I was unable to play this game due to my X-box not being able to read the disc. When I received the game in the mail today, 3/31/12, I noticed some dings on the outer edge of the disc. When I tried to play it, my X-box couldn't read it, and it kept offering the Open Tray option. I did try other games in my X-box and they worked just fine. I would still like to try the game since I have enjoyed Spongebob's previous adventures, but, unfortunately, this copy won't let me. :)

I rented this game so that I could play it with my daughter. We're both huge Spongbob fans. It only took a few levels before we were utterly bored with the game. Aside from the cast of characters, the actual game has little to do with Bikini Bottom. Throughout the levels you meet up with Spongebob's friends, reliving memories that Spongebob holds dear. But rather than creating a game around the events we normally see on the show, you get some strange levels, which have nothing to do with the show.
The gameplay is alright. It's not too difficult for the little ones, but a 6 year old may have difficulty with some of the platform aspects of the game.
Playing the game in co-op leaves a lot to be desired. There is very little you can do as plankton. I can understand why they chose to have plankton stay on your back, but they should have given him a lot more abilities.
If you're renting the game because you can't get enough of Spongebob, you should pass on this game. The game doesn't do the little sponge justice. If you're looking for a good platform game you're going to want to pass on this. If you're looking for a game you can play with your kids, there are many better choices out there.
