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 made with the sole intention of entertaining the consumer, rather than to sell as many as possible.
  • Pros: Fun, addictive, varied, suitable for children and adults
  • Cons: Frustating, sometimes TOO difficult

  • Summary: Great game , loads of fun bought this to play on my wii looks great for an older game, but camera system can be a pain and often causes blind jumps , some of the later levels start to look a bit similar but there's enough gameplay and ideas overall to keep the game fun.

Billy Hatcher review

d.a.p., amazon.co.uk

  • 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). I believe this game had great potential but fallen due to lack of polish or finesse.

How original can you get?

  • 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... A CHICKEN!!! Yes, yet another chicken, only this is, yes, you guessed it, a Chicken Elder (a kind of King of the Level).
  • Pros: Colourful, lots of fun characters, long lasting and original
  • Cons: Can be repetative and frustrating

Billy Hatcher and The Giant Egg

  • 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. Gameplay: The gameplay is great. Not too easy, yet not too hard. Basically you just roll an egg around killing enemies and hatching the egg into animals or items.
  • Pros: Great multiplayer, grahics
  • Cons: A bit repatative, not enough characters

Sunny Side Ups and Downs

12 September 2004
  • 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. There is no doubting the brilliance of Sonic in his 2D form but the Sonic Adventure games on the Dreamcast never really seemed to gel well enough as a game. Sonic Heroes, while more polished, still doesn’t retain the Sonic charm that was apparent in the old games.
  • Pros: Bold and bright  |  Kinda different
  • Cons: Can repeat too much  |  Camera  |  Difficulty spikes

2003's most original platformer...

Patrick Graham "monomaniacpat", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Don't be put off by the day-glow visuals - Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg is a hardcore platformer - and one of the most inventive, and original of recent years. The game builds upon principals explored in games like Mario64 with wonderfully difficult Monkey Ball-esque ramp runs. This game has it's flaws, but it's design quality still shines through and if you stick with it, you'll be handsomely rewarded. Highly recommended.

egg-selent FUN - sega's best game in years

Mr Ash Parmenter, amazon.co.uk

  • 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). If you dont want to hear about this game or try it beacause it sounds stupid, give it a try and you'll realise what a fantasic, flawless, visually beautiful piece of video game work.

Light-hearted

Lady Deborah, amazon.co.uk
14 December 2003
  • Summary: When I first heard of Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg, I was very excited by the thought of hatching eggs and using the animals which hatch out of them to solve puzzles and advance through the game. But when I played a rental of Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg, I was disappointed by the lack of in-depth gameplay. It's a fun light-hearted game to play, but don't count on an intense story-line like the ones you'd find in a Final Fantasy type game.
