This is a movie for children and the young at heart.
It has humor, action and even video gaming nostalgia for "older" gamers.
I enjoyed watching it with my wife and daughter, who liked it too.

Great story told in a way that is reminiscent of the great Pixar stories. John Lasseter's finger prints are indelibly stamped all over the narrative. The story is poignant form an adult point of view and filled with enough eye candy to get all the oohs and aahs you'll want from your kids.
I loved seeing all of my own childhood gaming "friends" coming back for some screen time. My daughter and I had to sit down in front of the computer back home so she could learn about Q-bert and others.

Unique twist on video games. Amazingly, managed to get me liking the characters. Interesting plot turns. Who would think you could say such a thing about an animation like this. Yes, a bit sappy, but simple, fun, escapist entertainment that will make you smile and may even wet an eye momentarily.

This movie was awesome! It's what you would get if you took Pixar's Toy Story concept and applied it to video games instead of toys. It's a glimpse of what video game characters do when we're not playing them, along with several other themes that make for a great story and lovable characters.
Any gamer who grew up in the Nintendo era is probably going to love this movie. There are lots of cameo appearances from other games, though that's just a part of what made this movie so great. Lots of laughs, action, and a bit of drama make this great for gamers of all ages!
