Excerpt: Anyone who watched Nickelodeon during the 90s should remember Rocko’s Modern Life , a surreal story about the daily struggles of a wallaby living and working in the city.

Summary: Phineas and Ferb Ride Again is a mix of mediocre gaming elements tied together with a four part story that reads more like fan-fic than the actual show. It should be interesting enough and easy enough for the Second Grade set. I don’t imagine it is the sort of game, they would want to play for more than a week or so, but it can be fun while it lasts.
