Disney's next big hit will pack a real punch in cinemas, thanks largely to the sheer size of the lead character - 643lb Ralph.
This arcade bad guy is looking for a change of lifestyle, and this game acts as a story extension to the film itself, seeking to inspire a whole new generation of young gamers as a classic, arcade-style side-scroller featuring this misunderstood villain.
With his pal, perpetual good-guy Fix-It Felix, you'll enjoy an environment-hopping arcade action journey, taking in worlds familiar to the film such as Sugar Rush and Hero's Duty, all of which are amusing parodies of the real-life game genres.
Although a little generic in its gameplay premise, the loveable characters and gaming in-jokes do more than enough to make Wreck-It Ralph a worthwhile addition to your DS collection, and a great warm-up to next week's big screen release.
SCORE: 8 / 10
