I haven’t seen it yet, but by all accounts, Toy Story 3 is excellent, and after seeing it in the theater, the boys have been watching the original movie at home on DVD. But any gamer knows that video games based on established franchises are often the worst games of all (though Lego Star Warswas excellent, but I’ve played and watched many bad Star Wars video games through the years). So it’s great to see a good review of Toy Story 3: The Video Game.
