Boosty from Daily Joystick writes; "Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs is another movie to video game release. Unfortunately given this, it's often met with the videogame industry stereotype that the game basically is going to be poor. The truth is many movie to video game releases are indeed poor and thus amplifies this stereotypical argument.
However, to dismiss these games is also foolhardy as well. I do believe the best reviewer is the gamer themselves, as ultimately everyone has a different experience when playing through a game. Despite Metacritic scores and averages, your opinion may differ vastly to theirs, and it's with this that I encourage you to try this game, despite the fact that it's not groundbreaking or brilliant, it is fun and that's what counts."
