Is It Any Good?

Kids say (3 ):

If there were any redeeming quality to this game, it would be that fans of the cartoon get to see their favorite characters in wacky situations without having to turn on the television or wait for the show. But for children who like varied activities and challenging situations, this game will not satisfy their needs.

The developers decided to use the cheapest and least efficient technology available to create the game. It's quite obvious, from the choppy opening animation through to the unimaginative gameplay that THQ wanted to get a game based on the popular cartoon on the shelves as quickly as possible. Redundancy and lack of ingenuity pervades all 11 levels of the game and will have most children (and even adults) eager to turn off the computer before level 3 can be completed.
