GameZone 6 of 10
In case you couldn't tell from the goofy box art, this game's appeal is not as broad as the novel or the movie. The target market is kids. Young kids (five or six) who have never played through a Sonic or Mario game before. I say this because Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is an action/adventure, minus the action or the adventuring. There's jumping, platform hopping, item collecting, and candy throwing. But there aren't any moments where you get to take on a task and complete it.

IGN 6 of 10
To be fair, certain games based on blockbusters don't totally suck. But these are few and far between. Unfortunately, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory from Global Star Software isn't one of these rare cases where game design triumphs over hectic development time and the need to cash in on ticket sales. Not that it's for a lack of trying. Chocolate Factory has a few genuinely cool ideas, not to mention decent graphics and a really good soundtrack. But the entire experience is muddled by sloppy control, a horrendous camera and generally poor design.
