It's refreshing to play a game like this. I don't think I've experienced one since Conker. Although this game is not nearly as complex as that, it works well to send Scrat on his way.

Outright Games' Ice Age Scrat's Nutty Adventure shows some passionate love for the film series and constructs a game that young gamers will eat up. Does it have a fair share of issues? Yes, the levels feel too big and there's not enough to do at times, but young gamers won't really need that intricate design and complication to enjoy it.

Ice Age Scrat's Nutty Adventure has definite room for improvement and polish, but I still suspect it'll find an audience. It has just enough challenge for kids, while older players might not mind an easier adventure if they're franchise fans or just looking for a competent 3D platformer. Definitely wait for a sale though, as the amount and quality of the content here doesn't match its launch price.

Even though Ice Age: Scrat's Nutty Adventure contains some ridiculous glitches and flat combat, it's still a fun 3D platformer that acts as a decent throwback to the PS2 era.

It’s a mistimed, mispriced decent game, and right decent isn’t enough.

Ice Age: Scrat's Nutty Adventures isn't a terrible game, but it is so old fashioned and average that it is difficult to recommend. If you have kids of the right age range and find it on sale, then it's fun enough. The lack of a movie to tie into leads to a particularly weak story that feels like it's tacking on a license instead of a genuine entry in the Ice Age series. Scrat may find his nut, but I was left unsatisfied by a functional but mediocre tie in.

With no Ice Age movie releasing in tandem with Scrat's Nutty Adventure, the choice to not give Just Add Water a few extra months to add polish is disappointing. At best, Ice Age: Scrat's Nutty Adventure is a decent distraction for kids.

In short, Ice Age Scrat's Nutty Adventure takes basic ideas from other 3D platformers and tries to show how impressive they are, when in reality they are just things you've seen before. If you are a big Ice Age fan, then this is a harmless experience that doesn't add to what the movies offer and rather imitates what came before it. For my money, I say let this one hibernate for the winter.

Ice Age: Scrat's Nutty Adventure might seem like fun on its surface, but it's a dull adventure that travels through an equally mediocre landscape.

Instead of being a brand new platformer, Ice Age: Scrat's Nutty Adventure feels like a remaster of a game from the early 2000s, and not a very good one either.

Scrat’s Nutty Adventure thinks kids are stupid and will just accept trash because they know the squirrel from the movies. Your kid deserves better.
