  1. While somewhat repetitious, the linear design and simple control schemes will draw players along and it is not hard to work through the levels.
  2. This game is rated E for Everyone, and rightfully so as only gamers around ten or younger could really find enjoyment playing as their favorite Nicktoon character.
  3. It's a simple game--so simple that it's really not good for anyone over the age of 9 or 10--but it's not bad, and the way it's structured makes it perfect for parents to jump in and out to help when kids get stuck.
  4. A manual camera (or at least one that would stay static), a lineup that would include more Nicktoons, and a difficulty select would greatly improve the game.

    Co-op trash aimed at under-10s. Give us Mickey and Donald anyday. [June 2006, p.80]

    We like SpongeBob, but teaming him up with his Nickelodeon pals has resulted in a generic platformer with precious little originality or energy. [May 2006, p.94]

    Spongebob Squarepants and Friends Unite! will provide a bit for the fans but anyone looking for co-op action should look elsewhere, even if they’re under ten.

    Its a good game for kids. I must agree with Gaming Age that more playable characters and a manual camera should have been provided.

The storyline is average, the graphics are average, the boss battles are way too long, but still average, and the levels are again, way too long, but I guess there tolerable. The gameplay is fun, I guess, and every character does get their own unique abilities, but the abilities are rarely used in the game, and the game itself is extremely linear. Also, the camera really does suck, but it won't be that annoying unless you force it to be. So overall, buy it if your fan of the shows, but be warned that there isn't a ton here. Expand

There is some clear love by the developers with references to each characters show. However, the game was clearly made in a year. The game is slow, clunky, and sometimes frustrated. Character abilities, which cool on paper, are clunky to activate and only really slows down any flow that combat may have had. Not help that enemies block half your attacks. Enemies also use that the gain a free hit. Unless you block, but that drains your energy which you need to use your abilities. See the problem here? The presentation also sucks. Stages have little color and filled with fog. The music is very quite. In fact, it's barely music at all. Also the O button is jump. I know it's the only PS2 game to do so (Kingdom Hearts). But considering that this was my first platforming game, that kind of messed me up. Bottom line, this could have good, but small development time made just bad. Expand
