Kung Fu Panda review

What’s that you say? A non-horrible movie tie-in?

Pros

  • Simple
  • intuitive gameplay
  • Cute
  • sometimes funny characters
  • Lush scenery

Cons

  • Standard rescue story
  • Bit of a button masher
  • Ethically questionable animal fights

He’s called Po and is a learner in the fine arts of fight, but when the Furious Five masters get kidnapped, he has to rescue them, learn their skills and save the neighbourhood. The gameplay is simple and easy to pick up, the characters are cute and occasionally funny, and the scenery is lush beyond usual tie-in standards. They’ve put a spot of thought into this one, and although at times it becomes a bit of a random button masher and stylus thrasher, its sweetness keeps it just the right side of average.
