Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (4 ):

The Super Smash Bros. series is a cornerstone of Nintendo's gaming lineup, so cloning it with the popular stars of several Caroon Network shows seems like a can't miss idea. Unfortunately, CARTOON NETWORK: PUNCH TIME EXPLOSION not only misses, it misses by a wide margin. The levels come across as generic. The controls aren't as responsive as they should be. And the multiplayer is underwhelming, to put it kindly. The use of 3D is similarly bland. Avid fans of the Cartoon Network may enjoy the chance to interact with their favorite characters, but others should steer clear.
