Frogger erblickte erstmals im Juni 1981 das Tageslicht der Videospielgeschichte. Das erste Arcadespiel rund um den hüpfenden Frosch wurde seinerzeit von Konami entwickelt und von dem heutigen Videospiele-Riesen Sega produziert. Nach diversen Spielhallen-Versionen unternahm man auch erste Gehversuche auf heimischen Konsolen, wie dem damals beliebten Atari 2600.

Diversão para todos, o estilo casual de "Frogger" nunca sai de moda. Existe uma infinidade de clones gratuitos na internet, mas não dá negar o charme de jogar o original de um ícone da história dos games tal qual era a 25 anos atrás. Para alguns, as pequenas mudanças - mesmo as modalidades multijogador - renderão poucas tardes de entretenimento, mas, mesmo para esse grupo, certamente elas serão genuínas. Enfim, vale a pena pagar o sapo.

Costanza's favorite coin-op is brought to the virtual arcade with both the original and "enhanced" graphics. The gameplay is still fun and it controls solidly with the 360 controller, but the online modes suffer from quite a bit of lag.

Video Game Talk
Frogger is guaranteed to produce mixed reactions ranging from anger over its lower quality to insistence that Frogger is beyond alteration. Personally, I enjoy Frogger for reasons beyond the quality of the title. It's the perfect game for teaching kids the beauty of Live Arcade due to the obvious simplicity of the title or becoming a kid again for that matter. Is the hippity hopper worth shelling out 400 points from that Marketplace account? People who love the classic shouldn't hesitate, nor should Gamerscore junkies who are looking for a quick fix. Everyone else should try out the demo before laying out the Live currency.

Digital Press - Classic Video Games
For the right price of 400 MS Points, it's hard not to purchase Frogger. After all, it's Frogger. If the online features ran properly, it would be a must have. As it is, don't expect much from the multi-player (especially since local multi-player isn't split screen) and just enjoy the classic as it's meant to be played.

Frogger is a classic arcade game, originally released to arcades in 1981. The premise is simple. You, as a frog, must hop across a busy road and then hop across a log-and-turtle-filled river to get to a home base at the top of the screen. Getting hit by cars, jumping into the water, and getting eaten by otters or snakes are the sorts of things you want to try to avoid. Now, that arcade classic is available on the Xbox 360. It's a mostly faithful emulation of the arcade original with a few interesting updates that should please fans of the series.

Game Chronicles
I suppose the greatest asset to owning the classic games that have become available on XBLA is not only their value for nostalgia buffs, but also their appeal. These games are simple to learn, but difficult to master. While the idea of moving a pixelated frog from one side of the screen to the other might sound like child’s play, it’s not as easy as it seems.

If you like Frogger, this is a solid version. Recommended.

For anyone still harboring what I’d suppose is an unhealthy measure of faith in the Frogger franchise, throwing several hundred gamer points at the problem with this XBLA adaptation of the renowned 25+ year old series probably wouldn’t be the worst idea. After all, at its core is one of the greatest arcade games ever. Just remember that there’s nothing else waiting for you and that although you can finally get online with a Frogger title, you’ll be more alone there than you would be playing single-player. It’s a shame that the new Xbox Live gameplay variants weren’t adapted for local play and that the enhanced version isn’t quite as reliable as the original. If anything, Frogger remains cheap over XBLA and acts as a good enough distraction from all of today’s ultra-serious war games.

IGN
In the end, Digital Eclipse did a perfunctory job with Frogger. All of the little additions make it a nice, friendly arcade game for the casual gamer, or conversely for the obsessed hardcore, old-school perfectionist. It might be worth your while to earn some cheap, but not necessarily easy, Achievement points, and it is always easy to pick up and play for a little while. It's also only $5.

XBox Evolved
Those of you that haven’t played to many compilation packages, or have never seen parodies of Frogger on television, Frogger is a pretty simply game. You are a little frog, running down a traffic filled road, across logs with creatures trying to thwart you, and all you have to do is get to the other side. It sounds simple, but as you get further into the game, everything speeds up of course. The arcade classic from Konami comes to us for only five bucks, and it is a interesting time killer.

Frogger's been around for longer than you think. The original arcade game was introduced in 1981 under release by Sega, and the game's grown into a phenomenon ever since, even appearing on an episode of Seinfeld (the one where George tries to keep his high score intact forever by purchasing the machine and moving it across the street while it's plugged in). There's something simple about its appeal that makes it playable, even with today's audiences. That's why it's an ideal pick for the Xbox Live Arcade service, and why Konami's gone ahead and given us a "modernized" version of it.

Game Over Online
With the ability to switch into classic arcade mode, Frogger tries to appeal to the purists who enjoy collecting coin-op arcades. Unless you spend a lot of time exclusively playing Xbox Live Arcade titles, though, it’s probably not worth picking up the full game as you might find you’ve seen and done everything with the trial itself.

Frogger fits the casual gamer model that Microsoft is trying to target. It’s one of those, “Hey, I remember that from when I was your age!” kind of games. I enjoy playing it in short bursts. Short because if I try to play more than a few rounds I get increasingly annoyed by the bad hit detection and unresponsive controls. It’s defiantly a try before you buy title.
