  1. Yes, a little innovation scattered here and there would be great and maybe a few more difficult aspects thrown in for older fans of the show, would have been appreciated, but this game does so much right, that it’s hard to complain too much. Fans of the show or parents of fans of the show will certainly enjoy this homage to the FOP.

    Fans of the show will dig the humor and graphics. [Jan 2005, p.105]
  3. It just doesn’t do anything particularly interesting to warrant playing through unless you’re a diehard fan of the series.
  4. If, like me, you have a couple of kids, even teens, prancing around the house – go ahead and rent Fairly Odd Parents: Shadow Showdown for a weekend. They’re sure to get a kick out of seeing familiar characters onscreen, even if only for a few minutes. For seasoned adults, the gameplay will prove to be a bit tired, yet strangely addictive.
  5. 50
    It squeaks by with bland, tired game mechanics and graphics that just don’t hold up to today’s gamer.
