Death Jr.

playmagazine
8 May 2009
  • Conclusion: DJ’s scythe is one handy murder weapon; wire slides, ledge grabs, and hook- and rafter-swings are all on the menu as the game oscillates between manic shooting (certain enemies are wicked fast) and platforming. Pacing, gameplay and especially music (Bob Baffy wasn’t kidding when he talked about giving the music character) are all thumbs way up.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: was the first game shown by Sony for their new PlayStation Portable handheld. Even before the game released, it spawned a comic book and future movie release. The game itself is a cute little tale of Death Jr. (DJ) and his friends including Pandora, Stigmartha, Seep and Smith and Weston, all of whom go to a museum one day.

Death Jr. – Review

GameCritics.com
18 May 2006
  • Excerpt: What happened? Death, Jr. was the first game ever shown for the Sony PSP, and after long delay it finally arrives in the state that I can only categorize as completely embarrassing. For starting out life as a showcase title and being one of the most visible and promising intellectual properties in recent years, the final result is so terrible I can hardly believe it.

Death Jr.

Playstation Illustrated
24 March 2006
  • Excerpt: Death Jr. is a nice surprise - a platforming action game that really delivers. Chalk it up largely to style, for this is a great looking game with lots of neat touches that help push it over just being run-of-the-mill. In the Good Looks department, there are great lighting effects on "DJ's" weapons and pick-ups. The weapon lighting is mostly a style thing, but for the pick-ups or objects that offer some interaction to be shown more prominently on screen is functional.

Death Jr.

Just RPG
24 March 2006
  • Excerpt: Death Jr. , from Konami, is an action game with a touch of platforming. The game features a rather unique cast of characters, and some heavy action and platforming. So is Death Jr. a must-have for the PSP? Read on to find out! The storyline in Death Jr. follows DJ, who is none other than the son of Death. Aside from being Death's son, DJ is a pretty average kid who attends school and likes to hang out with his friends.

Creaky controls kill this creepy, creative game.

Common Sense Media
21 March 2006
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a creative platform game with a morbid sense of humor. The game is dark in the same vein as Tim Burton's Beetlejuice or Corpse Bride . Creepy compatriots and ghoulish enemies share the screen with playfully macabre music, silly settings and a protagonist that is the awkward, love-struck offspring of the Grim Reaper.

  • Excerpt: The answer is complicated. Death Jr. (Or DJ as his mother and friends call him) , has his moments but in all is a bit lackluster. However, if you’re looking for an average platformer for your PSP, don’t miss out on this.

Death, Jr.

Portable Review
22 October 2005
  • Excerpt: From the time the PSP was announced to its release in Japan, the only real screenshots available were those of Death Jr. This fact alone has caused the hype surrounding the game to rise to unreasonable heights. It’s not so much that Death Jr. is a bad game, but rather that it doesn’t meet up to the hype.
