Conclusion: Perhaps one of the coolest, if not the coolest, features with Maboshi’s Arcade is the ability to send a demo to your Nintendo DS. With this demo, players turn their DS sideways, like they would with Brain Age .The DS version has downgraded graphics and all of the games are played using the D-pad. Both gameplay and music remain the same. It is a nice addition to the game since you are really getting two games for the price of one.
Excerpt: Just as sports games are perennially mocked for being more of the same, film adaptions are often ridiculed for not living up to the material they’re based on. Yet with Jumper , the two are perfectly aligned. The movie was a horrendous mess, with a predictable and poorly written script, dire acting and more plot holes than you could shake a stick at. It’s fitting then, that the game is just as shoddy.
Conclusion: The best part of the game is the 'drop zone' cut scenes, which are admittedly quite amusing the first time you see them, maybe not the 2nd, 3rd & 4th times though. On the other hand, if you've got a free Sunday afternoon you could probably nearly collect all 1000g off this game in about 3 or 4 hours. Whether that alone makes the game worth playing is up to you, but if your not into collecting gamerscore, there is little else in this game for you.
Conclusion: To be honest I was hoping it could be fun, despite knowing in my heart it wouldn't be. This is simply one of the worst experiences I've had with a game on the 360. Awful camera angles completely ruin the interesting battle system, almost non-existent and overall poor sound effects make it better played on mute and the graphics simply confuse me as to what decade it is. I'm fairly certain I could pay some high schoolers to make a better game than this.
Conclusion: Well yet again I've managed to yammer on for ages about a game barely worth your or my time, so let’s put us all out of our misery; this is the WORST 360 game I've played - by some distance. One day in the future I can imagine my grandchildren asking me " Grandiddly, did you fight in the war against terrorism? "...and I'll say " no kids, I played Jumper, it was a much tougher assignment ".
Pros: Um… Nice box art, Easy achievements if you can stand the embarrassment
Cons: Tedious and repetitive, The worst game camera ever – no, really - EVER, Dire graphics, Basic animation, Frame rate problems, Clipping, Lack of control, Bland, slapped-together level design and scenery, Fatal bugs requiring you to quit and restart
Excerpt: Fighting/Action/Jumping Around There was no blanket. Oh, Lord what was I thinking? I was eager to get this game reviewed (ask them, it’s true). I was eager to get this game (actually physically buy â€“ with real money) and play it, and see how well it played. And when I started playing it, I was eager to get it over and done with ASAP. Again I say – Oh, Lord what was I thinking? Well, this is Peoww’s first teleport-em-up.
Summary: To coinicide with the film released on February 15th, Jumper makes it's way to games consoles across the country. Whether it will be any good remains to be seen really but you'll find out here soon enough.
Why this abomination will be jumping straight back to the shop.

Summary: It's a messed up sign of the time when co-workers stare enviously at my copy of Jumper. I strongly suggest you forget about rinsing Jumper for an easy 1,000 GamerScore and do anything but waste two hours of your life on this garbage.
Pros: Combat system slightly original
Cons: Hideous sub-PS2 graphics, Takes two hours to complete, Broken camera, Bad voiceovers and cinematics
