Summary

A waste of good graphics

The Good

The game looks pretty damn good, the graphics are excellent, true to the animated series and very well made. The idea with the P.O.P. is pretty good, but they didn't really make full use of it, of course it's a kids' game, and as such it can't be too complicated. Music and sound effects are ok, nothing special.

The Bad

Well, it's nothing but a standard platformer, and they could have done more with the P.O.P. thingy, the whole experience feels kind of wasted on a mediocre game. Apart from the graphics there's really not that much good about this game. Licensed stuff like this is hardly ever good, or should I say hasn't been good since 1990 or so, and this is sadly no exception. Lots of wasted potential, both in regards to gameplay and controls etc.

The Bottom Line

Looks good, plays worse.
