    While it tries to be a laid back platformer, Frogger: Ancient Shadow is a frustrating exercise in awkward controls. It tries to maintain the one tap = one unit of movement mechanics that the original Frogger used. It fails at this greatly, spreading out every little movement over all the gamepad buttons.

    Surprisingly, this latest Frogger adventure is quite solid. [Nov 2005, p.82]

    The control mechanics in the title, initially jarring and overly complicated, aren't likely to mesh well with younger players, and the die-and-retry level design can be tedious.
