  1. Overall, this has made an old ToeJam and Earl fan very happy. I still would rather it be even more like the original title, but the final product is definitely great.
  2. A great videogame filled with some of the most impressive visuals you'll ever see, dripping with style and oozing with funk-essence. [Nov 2002, p.82]
  3. In the case you have kids or nephews; this is a perfect title to introduce young gamers into the world of video gaming. In fact, this may be the best Xbox game for kids.
  4. This is one wacky world the developers have created, and it perfectly captures the original title’s sense of humor, irreverence, and addictive fun.
  5. Whilst extremely generic, it offers huge amounts of fun for the first few hours. Get past that however, and you soon realise that beneath the low brow gags and goofy gifts, there’s not a lot left to make it stand out from the crowd.
  6. 63
    Soporific. There is too much repetition and not enough excitement.
  7. If you enjoy the first few levels and the repetitiveness of the gameplay and the jokes keep you laughing, you might enjoy the whole thing.

    It is F U N and ever so funky, a true platformer for grown ups.

    I think Toe Jam and Earl 3 is really cool because it's funny, creative and original.

    This game feels super pointless. You slowly wander around lame environments and have uninspired objectives to complete. One redeeming feature is the original characters and style. I wanted to like them, but they need to be in a better game to be mainstays. Expand
