Besides the normal "play along with the movie" style of gaming, Ratatouille
has a lot of side gaming to do. With the regular game, you will assume the movie's main role of Remy. Remy is a rat with a nose for cooking. First things first, there are a few important lessons; so you start out with the tutorial. You will be asked to perform many acts of balancing and jumping from here to there; all standard fare for a platformer. Work your way through the movie scene by scene to follow Remy's adventure and earn points. But it just begins with the standard game. Under the Extras, you will find four sections: Gusteau's shop, Single-Player Mini-Games, Multiplayer Mini-games, and Championship, where you can spend those hard earned points to continue the fun.
In Gusteau's Shop, you will be able to purchase new game modes, levels, bonus art, movie clips, concept art and secrets. It is all about the new game modes, where you can buy Dream Worlds mode, Cooking Stations mode, Slides, Multiplayer Mini-Games and Cooking Stations Championship. What is a game about a cooking rat without, well you know... cooking. Under the movie section, you can purchase previews of upcoming movies. There are tons of levels to be purchased for the new game modes. This all serves to make a big game even bigger with plenty to explore.
You get the idea behind Mini-Games and Multiplayer; square off against your friends in the Championship and Cooking Station Championship to be top chef. Well, not really, but hey -- you can't burn your hand on the controller.
