NDS Review - 'Back at the Barnyard: Slop Bucket Games'
26 September 2009
Summary: In Back at the Barnyard: Slop Bucket Games, players will be able to play as one of their favorite characters from the TV show and compete in a series of wild and wacky sporting events. Players will compete in the first annual Slop Bucket Games - a series of wacky, fun, sporting events and reinvented classic arcade games with barnyard motifs.
Excerpt: Citius, Altrius, Fortius . Since 1924, this Olympic Motto has officially symbolized the drive of countless athletes to push the limitations of the human body. Run faster. Jump higher. Be stronger. Anything to grab the gold medal.
Excerpt: What do you get when you cross a cow, a pig, and a wayward chicken, then throw in some tomatoes for good measure? THQ and Firemint's Back at the Barnard: Slop Bucket Games , of course. From a graphical standpoint, Slop Bucket Games is nearly a diamond in the rough. While the main environment that you walk through isn't exactly jaw-dropping, some of the mini-games look outstanding.
Conclusion: Back at the Barnyard Slop Bucket Games was somewhat entertaining for the couple of hours I played it, and younger kids may enjoy it more, since it might take them longer to beat. Younger children may also enjoy going back and playing the mini games over and over, but I don’t see myself touching the game again. Having only 10 mini-games available with not much else to do for $29.99, really seems like THQ and Nickelodeon were trying to cash in on the Barnyard license...
