My son and I are currently playing this game. The graphics are good for a game based on a cartoon. The controls are easy to use with x button being used to make you jump, square being your attack button and r1 being used for your weapons you upgrade to. The story is fairly entertaining with Plankton trying to steal the Krabby formula and spongebob trying to stop him. The downfall I have with this game is that you don't even get to the end of the first level and all ready you have a some what difficult boss battle with Plankton. This gets frustrating for kids. I would recommend this game to people who have kids that are fans of Spongebob otherwise avoid this game, There are more fun action platform games out there.
Fun me all you like. I still like Spongebob at my age. And hearing that a SB game was coming to the PS3 for the first time; I just knew I had to play it. But sadly, it was not as good as I hoped.
Pros: The level design and gameplay is pretty good. Even with my level of gaming, I had a time with the last area. I was soloing the game so that could been why I had a tough time at first before getting use to the wave of bad bot that pop.
Also the music is nice on the ears. Feels like I was on an island far away. And playing as Patrick and Mr. Karbs was fun and funny.
The characters design is a plus as well. To bad there was only 2 cutscenes the show them up close.
Cons: The story was poor. It was like an episode of SBSP, but lacking any depth. There was a time where I was thinking a cutscene would show after finshing 3 levels; only to face... 'gasp' more levels. It was boring and short; around 3 hr.
The few scenes they are is mostly before and after a boss fight. And there only 4 of them. Yeah 4! And one you fight twice.
The camera in-game is fixed. So you can't use the right stick to move it. It's a problem if you jumping at a certain angle or you have to run back to upgrade your gizmo.
The devices the characters use are a nice idea, but most of the time I was only using 2-3 of them.
Rent, Buy, or Avoid: I say this... if you getting this for the kids, a friend or for yourself; a good nights rent would do you fine here. As much as I like SBSP and I like supporting the show whenever I can. I don't think you should buy this game.
