Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy's Grand Adventure is a side-scrolling adventure game based on the popular Peanuts franchise and an official tie-in to the The Peanuts Movie theatrical release. Snoopy runs, jumps, and bounces around through a variety of environments, with a second player able to help by using a second controller to take on the role of Snoopy's sidekick, Woodstock. Designed for all ages, the game features simple-to-learn controls and very mild violence.
Is It Any Good?
From the Great Pumpkin to the Kite-Eating Tree to the Flying Ace's dogfights against the Red Baron, the Peanuts gang has never been short of imagination. That same imagination shines in Snoopy's Grand Adventure when it comes to the setting and story but falls a bit short when it comes to gameplay. This is pretty much as straightforward and formulaic a platform experience as you'll find, with players running, jumping, climbing, and hovering through a number of environments, collecting jelly beans along the way. It's definitely a polished game, with good visuals and personality, but what it packs in style, it loses in substance.
Over the course of the game, Snoopy gains access to new abilities via costumes, which can be changed at certain spots on each level. On the one hand, it's a good way to keep the gameplay from feeling too repetitive. But it also forces multiple playthroughs of the same levels to collect everything, artificially inflating the game's length and making it feel repetitive all over again. Still, though the game may not exactly be the grand adventure the title claims, it's still a good adventure that has appeal for younger gamers and Peanuts fans.
