Based on DreamWorks upcoming animated film, Over the Hedge the game takes players on an all-new adventure beyond the movie as they assume the roles of RJ, Verne, Hammy and Stella and turn a suburban neighborhood loaded with dangerous obstacles and traps into their personal playground. Numerous puzzles and mini-games keep fans busy as they switch between two of the four main characters or engage in two player cooperative play with friends.
RJ is the ultimate party animal. Carpe Diem is his mantra. As a suburban scavenger, RJ has lived his whole life fending for himself. He has the skills, the appeal and the selfishness of a pure con man. But RJ's charmed life may just end if he can't pay back Vincent the bear. Luckily, the unsuspecting animals under Verne's care are the perfect army to do RJ's bidding.
Verne the turtle is well-meaning, selfless and honest. He's also neurotic, insecure, and terrified of change. This little turtle is the leader of a group of small forest animals. Confronted by the sudden appearance of a new housing development, Verne tries to ignore the new neighbors, preferring his life of tradition and routine. But suburbia might just force Verne to experience something he's never had before – fun.
Stella feels that nature dealt her a lousy hand. After all, her talent is that she stinks. It's given her a cynical outlook on the world. Stella tolerates no fools, but she's especially hard on herself.
Hammy's childlike innocence comes with a full dose of childlike hyperactivity. This is one squirrel on the move. He practically vibrates with enthusiastic energy. Hammy's unabashed curiosity leads to an addiction to television.
