Is It Any Good?

No one would claim Frogger 3D to be an essential gaming experience. That said, it does provide a surprisingly multifacted -- and at times highly challenging –- street-crossing experience. Our frog can climb boxes to take longer leaps, hop over different levels of roadway (think overpasses), and can even use friends to his advantage, including metal frogs that block traffic and glowing frogs that help light dark areas. Special stages -- including one set on a cube and another in a sushi bar -- help mix things up even further.

However, these clever tricks can't hide that we're basically doing the same thing -- hopping around -- over and over again. Complicating matters, the game's high level of difficulty means that those who mind repetition least -- younger players -- may well find the action too frustrating to want to continue. It can be a fair bit of fun, but those who find it so for any substantial stretch of time probably won't be very great in number.
