  1. This is one of the few games released for the holiday buzz that seems to measure up to being a game, not an advertisement.

    A solid platform action game that would be fun without recognizable characters. It's well balanced - easy enough for its core audience to complete while still being reasonably challenging - and the personality of the characters shines through.
  3. Apart from the music, this is a snore fest that’s best to be avoided.

    The game is just really unimpressive, so unless this is a present for an eight-year-old that I constantly watching Nickelodeon, it's probably best to pass.

    Although it’ superior to the PlayStation 2 version, there still lacks an overall polish and depth to make it stand out from the crowd. Best left for die-hard fans only.

It offers little to no unique aspects to the already established platforming gameplay, but doesn't detrimentally take anything away, either. Difficulty varies hugely, regardless of the level. What results is a game that is decent for an obvious cash-grabbing title, but mediocre as a standard video game. Full Review »
