Dec 1, 2013Spongebob 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.
