    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.
  2. The developers are taking the license seriously and have produced a game that feels more like an episode of the series than the typical cash-grab game with popular characters thrown on it.
  3. Like Bob himself, this game holds its water and is, in fact, remarkably fun. [Jan 2004, p.86]

    I'm constantly amazed by the how much THQ and Heavy Iron got right -- this truly is like playing through an episode.
  5. The facts remain: it's nicely crafted, fittingly visualized, and undeniably entertaining at times. [Jan 2004, p.74]
  6. What really makes this one tick, though, is a level of creativity imbedded into each scenario that makes it impossible to put down, regardless of your maturity or lack thereof. [Nov 2003, p.80]
  7. 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.
  8. Heavy Iron may not have been especially creative here, but at least it's stealing from the right places. [Dec/Jan 2004, p.100]

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 »

    This is truly a fun game, no matter your age! Don't let the mixed reviews fool you-- this game is good. If you liked games like Mario This is truly a fun game, no matter your age! Don't let the mixed reviews fool you-- this game is good. If you liked games like Mario Brothers, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc...(back in the day of course), then you will enjoy this game. Lots of fun colorful environments to explore, and it won't drive you crazy trying to figure everything out. Don't get me wrong, the game is plenty challenging, but you can usually figure out what you need to do relatively quicky. In any event, I highly recommend this game! Great for kids and adults alike, especially if you enjoy the cartoon's humor (which you will see throughout the game)! Full Review »
