Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion Review

Cheat Code Central
8 November 2011

Cartoon brawler is pale imitation of Super Smash Bros.

Common Sense Media
12 September 2011
  • Summary: Parents need to know that even though Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion is a game centering around a number of popular Cartoon Network franchises, it's a fighting game that doesn't pull many punches. While the violence is all cartoonish, it's nonstop and not for young kids. Everything is over the top, but there are all sorts of bad examples, including flatulant- and burp-prone attacks along with several that are more directly aggressive.

Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion Review

GameSpot
12 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Punch Time Explosion doesn't just take inspiration from Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. series. Rather, it's as if Dexter, Samurai Jack, and a bunch of their Cartoon Network buddies staged an invasion to oust Mario, Link, and the rest of the Smash Bros. gang from the land of zany multiplayer brawlers and claim the territory as their own. The Cartoon Network crew makes a spirited effort, and they give Punch Time Explosion plenty of personality.
  • Pros: A number of charming, likable Cartoon Network characters, Story mode keeps things varied
  • Cons: Shallow combat, Some frustrating platforming sections, Multiplayer lacks online support

  • Conclusion: So now you might be wondering why I didn’t mention toons like SpongeBob or Invader ZIM. Well that’s on another network, I just stayed with the CN stuff. But don’t worry, next month, 2K Play is releasing a baseball game starring Nicktoons characters. And I’ll probably write a similar blog about the Nicktoons in that game. So don’t worry, Nickelodeon fans, you’ll get a chance to profess your love to SpongeBob in about a month in that blog.

Cartoon Network Punch-Time Explosion Review

AtomicGamer
22 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Nintendo 3DS owners sick of punching and kicking their way through core fighters such as Street Fighter 3DS and Dead of Alive: Dimensions , and craving a more casual beat-’em up, may want to put up their dukes up for Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion . Yes, it’s a blatant rip-off of the Smash Bros. series, and no, it’s not nearly as polished as Nintendo’s mascot mash-up, but it still packs plenty of personality and fast, accessible action.

Steals The Smash Bros. Recipe But Ditches The Fun

Game Informer
7 June 2011
  • Conclusion: Concept: Copy and paste the Smash Bros. schema, but swap out Nintendo characters with Cartoon Network favorites Graphics: You’ll stop caring about the three-dimensional visuals after the first few moments. The character models are loyal to the cartoons, but everything else feels generic Sound: If you didn’t already know each characters’ catchphrase, you’ll have them memorized in no time Playability: Imagine playing Smash Bros.
