The Ant Bully (Wii)

 

Because the Wii is similar to the GameCube in terms of its hardware, it was inevitable that companies would try to capitalize on the Wii launch by quickly porting over games previously published for the GameCube. Of course, you'd reasonably expect the...

One more cinematic sermon on teamwork and I'm setting the aardvark loose

Exploring the colony ; Shooting silk all over the place ; Gliding around with rose petals

Tedious collection missions ; Unpredictable controls ; Stale graphics

The story might expand on the movie's offering a bit, but the limp dialogue - heck, you'll sometimes hear the same tired ambient line three times in a row - varies in volume so wildly you have to practically turn the music off just to be sure of...

The Ant Bully Review

 

The Ant Bully is one of those moderately successful computer animated feature films now turned video game. Ported over from the GameCube, the Wii version boasts some new control mechanics, ...

Sure, running around and performing such fetch-quests as bringing back food for the colony or collecting pieces of a weapon may not be fun for your average 25 year old, but in the eyes of an eight year-old this is great stuff. So, if you look at it...

To start with, let's get a show of hands: How many people were worried that the decision to produce a new console with architecture similar to the GameCube would result in a lot of lazy and hasty ports to the new system? Let's see… 1… 2… 3… um, okay....

While it may be easy to slam the Ant Bully's incarnation on the Wii as yet another shameless port to a system full of them, this will not be one of them. The Wii was *the* gift for the holidays, and they are still in short supply, and while many of the...

A good starter adventure ; Innovative use of the nunchuck ; Bruce Campbell

Yet more enemies difficulty who is defined by color ; The game repeats itself a little too often

While most licensed games end up being commericials that you pay for, The Ant Bully draws well from the source material, but still manages

Ants spend most of their time collecting stuff. Guess what you get to do in this game!

Some good missions

Boring collection missions define the game experience ; Broken/useless Wiimote controls ; Nunchuk controls prevent comfortable controller holding ; Uninspired and repetitive voice acting

The Ant Bully is a cookie-cutter collect-a-thon adventure, and the game makes absolutely no attempt to hide it from the player. It's also another example of why licensed videogames tend to suck. It's also another port to the Wii that, from a gamer's...

The Ant Bully

 

The Ant Bully, a CGI-based animated movie released in late November, received mixed reviews from critics. Although praised for its animation and voice acting, it was also criticized for being a little too similar to other recently released movies such...

The Wii Remote and Nunchuk combo is used in innovative and fun ways, particularly in regards to camera control ; Good voice acting and soundtrack, even if it does loop a bit too often in a few key spots ; Charming cast of characters

Technically a mess, with glitches and inconsistencies throughout the game ; PS2-level graphics ; Repetitive mission structure

Despite the sloppy port, The Ant Bully is well worth a look for younger gamers. While the game’s content isn't that special, and the graphics are some of the worst on the system, the way the game uses the Wii Remote & Nunchuk makes it an enjoyable...

While out one day in the backyard flooding ant holes, Lucas Nickle is minimized to the size of an ant by an insect shaman determined to teach the Ant Bully a lesson. Based on the 2006 Warner Bros. picture, players will guide Lucas through this new world,

Don't bother

 

My kids couldn't wait to return it. My 10 & 7 year old lasted only 5 mins each - controls were terrible, gameplay boring. I developed a headache watching them flounder & moan. We sent it back immediately. A waste of time.
