North America Retail Box ArtUnited Kingdom Retail Box ArtUsually when playing a video game, particularly a movie license, you end up playing some kind of macho superhero with a black belt in GBH and a penchant for very large guns. In Finding Nemo you get to control a neurotic clownfish. This obviously limits the options available within the game, but the developers have nevertheless managed to create a charming and enjoyable title that's true to the events and spirit of the movie. The game can be viewed from any of three angles (side-on, front and back) and generally takes the form of a chase sequence or a more puzzle-oriented maze-like adventure. In one, for example, you must negotiate a maze of jellyfish, in another avoid the unwanted proddings of a scuba-diver as he attempts to catch you from behind. Clearly aimed at younger fans of the film, Finding Nemo is not particularly difficult or complex, but the graphics are generally very good and the voiceovers, featuring most of the cast from the movie, are excellent. The load times though are atrocious and almost ruin what is otherwise a perfect way to keep unruly children quiet and entertained. --David Jenkins
