Ice Age is a 2002 platform game based on the film of the same name, developed by Artificial Mind and Movement, published by Ubisoft Entertainment and released for the Game Boy Advance.

Why It Sucks

  1. Ugly graphics.
  2. Awful controls.
  3. Poor enemy AI.
  4. Horrible collision detection.
  5. Awkward level design.
  6. All the boss battles are just easy and simple. Speaking of which, they are just plain stupid.
  7. The game has little to no story, despite being based on a movie.
  8. False Advertising: The cover has Diego on it, but in the actual game you only play as Manny or Sid; however, Diego does appear in the game, but only as a checkpoint in some levels.
  9. Terrible sound effects.
  10. The game's pretty short.
  11. Very poor grasp of the source material; for example, in the first level Scrat (or at least a creature who looks like him) appears as an enemy who attacks you for no reason. Not to mention there is another Scrat appearing as an enemy again when you killed him earlier.
  12. Boring gameplay.
  13. Some animals like the bees and skunk were never seen in the actual film.

Redeeming Quality

  1. The music is great.
