Reviewed by Jeremy Peeples Earthworm Jim was released for the Sega Genesis during the summer of 1994. Another version of the game was also made for the Super Nintendo, and a Special Edition of it was made of the Sega CD. Graphics-10/10- The characters are of a good stature, they all have an original look and have excellent animation. The animation must be seen to be believed, it's some of the smoothest ever seen in a video game in my opinion. Small graphical touches like snot coming off of your opponent in the bunjie jump levels or Jim's humorous waiting animations round out the beautiful graphics. Pros- Super-smooth animation (the waiting animations are hilarious) and nice graphical touches help make the graphics one of the game's best features. Cons- None Sound-8/10- The in-game music is great, it always fits the stages perfectly, The sound effects are also excellent, each one is crystal clear and fits in with the on-screen action perfectly. The only downside is that the music sometimes sounds repititious. Pros- The music is great, as are the sound effects. Cons- The music does occasionally get repetitious. Gameplay-8/10- You go through many levels destroying bad guys in order to get to that level's boss, It's basically the same goal as in every other side-scrolling game, but the wondrous level design adds even more humor to the game (What the Heck? is a perfect example. Pros- Original, highly entertaining level design. Cons- Nothing new has really been added. Control-9/10- Perfect in almost every way imaginable, the only problem being that of swinging from one area to the next, it's a little choppy in that respect, but it's perfect in every other. Pros- It's very responsive in most areas. Cons- Except the swinging areas. Presentation-9/10- Excellent, everything is vibrant and alive, from the title screen to the death scenes, it's all great. Pros- Everything fits the setting and characters of the game. Cons- None Replay Value-5/10- It's always fun to play this game, It's just too bad that there's nothing left to accomplish after you've beaten it, the only thing you really could do is try to beat you old score. It's the game's fatal flaw. Pros- It's always fun to play. Cons- There's not much new to do after you beat it. Overall-9/10- The graphics are superb, as is the sound, and the control is, for the most part, perfect. If you love old-school platformers, buy this game. For Nomad Owners- The game works great, the great graphics, sound and controls are all retained perfectly. Overall, Earthworm Jim is another excellent game for Nomad owners. Rent or Buy?-Buy- Not many places rent Sega Genesis games anymore, but this game shouldn't cost more than $15, it's a great game at any price and is worth playing.
