I bought this game for my four-year-old son, who had nothing to play on our XBox 360. This game is perfect for his age group and a little older. He enjoys being the characters and seeing the familiar surroundings from the show. The moves are easy enough for him to handle, but there are still elements of the game that require a little help from mom or dad. All in all, we enjoy to play this as a family. My son really likes it, because it is at his skill level. It is easy for little ones to go from board to board and the "missions" are easy to understand and execute. There is really no way for the characters to "die," which is nice for little ones who get easily frustrated. The characters have a few chances to reduce their life and then when they do "die," they simply wake up at the nearest checkpoint, so you can continue what you were doing. You also have to collect "shiny objects" which are everywhere in the game and are super easy to collect.
For a preschool age child, I would highly recommend this game. The characters and surroundings are familiar to the kids and this game has a real ease of use.
The only con I would list about this game, is that it may be a too easy for adults. My husband and I play it with our son and with our help, the game is almost completely beaten and we have only had it for about a month. If you are buying this for an adult, it may be too easy. The tasks are simple and are fully explained, so there isn't much to do except carry it all out. I would recommend it for the preschool and grade school age child. It is fun for parents too, but not as challenging as an "adult" game.
This game is one of my kids favorite games. In fact they played it so much when the old game got scratched I looked every where until I could find it again. They have been happily playing it ever since we got it again.
The older boy enjoys seeing how many spatula's he can get and looking for hidden socks and even the younger boy (3 1/2) is getting pretty good at the game.
The game is a little violent, the youngest now thinks it's OK to kill robots and is having to learn that hitting is only for the game not something we do to others, but they love the Spongebob characters.
this is a fantastic example of when tie ins go RIGHT.
batman arkham asylum.
spongebob squarepants; battle for bakini bottom
spongebob squarepants the movie game
all are exxelent examples of fun tie ins. i highly reccomened this (as all the other spongebob games admitadly SUCK)
satisfying gameplay, incredible level design (seriously. shiggy myamoto must have worked on this thing. i love the levels!) all the standard charicters are there (as required by tie in law) the humor is there. it certianly loves exploring itself.
wanna go snowboarding on a shell?
want to blow the smitherines out of entertaining enimies? right behind ya!
want to play carnival games and search ACRES of gameplay for little collectibles (more fun then it sounds) nothing is holding ya back!
i wont spoil anything but the endboss is hilariusly awesome.
all three playable charicters (spongebob patrick and sandy) all handle vastly different and each are incredibly fun to tool around with.
i reccomend this game on all levels.
sure its only slightly older then HL2 but we're still playing that one aint we?
you CANNOT go wrong with this, go enjoy :)
(this was written by one heck of a hardcore gamer who despises tie ins. that is how awesome this game is)
This game is wonderful. It is full of imagination and suspense. There is also counting and colors to learn for those who are younger or just for those who just love to pick out their favorite colors. I also love the fact that it is full of the real life stuff of love and orneriness. This game is full of problem solving skills and when not acomplished you get to try and try until you get it right. How wonderful is that!!! Even the defeats are made funny. By defeats what comes to mind is the big hand. My grandchildren just thinks that is so funny. I think kids learn cognitive skills and what a friend is.
Does it sound like I love this game? Yes, I do and I'm just a grandma of 10 great grandchildren who loves to watch them play this game. Thank you, Betty
This is a great game my three year old absoulutly loves it. It was a little tough for him at first, but after a couple of days he knew it like the back of his hand. Get this game it is FUN!!!!
The game is great, the graphics are awesome just like watching the show itself, and its easy for small children, bought the game for my 5 year old he really enjoys playing it.
I bought this for my 5 year old son and he LOVES it! My son says he loves it because you can go through different doors but in order to go through the doors, you have to get enough golden spatulas. (he says it's great)!! My 9 year old daughter says that "it's fun but does not hold her interest as long as some of their other games." They both like the fact that you can be different characters. Although they are different ages, they both enjoy playing it together. FINALLY, something they agree on!
Right after buying my Xbox 360, this was the second game I bought. When I use to own it on my PS2, I was always addicted. It is funny and is not only for children, despite what you may think. I would highly suggest this for any girl wanting something relaxing to do, but will not bore you.
I purchased the game a couple of months ago. The game itself is similar to the cartoon. Spongebob need to complete various missions and safe one of the characters from the cartoon. It has the option of being spongebob or Patrick and Sandy. Highly recommend this game for children.
This game is a great game, especially for kids! I have played this game (I am 11) and it is really fun. I would recomend this game to any kid who likes video games. If you get this game, and you like it, you should try the Spongebob squarepants Movie game!
