I bought this used, but still sealed, for £15, and I'd say that's the price you should pay, no more than that. This is a fun little game, and Wall E is very cute, but I find it quite monotonous. You have to travel around and get across obstacles - more obstacles appear as you get further in, but it's still all much the same. Saying that, I did get stuck on a few occasions and couldn't figure out what to do next! The game has a top down view and you can rotate it to suit your needs, which is very useful - you do need to do this to get past some obstacles. The controls are easy to use, and for actions such as throwing you have the option of using the touch screen or the buttons. To guide Wall E around you use the arrow keys. I think my summary of this game would be that it's probably best for kids, personally there isn't enough here to keep me amused but it would probably be good for a child.
The film was amazing, but how does this game compare? It is rather good on the DS, as it is 3D and the graphics are great. However, The gameplay is rather childish and is made for a younger audience so tasks are menial and somewhat boring and feels like a chore. I am sure it is a great adventure game, but it takes too long to get through the tutorial and into the real action. It follows the story of Wall-E, a robot on Earth, made to clean up rubbish, but one day meets Eve, and they get involved in a skyrocketing adventure to rescue mankind. The controls are easy and you can get Wall-E to do a range of things such as move blocks throw blocks, crush rubbish and so on to get to the next level. The game is ok, but not the best and not the most interesting. it will get you through hours of boredom, but does not excite as much as it should. The game is quite in depth as any other and i would recommend this for younger audiences. There is however, very little replay value. The game can be bought for less than £10 online, and i recommend getting it for a cheap price.
