A panda becoming a kung-fu master is unlikely. A game based on a kids' movie being fun and engaging is also unlikely. But "Kung Fu Panda: The Game" from Activision, manages both.
Movie-based games often run into problems trying to coordinate their release with their big-screen brethren, but "Kung-Fu Panda" succeeds in making a game that will be enjoyed by the film's target audience.
Gamers take the role of Po the Panda in 13 levels of "Kung-Fu Panda: The Game." Gamers will also occasionally play as his teacher, Shifu, and the other Kung Fu masters.
