GameSpot writes: "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs provides a good deal of variety and the occasional funny moment. However, it doesn't offer any real challenge, and the experience is short lived. While the action and platforming sections are fun to play, the racing and shooter levels are too simplistic and require only a modicum of skill and some button mashing to complete. The multiplayer modes, meanwhile, vary wildly in terms of quality. Ice Age is a game that younger players and fans of the movie will enjoy, but it's a game that attempts to cover a lot of bases without doing anything particularly well".
