  1. Nothing about it is spectacular but it’s such a fun little platformer that I enjoyed it anyway.
  2. What limited time you do have with Garfield is actually surprisingly entertaining, and though it doesn’t really use the source material very well, this is still a good 2D platformer that platforming fans should check out, whether they like Garfield or not.

    Garfield's Nightmare isn't for everyone, but the intended audience, those under the age of ten, will find themselves enjoying the adventures of our tubby orange hero.

    A safe and predictable platformer that is surprisingly well done.

    This is 3D done beautifully, and there’s solid gameplay here to back it up. Any kid or longtime Garfield fan will eat this game up like a plate of hot spaghetti.
  6. Just as Garfield is not a very ambitious cat, the game does not try to reach far. But what it does do, it does well. [Oct 2007, p.89]
  7. Garfield passes muster, but only thanks to some really great levels and graphics, otherwise it's another example of should have been.
  8. Overall, Garfield's Nightmare is a standard romp through a very average platformer and will do little to hold your amusement for the entire playthrough.
  9. 40
    The graphics are pretty, though everything else feels incredibly ordinary, with the intentions solely being focused on tacking Garfield’s name onto a lifeless affair. The game is far too simple and offers very little to anyone who buys it – there are much better alternatives available.

    This is an actual good Ds game. Not many out there you know.
