Conclusion: 101-in-1 Explosive Megamix has a handful of promising mini-games, but the bulk of them end up being titles you’d normally find on a flash site. Given the price tag, I’d recommend picking it up if you find yourself traveling a ton, or are away from a computer for large amounts of time.
Conclusion: 101-in-1 Explosive Megamix looks to be a great buy for any casual gamer or mini-game fanatic. However, in a genre that's become washed out over the years by more of the same, this game fails to separate itself from the typical flash based game you'll find on the internet. Imperfect controls, a lack of online leader boards, and little replay value only hurt the game's image even further.
Excerpt: There are a lot of games that promise the world and do not deliver. Atlus' latest game doesn't promise the world, but it does have one hundred and one games in a single package for only $20. Does it deliver?
Summary: 101-in-1 Explosive Megamix is a collection of 101 addictive mini-game types including: puzzles, sports, racing, cooking, shooting, balancing, juggling, and much more. There is practically no end to the fast-paced arcade action!
Excerpt: The name Atlus brings to mind niche RPGs and short print runs, not minigame collections for the masses. The company's choice to publish 101-in-1 Explosive Megamix just shows that everybody wants their piece of the casual-market pie. Fortunately, the title they've chosen has the capacity to compete with the rest. Size is its strength. None of the individual activities stand out as technical marvels. Very few will last over a minute.
Conclusion: 101-in-1 bietet dem Spieler diverse Minispiele mit unterschiedlichem Schwierigkeitsgrad und verschiedenen Zielvorgaben. Leider sind die einzelnen Titel von kurzer Dauer und übertragen weder bei Erfolg noch Misserfolg genügend Motivation zur Fortsetzung. Wem jedoch die Minispiele aus New Super Mario Bros. zugesagt hatten, der kann möglicherweise bedenkenlos zugreifen.
Pros: Viele Minispiele, Freischaltbare Minispiele, Schöne Grafik im Comic-Stil
Cons: Nervige Musik, Keine Langzeitmotivation, Teilweise hoher Schwierigkeitsgrad
