In the end, Garfield's Funfest is appealing to the same demographic as the direct-to-DVD movie itself: youngsters. While it does fairly well for itself overall, this is clearly a game for the "young people" and not for the thirty-three-year-old DS owner who just finished Chrono Trigger. Longtime Garfield fans can appreciate the references and authenticity, but the game's short length and low difficulty level won't satisfy those who have been dominating side-scrollers for decades.

Children may be captivated by the game's graphics for a short time, and the gameplay, while mediocre, is easy and accessible enough for young kids, but they'll be done with the game faster than you can say "I hate Mondays." Parents looking for a good game for their children would be better served by any number of other, more substantial options. Those looking for an authentic Garfield experience would be much better off eating some lasagna and taking a nap than playing this game.

I spent more time YouTubing old episodes of Garfield and Friends than I did playing this game from beginning to end. And I had more fun doing that. Most of Garfield's Fun Fest is a mediocre platformer, and the rest is a completely forgettable minigame collection. Even if this game was good, it's only half an hour long, which is not long enough to charge money for.

Look, the game is completely disappointing to young and old fans, and the fat cat has been around for so long, isn't it about time he was given a decent title?

As a mainstream game, Garfield's Fun Fest is absolutely horrendous, and even as a kid's game it fares little better. A complete lack of effort on the part of the developers has led to a title that has boring, repetitive gameplay, poor sound and visuals, lack of humor or even a mildly entertaining storyline, and a total dearth of value. It's a textbook example of a bad game, and I highly advise against playing, much less purchasing, Garfield's Fun Fest.
