  1. The humor and writing is really top-notch SpongeBob SquarePants! It's just like the show that we all love to watch! SpongeBob SquarePants! The gameplay is simple but never gets dull...
  2. Like a sponge that absorbs hours of your time, SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom will keep young gamers very occupied. By kids' standards I'm "old," but that didn't stop me from loving this game.
  3. It’s surprising how well crafted the game is, especially taking into account the subject matter.
  4. What really makes this one tick, though, is a level of creativity imbedded into each scenario that makes it impossible to put down, regardless of your maturity or lack thereof. [Nov 2003, p.80]

    This game offers a lot of variety and each area feels like a fresh and distinct entity rather than just a palette swap.
  6. It's huge and solidly designed, it controls well, and the levels, while admittedly linear, are filled with hidden items, secrets, and some fun activities. [Jan 2004, p.29]
  7. If you've had neurosurgery more than twice, you may (and I stress the word) find a thimble's worth of entertainment here. If not, you'll get more kicks out of a sponge...just an ordinary pantless sponge. [Nov 2003, p.153]

Spongebob's humor is maintained though all the game, gameplay is smooth, challenging and very long (I have had it since 2004 and haven't finished it) Expand

    Spongebob has many great games, but this may be the best one. With solid platforming and variety, and it is somewhat long of a game. Its great.
