Billy Hatcher & the Giant Egg (GC)
21 August 2012
Excerpt: When I was younger and not very coordinated I would watch my older brother play games on various consoles throughout the years and Game Cube was no different. Despite Nintendo 64 probably being my favourite console, the Game Cube was a very close second because back then games seemed to have been...
Pros: Fun, addictive, varied, suitable for children and adults
Excerpt: Well, how original can you get? A guy called Billy dressed up in a chicken costume helping out chickens by squishing enemies by rolling a giant and then hatching the egg to reveal a hidden treasure which will help you hatch even more eggs to pregress through the levels until, finaly... You find...
Pros: Colourful, lots of fun characters, long lasting and original
Excerpt: General: When I first saw this game I was just like looks rubbish and put it down. But when I looked at the back it looked interesting. The idea is very unique. My friend had it and I took a couple of turns, then another couple. I just got so addicted to it. Anyways onto the review.
Excerpt: While Nintendo led a successful foray of 3D platforming with Mario 64, Sega just haven’t seemed to be able to grasp the transition from 2D to 3D.

Pros: Bold and bright | Kinda different
Cons: Can repeat too much | Camera | Difficulty spikes
Summary: Unlike the previous reviewer, I have actually played the full game - the US version, at least. I've seen no sign of glitches as they've described, but what I have seen - and seen a lot - is fun. It's great to roll eggs over enemies, for some strange reason.
Summary: The best way I can think to describe this game is a mix between a 3D Sonic game (yep, THOSE ones) and another Sega title, Super Monkey Ball... ie, rolling something around, collecting things, going round tricky obstacles (here, very unnecessarily tricky).
Summary: Billy Hatcher is a classic Sonic Team title, with great graphics, animation, effects, level design and all-round polish. I should stress though, that this is not graphically going to rock your world - it's impeccably designed but uses the Sonic Adventure graphics engine so it won't make your...
Summary: Now, you may not be impressed when you hear the title ' Billy Hatcher and the Giant egg, ' but when you play this game people of any age can really get into it. Complately unlike SEGA there are no glitches and no really annoying cut scenes (yes i am referring to Sonic).
