Despite the fact that this Hook doesn't look or sound quite as good as it's predecessors, it's just as fun to play. If you've played Hook before, you won't find many surprises. Newcomers, though, will be enthralled by the graphics, gameplay and challenge. Get Hook-ed!

Hook is een digitaal apenspel van de bovenste plank. Het spel vereist topsport van geest en vingertoppen. Bovendien is het moeilijk genoeg om je een tijdje bezig te houden.

Obwohl Sony Imagesoft für dieses Spiel nur ausgesprochen klassische Spielelemente verwendet hat, muß man diese Hüpferei eindeutig im Oberfeld ansiedeln. Dies liegt in erster Linie an dem ausgefuchsten Leveldesign, das einen zwar zu jeder Sekunde fordert, sich aber mit viel Übung niemals als unfair herausstellt. Auch die gelungene Optik mit den vielen farbfrohen Levels und detaillierten Sprites trägt zu dem gehobenen Spielkomfort bei. Die stimmungsvolle Musikuntermalung rundet den gelungenen technischen Rahmen ab. Eine Schelte gibt es allerdings bei der Steuerung; obwohl sich der steife Peter Banning wieder in den agilen Jüngling verwandelt hat, bewegt er sich wie ein seniler Frührenter, sprich unendlich langsam.

Hook sur Super Nintendo était un jeu assez sympa de par ses musiques, ses graphismes et sa jouabilité. La version Megadrive est à peu de chose près identique. En effet, les seules différences se situent au niveau de la bande son un peu moins classe et des graphismes plus fades.

All in all, Hook is a nice game but a little too easy. The whole thing can be played through in a little over an hour. It's too bad that they didn't give this game some fairy dust because then it would have shone a bit more, at least in comparison to the other two superior versions. If that's not a deal-breaker, then I really encourage people to try this game. Yeah, it's another platformer on the Genesis, but it's just some great fun, and you might even find yourself coming back for this one. Take some time to visit Neverland, and if you don't, then I'll find you. I can do it too! Don't believe me? Back off man, I'm a lawyer! Bangarang!
