  1. In other words, have you ever watched Jackass on MTV and thought, "I wish I could suffer through that same level of pain and humiliation?" Now you can!
  2. While the game seems to be somewhat technically proficient and the single player campaign is moderately extensive, the repetitive nature of the gameplay and the mind-numbing tasks tend to drag on.
  3. Amusing enough for half an hour or so but ultimately the repetitive stunting, crashing and bone smashing becomes wearisome. [Issue#21, p.88]
  4. If Jackass the Game does anything, it probably shows that the DS is not appropriate for sandbox-style gaming. Or maybe it’s just that games based on the self-infliction of pain don't translate well to the DS. Yeah, that could be it.
  5. Sub-par gameplay with almost unbearable controls. Boring, uninspired content, from missions, to visuals, to the audio work. Not even hardcore fans of the show should spend more money than a rental on this sucker.
  6. 40
    I'll give Sensory Sweep props on taking the Jackass idea into a different direction, but I certainly can't give the team props for the final product. It's a bad game that never meets the potential of the of the original concept.
  7. If Jackass the show were as bland as Jackass the game it would have been cancelled after one episode.
  8. Over-ambitious 3D free-roaming stunt-a-thon which ends up being just hard to control, repetitive and completely unsuited to DS.
  9. Charmless, unfunny and barely playable. [Mar 2008, p.52]
  10. If you're ever wondering how high shit can be stacked, take a look at Jackass the Game, a bleary, depressing, craptastic "adventure" based on a bleary, depressing, craptastic TV show. [Mar 2008, p.64]
