  • Summary: Left unconscious by a massive cow-induced blow to the head and clad in his indestructible, high-tech super suit, Earthworm Jim continues the battle for truth, justice and well aerated soil. He sure is going to need your to guide him through his 3D fun-house of a brain. But beware, there is an evil lurking, a presence in his mind, a dark unseen force at work - Jim's brain is a dangerous place! Expand

    The impressively goofy/cool audio effects and tunes ring amazingly true to the original’s.
  2. For fans of the original Earthworm Jim games, this is a real treat that provides an exercise in nostalgia while still being legitimately fun.
  3. 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.
  4. The hardest worm ever to grace your garden.
  5. A well-done game, rife with action on landscapes you’ve probably seldom seen.
  6. A walk down memory lane with one of the better platform games of the early days of the Super NES and Genesis.
  7. Cramped levels and shaky control keep this worm from being a superstar.

    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. Collapse
