  1. Definitely one for the younger gamers (and by that I mean the under tens) and fans of the boy genius who'll no doubt find enough to entertain them.

    The biggest trouble spot in Jimmy Neutron, though, is the fixed camera, which lets you see each area in the game from only one angle. While a fixed camera does a great deal to prevent the visual confusion that's often a problem in platform games, it means the environments can't be fully viewed.
  3. The problems are not just with the dullness of the game, the scrappy presentation or the lack of focus, but the controls are a bit shoddy too.
  4. Just because its targeted at youngsters doesn’t mean it has to be terrible.

Especially if you take into account how solid some of the other Jimmy Neutron games were on console and PC. Attack of the twonkies is pretty enjoyable and both Twonkies and Jet fusion have way more accurate visuals and voice acting. This game either doesn't have the voice actors of if they do they've suddenly forgotton how to act. I played this on stream and it was fun because it was a shared experience but don't waste your time! Expand

    JNBG is one of those games where the playtesters involved need to all have their hands broken. This game stinks. The counter-intuitive JNBG is one of those games where the playtesters involved need to all have their hands broken. This game stinks. The counter-intuitive controls are awful and the slow rate of speed at which Jimmy moves makes one wonder whether he and Harry Potter were in the same girls' PE class. For example, Jimmy can fall into radioactive waste in one section and only lose part of a "pie" (the life force indicator) and on other levels he's killed instantly if he accidentally hops into green goop. As far as children's games go this product is only suitable as a gift for kids you don't like. Expand
