    It's an out of the box idea, a commendable effort for a console that built itself on thinking differently, but ultimately Creature from the Krusty Krab loses the charm and style of the property it's based on.
  2. Overall, it’s about what you expect from SpongeBob on Wii – just barely good enough for a younger kid that loves the show and made a little more interesting by the novel controls.
  3. Aside from being just a tad too repetitive and too long, the platform levels are well-presented and plenty of fun.
  4. Games Master UK
    Decent use of the controller and some nice platforming and puzzles make this OK. [Jan 2007, p.78]
  5. The platforming and token collecting can become repetitive, but overall the game does have a respectable amount of variety, with the inclusion of racing levels and 2D platforming.
  6. Beyond the controls SpongeBob SquarePants: Creature from the Krusty Krab didn’t offer much aside from frustrating driving.
  7. 40
    The game itself is average. The controls don’t do enough to make the game stand out. The extras and bonus features are pointless.
  8. Play Magazine
    I'll give em this: It's never boring, always whacked out of its mind, and the control throughout delivers...Nunchuk or not. So in closing, may the Sponge be with you. [Dec. 2006, p.62]
  9. Nintendo Power
    The game's on the easy side, too, but it's still a solid platform-action title. [jan. 2007, p.114]
  10. If the control issues don't stop you, the tired and overdone level design will.
  11. Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    This is the same licensed platform stuff people have been playing for years. [Jan 2007, p.77]
  12. Nintendo Gamer
    Forgive the painfully slow token collecting and it's a pretty absorbing title. [January 2007, p.44]
  13. 65
    It’s one of the better SpongeBob games to date. But if you’re not a fan, you’ll have a harder time seeing its good qualities.
  14. Its target audience will find a lot to like in the game since the Wiimote helps make the game more interactive and user-friendly, despite some of the limited shortcomings.
  15. By allowing players to employ the motion-sensing controller in a bevy of unique ways, the title has a lot in common with "Wii Sports." Unfortunately many modes feel either underdeveloped, ho-hum, or both--also like "Wii Sports."
  16. Far from fun, it holds you hand through level after level of bland action platform gameplay that makes you wish you could escape from this digital nightmare.

    This is one of the few games I've played that is so fundamentally broken I just can't sit through it. The controls are awful, and the graphicsThis is one of the few games I've played that is so fundamentally broken I just can't sit through it. The controls are awful, and the graphics look like late ps1 games. The motion control is completely unusable, I'm quite frankly ashamed that a game this bad is actually sold. If I were you I'd definitely skip this one. Full Review »
