Avec un personnage plus maniable que dans les versions Super Nintendo et Mega CD (!), Hook est une vraie réussite. Vous voulez du dépaysement ? Vous désirez traverser des mondes féeriques ? Alors ce jeu est fait pour vous ! Bien sûr, techniquement il ne vaut pas un Mickey 2, qui est un véritable modèle du genre, mais il est largement dans la moyenne. Voire au dessus. C'est en tout cas une très bonne cartouche, pour ne pas oublier que l'enfance ne meurt jamais tout à fait.

Portable Review
I’ve said it more times than I’d care to remember: bare-bones platformers generally lack in the replay department, and Hook follows this rule by the letter. Once the first playthrough’s done with, this game will definitely be shelved, if not sold. Down the line though, there may be a chance that you would want to revisit it - a very slim chance, but a chance nonetheless.

There really isn't much to say about this thing. The characters really do look sad, the music could have been actually composed, rather than simply writing dots on a music scale with your eyes closed, as I believe this score was, and the character's attacks could have actually come within a range that would allow you to hit the enemies! Total waste of time, Robin Williams or no...well, let us not forget the horrendous SNES version of Toys. There, I hope you won't be able to sleep tonight too!
