  1. Fans of Dr Seuss, the Cat in the Hat, and 2-D side scrolling platform titles will ultimate get the most enjoyment out of this.
  2. Any competent gamer will find themselves completing the game in only a few hours. I could picture a young kid playing the game through in a long weekend or over the course of a week.
  3. If you find yourself tempted just to try out The Cat in the Hat, even just on rental, and you’re legally old enough to be able to watch a movie with either sexual references or sexual swear words, then we’d suggest you spend your cash on something a lot more productive, such as therapy or films with sexual references or swear words. Either way, you’ll end up having just as much fun as any child will with this.

    Your run-of-the-mill platformer, offering no surprise in any way, shape, or form. For most hardcore gamers, that means that this game isn't worth your time.

    Fun for kids, but you're better off playing "Klonoa." [Jan 2004, p.133]

    It may be junk, but at least it's well-made junk.
