    The character is bland, the environments are stale and the fetch missions are tedious. [Dec 2002, p.236]

    Veteran platformers will make it through with little challenge, but that detriment makes it perfect for less experienced, older, or much younger players looking for a cute diversion.
  3. 64
    A decent (yet sadly derivative) game lying underneath the mess.
  4. 68
    The ultra-friendly gameplay and simplistic cartoony rendering certainly won't put the face of this new mascot on any t-shirts anytime soon.
  5. Nintendo Power

    16 levels of wild 3-D action. [Dec 2002, p.220]

    I like this game. It's not as good as Banjo-Kazooie, Super Mario Galaxy, or Crash Bandicoot 3, but I still like it. The graphics are solid andI like this game. It's not as good as Banjo-Kazooie, Super Mario Galaxy, or Crash Bandicoot 3, but I still like it. The graphics are solid and good-looking for a 15 year old GameCube game, The chill music tracks are good (the more intense/energetic tracks often fall flat on their face), and the dialogue, while not perfect, is still pretty good. But the level design is often frustrating and some of the missions are a pain to find and complete (looking at you, "Gantry Glide"). nevertheless, it's still worth picking up if you're a GameCube game collector Full Review »
