    If you love video games and love having fun, then you need to do yourself a favor and download Joe Danger. I guarantee you this, it will be high on top of my game of the year list come December.
  2. Joe Danger arrives on the gaming landscape as a refreshing experience despite its strong resemblances with other titles in the genre. It's cartoony visuals, bright colors and intuitive gameplay makes it a worth-checking out title.
  3. It has a ridiculously high replay ability factor, it's a game that is dressed in its proverbial Sunday best with regards to both aesthetic and technical ability, and it makes the age-old videogame designer headache of creating an experience that is "easy to pick up, hard to put down" look easy.
  4. It's good, really good. Hello Games might only be four strong but their first game has production values and a sense of purpose many retail PS3 games can only dream of. It's a focused, concentrated game, apparently clear of feature-creep and publisher intervention, and manages to tick all the right boxes.
  5. Joe Danger is an absolute delight. Fast, colourful, playable and fun it delivers on every front.
  6. Simple without being simplistic, this is a gem. It requires a bit of patience though. [September 2010 p79]
  7. Joe Danger is far from being a bad game, especially considering its tiny price. But one can't help but being frustrated by the lack of variety the gameplay offers. Its the perfect title for a quick unwinding, but nothing that can compare to a Mario Kart marathon with friends, nor the puzzling stunts of a Trials HD.

    This game is very good. I would give it a 9.5 but since you can't go in between numbers, I gave it a 10 because it's closer to that than a nine. I bought this game for 15 bucks when it first came out and fell in love with it. I ended up finishing it to 97%. It was very difficult and isn't a game to under estimate. You get a charming, colorful and delightful game that is full of insane stunts and great obstacles. Anyway, I decided to check it out again and noticed that my save data got deleted. Guess I'm gonna have to do it all over again. But in no way is that a bad thing. Expand

    Excellent game that keeps on giving and giving as you play.
    Initially I was disappointed with the purchase but 3-4 hours in and the game kept
    introducing new, more exciting and more addictive levels and I was blown away.
    Trying to get all medals will leave you locked to your TV for hours and they are very fun and balanced to try and get so even if they are difficult, you never feel annoyed. I am disappointed created level sharing can only be done between friends instead of like LBP where you can just download any level from the world but I guess I was expecting too much. Definitely one of the many PSN gems. Highly recommended.

    I feel this game was a let-down. Single player is ok, I played it for 5-6 hours during a weekend but haven't looked at it since. Multi-player is nowhere near as good as it could have been, no on-line gaming and only two players maximum. It's a cross between LBP and Excite Bike, but not as good as you'd think and IMHO I think reviewers has given it too high scores really. My high expectations were not met. Expand

    Production values are high, and the character is all right. I wasn't really impressed to give this a higher rating. I have to compare this to other games and the fact is that I've played ones just like this many times before but where you can edit the terrain and bike's physics. I think a child might enjoy this game...but wouldn't play it all day. Expand
