Quoted from Over the Hedge Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Over the Hedge reviews & previews
"Merely 'doing the job' might offend the proud sensibilities of the gaming purist, but Over The Hedge is quite obviously a decent attempt to make the most of the license, and isn't the bloodless exercise that we feared it would be. Rated next to proper, real life combat platform games like Jak & Daxter and Sly Raccoon it's evidently a pale shadow of what else is out there, but next to other kids' games it's a massive improvement over what we've seen this year - little Shannon or Justin will be over the moon to be able to play as their favourite movie characters. Right or wrong, that's the point."
"A few unique touches are overshadowed by crushingly dull gameplay in this perfunctory animated movie tie-in."
"...looking at pure entertainment value for a younger license like this, Over the Hedge falls just under Ice Age 2: The Meltdown as a game we aren’t ashamed to pass on to our younger family members. The gameplay is simple enough for anyone to get into while still allowing for the necessary depth for older gamers, the experience is well-rounded with great extra content but is hurt – much like nearly every licensed game in existence – by the confusingly “necessary” need for rushed mini-games."
