  • Summary: Jumpers, people with a genetic anomaly that enables them to teleport themselves instantaneously to anywhere on the globe, have existed for centuries. An age-old battle rages between the Jumpers and the Paladins, a clandestine organization set on eliminating them from the planet.

    This is the epitomy of a movie tie-in hack job. Low production values, monotonous gameplay, and lackluster visuals make this a story you can jump past.
  2. A boring, unrefined, too-short brawler that you'll forget the second you eject the disc. We've already gone blank; what were we talking about?
  3. Here lays just another sad tale of movie-turned-game that is underdeveloped and bad beyond belief. It has truly gotten to the point where I can not tell if the movie industry is just trying to play a cruel trick on us gamers by giving the go ahead on these projects.
  4. Jumper fails on all fronts; animation, sound, level design, control, combat, storytelling, balancing, item management...all of it. It can also be completed in approximately two hours. [Apr 2008, p.88]

    Jumper: Griffin's Story is not only one of the worst movie to game adaptations we've ever played, it's quite simply one of the worst games ever.
