Summary

The best of the console-wannabe platformers for the PC.

The Good

Wow, I didn't think I'd ever see a PC game with such a speedy console feel. This would be right at home on the Super Nintendo or Genesis.

The Bad

The main character is so large, and the view around him is so small, that the game tends to play itself. The features are a conglomeration of bits from other platform games featuring animals with attitude. If you've played through Sonic the Hedgehod, you'll find yourself saying "Hey! I've seen this before!"

The Bottom Line

If you don't have access to a Genesis, then this is your best bet for a standard platformer on the PC.
