  • Summary: After being kidneapped from his beautiful home, Kao must find his way back to Australia. Armed with comedy-sized boxing gloves, Kao hops, skips, and triple jumps his way across magnificently colored landscapes. Legs the size of a professional bodybuilders aren't the only means of locomotion for this furry bundle of fury. Use hang gliders, motorboats, snowboards, and even a space scooter. Collapse

  1. Definitely get this game if you are platform gamer and if you are under 12.
  2. Because this game is targeted at the kiddies, and because sometimes a little (or in this case, a whole lot of) simple, addictive gameplay is just what the kiddies need, Kao Kangaroo succeeds marvelously on this level. Just don't expect much more.
  3. Dabblers should find KAO's charming antics and approachable gameplay well suited to a weekend or two of lighthearted entertainment.
  4. 62
    As delightful as our cartoony kangaroo is, Kao The Kangaroo just wasn't exciting enough for me mainly because I've played this type of game so many times already.
  5. Nine out of ten experts agree, this kangaroo should be hopping his way into bargain bin obscurity, posthaste.
  6. It's too short and unchallenging for the current asking price of $40 but, with time, it (as well as most of the DC line-up) will go down in price (and becomes an enticing secondary purchase).
  7. The game is obscenely generic, wildly frustrating and simply not worth the time. Kids will throw tantrums and adults will pull out their hair. I fear Kao is headed straight for the video game character wasteland, populated by such notables as "Aero the Acrobat," "Bubsy" and "Michael Jackson."
