Easy 1,000G and pretty fun party game

Going into this with no expectations I was pretty satisfied though there were quite a bit of issues.

The game is a beat em-up platformer that uses 20+ Cartoon Network characters from the retro Captain Planet up til the modern Flapjack.

Biggest issue - The sound effects are glitched
Basically you will hear the music and voices but during gameplay the sound effects are so low you can barely here them.

Biggest Compliment - Lots of content
26 Characters, each has four colors and a unique costume.
You obtain money you can use to buy characters, stages and video clips from the shows.

All in all it's a pretty fun game if you have some co-op friends locally! Check out my video review over at Youtube/Frazzleberry

Great idea, poor execution

This game has tons of potential. It has a gameplay style similar to that of Super Smash Bros but fails to have some crucial elements that make SSB a good game. The physics are all wonky. Its so floaty. You cant tell how hard you got hit because you'll always fly through the air at the same speed. The controls also felt very slippery. I found myself sometimes struggling to make a jump to a platform without sliding everywhere. However, there are quite a few redeeming qualities about this game. There's tons of content. Characters from Ben 10 all the way back to Dexters Laboratory make an appearance. There's also tons of references to these shows, new and old. If you grew up with Cartoon Network, especially the older shows as i did, you'll really enjoy this. Also, if youre an achievement hunter this is an easy 1000G. Got all of the achievements in 2 days. All in all, aside from the slippery controls and a few glitches, it was an enjoyable game for an old school fan of Cartoon Network cartoons.

You will love this game. Simply put it is by far the best rental I've gotten from GameFly yet, the only reason I'm not giving it a perfect 10 is there isn't an online multiplayer option so if you don't have people to play with you in person there isn't going to be much replay value after you be the story (which isn't too hard on hard) and mop up the rest of the achievements for fighting specific people in specific ways. If you have any questions feel free to message me on XBL at Kaiser Ren.
