    It lacks staying power.

    A blend of Spider-Man and Tony Hawk, Energy Hook is the kind of old-school Activision-inspired outing that any millennial should be able to enjoy. Unfortunately, the execution's just not there, and cumbersome controls coupled with some real lousy presentation mean that this is a swing and a miss we're sad to say.

    The game is basically just you trying to pull off ‘stylish’ stunts as you swing around, doing whatever the game tells you to do. I put stylish in quotation marks, because what I know stylish to mean and what the game thinks it means are apparently two different things.

    This is the absolute bottom of the barrel, a completely unenjoyable, unplayable mess from start to finish that's a strong contender for the title of worst game ever made.

    I hate this game so much. The jerky camera made me nauseous. One of the worse controlled games I have ever played. Might be the worst gameI hate this game so much.
