What if mankind had to leave Earth, and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off? After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, WALL-E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knickknacks) when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE. Joining WALL-E on his journey is a cast of characters including a pet cockroach, and a heroic team of malfunctioning misfit robots. Take control of WALL-E and EVE and explore 10 worlds filled with non-stop action and adventure, along with head-to-head multiplayer challenges...

WALL-E is based on the Disney/Pixar movie and allows fans of the film to take control of WALL-E and/or EVE and explore 10 worlds filled with non-stop action and adventure, carry out intense missions, dodge dangerous enemies, solve puzzles and navigate your way through a futuristic world.

Young fans of the movie will be able to relive key moments from the movie as well as witness new storylines and explore additional environments not seen in the film. There are also multiplayer challenges and plenty of minigames.

While far from a bad game, WALL-E is probably a little too hard for young players and a little too childish for older gamers. Problems with the camera angles also don't help or the fact that it's very easy (it happened to me twice on different levels) to get into a situation where WALL-E is stuck, resulting in the player having to restart the game. No doubt this is down to the fact that the game was rushed, out before it was fully tested, in order to coincide with the movie's release.

The graphics aren't particularly noteworthy - there are numerous similar platform games that look better, but the puzzles are just varied enough to ensure that they don't get too old too quickly. There's a solid single player game, but you'll get a much bigger blast out of the multiplayer side of this.

An interesting distraction for fans of the movie, but by no means an essential purchase.
