Das überdrehte, bissig-witzige Flair seiner Unterwasserwelt lockt auch reichlich Anhänger jenseits der 20 Jahre an. Und genau diese charmant-zynische Atmosphäre hat THQ perfekt in ein neues Partyspiel verfrachtet. Egal, ob es nun um die Minispiele selbst oder die perfekt in Szene gesetzten FMV-Sequenzen geht. Alles brüllt geradezu SPONGE-BOB-SCHWAMM-KOPF! Genau wie auch beim Genreprimus Mario Party geht es hier um das Dauerzocken von Minispielen. Aber ernsthaft THQ: Gerade mal 30 der Minigames? Euer aktueller Nintendo-Rivale bringt es fast auf das Dreifache!

SpongeBob SquarePants: Lights, Camera, Pants! is a surprisingly well-made party game that successfully captures the style and humor of the popular Nickelodeon franchise. The title's wealth of colorful cinematics easily tops those in the Mario Party franchise and its removal of board movement (and emphasis on mini-games) creates a speedier party experience. Meanwhile, many of the mini-games present in the project are enjoyable, if shallow, for a variety of different reasons. The biggest oversight is closely related. The truth is that there just aren't enough minis to keep most players satisfied for an extended period of time, especially since the challenges are inherently shallow. Diehard SpongeBob fans and younger gamers will still get a kick out of what's there, and general audiences looking for a multiplayer option could do worse. But with titles like Mario Party 7 in mind, there are deeper alternatives readily available.

Spongebob Squarepants: Lights, Camera, PANTS! continues a lineage of solid Spongebob games. Parnets can rest assured with this game. As for the rest of us, unless you're a huge Spongebob fan or have a lot of beer, there are better games out there.

But of course, SpongeBob SquarePants: Lights, Camera, Pants! is universal, so anybody can enjoy it. Anybody except everybody, that is, but I'm sure kids with friends will enjoy this game to some extent. Just don't expect to let the AI make up for the lack of friends, because they don't really react very well. Easy makes them dumb, and hard turns them into frenzied generic robots that make no mistakes. Medium? Well - a blend of the two, but there is really no intelligence here. Of course, the odd SpongeBob appearance and the odd wisecrack from Mr. Krabs makes up for the otherwise abysmal tasting Krabby Patty of a game, but unless you really have an itch for a Sponge game, this probably should be avoided.

Les amateurs de Bob L'Eponge auront nécessairement un élan de sympathie pour ce party game qui sait tirer parti de la licence et lui rester fidèle dans ses cinématiques ou son esprit. Pourtant, la licence n'éclipse pas le faible nombre de jeux ou l'équilibre bancal qu'il y a entre eux : des bons à ceux dépourvus d'intérêt, des jouables aux chaotiques.

The games themselves are centred around test-of-skill-style auditions for the new Mermaid Man And Barnacle Boy movie (a favourite of SpongeBob's if you don't already know) and are, generally speaking, a varied bunch, wedded to nicely simple control setups. For our money, the farting inflatable-pants obstacle course deserves top honours, but then again, we're deeply childish. Bottom line? Unapologetically aimed at pre-teens, and about as deep as a crabby patty - this, nevertheless, packs enough mental charm to keep a quartet of gamers hooked.

The world of Spongebob is rife with plenty of videogame potential. While the story driven journeys released of this little porous sponge haven’t been the most captivating as of yet, they are all leaps and bounds ahead of this newest party game released. SpongeBob SquarePants: Lights, Camera, PANTS! is a poor use of a license, and a party game that is sure to end any get together rather quickly. This is an experience that would be hard for younger gamers to get into, and the older gaming set should steer away from as well. As a fan of the yellow one, it is a shame to see such humorous characters and story material going to waste.

Persoonlijk had ik toch wat meer verwacht van deze Spongebob titel. Deze franchise heeft het potentieel voor een geslaagde partytitel in huis maar THQ slaagt er niet in dit waar te maken. Waar ik soms uren kan nagenieten van een aflevering op de tv, ging het spel mij al snel vervelen. De kleinere fans zullen waarschijnlijk meer plezier aan deze titel beleven, alhoewel ik denk dat er betere soortgelijke spellen te vinden zijn van andere populaire (teken)films die voor meer schatergelach en plezier zullen zorgen. Deze Spongebob draait gewoon vierkant.

Spongebob Party just hasn’t got what it takes. No even half as funny as the episodes, a complete rip-off from Mario Party and ugly menus: it should all have been a lot better, and I mean a lot. It’s not the first time Mario Party gets copied, but it’s time to quit it. Mario Party has lost some of its glance, and Spongebob Party is a bowl already covered in rust because of the rain. Spongebob should be ashamed; like the time his pants ripped and he had to sing on the beach. That was funny, this is just ain’t.

All in all, it's hard to see how even the most ardent SpongeBob fan could get a lot out of this game, even with three friends and four controllers on hand. There's just not a big enough selection of games, fundamentally, and too many niggles. If it's a kids' party game you're after, you're probably better off with an EyeToy title. And if you're buying for a SpongeBob fan, consider SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom instead - it's a platformer rather than a party game, but it's a lot more fun than this.

Unfortunately, the game isn't all that much fun and it won't keep junior quiet for all that long. The mini-games are, for the most part, too long, tedious, have shoddy controls and are a complete bore. Sure, the youngest of the young will adore this no matter how bad it is, but the rest of us should just walk on by.
