A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
It's a game about fighting.
Violence & Scariness
It's a hand-to-hand fighting game with some weapons, but there is no blood. Griffin can also teleport to another location and leave an enemy there to perish.

It's based on the feature film, Jumper, but there is no visible advertising in the game.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a fighting game featuring hand-to-hand combat. The violence isn't that graphic because there is no blood and bodies disappear after falling to the ground. Parents should also know players will be treated to ten different "drop zone" cinematic sequences that quickly teleport Griffin and the enemy to another spot on earth -- and Griffin leaves the baddie in a comprising situation before zapping back to the present location. For example, the short video clip may show the enemy left in the middle of a frozen tundra, falling from a cliff, or about to be crushed in a garbage dump's car compacter. The dire end is not shown, just implied. While curse words can be heard, they aren't spoken very often.
Is It Any Good?
Even with its teleportation spin, the game is a derivative fighter that looks as bad as it plays. Not only are the graphics below par compared to today's video games, but technical glitches mean half of Griffin's body will get stuck in a wall or the camera will be temporarily positioned behind the wall Griffin is fighting near, so you can't see who you're brawling against. Because of its simplistic gameplay, unattractive graphics and technical glitches, Jumper: Griffin's Story should be overlooked at your local game store – even for fans of the film.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
