  • Summary: Futurama begins when Professor Farnsworth sells his delivery ship to Mom, an evil businesswoman, giving her ownership of more than 50 percent of Earth. Now, with Mom threatening to enslave humanity, it's up to you to travel back in time to stop the deal from taking place. You can play as Fry, Bender, Leela, and Dr. Zoidberg, each with unique fighting skills and weapons. With each character, you must master their power-ups and complete their tasks to emerge victorious against Mom and her death bot troopers. Expand

  1. There's a large number of puzzles, keycard scenarios, platform jumping, etc, etc. For some this has become old-hat, but I think theres still fun to be found here.

    Fans of the show will love the game, even with the frustration factor as high as it is.
  3. The attention to detail evident in the presentation will please fans and provide a number of chuckles, however it's doubtful whether that much amusement comes from the actual game.
  4. 60
    It's the non-descript gameplay between [the cut scenes] that bogs Futurama down. The unbalanced and tedious action will try your patience.
  5. If you're just looking for a goofy, mindless, let's-waste-some-time type of fun then you'll enjoy Futurama.
  6. A cynical and at times deeply boring game to play. As a platformer, it won't have Naughty Dog barking [groan] or keep Insomniac up all night.
  7. 30
    There's a code you can enter to unlock all the FMVs so you can just rent it for a day, input the code, and then return it. Don't say Alkaiser never did nothing for his peoples.

    Woah. This game is one of the best 3D platformers to date, with hilarious characters and level design, awesome weapons and a HUGE difficulty factor. Why most people don't like this game I'll never know. The variety is great, explore deserts and caves in search of chrystals as Bender, as Fry you can blast mutants to their doom, put robots out of action in a giant chicken walker and platform in puzzle based levels, Lila's levels mostly focus on puzzle, although some serious challenges combat-wise can come up early in the game too. There are many other awesome background characters, enemies and the evil "MOM" to defeat, and areas to explore. Buy this game, you'll love it! Expand

    This is a fun game if your a fan of futurama but if not, stay away. The cutscenes are funny as hell and the dialog too. The game gets a little frustrating sometimes with the control and camera angles. Graphics are a 8, sound 9, music 6 and the replay value will be poor. Who wants to bust their neck in a game and do it again? No codes for X-box version (geez). Expand

    I love the Futurama TV series, but despite the excellent humour in this game I can't play it. The controls and camera are very bad. It is such a pity that what could have been an excellent game was ruined by bad gameplay mechanics. Why are games still released with terrible camera controls? These problems have been successfully solved by other developers. 'Unique Development Studios' must be running on autopilot. A crappy game. I'm particularly upset because I love Futurama (TV) so much. Why have they defiled it? Expand

    Hey man, just quietly this game was shocking. Even from the beginning when you have to die as part of the storyline, I thought I was really dead so kept turning my xbox off. It took me ages to realise that you were supposed to die. Also I found the constant storyline interruptions very irritating, it slows down how fast you can finish the game. All in all it is not a very good game hey. Expand
