  • Summary: Now our hero is jazzed up with trick new weapons and tactics, super-cool environments, and a slew of slimy opponents waiting to turn you into rabbit stew. Watch out for surprises as fantastic characters like Zoe Cottontail, Professor Lapin, Spaz and more, unite their powers to help Jazz kick some intergalactic butt. Expand

  1. I can't say enough about Jazz Jackrabbit on the GBA. Jaleco and Game Titan have created a brand new experience while still keeping Jazz's classic gameplay intact.
  2. The gameplay comes up short in terms of variety, so it doesn't have the same kind of staying power as games like "Yoshi's Island" or "Sonic Advance." Still, it's a fun ride while it lasts.
  3. Strangely addictive and fun for the amount of time it takes to play through it.
  4. 65
    A decent distraction and if the "Earthworm Jim" games disappointed you, Jazz probably won't.
  5. 65
    While Jazz is a nice title to watch, it's much less entertaining to actually play.
  6. A game with good but not outstanding graphics and great play control. [Apr 2003, p.136]
  7. A game that will appeal to novice and intermediate gamers. It's loaded with quality but it lacks variety.

    If Jazz Jackrabbit had a tumor, the extracted and dissected lump would look a bit like this game. It basically takes one or two elements of the JJ franchise, grinds them up and spits them back at anybody who grew up with it. Jazz is now a cynical, retired bum who is working for the military now for some reason. All of the charm and lighthearted fun of JJ was buried in a desert somewhere in New Mexico after being burned to ashes. WTF happened, Jazz? Did you get fixed? Honestly, I have no idea who this game is supposed to appeal to, since the only thing this game accomplished was to turn JJ into a generic action platform hero, a ripoff duke nukem in the badly aged body of a childhood hero. The level design is horrendous and cheap and the game just seems to drag on forever. If I could choose between JJ dying with a dignified funeral or surviving to become this new sack of **** character, I'd poison his carrots myself. What an insult. Expand
