Earthworm Jim

Reviewed by Clint A game that stands out from all the others only on its oddness. You are an earthworm who, by chance, crawled into a strange suit that allows you to become the size of a human and fight against the forces of evil. Shiny also did the fantastic PC game MDK. This game would be a great weekend rental to any gamer.

Graphics 6 out of 10

Nice graphics with a decent background foreground separation. The graphics fit this game very well with its semi comic book feel.

Music and Sound 9 out of 10

Great sound effects and music. The guns, screams, and explosions all sound incredible. The music is also nothing to forget. I actually saw a special on TV a little while ago about the music engineer who worked on this game and his fantastic taste for game music. Perfect music for the scenarios you are in during the game.

Game Challenge 8 out of 10

This game doesn't come easily to anyone. This game does well at starting out easy, but becoming progressively harder as you continue. Easy to start, hard to master.

Game Play-Fun 8 out of 10

Very fun game, mostly because of its humor. It is a very interesting game with parodies of other games and of some movies also. The amount of references made in the game are a lot like Duke Nukem's references. One part of the game has you being chased in the dark by two giant pair of eyes. You never see what exactly that thing is.

Frustration

The challenge can get to you eventually. There is nothing more frustrating than playing through the game and dying on the last level and having to begin all over again, but this is true for any game.

Replayability 8 out of 10

A game very easy to pick up and start over again. The game can move very quickly and the constant action make this fun every time you play it.

Game Value 6 out of 10

I don't know, it may not be good enough to buy. Although, a clear choice to rent. I am pretty conservative in my money spending right now, so I am kind of biased.

Ending 3 out of 10

Do you remember Eyedol's ending in Killer Instinct? Where his mother came up to him and explained how he is really her child because of his bracelets. He then decides no and smashes her into the ground. I was very impressed and glad that someone else thought that Blanka's ending from Street Fighter was cheesy and made a parody of it. Some endings can make the game. This one did not. The ending was very disappointing. It was based all on one pretty dumb joke. But, that only took a little away from the entire game experience.

Overall 7 out of 10

A renter to anyone and some people will enjoy it enough to buy. Check it out if you haven't, but don't go to Toy's R Us until you try it.
