Die Ähnlichkeit zu Sonic steht wohl unter dem Motto "Gut gekalbt ist halb verkauft". Wenn ein Spiel aber so viel Spaß macht, kann man eigentlich gar nicht böse sein und höchstens den Hitstern vorenthalten.

Overall, I really liked this game. There's much to do here and a lot exploring to be done. There are also plenty of secrets to be found. This is not a game that you'll play out in a day or two. Give it a week or maybe three to find and collect everything that's available. Operation Starfish is easy to find and is pretty cheap, so if you've got nothing to do grab a copy and have fun with the famous fish spy.

James Pond 3 vermengt Mario-Anleihen an allen Ecken und Enden zu einem wenig eigenständigen Allerlei. Doch auch hier gilt: Gut kopiert ist halb gewonnen. Originelle, große Endgegner und ein enormer Umfang versöhnen den Kritiker. Doch sollte nicht unerwähnt bleiben, daß die heikle Steuerung den Schwierigkeitsgrad unelegant in die Höhe treibt.
