  1. It's a treat to play something so fresh, and yet so (often frustratingly) familiar. Helmet Chaos strikes the perfect balance between its 20th Century lineage and gameplay for today.
  2. Although not all of the DS’s features were utilized (mainly the touch screen), the challenging gameplay and DS download function more than made up for this.
  3. Frogger isn’t for everyone. While it’s aimed at kids, I find it funny that many kids won’t have the patience that is required to last throughout the levels.

    It's just a very straightforward game design that, even with its rigid quirks, is more fun than it is impressive.
  5. The game is vibrant, mildly entertaining, and offers an array of puzzles to solve while you navigate Frogger through each level. [Nov p.102]
  6. Certainly seems to be directed towards a younger gaming audience with its colorful environments, cute characters and simple controls. The game is pretty childish with a straightforward story mode and a nice selection of multiplayer games.
  7. Helmet Chaos does have a surprisingly quirky sense of humor and some decent voice acting, but it's not enough to recapture the series's long-lost magic. [Oct 2005, p.100]

    As a generic top-down, block-pushing, grid-based platform-puzzler, Helmet Chaos is decent enough. It completely fails to capture the spirit of Frogger, though. Use of every button to obfuscate your traversal of the levels is more annoying than innovative. Expand
