’t try to add anything new. On the other hand the thing that it excels at is making sure the game is as tight controlling as it can be for the players. If you are looking for a good game for your children then this game should fit the bill.

The gameplay is solid, despite nagging camera and control issues, and minigames gives it a sense of variety that at least kept me interested in continuing Remy's quest to become a rodent gourmet. It's not amazing, but it's solid fun for younger Pixar fans.

Overall, Ratatouille won't astound those looking for something more original. On the other hand, it still gets by with a healthy portion of fine content, enough to be worth a rent - or a purchase to those with young kids. This rat hasn't quite produced a prime rib, but at least the meal didn't stink.

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 or that Ratatouille doesn't floor anybody with its innovative usage of the Wii remote. 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. Still, these are issues and we can't ignore them completely simply because a portion of the audience will.

Licentiegames zoals deze hebben over het algemeen een bedenkelijke kwaliteit, maar bij deze titel valt het nogal mee. De graphics zijn weliswaar niet al te best en de speelduur is aan de korte kant, maar de game laat zich bijzonder gemakkelijk spelen, de gameplay is afwisselend, het blijft vermakelijk tot het einde en je hebt er geen killer-pc voor nodig. Eentje voor de kids.

Ultimately, while Ratatouille doesn't absolutely offend the gaming palette, its frustrating boss races and dodgy environment camera do occasionally leave a bad taste in the mouth. Helping Remy and the young Linguini to rekindle the mouth-watering magic of Gusteau's restaurant will arrive as a thoroughly solid distraction for most young gamers, although the more hardcore player would be advised to look elsewhere for their challenge and thrills.

Ratatouille won't do much to change my mind about the role rats should have in video games, but it did provide two afternoon's worth of satisfying platforming, if you go into it knowing that stretches of it can be aggravating, either because they push your skills to the test or make you question the gameplay, it should do the same for you.

Sheer repetitive nature aside however, the game still has a few high points, including some quality voice acting (when it is used) and some enjoyable multiplayer activities. So, for the kiddies, especially the ones who’ve seen the movie ahead of time, Ratatouille could be a fine diversion, but just as a rental and certainly nothing more.

Ratatouille est une production très sympathique et qui devrait plaire aux fans du film, malgré une facilité parfois exagérée.

And 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. It's hard to justify paying between $40 and $50 for any version of such an ultimately disposable game (the PC version is, at least, going for $20), but if your kid is desperate to relive Remy's adventures for him or herself, Ratatouille isn't a bad game to rent. And if you're old enough to feel embarrassed whining to your parents about buying you a game based on an animated film, you're officially too old for Ratatouille, and should just skip it altogether.

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.

Ratatouille is one of the best-licensed releases Gamestyle has played in 2007, although looking back that’s not a very difficult achievement in the context of what’s gone before. On its own merits it is a steady adventure with plenty of content and modes making it an outside bet for any younger Nintendo Wii owner. Heavy Iron have no doubt played it safe within the confines of the license but against all odds managed to create an enjoyable experience.

Ein Spiel für die ganze Familie? Sicherlich nicht. In Ratatouille korrespondiert eher eine humorvolle Kinovorlage mit uninspiriertem Gameplay, bei dem jüngere Spieler dank des leichten Schwierigkeitsgrades, der simplen Aufgabenstellungen, guter Bedienung und der Prise Humor einen vorsichtigen Blick riskieren dürfen – vorausgesetzt man schloss den gleichnamigen Kinofilm ins Herz. All diejenigen, die der reiferen Spielerschar angehören, gehen mit ihrer Angebeteten ohnehin lieber fein Essen – französisch, versteht sich.

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.

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.

It’s largely a rote recycling of the film, and, although it does feature real voiceovers from the cast, it does little to expand the experience. You may not own Ratatouille, but trust me – in a way, you’ve already played it. Almost nothing here is new or unique – it’s the same old jumping, climbing, and collecting various widgets that we’ve all been doing over and over for what seems like forever.

Ratatouille is an okay platforming game that provides some adequete platforming entertainment. Everything in the game has that same "been there done that" feeling, but as the game doesn't have any major flaws fans of the film and small children may find some fun in the game.

Xbox 360Worth Playing
Ratatouille is a mediocre platformer with very serious problems with its gameplay and sound elements. While the graphics are on par with an average Xbox 360 game, everything else falls well below that mark. The main game, coupled with a series of minigames, does absolutely nothing to add to the movie experience and comes close to tarnishing the film's memory. After playing the game for so long, I can't even fathom rewatching the movie right now — at least not until the nightmares pass of Oswalt telling me to go to Paris and eat cheese.

Ratatouille wäre eigentlich das perfekte Spiel für Kinder. Niedliche Charaktere, simples Spielprinzip - nur die schwierigen Rutschpartien fallen stark aus dem Rahmen. Somit ist der Titel für erfahrene zu anspruchslos, während Anfänger das Gamepad vor Frust in die Ecke pfeffern. Die Atmosphäre des Films fängt das Spiel trotzdem gut ein, weshalb zumindest Freunde des Kinostreifens ein Auge darauf werfen können.

It's just too bad Heavy Iron didn't follow through on these good ideas with a stable and accessible gameplay system. Even if they had opted to ignore the story - strange, but they did - playing the game would've been entertaining enough to take our minds off the lack of dialogue, plot-laden cut-scenes, etc. The game does shine with a series of interesting platforming ideas, as outlined earlier, so that might be enough to keep fans of the movie playing until the end. But there are plenty better PS3 titles out there for the avid gamer, and even several better games designed for the younger crowd. There's not much else to say, but we always hate to see productions with so much potential fail to follow through on all that promise. Ratatouille, without any doubt, is far better as a movie, and even big fans of the film probably won't get too much enjoyment out of the game.

Ratatouille's biggest issue is that it's just licensed product. It's a barely competent game that feels like it was another box ticked off on the list of some executive's animated movie to do list. Action figures? Check. Marketing blitz on the Disney channel? Check. Ratatouille Folding Picnic Set, pajamas, and drinking glasses? You betcha! Ratatouille the game? Can't call it a full product line without that! If someone had gently explained to our lazy theoretical straw-man executive that a half-assed product aimed at the wrong market isn't doing anything to strengthen the core brand, we might (maybe!) have gotten a game worthy of the movie.

PlayStation 3The Next Level
Games based on Disney movies once were something to look forward to, but sadly those days are long gone. Classic platformers like Aladdin are nothing more than a memory. Nowadays, Disney licensed games are more like rat traps. The license lures you in like a big hunk of cheese, and snap, it’s over before you know what hit you. So it’s fitting that one of the most recent Disney titles features a rat named Remy, the hero of Ratatouille. He may be able to sniff out the traps that plague his rodent friends, he doesn’t fare quite as well in his recent PlayStation 3 outing. The goal of becoming a chef is quickly lost in the mundane nature of most of the missions. It’s enough to squander the good will provided by the film, and leave you with a bad taste in your mouth. For me, it was enough to make me break out my Genesis and take a quick flight on a magic carpet.

It's admittedly fun to go around collecting shiny things, but stars aren't the only items for you to find. Each area has an extra set of items, such as darts or bottles of dishwashing detergent, which you can collect. These items are especially compelling to search for, as they're usually spread far and wide around the level, and once collected, they spruce up your sewer home -- the darts set up a board for the rats to play and the detergent causes bubbles to float out of the center pipe. Collecting stars and items gives you a greater sense of purpose for Remy's existence, and it's really all that is holding this game together. All in all, while Ratatouille has its enjoyable moments, the main missions leave you feeling a bit hungry for something meatier, while the tasks like slides or races spoil your appetite.

If you like to be tortured, you could just go to the store right now and pick up the game; you'll be very satisfied. However, something tells me that you and most people enjoy games that are fun to play, user-friendly, and engaging. If that's your case, there are plenty of games out there that will probably provide you with better gameplay and more fun for the whole family, from THQ's Tak series to others like Ubisoft's Rayman, Sony's Jak and Daxter, and EA's Ty, the Tasmanian Tiger, along with some other movie-based video games that were actually made with some love. Just keep looking; like I said at the beginning, you might have to look for cheese somewhere else…

I don't know anyone at Heavy Iron Studios, but I do know that deep down, most game developers believe their creations, these games of almost any genre or inspiration, are an art form, even if they'll admit, often a very commercial brand of art. Creators of games this poor, reckless and careless aren't artists, and they have no rights in alleging art as their professions. If they cared one bit about games or stake any fair claim in artistry, they'd have stayed up nights days on end to improve this game. Frankly, developers of this type perform a gross disservice to other practitioners of the medium, and THQ should have never let this one out the door, no matter how much revenue they'll earn in licensed sales. With titles so poor, they severely weaken their credibility even in the eyes of young, naïve, rather readily pleased gamers; the quick cash is just not worth the huge swath of a black mark on their industry reputation.

Ratatouille is a completely mediocre 3D platformer, but I find myself hating it more than usual thanks to its wanton abuse of such excellent source material. Unless you want your kid to learn all about stealing food from others, this is not a good choice for young fans of the movie.

PlayStation 3The Video Game Critic
You'll scurry through plenty of alleys, kitchens, and sewers, but the angular scenery would be more appropriate for a PS2 game. When you see pipes shaped like octagons, you have to wonder how much of the PS3's power is really being used. The camera controls are awkward and the load times are long. I did enjoy jazzy musical score, and the cut-scenes are done with good humor. Fans of the movie can probably bump up the grade by a letter, but for the rest of you, this one bargain bin title you can safely resist.
