    So, will I play Earthworm Jim more than a couple of times? Absolutely! The humor and sound effects alone keep me smirking and coming back for more.
  2. If you've never played Earthworm Jim, definitely open your mind and have a sense of humor and try this title out as it contains some of the better gaming memories (and I loved the cartoon!) I have from the 90's. If you're an old Earthworm Jim vet like myself, pick it up again if only to appreciate for it's much sharper visuals and enjoy the nostalgia; hopefully you'll find enough new features and levels to make some new memories with Jim as well.
  3. Earthworm Jim HD is certainly short, but its amazing. This remake of the great Shiny Game shows that with great visuals and co-op add-ons these old classic gems really can stand the test of time.
  4. The personality and surreal art style of Earthworm Jim HD win out over the fidgety controls, but they aren't capable of moving the title into the stratosphere of a must-buy.

    Earthworm Jim is not the superhero we used to adore as a child any more. This remake has almost nothing new to offer and is not innovative enough to bring Earthworm Jim back to his former glory.
  6. As childhood shattering as it may be, the whole package is likely to leave you rather cold. [Issue#61, p.105]
  7. A well-done graphical update that stays true to the classic platformer. Sadly, the original game isn't very good, and the update doesn't change that. Co-op is a nice addition, though.

    Definitely a classic that no old school gamer would miss. Great game and it works good on the both Xbox 360 and PS3.

    As would Earthworm Jim

    As would Earthworm Jim himself say: Groovy!
