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.
