  1. The weird and wonderful world of Jim is well suited to the GBA – fast-paced and addictive, with enough challenge to get the little grey cells working – but this disappointing port hasn’t done its slimy hero many favours, and GBA owners will find much better elsewhere.
  2. Game Informer
    With better action games out there for GBA, I suggest leaving this earthworm to the fisherman. [Sept 2002, p.94]

    Superempire put in a password save system for EWJ2, but, sadly, it bites!
  4. Nintendo Power
    A loony bin full of variety, and it's a platformer that's worth going grazy over. [July 2002, p.150]
  5. Even if you love EWJ you will most likely find nothing but disappointment from this game despite a splash of humor.
  6. There are so many bugs in this game that at times it is unplayable, and futile to even attempt to do so.
  7. 40
    Sloppily produced and bug-filled. It's still playable, but it's extremely difficult to overlook all the game's problems...because there's just so many of them.
  8. Play Magazine
    Doesn't anyone, anywhere, give a rat's ass about this franchise anymore? [Aug 2002, p.76]
  9. This port has a host of new problems that render the game virtually unplayable.
  10. 10
    Not only a horrible example of game making, but terribly insulting to just about anybody who’s even familiar with the original versions on the 16 bit systems.

    Really fun game. There's tons of funny bits in this game that keep you playing it forever.
