Overly simplistic, tedious tie-in to the cartoon.

Although expectations are generally fairly low for a SpongeBob game, SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton's Robotic Revenge still fails to live up to them. It offers cooperative play (allowing siblings and friends to play together in the same room), but the gameplay is incredibly repetitive -- and the level design feels like an afterthought. Even the boss battles are similar.

To win, all you have to do is run around holding the "attack" button and dodging slow enemy fire. Should you move too slowly and fall in the field, friends can come stand near you and revive you. The game is short, uninspired, and graphically lacking -- with the exception of the introductory and cut scenes, which are much more polished.

Worst of all, though, the game's not funny, despite the presence of the show's vocal cast. Were it not for the constant shooting, this might be a good game for a 5- or 6-year-old, but, as it stands, it's not a good choice for anyone.
