    A surprisingly well-made party game that successfully captures the style and humor of the popular Nickelodeon franchise.

    A decent kids' game, but only if you've got at least two people playing. [Jan 2006, p.99]

    Parents can rest assured with this game. As for the rest of us, unless you're a huge Spongebob fan or have a lot of beer, there are better games out there.
  4. A nice start for SpongeBob’s first foray into the party genre. He fits perfectly in this genre and I hope his second outing only improves on what was established here.

    Of course, the odd SpongeBob appearance and the odd wisecrack from Mr. Krabs makes up for the otherwise abysmal tasting Krabby Patty of a game, but unless you really have an itch for a Sponge game, this probably should be avoided.

    Hardly deep, but an entertaining set of party games for your younger brother or sister that you may just get a kick from too. [Jan 2006, p.109]
  7. All in all, it's hard to see how even the most ardent SpongeBob fan could get a lot out of this game, even with three friends and four controllers on hand. There's just not a big enough selection of games, fundamentally, and too many niggles.
  8. The problem with Story Mode is that additional players cannot join or exit a game in progress.

    Spongebob has platforming? Racing? A weird game? A game based off a movie? What next? A party game? Well is it good? It is! Minigames areSpongebob has platforming? Racing? A weird game? A game based off a movie? What next? A party game? Well is it good? It is! Minigames are really creative and fun. Has a way better storyline than Mario Party. Also it is hilarious as well.This game is often hated for some reason and I have no idea. Full Review »

This is THE best Nickelodeon licensed game of all time.

    I love everything about the game. The graphics, music, sound and gameplay is superb. I love the story in which you take part in a competition to become the super-villain for the new Mermaidman and BarnacleBoy movie. There are multiple locations from the show you play three mini games in in order to progress onto the next. There are a total of 64 mini games in which you play and can unlock for single player and multiplayer. I like when you complete story mode on easy, normal and hard, you unlock a bonus mini game. You can play as the beloved characters from the show. It gets more fun when you play 4 player. There are many game modes that will keep you and your friends entertained.

    There are many unlockables to earn such as pictures and trophies but there are more hidden unlockables to earn if you have multiple save files of other Nickelodeon games for more replayability.

    Overall its a childhood classic.

    The only minor complaints I have with the game are the annoying voice acting and slightly repetitive gameplay.

    Get it.

    Lights Camera Pants has some entertaining mini-games, which do offer an enjoyable multiplayer experience. However, the problem is that, unlikeLights Camera Pants has some entertaining mini-games, which do offer an enjoyable multiplayer experience. However, the problem is that, unlike a game like Mario Party, the mini-games here offer little replayability, as there are very little elements to the games that allow for more than a few playthroughs to feel rewarding. Also, mainly for this reason, the single-player mode also feels very shallow, and after a few tries, not challenging in the least. It is unfortunate, because it is a decent game, but it could have been so much better. Full Review »
