  1. The level of fun wears thin fast in this game, making it suitable for short increments of play if you’d like to keep yourself from becoming bored. It’s easily the worst in the BK Games Series.

    The hilarity of watching the King creep around and then cap off a crazy dance by handing over some sort of food is worth it and you pretty much have to own it just so you can say that you do.
  3. Despite the rough edges, the price alone makes Sneak King worth checking out, particularly for the younger audience.

    Sneak King is undeniably fun for a while and certainly a guilty pleasure, but its main failing is that it quickly becomes repetitive.
  5. The gameplay is one-note repetitive, the environments are stupidly simplistic, and the product placement is overtly in your face. [Holiday 2006, p.78]
  6. You get what you pay for, so don’t expect anything groundbreaking here. However, I feel confident that most gamers can get at least some level of enjoyment out of this game, even if it’s just a few laughs.
  7. Sneak King isn't a good game, but it's so crazy and so cheap that it still manages to be weirdly compelling.
  8. 55
    At $3.99 with the purchase of a Burger King value meal, Sneak King is far cheaper, and surprisingly better, than most games on the Xbox Live Arcade.
  9. At first its kookiness will have you and any onlookers cracking up, as you watch the King prowl around and do his little dances, but after only ten minutes of play you'll have seen everything the game has to offer, and from then on playing the rest of the way feels more like a chore than anything else - Sneak King is a one-trick pony and its one trick gets old far too soon.
  10. Limited and gets old, fast. Yes, it is some great fun when you first begin (who doesn't want to scare people half to death for shock value??!!), but it gets old too quick.
  11. Sneak King gets stale ridiculously fast. At least the achievements are easy.
  12. 50
    Best taken in short bursts, the King's solo effort is a decent romp through the world of fast-food capitalism, but only if one can stomach the incredibly frustrating camera and challenges that don't quite test the ol' reflexes.
  13. 40
    I can only see this game having use as a cheap and definitely non habit forming method of sleep aid with nightmares as a possible side effect. Or a coaster.
  14. I will say that Sneak King was successful from the perspective that it provides an hour or two of incredibly offbeat play, not to mention the fact that it got me into a Burger King for the first time in years. If it wasn't for the stomachache and heartburn afterwards, I'd say it was a win-win situation.
  15. By the time you finish the burger and fries this game came with, you’ll already be bored with it.

    Sneak King is the gaming equivalent of the Whopper – tasty at first, though nothing special, and it makes you feel kind of ill by the end.

    This game is a one trick pony of a game. Oh, what a creepy and interesting game it is. Sneaking about, hiding, waiting for the right moment to expose yourself...and a tasty hot meal, is so funny and weird. It keeps the game interesting enough for a little bit. However, your task never grows beyond finding the hungry person, hiding, and popping out when they walk by. You'll lose interest in the game, probably within the first hour, unless you just HAVE to get the achievements. Missions get kinda long, the game is pretty ugly. But hell, the game has a sense of humor, it's fun to see at least. Full Review »

    Sneak King did entertain me and make me laugh, however is humor enough to make this an enjoyable game? Sneak King is somewhat open world which I think was a great choice of the developers. Sure, it isn't that fun to explore the open world but it is cool to give people burgers even when you are not playing a 'level'. The game kept me interested for a while with its wide variety of places to hide, but the game is still very repetitive. Heres how a level normally goes: "Wait for hungry person, hide behind them or in some object you can hide in, surprise them, watch a funny animation, repeat". You do the same thing over and over again! However, the game is only about $5 on Amazon and eBay, so you are not being ripped off or anything, although I wouldn't recommend buying this for over $5.

    If I had to choose between pulling my own wisdom tooth out with pliers or play this game, I'd play this game, but it's still an awful cash in product. With no story to carry it along you move the creepy mascot in a game that promotes stealth, but don't use any fundamental mechanics that actually work. The game is painfully slow probably to pad out the game length but that's no excuse to make only one mission in terms of variety. It's torture to play a game that comes with blocky and ugly graphics. The audio works, but it's not music to the ears. Worst of all, this makes Burger King look worse than it should be with this kind of promotion. It's not the best of games, and for good reason.
