George of the Jungle and the Search for the Secret review (WII)
12 June 2008
Excerpt: Friend to you, me, and to generations of children worldwide - George of the Jungle wails his way to Nintendo's family friendly console. Based on the Nick Toon's envisioning of the Jay Ward and Bill Scott franchise, this is a simplistic adventure in the mold of 2.5D platformers such as Pandemonium,...
Conclusion: Pros Simple to play, controls take about 5 seconds to pick up Nice animations and illustrations Cons Suffocatingly linear Boss battles are too hard Even the ideas for the mini-games have been copied Combat is as bland as it gets.
Conclusion: Wow, just wow. George of the Jungle isn’t a good game. Its not glitchy, it’s not buggy, it doesn’t look terrible and runs smoothly on the Wii. The problem is its unfair difficulty, imprecise motion controls, terrible cut scenes with loading screens stuck in the middle and awful voice acting.
Excerpt: George,George,George of the jungle…watch out for that Wii Based on the nick toons animated series, and not the movie (with Brendan Fraser as George and John Cleese as Ape Trivia fans). George of the Jungle is a sideways scrolling platformer of the lowest order.
Pros: Erm…Looks like the cartoon-That’s about it.
Cons: Dated gameplay,rubbish graphics, steep learning curve for target audience and no fun to play
