Chicken Little is a breath of fresh air in a sea of mediocre movie based games. With more gameplay variety than the average game and just an overall happy feeling, there is a lot to be enjoyed here for both fans of the movie and gamers alike. While the game does not bring anything new to the genre, it is a highly enjoyable game that not only sticks close to the original source material but also expands upon in some areas. Chicken Little can proudly stand next to Aladdin and the few other Disney animated movie based games.

Chicken Little is a serviceable game that juices Disney's storytelling mastery for all its worth. Experienced gamers should, obviously, look elsewhere, but kids and the content-conscious could certainly do much worse.
There are certain constants in the universe that people can count on. The sun will always rise. Water will always be wet. And a new Disney cartoon will always result in a merchandising blitz. The latest proof of this is Disney's upcoming feature film, Chicken Little. This new cartoon has already spawned everything from plush dolls to dinnerware sets. So it should come as no surprise to anyone that Disney has also released a video game based on the film. What may surprise people though is just how fun this game really is.
Finding a good game adaptation of a popular kid's flick is near impossible. Finding an excellent one is near miraculous. Finding a decent one, though, that's manageable. And that's precisely what Chicken Little from developer Avalanche is. It's not great in any one particular area, but overall it's far better than most games engineered to cash in on popular movies. And for those that don't know, Chicken Little is Disney's new computer animated retelling of the popular kid's story about a young chicken who believes the sky is falling.
Chicken Little is a tough game to recommend to specifically adults or kids. That’s because it may be too basic for adults with its focus on platforming and simplistic mini-games, yet the difficulty of some missions may turn kids off from it entirely. For me, it was easiest to trade-off turns: when the game was easy, I let the kids play, when it was too tough for them, I took over. But I can’t see either side enjoying the game on their own, it’s truly a family game to say the least, because without both kids and adults playing, it’s not going to hold your interest. Overall, I did enjoy it, but would suggest renting it before buying.
Chicken Little is a warm and humorous tale of the classic underdog story told through the eyes of a chicken. This is a title that managed to make me laugh many times before it was over, which was a welcome surprise. The core gameplay mechanics keep this from being a purchase for any gamer over the age of twelve, but any players looking for a sweet tale that isn’t all about the action and the killing, this is worth a brief look. A perfect rainy day rental, Disney’s Chicken Little brings nothing new to the platforming genre, but rather wraps up classic elements into a short and sweet little package. A perfect gift for a younger gamer after seeing the film, any older players will breeze through it too fast to warrant the game’s price tag.
Chicken Little s'efforce d'exploiter toute la richesse du long-métrage pour proposer une aventure variée qui se renouvelle au moyen de phases de jeu très différentes. Le problème, c'est que le gameplay est largement perfectible et que les épreuves sont trop simplistes pour réellement nous amuser. On le conseillera donc uniquement aux plus jeunes qui auraient envie de voir le monde à travers les yeux d'un minuscule petit poulet.
The Next Level
With very pitiful control and a learning curve that defies how difficult the game truly is, this isn't something I would pick up for your children under the age of ten. Give your kids the pleasure of playing a platform game with some actual depth behind the easy jumping, running and shooting; because this game is definitely not it. Respectfully, Disney completely raises the bar when it comes to the silver screen but should probably lay off videogames, because as it seems more was left out of this game than included.
