Pocket Gamer writes: "There are some franchises that, on the surface, appear to offer quite a lot to a movie tie-in game, but ultimately leave them wanting. Ice Age is one of them. It offers three decidedly diverse characters in a setting rife with conflict, yet the game struggles to understand quite what to do with them.
Perhaps three main characters is simply too many? If there was only the one, it'd be easier to developer that character's abilities, purpose and goal, but the three animals of Ice Age worked in the film because they pulled against each other. In Mammoth Mayhem, they're individually entertaining natures are severely curtailed."
