    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.
  2. Over-ambitious 3D free-roaming stunt-a-thon which ends up being just hard to control, repetitive and completely unsuited to DS.
  3. 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!

    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]
  5. If Jackass the show were as bland as Jackass the game it would have been cancelled after one episode.

    Charmless, unfunny and barely playable. [Mar 2008, p.52]
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.

    Amusing enough for half an hour or so but ultimately the repetitive stunting, crashing and bone smashing becomes wearisome. [Issue#21, p.88]
