Summary: As a child I used to "borrow" the comics from my dad's newspaper to see the Garfield comic and I also used to watch the cartoon every Saturday, so I am a big fan. At 24 years old, I am still a huge fan of Garfield. When I saw that there was a video game, I skeptical that it would make a good gaming experience, because, really, all he did was eat, sleep and insult Odie and Jon.
Summary: This is a terrific game! The graphics are fantastic.....Garfield looks exactly as he does in the comics and the scenery is cute too (the stained glass windows in the castle have pooky on them :) ) The game play does not involve the stylus.....it is just jumping and kicking and pushing objects, like a Mario game. There are clues along the way to help you through each level to the checkpoints.
Summary: Loved this game! I like simple action-adventure, "Mario-like" games and puzzles. There is nothing new in this game, but it was fun to play. Graphics are good. Music is not annoying. Levels get progressively more challenging. Plus, it's Garfield! Who doesn't love Garfield? I also played "Garfield's Fun Fest" and found Nightmare to be much more entertaining. If you are trying to decide between the two, go with Nightmare.
Most Adorable, Fun, Game Yet!! For a 5 year old and non-gamer mom!

Summary: I have bought almost 30 games, since last Christmas. Most of our games...we get bored with after a while, turn around to sell them used on Ebay. However, this game is a keeper. My 5 year old and myself, cannot get enough of this game. It's so adorable and the 3-D is awesome. The graphics are so creative and neat to look at.
Summary: Garfield's Nightmare is geared to kids without losing any of the punch found in Mario Bros. Garfield gathers donuts instead of coins and the various ghost, spiders, bats, and such are less aggressive (at least on the early stages we've seen so far) than the various imps on Mario. The kids enjoy playing it themselves and watching me play it, as well.
