The first, and probably last, milk-squirtin' cow mini-game title for the Wii.

Controlling the game is probably the best aspect. As you run around, a cursor is displayed on screen wherever you point your Wii Remote, this is where you would squirt milk. As you run around picking up stuff, you must motion with the remote like you...

First off, let me be honest: I hadn't seen the movie Barnyard prior to playing this game. It turns out that the movie is a simple story of a youth growing up and developing into an unexpected leader, just set against the backdrop of a bunch of...

Very immersive, feels like you're set in the film ; Sandbox play makes it feel more open-ended, less on-rails ; The graphics fit the game perfectly and honor the source

Lack of lots of voice from characters ; No multiplayer

Really a pretty fun game. Worth a rental at least. If you've got a kid, it's probably worth buying, especially if they enjoyed the movie.

This bovine saga plays less like a movie and more like an open-ended party game

Some minigames can be addictive ; Open-ended gameplay ; Style and humor are faithful to the movie

Horribly awkward controls ; The minigames are too easy ; Lack of spoken dialogue

Barnyard (2006) on Wii


Based on Paramount Pictures' and Nickelodeon Movies' theatrical release, this adventure game offers a humorous look at how farm animals really live when humans are not around. Players start as the new cow on the block and work their way though...

We spend a day in the life of a cow.

A lesson in how to milk a movie licence

The sandbox world is great. The controls work well. The minigames get boring.

GTA for kids/girls!


I really enjoyed this game and found it very addictive. I agree with some other the other reviewers in that some will love it and others hate it, but it's definitely worth a go. It has the feel of a GTA game (although the graphics are not brilliant),...

OK but thats all.


Kids enjoyed it. So did my husband. I got bored fairly quickly. I would recommend giving it a go. As it is probably a type of game that will be fine for some and not for others. My boys did find it quite funny when some of the characters did funny...
