  • Summary: It's the worst science fair ever as Death Jr. and his pals make their way through a crazy world of science projects gone wrong! Use the touch pad to execute cool scythe combos, switch between DJ and Pandora and play seriously twisted mini-games in a warped and twisted platforming adventure. Play as DJ and Pandora, each with their own unique moves and style of play. Use the DS touch screen to unleash vicious melee attacks and crazy combos. Take control of Pandora's spirit to help guide DJ through tough spots. Collect money to upgrade weapons and attacks as DJ and Pandora make their way through crazy science fair exhibits. Three twisted mini-games playable with friends through local wireless connection. [Konami] Expand

  1. DJ: Science Fair of Doom is good messy 3D. [Apr 2007, p.54]
  2. A decent game marred by glitches and rushes.

    Although Death Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom is by no means a bad game, it lacks an overall polish and a certain oomph to bring it in line with other DS games on the market.
  4. Who would have thought that purging a demonic school of evil by taking control of Death’s son would be so bland, tedious, and frustrating?
  5. While Death, Jr. may have some great artistic elements, it has nothing else to offer that you haven’t seen a billion times before, most of it better.
  6. I don’t think this was the developers’ intention, but Death Junior and the Science Fair of Doom turns out to be a good approximation of the Middle School experience: you’re frustrated, you’re bored, and you’re not really in control of your own body. And while both have some great moments, in the end I’m happy to graduate and move on.
  7. 15
    I cannot forgive the miserable checkpoint system; no matter how long and difficult a particular room is, get hit at the end, and it's back to the very beginning for you.
