The parents' guide to what's in this game.

Positive Messages

Remy tries to help his fellow rats, and also maintain a friendship with humans.

Violence & Scariness

This is part of a movie franchise.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this game, based on the Ratatouille movie, is best for ages 7-13. Violent content is pretty minimal: Kids will see the same gun-toting Grandma from the beginning the movie, but when the chefs chase Remy out of the kitchen, they simply pick him up by the tail before he wiggles out of their grasp.

Good for younger Wii players

This is a good game for my nearly six-year-old son. I especially like that when he makes a mistake, instead of having to start over from the beginning of the g... Continue reading

Unnecessary amounts of violence, swearing and sexual content.

Wow. What an absolute orgy of blood, gore, strong language, and pornography. The player, who takes control of Remy the rat, is meant to kill everyone and everyt... Continue reading

I remember this being really good.

A 5 star?! I remember this game being awesome, but is it really good enough to get a 5 star?

What's it about?

Based on the hit movie Ratatouille, the video game presents six beautifully drawn environments that are jam-packed with intriguing interactive objects. As culinarily talented rat Remy, you explore these environments to discover ways for a rat to move from the kitchen floor to the rafters as you take on over 20 missions. While, at its core, this is a platform puzzle game, it's more than that. There are special cooking games, wild rides down sewer pipes, chase games, and logic games. For families with kids of different ages, the game can be played on five levels of difficulty. Also, there are several mini-games for two players to enjoy. And four players can compete for best score in Championship Mode.

Is it any good?

Based on the charming animated film that became the darling of the 2007 summer movie offerings, RATATOUILLE the video game does justice to this beguiling license. While the story line is a little different, the characters and environments are the same and equally enchanting. The animations are adorable and fun, and the experience is further elevated by the variety of gameplay, which calls for players to be inventive as they scurry around as a rat.

If your family liked the Ratatouille movie, they will adore this console game.
