  1. I can't tell you how exciting it is to see a well-crafted console game for children that is designed to be easy to play, but at the same time offers enough variety, levels and challenges to never be boring.
  2. I said it before and I’ll say it again, this is the best Nickelodeon game ever.

    Like Bob himself, this game holds its water and is, in fact, remarkably fun. [Jan 2004, p.86]

    I'm constantly amazed by the how much THQ and Heavy Iron got right -- this truly is like playing through an episode.

    Does an even better job at capturing the cartoon's craziness. [Feb 2004, p.151]

    Although it's probably not quite interesting enough for non-SpongeHeads (if SpongeBob fans aren't called that, they should be), it's sure to please devoted viewers of the show.
  7. All the stages are based around areas in the cartoon like Bikini Bottom and Jellyfish Fields, but it's all so low-res and blurry that everything looks plain bad.

The platforming is very good for the Playstation 2 and the Gamecube. The graphics are actually really good! The sound effects aren't annoying. Yes they aren't and it's spongebob! There is so much gameplay. If you have this game you are very lucky. This game is 100% worth and one of my favorite games of all time. Play it now! Expand

The gameplay is fun, graphics are cheesy in a lovable way, and storyline is very spongebob-esque. I don't think I'll find a GameCube (besides windwaker and veiwtiful joe) with cel-shading art style level design as good as the jelly fish fields level. Unfortunately that's where the pretty levels and fun gameplay cease. The levels after jellyfish fields are bland and boring and barely kept my interest. But I will admit that I have played jellyfish fields at least 10 times and then just stopped. Overall a good game and a wonderful blend of spongebob and videogames. It's just a shame everything beyond the first level felt so uninspired. Expand

Don't turn your back on this game just because it's a Spongebob game, for this is actually (at least IMO) a quality platformer, even for a game based off a TV show! This film feels a lot like what a Spongebob game should be, for it was very close to it's source material and it had a lot of references to episodes of the show. The gameplay is fun, the locations are fun and it can be humorous, even if the jokes are probably more funny for kids. There are a few flaws here and there of course, but SS:BFBB is still fun to play and highly enjoyable. Expand
