Summary

Surprisingly fun.

The Good

This game is supposedly based off the GEX 3 engine, and it serves the game well. It's a fun little platformer that spans about 20 levels with a nice plot, decent graphics, and solid music and sound. The voice acting is pretty good too, especially since they got an Eric Idle soundalike to do the parrot. The levels are nice and lengthy, and the bosses are challenging enough. Basically, an above-average Disney platformer.

The Bad

The graphics are occasionally iffy. For a game that came so late in the PlayStation's life, this looks like it was developed around 1997. The graphics drop out and wobble around, and even though there's no pop-up, there's lots of layering problems (i.e. if Domino is standing behind a wall, the game always puts him in front of everything, so it looks like he's in front of it.) The camera is also annoying. Instead of using the unused right analog stick to control the camera, they made you rotate it with the R1 and L1 buttons. This isn't too bad until you realize that you can't look up or down, and you therefore have to make a lot of jumps blindly.

The Bottom Line

This is a game that you really wouldn't expect to be enjoyable, but give it a try. You could finish it off a rental, but I recommend buying it. That way, if you're in the mood for some light platforming, you're good to go.
