Phineas and Ferb prove TV shows can have a decent game.

User Rating: 8 | Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension WII
The dynamic stepbrothers arrive to the Wii for their first official game, which is amazing considering it's based off a show/movie.

PRESENTATION: 6
The menu is very poor, but the game features plenty P&F characters (Both kids and OWCA agents), weapons and collectibles to justify it.

GRAPHICS: 9
The visuals are colorful, smooth and resemble the show's art style flawlessly. Though the menus could use some original artwork rather than the classic character poses.

SOUND: 9
The background music may not be catchy (or noticeable), but there's a couple of songs from the movie (Brand New Reality, Robot Riot), a game-exclusive song, and perfect voice acting (Specially from Dan Povenmire, playing Doof as good as ever)

GAMEPLAY: 9
The gameplay is the same as Ratchet and Clank, coming from the same development team. You basically get and upgrade gadgets by using them a lot (Kinda like an RPG).

LASTING APPEAL: 6
Once you beat the game (Which sadly takes only 5 hours), there's still some stuff to do. Buy costumes, characters, items, gadget mods, and collect every token from each level. However, it only adds a few hours to the game.
