Flushed Away review

  • A true, simple platformer done pretty well
  • Level designs
  • Actually a good movie game
  • No-brainer combat
  • Occasionally weird controls
  • Drunken camera

Everyone knows movie-based games are usually the most advertised - and least playable - games in the industry, almost to the point of making us disgusted. However, in defiance of the toilet bowl reference in the title, Flushed Away proves to be a fair adaptation of the film and a solid adventure for kids.

Flushed Away looks typical, with makes-no-sense levels (though, in this case, we viewed that as a creative positive), elementary obstacles and nothing but the press-the-X-button-a-lot strategy required. However, a little more love went into this game than most of this genre. The levels are surprisingly lengthy, and most show new ways to get through as you advance. Some of the levels have a few odd schemes (why are the books on the shelf moving?), but then again, this premise wasn't very realistic to begin with, so there's little shock there.
