  1. Great for kids and for the beginning gamer. Veterans will blow through it quickly.
  2. Fairly fun, especially when you can pass the levels. The game gets a bit frustrating when you know for certain that you should have landed the jump, and the controls and 3D perception could have used some fine-tuning.
  3. Retains the gameplay of the original that makes it enjoyable, but it just seems to be getting a little past it’s time for not only the gameplay, but the graphics as well.
  4. Features some very good arcade-style gameplay that will somewhat take you back to the start of the videogame era, the days when you could play a arcade game for .25 cent, the days when you thought games like "Pac-Man" and "Pong" kicked ass.
  5. The cutscenes are better off skipped and there's nothing mind-blowing at work here, but the levels are clever, the bosses nicely creative and the mix of thinking and skill-based gameplay fun. [Dec 2003, p.85]
  6. The game's heavy emphasis on a disjointed and needless plot and some generally unimpressive production values are Frogger's Adventures main drawbacks, though they don't prevent the game from being enjoyable overall.
  7. At the end of the day you will come for the single-player game and stay for the multiplayer modes. If the multiplayer modes don’t interest you then you will want to rent or simply skip this title.
  8. There isn’t anything found in this edition of Frogger that would justify a purchase.
  9. 55
    A rather bland experience. It's not bad, but it's not good either. Some new types of puzzles, like pulling platforms closer to you, adds some more puzzle variation to Frogger, but the puzzles aren't that challenging.
  10. An average adventure game that owes little to the original Frogger license.
  11. 40
    Although it's good that the game tries to stay true to its '80s roots, the unnecessarily complicated controls, distracting plot, and bland visuals keep it from being much fun.
  12. Once you get past the counterintuitive controls, Rescue serves as a completely serviceable hop-a-thon for tadpole gamers. [Jan 2004, p.133]
