Very Good

Not too bad, just use Classic or Gamecube controls

My 6yr old DVR's at least 4 Spongebob episodes a day & it's his favorite. I had been thinking about gettining this game for him sincenit quietly came out last year but wasnt sure whether to get Wii or 360 version.

We rented the Wii version and he got frustrated pretty quick with the motion controls & pretty much made me play the whole 1st level. It has some goofy mechanics such as shake the nunchuck to do the spatula slam, etc. Of course he'd get mixed up & shake the wiimote instead. I understand that also does a move, but it's not unlocked until later in the game.

Later in options/settings I discovered it also supports the Wii classic controller as well as the Gamecube controller. I had him try that same level using the classic controller & he had a much more enjoyable time. Now the spatula slam is simply a button press & the camera is the right analog stick.

So for what it is and as much as he likes the license, I give this game an 8. It looks good, sounds good, & plays good with whichever control scheme you or your child prefers. I may still get the 360 one since I think he's more use to the colored buttons instead of them just being letters on the classic controller. This may make in game & menu navigation easier.
