[top]Review:

Presentation: 5,5
You're going to be lost if you haven't seen the movies, and staring at a cave wall isn't a very interesting storytelling device. Still, it's easy to get around the game.

Graphics: 6,0
When the cutscenes pull in for a close-up on one of the characters, the textures are a muddled mess. Still, most of the game looks OK with cheery colors and action.

Sound: 5,5
Most of the voices are passable but Diego and Buck don't sound right at all and Sid is super-grating. The music is completely forgettable as well -- it's not bad; it's just there.

Gameplay: 6,5
The variety of games is nice and multiplayer is actually fun. Single-player is way too easy though.

Lasting Appeal: 6,5
Chances are kids will tire of the game's story long before reaching its conclusion, but the multiplayer modes should provide some fun for sleepovers and Ice Age get-togethers.

OVERALL: 6,5 (Passable)
(out of 10 / not an average)

  • In the second part, the ice part could be a little tricky. Don't go too fast here, because you can fall easily off the edge.
  • In the second part, for the first time you will need to defeat dodo's. The dodo's are tricky, you have to get 2 dodo's off the edge. There are 2 very useless strategies. The first strategy is to collide against the dodo's. If you do this right, they won't have a chance to get away. The second strategy is to stand near the edge, the dodo's will try to collide against you but (most of the time) they will fall of the edge themselves.

  • In the second part, when you have to defeat the first 2 dodo's, go stand near the edge. The dodo's will try to collide you but they will fall off the edge (watch the video).
  • In the second part, don't go too quick over the brigde, be sure you have a big snowball, because you will easily fall!
  • In the second part, when you have to defeat the second 2 dodo's, you will have to collide them, the trick of standing next to the edge won't work here, because you will lose to much time.
