    There are some good ideas scattered throughout the game, but there isn't really anything groundbreaking. That may be the game's worst offense.

    It certainly isn't perfect, but younger gamers don't need perfection to be entertained.

    Phineas and Ferb is a game perfect for kids, but not perfect in every other way.

    Across the 2nd Dimension has a lot going for it in terms of production values, a witty script, and varied level design, but it's so fleeting and dumbed down that even children will find its power fantasies pandering.

    It's too easy to be exciting, but Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension is a varied and entertaining game for young players.

    The game is so short the included four unreleased television episodes last nearly as long as the campaign, and the humor is devoid of any Shrek-style double entendres to keep adults entertained. We can't stress enough that this game is perfect for a kid, but that's about all it's perfect for.

    Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension is good fun particularly for fans who have already viewed the film. Some imperfections, but cool level designs and tons of unlocks.

    A seemingly decent game that makes one think of the popular Lego-series. Though the lack of challenge and memorable sequences results in Phineas and Ferb Across the Second Dimension being a rather mediocre game.

    Unfortunately the gameplay feels equally uninspired.

    The only big problem is that our sense of accomplishment is greatly diminished due to a lack of a challenge. It's really just too easy, even for the younger crowd.

    Across the 2nd Dimension can easily be summed up by the mini games – including ski ball and a crane game – that bookend every stage: pleasant, but monotonous.

    In the end, making a purchase decision on Across the 2nd Dimension really depends on what you're looking to get from the game. For a hardcore gamer wanting a button-blistering challenge, this isn't it. If you fall into the casual crowd, however, or are just a fan of "Phineas and Ferb," then there is plenty here to keep you entertained.

    A good arcade-style game for younger players. This game follows the Phineas and Ferb movie just enough to recognize the source material, but anyone looking for any depth or challenge will not find it here. It is clearly geared towards players 10 and under, so keep that in mind when considering this one. Full Review »
