  1. Despite some fun online co-op and versus play, Frogger just isn't as good as you remember it. [Issue #16, p.77]
  2. About as fun as chiseling "HATE" into your eyes with a scalpel. [Issue 10, p.106]

    It is what it is and Frogger is a classic. That doesn't change the fact that it's definitely showing its age, though. It'sIt is what it is and Frogger is a classic. That doesn't change the fact that it's definitely showing its age, though. It's still fun in short bursts, but doesn't have much staying power. Normally I'll play a few rounds of it every other week, so I guess I've gotten my $5 worth, but it's far from a must have. Full Review »

    Buggy, clumsy, and frustrating. You can even jump backwards first, cover up your time, and then get around to playing. Some achievements also Buggy, clumsy, and frustrating. You can even jump backwards first, cover up your time, and then get around to playing. Some achievements also are not triggered properly. Play the demo. After that, replay the demo. Save the $5 on this one. Full Review »

    Poorly implemented 'pocket money' version of the original with no apparent effort to update it for 2006. Unacceptable that a game Poorly implemented 'pocket money' version of the original with no apparent effort to update it for 2006. Unacceptable that a game that involves moving up/down/left/right has online lag and unresponsive D-Pad controls. Advertised feature of offline co-op/mp doesn't seem to actually be in the game (may be wrong, but I've not found it) and glitches with unlocking achievements. Screen has to be manually stretched across widescreen tv's otherwise you can't see it properly, then resized again to make the mp fit onto the screen. 3/10 score purely because of Frogger's 'classic' status and the price. If I was MS, wouldn't want too many people seeing this as an example of what the Arcade has to offer. If it was offered as part of a retro bundle may have got away with it but as the first arcade title for a couple of months not very impressed - the only noticeable hi-def graphics I've seen in this game are the gamerpic. It's cheap and it's Frogger, but personally I'd prefer to give my 400pts to charity. Full Review »
