It's a game I can call cute, fun and engaging without the expected "for a licensed title" caveat in the fine print. For its platforming genre, intended audience and even a reasonably more expansive group, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, though brief and simple, is a success. There are some studio-issue clips in some of the grander cut scenes, making for easy eye candy, but even the in-engine cut scenes are sharp enough and well animated. Ice Age is spot-on entertainment for children aged about 6 to perhaps 12 on the high side, and it's even entertaining for adults who want a hybrid platformer with lots of varied action in most levels, but without putting us through the wringer. Basically, the title is a good choice for quick summer play."
