  • Summary: Spare Parts tells the story of courageous robots Mar-T and Chip, who find themselves dumped out with the trash on a strange planet. Working together in co-op mode (either local or online), the mechanical duo must find a way to repair an abandoned space ship and escape the planet before evil Lord Krung can dispatch his henchmen to destroy them. Searching the hostile environments for ship parts and currency, Mar-T and Chip will also collect upgradable action parts – such as Rocket Boots - to unlock new abilities that will aid them as they rescue other stranded robots, and battle countless enemies including the relentless Krofax troopers, hostile spider monkeys and even a Super Huge Mega Laser!

    Spare Parts is a solid platformer if you're playing solo, but it really shines in multiplayer.

    While it's lacking in personality, Spare Parts still isn't bad. It's unfortunate that the script work didn't use Simon Pegg as well as it could have, but there is an acceptable platformer underneath.

    Spare Parts could have been better. Nevertheless, the title produced by EA is fun and never frustrating. Don't expect a game that will leave an indelible mark in your memory, but, for some carefree hours of play, it's very good.

    Spare Parts has all the right ingredients to be a great puzzle adventure game but never doesn't stand out above the competition in any way. Simon Pegg tries very hard to keep the game interesting with his witty remarks but it's just too little too late.

    The boredom of playing as this droid isn't helped by the drab nature of the game's design. [Issue#70, p.100]

    Maddeningly obtuse design more often than not makes Spare Parts an exercise in irritation rather than fun.

    It's a short and rather insipid slog that simply doesn't have the charm or ambition to compensate for its wonkier aspects.

    DISCLAIMER:This is numbered at 8 for children, my kids (5, 6, 7) have been playing this game non-stop, they love the characters and it has tons of replay value. They have been playing it for over 8 hours and their friends love watching them. The only other game they have played this long are the Legos series games. If you do not have a Wii this is one of the best bets for you kids if they have played all of the legos games Expand
