Description official descriptions

Earthworm Jim gets squashed by a cow, leaving him dazed and confused. In the aftermath, his marbles go missing, so he must travel into his brain to find them and put everything right again. The gameplay is similar to that of the previous titles but takes place in a 3D environment.

Fun for about 20 minutes

The Good
The ridiculous story and game elements. The story, characters, and equipment are funny and quite random.

It's very simple to learn to play.

Considering the age of the game, its graphics held up reasonably well.

The Bad
The point-of-view camera is very bad, you need to zoom out all the way just to avoid running into walls.

The repetition within many of the levels. Go to a room, press a button, walk around to a new room, press a button, go back to first room, etc. Its very linear and very boring.

Except for the kitsch, the level design is completely lacking in imagination.

It changes quickly from extremely easy to damn near impossible without a gradual increase in difficultly, making some levels extremely irritating.



The Bottom Line
It's fun to see all the ludicrous bits of Earthworm Jim in a 3D world, it had a lot of potential.

Overall the game is below average. The level design is mediocre and at times infuriating. I do not recommend this game.
