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.

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 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.

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.

Video Game Generation
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.

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.

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.

Gamestyle
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.

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. Note: The Wii version has different (and worse) control.

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.

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.

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.

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.
