    I'm constantly amazed by the how much THQ and Heavy Iron got right -- this truly is like playing through an episode.

    It's all not as bad as it could have been, but nothing you can't get from dozens of other games...as average as they come.

    Heavy Iron may not have been especially creative here, but at least it's stealing from the right places. [Dec/Jan 2004, p.100]
  4. The visual style, the sounds, and the jokes are straight out of the show, and all come together to create a fun and enjoyable game.

The game is challenging, adventurous, and pretty long, all of which I like. Now many people might think it's a kid game because it is a spongebob game, but let me tell you, this is truly a game for all ages. In terms of pure enjoyment, this may be my #1 spot. Full Review »

Truly a masterpiece. Took me quite a while to get the hang of cruise boosting, but once I got it down I was completely enthralled. The first time I actually did it I was all like Whoa, I'm quick. Nothing gives me quite the rush like hitting a perfect oil skip in the beginning of Dream, or flawlessly executing the hammer skip on my first try. Don't even get me started on the reverse cruise boost. This game is truly a work of art, 10/10 would skip the final boss again. Full Review »
