  • Summary: The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy videogame pits 15 characters from the popular television show against each other in a fighting/adventure game filled with mayhem and chaos. Whether players use Billy's gas attack or Mandy's deadly smile, all of the characters will feature individual abilities based on their personalities. Players will be able to smash objects, destroy environments and battle in 20 fully interactive environments from the show. In battle mode, up to four players can use a multitude of weapons in destructible arenas like the "Desert of Doom" and the "Underworld" to battle it out and be the last one standing. Players also have the option to play on their own or with a friend in mission mode, a series of 45 missions where players can unlock new weapons and characters like Hoss Delgado and Fred Fredburger.

  1. It's nice to see that The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy is so comfortable being a videogame when so many games based on cartoon shows turn out to be horrible examples of projects that can’t survive crossing mediums.
  2. 75
    Midway has gone above and beyond the call of duty and delivered a surprisingly fun little brawler that really benefits from the source material.
  3. Even with that lack of depth there is a lot of amusement here, as the characters are bright and vibrant and the game is actually rather funny as it unfolds.
  4. A pretty weak beat-em-up. A lack of any intelligence devolves into some simple button mashing most of the time, and you’ll often be wondering what’s happened to your character in the chaos. Even so, the interesting battle modes and arenas are enjoyable enough to warrant play.
  5. In the end, this title really isn’t half bad. If only beating Billy senseless during the end credits wasn’t the most fun we had with the game.
  6. This game is surprisingly enjoyable for a few hours, but after that it goes from good, mindless fun to mind-numbingly repetitive.
  7. Definitely a good time for the elementary-school set. [Jan. 2007, p.89]

    Wonderful, great, addictive, funny, well polished and so on. Many words whose I can describe this game. I like it so much. A great work, nice characters, polished and various worlds. I hate the ones who also hate Cartoon Network games and underrate them! Expand
