As it stands, SpongeBob SquarePants: Creature from the Krusty Krab won’t hold the attention of older games for very long. Younger gamers will probably be entertained by the loopy level designs and crazy objectives.
Game Freaks 365 (Oct, 2006)
Regardless of the more linear nature of this game compared to Battle for Bikini Bottom, the platforming in this game is fun, and it is a fairly lengthy game. And, in addition to the main game, you can freely play any of the mini-games that can be found throughout the game, or you can go back to particular sections of levels, probably to look for character icons that you missed. Finding these has some effect on the ending, although, having only played through the game once, I don’t know exactly what effect. All of this adds up to a game that is more than good enough and long enough to be worth a look to the diehard SpongeBob fan at the very least, and probably to the general fan of platformers as well.

SpongeBob SquarePants: Creature from the Krusty Krab isn't a bad attempt at a SpongeBob title, but doesn't live up to past games like The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. Bad writing, average graphics, poor sound and gameplay with seemingly no direction and little resemblance to the Bikini Bottom world combine to bog down a really good storyline concept and what could have been a good platform adventure game, but instead feels like sections of platform adventure jumbled with poor flying and racing. This comes recommended for the young Sponge-heads, but if you're an older fan of the show then don't let this franchise squeeze the extra money out of you.

While this isn’t a bad game, it isn’t a good game, either. The designers went to some effort to make things different, but the end effect doesn’t work. Parents are better off with some other game for young children, like Cars or Barnyard.

Un jeu simpliste mais agréable qui fera plaisir aux fans de Bob et de sa clique. Loin de renouveler le genre, Blitz Games tire sans trop de risques un jeu amusant de la célèbre licence de Nickelodeon. Sans aucun doute la meilleure adaptation à ce jour des aventures de Bob l'éponge.

Eigentlich hätte Die Kreatur aus der Krossen Krabbe durchaus das Zeug zu einem ordentlichen Kinderspiel mit Schwammkopfbonus gehabt: Der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist ziemlich harmlos, der Preis fair, der Inhalt durchaus abwechslungsreich und die Soundkulisse weiß zu gefallen. Zumindest bis der Held des Spiels den Mund aufmacht. [...] und auch die Spielwelt hat nicht viel mit dem aus dem Fernsehen bekannten Bikini Bottom gemein. Es verschlägt einen nicht einmal in die Titel gebende Krosse Krabbe und Schlüsselcharaktere wie Thaddäus, Sandy oder Mr. Krabs kommen erst gar nicht vor. Auch der Humor kann nicht annähernd mit dem Original mithalten. Hinzu kommt, dass das auf den ersten Blick zumindest abwechslungsreiche, auf dem Wii aber teils recht umständliche Gameplay nur aus zusammengeschusterten Spielelementen der Videospielurzeit besteht, Wege und Lösungen selbst für Kids viel zu stark vorgegeben werden und nach ein paar Stunden bereits der Abspann über die Mattscheibe flimmert.
