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.
Excerpt: "...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). Do this a few dozen times and hey pesto, you've completed ...
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. 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. ...
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 Gamecube sweat too much.
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. I agree with most of the other review, but it might be worth mentioning that the game's a little easy in places, and is over all too soon.
Excerpt: Billy Hatcher lyder sikkert ukjent for de fleste, men dersom jeg nevner Sonic the Hedgehog ringer det sikkert en bjelle eller to. Det er nemlig Sonic Team som står bak dette eggskallet, og når det gjelder eggskall er det som regel innholdet som interesserer oss..
Pros: Fengende gameplay, stemningsfull grafikk og lyd, godt og lettvint kontrollsystem
Cons: Upresist nivådesign, til tider kranglete kamera og små bugs
