  1. Although it's based on an idea we've seen before, the use of SpongeBob gives it a much broader appeal and the gameplay here seems slightly more refined.
  2. I definitely enjoyed Drawn to Life: SpongeBob SquarePants, and it's probably the best SpongeBob SquarePants game we've seen in the past few years.

    Although Drawn to Life: SpongeBob Squarepants Edition is a great game for fans of the little yellow sponge, we feel it could alienate older gamers who enjoyed the premier release of the Drawn to Life series.

    Some youngsters might get impatient with stopping the action to draw every little nick-nack in the game (which requires a lot of sheathing and unsheathing the stylus), but those with an artistic flair will have a great time.
  5. A solid buy for Drawn to Life fans, kids who love SpongeBob, and anyone who likes to draw.
  6. Drawn to Life: SpongeBob SquarePants Edition is easily the lesser of the two different versions of the game. It ditches some of what makes Drawn to Life so enjoyable, in favor of pandering to the kiddy crowd. The move is successful – any young SpongeBob fan is going to love this title – yet most gamers should do themselves a favor and just go with the original.

    The game's run-and-bop antics unfold in the charming SpongeBob universe, but the portrayal of the characters falls flat and feels like a joke that never reaches the punch line.

    The use of the Spongebob universe with Drawn to Life elements is well executed, even if it has been done before.

You draw your own character and help Spongebob and his friends stop an evil drawn version of Spongebob from taking over Bikini Bottom. Expand

    This is the Worst Nintendo DS game I ever played,
    Back then I liked this game but tonight when I played the game.
    I have a few problems with it.
    1.A cliche executed story,
    It's a rehash of Frankendoodle
    2.Very Low-brow color scheme
    I can see what THQ can do with their color scheme but they always use the same kind of color scheme in all of their games!
    3.The characters,
    All of them are generic.
    4.The creativity,
    It's the same creativity!
    It's just my opinion, If you like this game
    I'll respect yours.
