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.
