  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.
  3. Like Bob himself, this game holds its water and is, in fact, remarkably fun. [Jan 2004, p.86]
  4. A well-made title with a load of personality. This is a no-brainer buy for SpongeBob fans, but platform enthusiasts can’t go wrong here either.
  5. What really makes this one tick, though, is a level of creativity imbedded into each scenario that makes it impossible to put down, regardless of your maturity or lack thereof. [Nov 2003, p.80]

    I'm constantly amazed by the how much THQ and Heavy Iron got right -- this truly is like playing through an episode.
  7. 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.
  9. 50
    It's all not as bad as it could have been, but nothing you can't get from dozens of other games.
  10. 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.
