Summary

Having played the previous Paw Patrol game, I consider myself an expert in all things dog. I remember noting that the last game was a kid’s game that was too basic and plain even for the youngest child, little has changed here. We still get bland basic levels with little in the way of a challenge, there are no enemies and you are playing just to collect biscuits and then driving a vehicle for a few minutes. It’s meant for kids but I honestly believe kids would want more, I see more depth and variety in free mobile games than in Paw Patrol The Movie. It’s a game that is not fun to play and has no life to it, none of the Paw Patrol outside of the human speak so it has no way to engage you. I struggled to get through the game as it was so repetitive, I can see a very young child enjoying it but only for a few levels, then Mum or Dad would have to take over and finish it so you can unlock the slightly better mini-games. Overall it’s basically the same game as before but with a different backdrop.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
