Billy Hatcher review
17 January 2011
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.
Excerpt: "...in the old games. Billy Hatcher was meant to be the start of a whole new franchise for the Sonic Team but it failed to shine gaining lukewarm reviews and shockingly poor sales figures. So, what went wrong? Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg is from the creative minds of Sonic Team and Yuji Naka so the pedigree for a good, solid platformer is there in names at least. You take control of a young lad called Billy who has unwittingly taken it upon himself ...
Pros: Bold and bright | Kinda different
Cons: Can repeat too much | Camera | Difficulty spikes
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.
