    Bad writing, average graphics, poor sound and gameplay with seemingly no direction and little resemblance to the Bikini Bottom world combine to bog down a really good storyline concept and what could have been a good platform adventure game, but instead feels like sections of platform adventure jumbled with poor flying and racing.
  2. A complete disappointment. Far from fun, it holds you hand through level after level of bland action platform gameplay that makes you wish you could escape from this digital nightmare.
  3. For it to be so repetitive, so easy, and so filled with useless interruptions – is a colossal disappointment.
  4. We don’t care if it’s a kids game that parents will buy anyway, that’s no excuse for churning a pile of badness like this. It’s lazy, sloppy and one hell of a bad game.

    Hardly inspiring, but SpongeBob and friends are still starring in a highly capable game that should satisfy younger gamers. [Jan 2007, p.93]
  6. Krusty Krab won’t hold the attention of older games for very long. Younger gamers will probably be entertained by the loopy level designs and crazy objectives.

    I'll give em this: It's never boring, always whacked out of its mind, and the control throughout delivers...Nunchuk or not. So in closing, may the Sponge be with you. [Dec. 2006, p.62]

    What a terrible shame, then, that a game with such weird possibilities really does end up being well...typical. [Jan 2007, p.84]
  9. It's too bad there was never much beyond the most basic of maneuvers, but the fact remains- just about anyone can pick it up and play the whole way through with little difficulty, and still have fun doing it.
  10. There's just no excuse for this. When the previous SpongeBob games have bucked the trend of crappy licensed games as well as they have, to see things fall this far is just that much more depressing.

    Creature from the Krusty Krab is a game with plenty of good ideas, that are just implemented in a mediocore way. You get to play as 3Creature from the Krusty Krab is a game with plenty of good ideas, that are just implemented in a mediocore way. You get to play as 3 different characters, and each character has a few of their own levels. Several of the levels feature many darker textures and settings than you would expect from SpongeBob, which doesn't immediately mean that they are bad, but they feel out of place, as they don't even try to fit the general tone of SpongeBob. A lot of the gameplay is also just bland, and more repetitive than it seems to appear at first. It is unfortunate, as this game is packed with unique ideas and concepts that, if done well, could have made this a great game. Full Review »

    Spongebob games are usually either extreme successes or miserable failures, with very few coming in between. Yet Creature from the Krusty KrabSpongebob games are usually either extreme successes or miserable failures, with very few coming in between. Yet Creature from the Krusty Krab breaks this pattern, a game that is too repetitive and inconsistent to be called good and too full of good ideas and gameplay design to be called bad. The gameplay is decent, everything feels the way it should and all three characters have responsive controls. The game is full of great ideas and levels, but they are executed poorly. One level features Patrick in a comic-book themed dream, which should lend itself to many creative possibilities. Instead, it's just your typical formula of mashing the square button to take down enemies, move to the next room, rinse and repeat. On top of that, the world looks dirty and depressing, with a darker tint that is not pleasant to look at, a sharp contrast to the vibrance of Battle for Bikini Bottom. In the end, Creature from the Krusty Krab is a wasted opportunity. The ideas and gameplay are both there, but it lacks originality or the entertainment value necessary to be a standout game. Being neither a perfect dream nor a nightmare, Creature from Krusty Krab settles for a space in the realm of mediocrity.

    6/10
