    Overall, the controls respond well and the actions are done very well.

    While I have to quibble about the juming controls being clunky; the action is well-paced, the graphics match the cartoon in lively colors and interesting layout, the story is respectable, and the sound is a nice touch. [Feb 2003, p.110]

    The action is solid for the most part and the RPG elements add some depth. It's got its problems, but it's still a world ahead of most games based on a lucrative license.
  4. "It wants to be Castlevania." The double-jump, the wall-jump, double-click dash, the save-monoliths, they’re all here.
  5. The animation is truly a sight to behold. Jack almost moves as he would in the cartoon. Even the sword slashes move like they do sometimes on the shows.
