  1. If you have to choose, buy the DS version instead. There are better games for the GBA.
  2. Wow, this game was not what I thought it would be. The original license wasn't an interesting or original idea and the game sadly follows suit.
  3. Sluggish would not even begin to describe the controls. Moving Alex around is like driving a ten ton dump truck through wet cement in a blizzard.
  4. It truly is a sad day for the gaming world when a video game reviewer asks his readers to put down the game and read the book instead; you're invariably going to enjoy it more.

    Imagine one of the old, top-down Grand Theft Autos. Now imagine that the main character is replaced with a young teenager and that the police and gang members are replaced with henchmen. Now imagine that any useful weapon is taken away and replaced with a pen and some zit cream. The controls are sluggish and hard to use, the enemy AI is frustrating and very hard; and the gameplay is even worse than that of "barbie's princess & pauper". Any attempt at resembling the book or movie is instantly demolished. Readers, don't buy it. I beg you. It's Atari's "ET" for the Game Boy generation. Full Review »
