  1. It falls squarely in the middle of fun and boring as it's both. The repetitive nature of the game just takes out any fun that might have occurred in the beginning.
  2. The game is repetitive, no doubt, but there are enough challenges to make it worth a sitting or two.
  3. The graphics are cartoony but they could be improved, the voices and music are really good but the SFX are not quite on par, and the gameplay is repetitive and tedious.
  4. 50
    BLSC's camera movement is an immediate hurl-inducing experience: the camera swoops around like a roller coaster gone mad.
  5. Erratic control and graphical limitations on top of too many niggling requirements make this game experience less than enjoyable.
  6. Boasting nothing resembling extraordinary gameplay, it serves, rather, as a vehicle for the license.
  7. With sloppy controls, an uncomfortable camera, poor voices, and awful music, BLSC has little to get excited about, even if you're a hard-core "Toy Story" fan.

    As this was my very first game ever, I feel like it's being treated unfairly. I loved it as a kid and played it for years after I got it. The story follows the Buzz Lightyear animated series, which was actually pretty good. Buzz himself is voiced by the same person who plays Joe on Family Guy (I recognized it later), and the cast of characters is unique and charming. The game consists of 15 stages that mix action-platforming and racing. Essentially, all levels play out in the same way. Buzz confronts the bad guy at the start of the level and they proceed to run through the level to their get-away spot, which you have to beat them to in order to face them in the final battle. Overall, I felt that the levels were well-designed and the gameplay was solid. The levels are challenging and kept me on my toes. A few levels (such as the ice world) took a while to beat because there were deep chasms through which you could fall to your death. In addition to the regular boss-race mode, there are time trials and XR recovery missions. XR is Buzz's robot partner who always manages to get himself blown up on every mission he goes on. You're tasked with tracking down all his parts in the level to put him back together. Lastly, I found the soundtrack to be very entertaining and catchy. I can still here the boss battle them in the back of my head to this day. Overall, I loved this game as a kid and I'd gladly pick it up again on nostalgia alone. I doubt my opinion of it would change very much if I played it now, because I remember it so fondly from back then. When I had this game, I may not have been able to write a well-constructed review (or anything for that matter), but I had a heck of a good time with it. Expand
