  1. 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.

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

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