  1. If you’ve enjoyed the previous Nicktoon games, Battle for Volcano Island will be another game you have to add to your library.
  2. A good pick for kids that love Nickelodeon; of course, expect to buy another game shortly after gifting due to the unimpressive length. At least it looks good and is a bit of fun.
  3. Though the basic elements are recycled long after they get tired, the core gameplay is solid enough that the game doesn't feel like a chore. Sure, it's simple, but this IS a kids' game, and great fan service at that.
  4. It's a shame that it settles for merely good enough when it could have been great. [July 2007, p.88]
  5. Most gamers, however, will be turned off by its overly easy objectives, most of which involve the same few actions. Camera confusion ensures disappointment by all but the most forgiving players.
  6. A child safe damp squib of a game that has none of the edge of the cartoon. [Aug 2007, p.73]

    A generic platformer to say the least. It is obvious the game’s focus is on the franchises rather than the core gameplay mechanics. One for the diehard fanatics only.
