  • Excerpt: Dr. Muto uses the basic treasure hunt philosophy of most platformer games with some significant twists. You won’t find a cute, fuzzy mascot-ready main character here. Instead you are in control of Dr.

Dr. Muto – Review

GameCritics.com
30 April 2003
  • Excerpt: Admittedly, Dr. Muto looked interesting at first. Stylistically, it could have turned the platform genre upside down. Instead, the game ended up as nothing more than a half-hearted production. It lacked the focus and the daring to take a great concept to its logical conclusion. The end product contained a few inspired moments, but the developers ultimately came up with a conventional platforming experience that was not only lacking in imagination, but was also poorly...

  • Excerpt: How can I explain the world that is Dr. Muto ? Well, picture your average platformer, and add really twisted-looking creatures to inhabit it. Dr. Muto is graphically pretty good, but nothing you haven't seen before. The worlds you stroll through have rock, water, fire, etc., just as with every game of this genre ever made.

Dr. Muto Review

GameSpot
22 November 2002
  • Excerpt: Dr. Muto isn't exactly the most inspiring platforming character ever created--this mad scientist of small stature relies on a remote control device to attack enemies and wears a pair of small rocket shoes to jump around in the gameworld. Indeed, the game Dr. Muto is least exciting and shows most of its weaknesses when it focuses on its main character, but as you progress through the game, the doctor will gain the ability to change into different types of animals.

  • Conclusion: Witziges Hüpfspiel mit verkorkster Kamera, verbesserungswürdiger Steuerung und einem leichten Mangel an Ideen. Absolute Jump&Run-Liebhaber können trotzdem einen Blick riskieren.
