Review:
Make a mountain out of an ant hill? Nope. Great graphics and audio straight out of the wonderfully animated feature-length film are recast into six activities that test arcade skills far more than thinking skills. Youngest tykes might get confused by some games as ant hero Flik and friends journey in search of certain items that reward keep-at-it playing and contribute to building a grasshopper contraption. Older kids will lose interest--too much repetition. Two difficulty levels help some. Activities such as the circus performance and picture puzzles require some problem-solving skills.
