  1. In the end it's best suited for parents looking for a wholesome product for their kids in this current climate of blood-soaked, hyper-violent, mature-rated games.
  2. The graphics capture the charm of the beloved cartoons series, but the repetitive game structure hampers the overall gaming experience.

    One of the best parts of Rush For Spinach is actually the graphics; the environments all look different from one another but the real standout is the animation for the four characters.
  4. With very little to offer in terms of level diversity, an actual story for the game's Adventure mode and some jerky control issues, the fun just doesn't last for very long.

    And with only a handful of stages to choose from, you'll see everything the game has to offer in an afternoon. [July 2005, p.101]
  6. This is what happens when you get an old, dated license and have absolutely no idea what to do with it.

    If my Mom ever bought me a game like this when I was little, I might have had a tantrum.
  8. A mediocre platformer, and its racing aspects just make things worse.

    Although the game looks pretty good, it's not enough to hide the title's repetitive gameplay mechanics.

    It was a waste of money.
