Gamefaqs explains of the PC version:[4]

Disney's Brother Bear immerses you in a fully interactive version of Kenai's world, complete with the lush environments based on the animated film. Join Kenai and Koda as they make their way through various areas in the forest. Not only can you play Kenai and Koda as bears, but you can also transform into a wolf, a crow, and an eagle. You'll also interact with seven different characters from the film.

IGN explains of the GBA version:[3]

The game features elements such as spectacular weather effects and cut-scenes from the film which will bring alive the world of Brother Bear. [It has] four worlds, 16 levels and unlockable bonus games.

Differences Between the Movie

  • Kenai mentions the mountain where the lights touch the earth before he and Koda make a deal, rather than keeping it a secret until Koda talks about the Salmon Run before mentioning the mountain

Critical reception

PC version

AceGamez rated the game 6 out of 10, GameZone rated it 7 out of 10, PC Format UK rated it 27 out of 100, and PC Gamer UK rated it 62 out of 100.[5] Childrenssoftware.com gave the game 4.5/5, writing "The humor and adventure make the transition from large to small screen nicely. Although the game is marketed to kids ages 6 and older, the gameplay can be challenging. Our nine to fourteen year old testers liked the game".[1] jkdmedia of Gamezone said "This game appears to be a fun, action packed game, with lots of cool mini-games that can be played independently. I say "appear", because frankly, due to many technical issues in running the game, we didn't get all the way through the game. There is a lot of game here, though, with plenty of easy exploration and item collecting."[6] SuperKids gave the game a 3.0 for Educational Value, 4.0 for Kid Appeal, and 5.0 for Ease of Use. It said "While Brother Bear is a fun-packed game that reinforces the importance of friendship and listening, it does not adress the classic 3 R'", and noted "Even if kids have not seen Disney's Brother Bear movie, they will enjoy this fun adventure."[7]

GBA version

GameZone rated the game 8 out of 10, Nintendo Power rated it 3.3 out of 5, and Nintendojo rated it 6.6 out of 10.[8]
