Description official descriptions

The Futurama series, winner of a 2002 Emmy Award for Best Animated Program, has been recreated on gaming consoles. The game has been developed in close cooperation with the people behind the TV series and is presented as a 3D platform game with an authentic cartoonish look. All famous characters make an appearance and the story is guided with animations and original advertisements with the look and feel of the TV series.

Mom has bought Planet Express Deliveries from Professor Farnsworth and has gained control over planet Earth. It's up to the player's crew (Fry, Leela, Dr. Zoidberg, Bender, ...) to stop her evil plans.

An easy kill for any gamer.

The Good
I liked that it was fun, and easy to beat. Various puzzles and game types kept it interesting throughout. Being down with the Futurama humor is a plus. It was a pretty good game overall; it made me laugh and had some entertaining puzzles that fell prey to my gamer skillz.

The Bad
Cell shaded graphics weren't too bad, but they could have done better if they tried harder. It has that 3-D control issue as well.

The Bottom Line
If you like Futurama and games, then you'll like this.
