Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs £5.97 @ Amazon [Nintendo DS Games]

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was one of this year's most under-rated cinematic gems, both hilarious and touching by turns, it did not deserve the mediocre reviews it was saddled with. The video game however, really does seem to be just a load of balls.

However if you loved the film and fancy giving the game a spin (I'm guessing you're seriously bored...) or have a young relative for whom this would make a great stocking filler then you may be pleased to hear that Amazon are selling it for just £5.97, saving you nearly £4 (next best price is £9.99 from Play).

Players take on the role of leading man Flint Lockwood, a young scientist desperate for recognition, who designs a machine that can create any food the user so desires. A series of unusual events leads to the globe (or at least Flint's town of Swallow Falls) being overrun with giant foodstuffs and it is up to you/Flint to save the day!

Now I love food as much as the next person, in fact I have a bit of a strange penchant for stories/games/films featuring magical food, but sadly this game fails to offer any of the excitement or fun one would expect from a tale of raining dinners.Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs £5.97 @ Amazon [Nintendo DS Games] The graphics are fairly perfunctory but probably bright and cheery enough to appeal to a child and the gameplay is ok but repetitive and quick to bore. All in all, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is just standard movie tie-in fare. By no means the worst but certainly not a surprise gem like the recent G-Force.
