  • Summary: Garfield is back on the GBA with the platformer Garfield and His Nine Lives.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 9
  2. Negative: 2 out of 9
  1. The lively graphics, the varied feel for each level, and the gameplay was enough to hold my interest levels and I would imagine keep other people, particular the younger generation interested in continuing as well.
  2. 75
    An amusing and colorful platformer that simply offers younger gamers a good time. There are no life lessons here, just a good, fun adventure.
  3. Garfield and his Nine Lives offers a simple and entertaining platforming experience that is sure to make the kids happy. There are a couple combat quirks and the graphics have a few hitches, but it doesn't spoil the product. Game Factory has done its job and fashioned a fun little game, no more, no less.
  4. Adults are not going to find much of a challenge in Garfield and His Nine Lives - but kids just might dig it as long as they have some inkling as to who this fat cat really is.
  5. With every clich├ęd platforming scenario and convention ever devised locked down and ready to boot, Garfield and his Nine Lives is both formulaic and as essential a purchase as a chocolate teapot. Quite simply, it's 'paw'.
  6. The levels are short, but an item-collection feature offers some motivation to fight through them multiple times. [Jun 2006, p.86]
  7. This could have actually been an interesting game, but unfortunately it's uninspired and boring licensed drivel that few people are going to enjoy.
