The game, like the film, follows the story of the robot Wall.e. Set in the future and all humans have left earth leaving Wall.e and other units behind to clean up the mess in the hope of one day returning. Wall.e is the last remaining robot that continues to clean up by taking the rubbish and compressing it into cubes.
After coming across Eve, a robot sent to find plant life on earth, Wall.e's life changes as he becomes friends with Eve.
The game starts with a tutorial of all the different actions and movements of Wall.e. You learn how to move Wall.e, make cubes from the rubbish to throw as well as his laser. The game play is simple enough and ok for adults and children alike.
During the game Wall.e has to collect cells to open up new parts of the levels as well as performing mini games. The game starts on earth and after Wall.e's encounter with Eve goes on to the ship where the humans are where Eve and Wall.e have to help the humans.
The game is rated a U so is suitable for all ages but may be challenging in places for younger players and can sometimes seem slightly repetitive. The graphics are good and the game has some nice added touches. There are also some extras unlocked when the game is completed.
Wall.E on the PSP is not too bad and if you liked Disney's box office smash hit movie then you may well like this game as well. Wall-E is a waste allocation load lifter droid. This particular model has the task of cleaning up the mess that we make of the Earth in the not too distant future. Following on from years of pollution and a reluctance to recycle has turned the planet into a place with rubbish and junk discarded.
After an encounter with a robot named Eve, Wall-E's world is turned upside down and he realises theres more to life than just cleaning up our litter that we've left behind.
I found the gameplay in this game to be pretty simple in itself which is good. You have to move round the various environments hunting for various items that will enable you to pass through locked doors and obstacles that stand in your way of completing each level. Your character of Wall-E is able to crush rubbish down into little cubes and throw at any attacking enemies or use them to break open containers.
In addition to these cubes you can throw he also has a laser which he uses for slicing through obstacles and he can also change into a cube himself which is very handy to use yourself as a battering ram and smash objects up.
Visually the game is good and when Wall-E eventually arrives at Eve's home the graphics change from the dirty rubbish of the Earth's surface to the clean, shiny interior of the luxury space cruiser Axiom. Once on there he gets assistance from some of the crew's androids which help him along the way. The details are fantastic and on the cruiser then the graphics are better than on the dull surface of the Earth.
Much of this game is spent exploring and puzzle-solving but also engaging in fights with enemies so they have found the right mix for me to keep the interest and challenges going. Things do not get too repetitive as there are some mini-games you have to play from time to time.
To add more variety to the game you can also play as Eve although playing as her is not quite as interesting or challenging so you will want to switch back soon.
Overall this is a pretty pleasant transition from big screen to console and it's fairly entertaining with nearly 30 levels. It will definately keep younger players content for a while and is not bad at all.
