  1. Although it doesn’t feel as inventive as the DS installment, the core gameplay and story, spruced up presentation, multiplayer addition and subtle control improvements all mesh together as a portable romp well worth taking a gander at, especially if you’re in search of a good platform action game for your PSP.

    The platforming and the special powers and the occasional boss fight all help to liven up the world, but the large majority of it is tedious and highly repetitive.
  3. It's a decent game, even if you'll have a sense of déjà vu the entire time. For hardcore SpongeBob fans only.
  4. Buy if you must, Sponge fans.. other's wait for another version.
  5. This game would be most ideal for children so young that they don't play games for their quality but for their content.
  6. There's something intrinsically tiring about having to help SpongeBob set his alarm and turn in his homework, and the platforming and puzzle solving required to fulfill these objectives isn't that noteworthy or exciting itself. With both tedious missions and tedious gameplay, it's a rather boring game.

    Surprised at what a fun game this is. Needed more of the bosses, but the game plays like the cartoon and looks just like it. Bought this for my daughter, but played it myself. Pleasantly surprised, on the PSP. Expand

    This is an overall very fun experience, even for non-Spongebob fans. The adventure is fun, the story captures the feeling of the show, and the platforming with a few puzzles is very inventive Expand

    i like spongebob even though im a teen, so thats ALL that was appealing about this game. it's like mario when u jump on top of bubbles, but the platforming, and every other thing u could do in the game was just not fun at all! Expand
