  1. The prized glass elevator can't even lift your spirits on this one.

    While it's definitely the safest route for publishers looking to make a buck on the hottest movie of the month, it sure doesn't make for engaging gameplay.
  3. If the game was made harder by having a time requirement or more difficult enemies to negotiate, it could be very solid. [Sept 2005, p.84]
  4. There isn't really any fun to be had past an hour, if you can even get that far without replacing the cartridge slot with something more... fun.
  5. I like games that involve strategy, but this game has none. You do what the game wants you to do with a just a bit of brain power involved, but no strategy.

    Just a terrible game. Nothing more to say, really. Combined single stragety and annoying graphics to get something of lower class as this.
