Another kids' movie tie-in - oh, the joys. Still, this one isn't so bad. It takes the form of a third-person action adventure where you, Boog the Grizzly bear and your little friend Elliot, the wise cracking Deer with one antler, save the creatures of the forest from the big, nasty hunters (yes, it's really that clichéd).
The graphics and sound are rather lazily implemented, mind you, and to be frank Boog the Bear looks like Boog the big turd most of the time. There are 25 missions consisting pretty much entirely of fetching stuff and scaring away hunters, and you can use the talents of the forest creatures to help you. It's mildly distracting, but will only take you about five hours to play through. For the hardened gamer this is a definite miss, but should be reasonably engaging for very young children. Probably not many of you lot, then.
