    An utterly useless port of a great game, EWJ for the GBA is a trashy, lazily-crafted game that looks disastrous compared to its original incarnation. The framerate is reduced to about 1/5 of its speed, making Jim look like a rejected Mortal Kombat fighter, and the levels are extremely tedious, sometimes even impossible to beat. Buy the original classic for the SNES. You'll be much happier.

  1. For fans of the original Earthworm Jim games, this is a real treat that provides an exercise in nostalgia while still being legitimately fun.
  2. Gamers looking for an off-the-wall platform adventure, and those that have the patience to put up with the lack of a save feature might find EWJ a good buy.

    It's difficult. Which isn't a problem in and of itself, it was difficult before, only now it's also unforgiving.
