Er was een tijd dat spelletjes gebaseerd op films sowieso waardeloos bleken. De laatste tijd krijgen we tussen alle rotzooi gelukkig steeds meer geslaagde 'vertalingen'. Sjakie en de Chocoladefabriek valt jammer genoeg in de rotzooicategorie.

Op internet vind je genoeg Flash-games die een stuk amusanter zijn en geen aanslag plegen op je geldbeugel, want dertig euro hiervoor is echt te veel.

Gesetzt den Fall, Sie wollen jemandem beibringen, wie man die linke Maustaste drückt, sollten Sie zu Charlie und die Schokoladenfabrik greifen – denn mehr brauchen Sie für das schwache Actionspiel nicht. In 13 Minispielchen suchen Sie unter Zeitdruck Lollis, grübeln an Schalterrätseln oder absolvieren kurze Gedächtnisübungen. Der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist dabei stark auf Kinder zugeschnitten – Strafen gibt’s keine. Das ist auch gut so, denn mit der verkorksten Maussteuerung haben Sie schon genug zu tun: Charlie bewegt sich selten in die gewünschte Richtung.

Sadly, the novelty soon wears thin; you’re constantly pushed down a narrow path — allowing for little of the exploration that makes Mario games so thrilling — and while ordering Wonka’s helpers to do your dirty work is fun for a while, the routine soon becomes crushingly dull.

Overall, the game is beautifully created and the environments are bright and lush with color. The voice acting and the musical score are done well but not overdone and there is just enough charm to give this game potential. But design glitches and annoying camera perspectives sabotage the gameplay, which is the most important part of a game and the entire experience ultimately becomes more of a frustration rather than an enjoyment.

Cette version PC de Charlie et la Chocolaterie est assez différente de ses homologues sur consoles de salon mais une chose ne change pas : aucune n'arrive à la cheville du film dont elles sont adaptées. Et c'est d'autant plus vrai que cet opus PC est très mal réalisé, que les énigmes manquent d'intérêt et que le jeu s'avère être, au final, une sombre bouse qui n'arrivera à convaincre personne.

If you enjoyed the book and either of the two movies, leave it at that. Any attempt to extend your enjoyment of the subject matter by playing this game will leave a bad, bitter taste in your mouth that no chocolate bar or sweet candy will erase. You've been duly warned.

Admittedly these are issues that came about with Tim Burton's retelling of the tale, but they filter down into the realm of badly made movie tie-in games where I, as a PCZ peon, have the power to criticize them. Quite why children aren't terrified of Wonka's murderous tendencies and purple outfit is beyond me, but this will only really be enjoyed by young sugar-addled Wonka fans.

"Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" parece ser um típico caso de título lançado antes do tempo. Muitas partes parecem estar incompletas, confusas ou simplesmente não funcionam. Uma pena estragar bons gráficos e áudio, além de algumas idéias e formatos promissores que poderiam ter sido melhor explorados. Mas, como foi feito, resta lamentar pelo que se tornou um dos piores games do ano.
