New movies bring with them new video games. It is neat to see family movies like Ice Age Continental Drift get the video game treatment. Ice Age Continental Drift Arctic Games is a mini game compilation. There are ten competitive mini games in Ice Age Continental Drift Arctic Games. Players can pick the herd or the pirates crew.
I need to warn all ya'll about something. Ice Age Continental Drift Arctic Games will work up a sweat. This Xbox 360 home console video game incorporates the Kinect sensor in all aspects of the game play. I was dripping in sweat once I completed the story mode. That was eleven mini games back to back. The team with the most wins earns the treasure of fruit.
Ice Age Continental Drift Arctic Games looks really nice. The characters and environments all scream Ice Age. They all animate as I would expect them to. There is some mild cartoon violence here and there in some of the mini games in Ice Age Continental Drift Arctic Games. We smash through ice, launch Scrat and more.
Expect some witty banter in Ice Age Continental Drift Arctic Games. Certain characters will insult other characters, as well as some light threats. The music in Ice Age Continental Drift Arctic Games is good, and the voice acting is wonderful. I found myself laughing on more than one mini movie in Ice Age Continental Drift Arctic Games. Sid has some of the best parts of this game.
The one area of Ice Age Continental Drift Arctic Games that I am not overly fond of is the controls. Some of the mini games were easy to control, and others were maddeningly frustrating. Glacier Hopping could have used some more instructions. I kept trying to jump the gap, not realizing I needed to stop and wait for the ice to move. I also spent close to five times the required time trying to beat it.
Ice Age Continental Drift Arctic Games is good game for families in a couple of ways. First it helps us get off the couch and exercise. Second, it helps us get in touch with friendly competition. Two family members can enjoy Ice Age Continental Drift Arctic Games at the same time. It is neat to see Activision using the Kinect sensor in the proper fashion.
