Kung Fu Panda (2008, Game, 360) – 7/10 review

Creative Director: Joby Otero

Kung Fu Panda (2008)

7/10

Genuinely good fun movie game which successfully generates the atmosphere and reproduces the look of the better-than-expected movie. Jack Black’s voice work is critical (I actually laughed during the game, most unusual) but the gameplay is strong enough and keeps irritation and repetition to a minimum. As a bonus it looks nice and is animated with real character and lightness of touch. The Donkey Kong tribute works well and the game as a whole is consistently fun. Xbox 360 Achievements are slanted toward hardcore gamers so they have something to play for as well.

This Kung Fu Panda game contains very mild bad language and extreme, though largely comic and without lasting consequence, fantasy martial arts violence.

Classified PG by BBFC. Parental Guidance.
