Reviews and Problems with Garfield And His Nine Lives

Excerpt: Garfield stars in his very own Game Boy Advance game, rescuing friends and eating junk food...even while he's sleeping. Much like the recent Garfield movies, there's really nothing to see here unless you have a five-year-old screaming for it.
Pros: ups: cute graphics, easy-to-grasp gameplay
Cons: downs: too short, not very challenging for adult audiences
Excerpt: For a cat as lazy as Garfield, this Game Factory published title has
him, running and jumping through various locales. What would cause this
extremely fat cat to run around collecting keys, eggs, and other
various items (including his stuffed bear, Pooky)? Apparently, he’s
having a nightmare.
Excerpt: Perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Garfield and his Nine Lives isn’t likely to ever make anyone’s Top 10 list. Licensed games rarely do. Still, I had pretty high hopes for it when I plugged it into my handheld and started what was to be a quick romp through its nine stages.
Summary: A childhood classic is back, but unfortunately it's worse than ever.
Pros: You get to play as Garfield; graphics are adequate.
Cons: The text and story are terrible; audio is merely average; controls are extremely difficult to use; very short gameplay is extended for those who want to go back and try to collect everything in the game.
