Solid entertainment for anyone who wants Snoopy to meet the Red Baron
Great cutscenes, good level design, great music. It all fit together nicely.
It insists on displaying 4:3 aspect ratio, so best resolution is 1280 x 800. It also kept re-setting the sound configuration to 'Desktop stereo speakers' which was somewhat more annoying. Even though it is an arcade-style game, some of the levels can be quite hard. With an XBox 360 gamepad, the Force feedback effects can only be engaged by installing the open-source XBCD driver (you can hardly blame the game developers for this).
The Bottom Line
For anyone who has grown up with Peanuts, the entertainment value is huge. All of the great music is there, plus a reasonably good shot at the voice acting. The game itself is easy enough for all ages, although adults may have more trouble with the controls, but does feature some challenging missions. A good solid effort, I really enjoyed it.
