Having enjoyed the VeggieTale videos for years, I had expected that a video game licensed by the same company would be of similar quality. Sadly, that is not the case. I gave this game today to my seven year old son and he quickly became frustrated with the dodgy controls, time limit, and overall poor game play. Perhaps ten years age this would have been seen as a cutting edge game. However, this game has the appearance of a project thrown together over a weekend by a group of not overly skilled junior programmers. P.S. Dear Big Idea, in order to get people to learn from your game as they play, you need to make a game that people will, in fact, want to play.

My son (who is 5) loves everything Veggietale. Buying him anything Veggie related and he's going to be happy. He also really loves to play video games; this seemed like the perfect fit. He played this game for about 20 minutes and turned it off. I've tried several times to get him interested in picking it back up with no luck. I then played it to see if I could get some interest from him...no luck. When a 5 year old Veggie lover doesn't want to play, there is something seriously wrong with this game.

Wow, I was super disappointed with this game. I have always loved Veggie Tales and enjoyed putting it infront of my preschooler. This Christmas she got a GameBoy Advance SP and this game seemed like a great idea. After all, Veggie Tales is geared for a younger audiance. WRONG!

This game is frustrating even for adults who are serious gamers. You have to sit through demos on each level or you miss key sequences. The game is run on an impossible timer for anyone under the age of 12. Its set up like the old time Mario's where you jump from platform to platform, except their are ridiculious expectations. Characters that give you 10 seconds to get across the screen and then three floors up, some that if you are injured by them they reverse ALL the controls.

There is no educational value, no traditional Veggie Tale Christian message, no hand eye coordiniation (possible for a pre-schooler), no memory required. I guess the only thing I can teach my 4 year old using this game is how to control your temper when you are frustrated.

I am very disappointed with Big Idea and Veggie Tales... I'd suggest they not bother to put another game out because NO ONE is going to buy it. If you are looking for a real game try Pokemon.

When comparing with game with its PS2 equivalent, it arguably shies from any expectations. However, I still found this game quite enjoyable as a 12-year-old because of the innocent atmosphere and fun artwork. The gameplay is actually quite a challenge, so it isn't for the younger audience I'm sure the developers were shooting for. Needless to say, this was worth the four dollars I paid for it.
