Who better than the mischievous Curious George to star in a video game adventure? Based on the animated film, Curious George is a video game that features rich colors, a fun story line, and kid appeal. It's very challenging for little ones, however, and it should be kept in mind that adults (or older siblings) will need to intervene in order to minimize frustration.

I wanted to enjoy this game, and I get tired of reviewers always knocking a game because it’s designed for children, as if they don’t deserve games, too. However, this game just misses the mark of its target audience, due to the frustrating moments caused by the too sensitive controls and other logistic problems. I would recommend trying a console version over the PC game, if possible, unless parents have a state-of-the-art gamepad for their PC.

Для ребенка 6-7 лет — самое то. А вот старшему поколению Curious George, пожалуй, покажется не аппетитнее банки детского питания.

Last year, a similar kind of platformer was released alongside the animated film Madagascar. That game was similarly simplified for the sake of appealing to a younger audience, but it managed to simplify things without dumbing them down to utter banality. Curious George seems to have no other goal than to be a game that has a cute, marketable monkey in it. It's not much fun, regardless of what age group you belong to, and there's just not enough of the actual story to make it legit. If your kids just can't get enough of that delightful monkey after seeing the movie, buy them a stuffed animal, a lunchbox, or anything else featuring that smiling monkey face. Just don't drop $40 on this dull, three-hour game.

I will never fault a game for not being violent but that doesn't mean it should be void of fun. Even Curios George himself wouldn't find much interest in this game should ever come across it - and as we all know, he's exceptionally curious. Rent it - and forget it.
