(Review of PS1 version)

Disney Interactive is responsible for quality Disney adaptations like The Jungle Book, The Lion King, and more. The Emperor's New Groove has marred that legacy as an uninspired Spyro imitation with large and boring levels.

With over thirty levels, the game is a long exercise in rehashing ideas from other games. Nothing new is in this game, and it doesn't even deliver the Warner Brothers-like comedic attitude of the film. Film clips fill the gaps between levels, where you will find yourself playing as either a llama, rabbit, turtle, or frog.

The graphics don't live up to the Disney Interactive standard (check out the mouths that don't move when someone is talking), so it's fair to conclude the game was rushed to coincide with the film's release. I can't blame Disney for doing that, but the result is a game that no one will miss. Young kids won't much care, though.
