  • Summary: Jumpers, people with a genetic anomaly that enables them to teleport themselves instantaneously to anywhere on the globe, have existed for centuries. An age-old battle rages between the Jumpers and the Paladins, a clandestine organization set on eliminating them from the planet. The Jumper game extends the film's storyline, following Griffin, a battle-hardened Jumper determined to avenge the death of his parents at the hands of the Paladins. Griffin's quest to find the killer spans exotic locales around the world. Jump Ability - Use your teleportation skills to "Jump" within hand-to-hand combat range of an enemy to start dishing out devastating blows. Combos - Exciting and intense layered combo fighting system. Finishing Moves - Instantly teleport enemies to exotic perilous locations to finish them. Enemy classes - Deeply ranked hierarchy of Paladin enemy types. Exotic Locales - 5 combat arenas set all around the world – Colosseum, Griffin's Desert Lair, Nepal, Tokyo Streets and Experimental Lab Facility. Unlockable abilities - Unlockable skills and combos through gameplay. [Brash Entertainment] Collapse

  1. Overall, the gameplay is stale and the presentation is below average.
  2. One of the worst games on the console.
  3. There could have been a lot of innovative aspects, but in the end, it’s too repetitive. With not challenging the gamers, Jumper’s only redeeming factor is the easy-to-earn achievement points.
  4. Awful camera angles completely ruin the interesting battle system, almost non-existent and overall poor sound effects make it better played on mute and the graphics simply confuse me as to what decade it is.
  5. 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.
  6. The worst game on 360 and of this generation, Jumper's perfect only in its failure. [June 2008, p.81]

    Ill keep this short and sweet. This is a extremely low quality title that you can beat in one sitting. It has terrible visuals, gameplay and offers no challenge. The only reason one might seek to rent this game is the easy achievement factor. Expand

    Truly awful game. There are a ton of bad games based off of movies but this is one of the worst. Do not play this game at all unless you like truly awful games. It's not even worth it for the achievements. Expand
