  • Summary: Summer is just around the corner, and the kids from Ocean Shores look forward to the Annual Ocean Shores Surf Contest. But as Otto, Reggie, Twister, and Sam finally reach the beach, they make a startling discovery--most of the sand is missing, and the surf contest has been postponed. Now it's up to you to guide the kids through Ocean Shores, The Lakes, The Robot Factory, and Mondo Mountain in the effort to discover who stole the sand. In each area, you'll battle robot minions, use the new wave runner and zip-line glide, and play extreme sports, such as skateboarding and inline skating. Expand

  1. Younger gamers out there will definitely have a good time and won’t find themselves getting stuck or frustrated too often. Unfortunately, the older and more experienced younger gamer out there may find this title to be somewhat dull overall.

    Obviously, your enjoyment of the story line and setting are largely dependent on your familiarity with the show, but thankfully the gameplay is solid enough to provide enjoyment for Rocket Power neophytes as well.
  3. Play control is intuitive, and the graphics fit the style of the show. [Nov 2002, p.224]

    Indeed because it's a kid's game some of the control setups and challenges are baffling as they are anything but intuitive and perhaps too hard for many young players.
  5. With some poor attempts to capitalize on the extreme sports genre, Beach Bandits doesn't have a whole lot to offer, even for the younger gamers this game was intended for.
  6. It’s way too hard in places for the youngest gamers, but older players will be annoyed by the trite story and senseless collecting.
