Whether players use Billy's gas attack or Mandy's deadly smile, all of the characters will feature individual abilities based on their personalities. Players will be able to smash objects, destroy environments and battle in 20 fully interactive environments from the show. In battle mode, up to four players can use a multitude of weapons in destructible arenas like the "Desert of Doom" and the "Underworld" to battle it out and be the last one standing. Players also have the option to play on their own or with a friend in mission mode, a series of 45 missions where players can unlock new weapons and characters like Hoss Delgado and Fred Fredburger.

  1. It will make for a good experience if you have the friends to play with, but the camera issues and lack of differences between characters don’t give it as much quality or longevity as other party action games.
  2. Definitely the best (if only) fighting game thus far on the Wii, and fans of the television series are bound to enjoy duking it out onscreen with their favorite characters.
  3. It's one of the few truly fun games I've played in a long time, and in an era when all that seems to be produced are stealth agents, pimped up cars and overly complicated sports sims, it's nice that for once we've been given a nice, simple dose of pure entertainment.
  4. This game is surprisingly enjoyable for a few hours, but after that it goes from good, mindless fun to mind-numbingly repetitive.
  5. Billy & Mandy has the beginnings of a decent fighting game, but its unrefined battle system is only suitable as party fodder.
  6. We don't care for the source material and this is too chaotic to actually play. Throws so much silliness around you can't appreciate it. [Feb 2007, p.73]
  7. The GameCube controller works better than the Wii remote even! Unless you are into the show, you can pass on even renting this title.
