  1. It's infectious, fulfilling, and cheeky as all Hades, so enjoy the heck out of Vince, and then make some noise for a sequel. [Nov 2003, p.75]
  2. Quite simply the best platform game ever seen on the Xbox. The game fires on all cylinders and delivers a solid platform adventure with hilarious characters and dialogue.
  3. The game provides an interesting take on platform games and has a nice combination of platform-jumping and puzzle solving gameplay.
  4. A lighthearted traipse through New Orleans's fancifully imagined heart of darkness.
  5. Doesn't really have any significant flaws beyond the odd moment of frustration and the occasional gimmicky voodoo power. It's beautifully presented, full of imagination, and delightfully off-the-wall.
  6. It'll take a little while to get the hang of Vince's structure and layout, but he controls so tightly it's fun to get lost for a while. [Dec 2003, p.158]
  7. The sound was actually pretty good. The in-game soundtrack which was heavily influenced by the New Orleans jazz scene was actually quite good and I didn't mind listening to the same songs over and over again as I repeatedly restarted a level.
  8. A better than average platformer with a great look, a lot of atmosphere, and a few interesting twists on the genre.
  9. A challenging yet fully enjoyable platform game. With a name like Voodoo Vince, you don't expect much. But you get much.
