Penguins are cute. Really cute. There's no need to animate then and make them dance, but the movie is out and the game must follow. This is law. So what are the little kiddiewinks getting for their pocket money? A weird mix of rhythm action games and checkpoint races, that's what. Even at their absolute hardest, however, they're as easy as wetting yourself - but you're constantly encouraged and praised throughout by the various characters anyway. Happy Feet is very much aimed at the under sevens and as such is a pleasant little game that jogs along nicely. It's sickeningly sweet and wholesome, but then GTA: Penguins Packin' Heat would hardly be a great idea. Actually, sod that, it really would. Can we have that instead next time?
