    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.

    Completely bad. Nothing good about it. Bad controls, graphics, camera angles, etc.

    The game was so terrible, it isn't even worth my time to write this. In fact, I WAS going to give this game a ten just to make Jared N. The game was so terrible, it isn't even worth my time to write this. In fact, I WAS going to give this game a ten just to make Jared N. mad along with the rest of the reviewers, and just to be funny. But seriously, never come within a 2-mile radius of this game or you might get sucked into a whirlpool of terrible graphics, horrendous gameplay, and generally bad Movie-based-gameocity. Expand

    Pacman has more sophisticated game-play. The original Playstation had better graphics. Mario Brothers has more convincing animation. The Pacman has more sophisticated game-play. The original Playstation had better graphics. Mario Brothers has more convincing animation. The movie "A Bugs Life" has less bugs. The average Daft Punk video contains less repetition (audio and visual). The only reason you might wish to buy this for someone else is if you intend to demonstrate your utter contempt for them. If this was a meal in a restaurant, you would not only refuse to pay for it, you would be compelled to storm into the kitchen and bludgeon the chef unconscious with your bare hands. If you make the mistake of buying this for your child, you can only blame yourself when the child grows up resenting you, claims to have come from a broken home, and sticks you in a nursing home the first time you complain about a bad hip. The price of this game is about as much as it would cost you to post a box full of offal and dog droppings to the creators, which would be a far better use for your hard-earned money. AVOID! Expand
