In generally, it was actually impressive for what would normally just be blown off as some kid's game. It was fun and immersive and amusing, and well worth the time.
Overall, Barnyard will provide an entertaining experience for younger gamers and fans of the movie. As long as you don’t mind your kids chasing around chicks with their milk cannons, this game might keep them occupied for a while.
Voilà un jeu à licence rafraîchissant ! Alors oui, il est évident qu'on n'atteint pas des sommets d'ingéniosité et de créativité, mais La Ferme En Folie a clairement de quoi occuper les cinéphiles en culotte courte. Plutôt que de reprendre le scénario du film en faisant se succéder des scènes d'action maladroites, on se retrouve ici avec une sorte de Grand Theft Auto bovin et délirant, sans violence qui plus est. De plus, l'utilisation du système de détection des mouvements de la Wii rend le soft un peu plus vivant que chez ses confrères de pixels, et ça, c'est tout de même une bonne chose. Tantôt drôle, tantôt poussif le jeu distille ses petits moments de bravoure et se laisse boire comme du petit lait. Amusant.
Despite the numerous activities offered, Barnyard runs into some problems. The item equipping system takes a lot of time to maneuver through, a frustrating task when gamers want to set up the right item. Some of the activities become monotonous, such as the mundane collecting missions and mixing together components to offer "mocktails" or recipes to other farm animals for cash. Finally, the game's content won't be for everyone, as Barnyard was clearly built for a younger audience and average players can complete the game in a few short hours. Regardless of its shortcomings, Barnyard's mini-games and activities on the farm make it worth at least a rental.
Barnyard will keep the kids busy for hours which should be enough to make any parent pick up a copy of the game, although the extra $20 for the Wii version is a little pricey. Barnyard is the typical THQ movie based game adaptation that has a lot of different genres crammed into the game, in this case the barn. Don't expect miracles, just a fun sand boxed movie based game that can hold your attention for a short while.
