Let me tell you the truth about how much I love the movie Wall-E. Not only did I pay to see it twice, but I also bawled my eyes out both times. So when I finally had my hands on Wall-E the Video Game, you can imagine the high expectations I had for it. Would it be a spectacular extended version of the movie? Or would it be just a terrible made-for-TV version?

Here are my findings: I. Love. It.

Disney Pixar has created an amazing cinematic experience here. Not only does it weave scenes from the film into your adventure, but it really feels like you're IN the movie. You'll play both Wall-E and Eve to help them solve puzzles, fly through obstacles, and tumble through space.

Pretty exciting, isn't it? And don't worry about the controls being too hard to understand for the kiddies (or yourself). This one is ideal for beginners because there are tutorials on the basic controls for moving around, jumping, and controlling the camera.

The game play is simple and kid-friendly, since you basically move from point A to B. But I'd argue that adults would also enjoy the more advanced moves, like unlocking secret passages and traveling the more difficult routes. And with the multiplayer mode, you and your kids can play together.
