Curious George is a 2006 platformer based on the 2006 film of the same name. It was developed by Monkey Bar Games (also known for developing Dora the Explorer: Journey to the Purple Planet) and published by Namco.

Plot

The plot is the same as the 2006 movie.

Bad Qualities

  1. The graphics look terrible; they look like something out of a fifth generation game even games such as Rayman Raving Rabbids, Viva Piñata, Kirby Air Ride, and Rockstar's Bully look better in comparison.
  2. Horribly stiff controls, especially on the jumping, the double jump becomes inactive after you press the jump button after one second, it should be an easy no-problem thing, but no, that means you have to press it away after you press the jump button.
  3. In the part where you have to stay on the roof-tops in order to not be seen, there's an invisible wall- no wait, it's just this one randomly open pathway how are you ever going to see it, you might just walk past it.
  4. Extremely short length of gameplay, can be simply beaten in under one hour.
  5. Repetitive on-loop music.
  6. Crappy FMV cutscenes, ripped from the movie and re-voiced.
  7. The mini-games are boring, simple, pointless, and repetitive at the same time.
  8. These characters such as Ted, Curious George, and other characters just don't transfer that well to 3D.
  9. There's not much you can do with the controls than just jump, curiosity pointing, and crawling.
  10. Bad lip-syncing with the gameplay.

Good Qualities

  1. Some of the levels are fun to play.
  2. The game is surprisingly challenging for it's target audience.
  3. Although the music can be repetitive, it is at least kind of catchy.
  4. It is at least faithful to the movie it's based on.
  5. The call-shaded graphics look like the movie it's based on.
  6. Good gameplay.

Trivia

  • The Nintendo DS and PSP versions were listed on the game's website, but were eventually cancelled.

Reception

The game received "mixed or average reviews" on all platforms.
