Excerpt: As far as the current generation of PS2 games go, Stitch is about average. Each of the game's huge levels look nice and have a cartoon-like feel, but it's still rather sparse. There are a few cool lighting effects thrown in as well as some decent animation, but there's really nothing in the game that will make you stand up and take notice. One of the biggest obstacles in Stitch 's way is the poor camera system.
Excerpt: Stitch: Experiment 626 is the latest videogame entry meant to promote Disney’s recently released to DVD film, Lilo & Stitch. Unlike numerous Lilo & Stitch games that attempt to recreate the look and feel of the movie, Experiment 626 is being billed as a prequel of sorts, perhaps because releasing yet another L&S game based solely on the movie would be incredibly redundant.
Conclusion: The game pretty much boils down to Twitch traversing some area to collect the 50 DNA chains available. To entice you to spend more time searching to find everything, you also can find movie reels that can be sold to unlock the movie clips available on the DVD-Rom disc. (Damn those clever marketing geniuses, once again they find a reason for me to play more of the game and now eventually go see that movie!
Excerpt: I don't imagine myself a brilliant business man or anything, but I'd like to think I could spot a bad business decision if it was obvious enough. Now I'm not calling the run of Disney licensed games that have been kicked out over the years a bad business idea per se, because even if the game looked and played like Pong, but was called, say, Disney's Atlantis, it would still sell plenty of copies on name alone.
Excerpt: Imagine: a creature from the bowels of a cloning facility designed to be genetically indestructible, run amok on various corners of the universe set on destroying all life encountered and collecting DNA samples for his creator. Sounds a bit like Frankenstein meets an episode of Star Wars in which Spock would lose even his Vulcan sensibilities. It is Stitch: Experiment 626, a prequel to the new animated feature from Disney, Lilo and Stitch.
