  • Summary: [WiiWare] Frogger Returns takes the heart-pounding challenge of arcade Frogger and moves it into the next dimension. Classic top-down 2-D game play is updated with colorful 3-D graphics, a new perspective, new levels, new enemies and game-changing power-ups. A local multiplayer mode lets you race a friend.

  1. Frogger Returns makes a welcome addition to the WiiWare line-up. It features good old-fashioned gameplay which remains faithful to its arcade ancestor whilst providing interesting new levels that enhance the experience: a hallmark of good retro game design. It's let down by limited options and lackluster multiplayer modes, but if you're a fan of classic arcade games it's definitely worth your 500 points.
  2. Very average indeed. [Apr 2010, p.93]

    Frogger Returns is ugly, it forces the player to use a batcrap crazy control scheme, a bad camera angle results in cheap deaths, and it can't go online.
  4. Frogger Returns doesn't fulfill expectations. And it is not that the formula has aged badly, because the original is as fun as ever.
  5. I honestly can’t come up with anything truly positive to say about this game. Stay away from it. You’ll just end up being frustrated with the controls and the camera and walk away disappointed like I did. If you are looking for a classic reboot done right, try "Contra Rebirth" or "Mega Man 9" instead.
