IGN: The Tale of Despereaux Review

Regardless of the version, Tale of Despereaux is the type of game you need to avoid at all costs. Despereaux's movement and jumping (especially on the PS2) is pretty much a disaster; combat is a serious exercise in button-mashing and the lack of camera control, as well as any real sense of depth, makes playing through Despereaux a chore. No matter where you look, you'll only see poorly executed game design.
