  1. All told, Creature from the Krusty Krab is the most ambitious and most successful SpongeBob game to date. [Dec. 2006, p.112]
  2. As it stands, SpongeBob SquarePants: Creature from the Krusty Krab won't hold the attention of older games for very long. Younger gamers will probably be entertained by the loopy level designs and crazy objectives.
  3. Bad writing, average graphics, poor sound and gameplay with seemingly no direction and little resemblance to the Bikini Bottom world combine to bog down a really good storyline concept and what could have been a good platform adventure game, but instead feels like sections of platform adventure jumbled with poor flying and racing.
  4. I'll give em this: It's never boring, always whacked out of its mind, and the control throughout delivers...Nunchuk or not. So in closing, may the Sponge be with you. [Dec. 2006, p.62]
  5. While this isn't a bad game, it isn't a good game, either. The designers went to some effort to make things different, but the end effect doesn't work.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. What a fun game to play! First, I managed to make SpongeBob punch somebody larger than him, and then race against the ugliest version of our favorite starfish. Then, Patrick became a superhero, probably my favorite part. The second level is made in the style of a comic book, and you must fight The Dreaded Patrick (a tip of the hat to Homer Simpson, in no way at all, except for how Homer loathes himself). Plankton also gets to run away from a giant Krabby Patty. Then, you play the game inside an Alaskan Bullworm, from the episode "SpongeBob, Sandy, and the Worm". then, you race through space on a rocket with Starfishman. Then, you zap buildings as monster Plankton (the predecessor of Giga Bowser). There are some boring parts of the last 3 levels (7-9), but the game is saved by the final racing level, along with the cool endings. Anyway, this is probably the best SpongeBob video game ever.
