  1. This is one of the few games released for the holiday buzz that seems to measure up to being a game, not an advertisement.

    An example of how to do and ensemble cast game, right. Each character has different moves and is helpful to the team. Most importantly, they're all fun to play as, despite the sometimes wonky controls for a couple.
  3. Volcano Island is nothing spectacular, but at the same time, it's a solid game that is fun for more than just kids to play, just don't expect it to last very long.
  4. This is a unique platformer for that fact that each level does require strategy depending on the powers of your character.
  5. It's a fun experience that I played for a few hours and will probably never touch again.
  6. Nicktoons Battle for Volcano Island presents some interesting concepts, but there isn't enough to any of them for the game to pan out. Hit-or-miss puzzles do, on rare occasions, hit a homerun. In most cases, however, they strike out.

    Even with only four playable characters, the game is very fun, its puzzle genre is good. I loved the game, I just wish you can change the controls like in the Sonic Advance series, but oh well. I recommend this game more than the PS2 and DS versions. Full Review »
