Summary: Spare Parts is cute, but derivative and unpolished. There are some neat powers and level design, but poor platforming, repetitive combat, and a wayward camera hinder the experience. It's not without its charms and can be enjoyable, but there's nothing in here that hasn't been done better before.
Pros: Slick animations, Fun powers, High-fives!
Cons: Spotty platforming, Frustrating and broken camera, Too much repetitive combat near the end
Conclusion: On a technical level, Spare Parts runs fine on both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 with few differences between the two, although certain textures are slightly crisper on the Xbox 360. (We did, however, experience two lockups on the second boss while playing on the Xbox 360.
Pros: Colorful, lively characters and environments, Excellent though ill-used narration by Simon Pegg.
Cons: Poor camera in cooperative mode, Repetitive button-mashing gameplay, Imprecise controls.

The name all too often highlights the clunky way this online and offline cooperative journey borrows liberally from Ratchet & Clank and misuses the considerable voice talents of Simon Pegg, resulting in...
Pros: Colorful, lively characters and environments, Excellent though ill-used narration by Simon Pegg

Excerpt: Den britiske komiker og skuespiller Simon Pegg lægger stemme til dette robot-eventyr, som har Electronic Arts til at trække det økonomiske læs.
