Overall, the gameplay is stale and the presentation is below average. Yet, there are some fun moments to be found in the game (and the fleshing of Griffin’s character is neat) but this mostly serves to remind of how much potential a Jumper game had. If you’re a fan of the movie, a rental may be in order but as it stands, it’s hard to recommend the game as a purchase to even the most devout movie fans.

IGN (4.9 out of 10) (49%)

Developer Redtribe (Looney Tunes: ACME Arsenal) makes no mention of Jumper: Griffin's Story on its official website. A few minutes of quality time with the game will reveal why. This is the epitomy of a movie tie-in hack job. Low production values, monotonous gameplay, and lackluster visuals make this a story you can jump past. There is some fun to be had with the game's combat, but this will get old quickly for all but the most hardcore Jumper Super Fans. If that's you, then you must be looking forward to the Meet the Spartans game.

A mesma história se repete, a tal maldição dos jogos licenciados: com a pressa de fazer algo para coincidir com o lançamento do filme nos cinemas, testemunhamos um verdadeiro conjunto de defeitos e idéias recicladas. "Jumper: Griffin's Story" é fraco tanto como jogo quanto como complemento para o filme, em ambas as versÔes, ainda que a do Xbox 360 seja levemente superior, simplesmente por ter o sistema de luta um pouco mais robusto e visuais mais consistentes.

Review Busters, The (4 out of 10) (40%)

This is why movie based games get a bad name. The game does not feel or play like a next gen game should. I saw the movie (don’t ask why) and at no time during this game did I feel like it tied up any loose ends. There is no fun factor in this game at all; the best part is whenever you shut the game off. This isn’t the worst game out there, but it definitely should not be added to your collection anytime soon.

Because of its simplistic game play, unattractive graphics and technical glitches, Jumper: Griffin's Story should be skipped at your local game store — even for fans of the film.

Cheat Code Central (1.8 out of 5) (36%)

I really can't recommend this game to anyone. With its incredibly short play time, lack of any reason to play through more than once, horrific camera, and just overall feeling of being rushed to the market, Jumper: Griffin's Story is unlikely to make anyone glad for the experience. Perhaps this game could have been slightly better if it had been delayed and released when Jumper eventually got released on DVD. In any event, the only possible reason anyone should play this game is for some super easy achievement points and even then, only if you are desperate.

MS Xbox World (3.5 out of 10) (35%)

Jumper is a typical movie tie in game, in that it follows the tried and trusted formula of being completely rubbish, something we all come to expect. Brash have done a terrible job at bringing the film to the home, and I really do wonder if they actually cared when making the game. There's no innovation and everything is just dull, repetitive and devoid of any redeeming features. Would I recommend buying this game? Hell no, but I would recommend a rental if you are an achievement hunter as the easy 1000 points should be a nice boost to your score. Once done, you can return the game and carry on playing proper more challenging games.

GameZone (3.5 out of 10) (35%)

If your gamer score is important to you, then Jumper is the game for you as it hands them out like candy on Halloween night. Players should be able to unlock almost all the achievement points after one run through with the game. Outside of that, the other bright spot about Jumper is that it’s a short rollercoaster ride that you’ll be glad to get off of. Lasting only a few hours, it shouldn’t take too long to complete.

Planet Xbox 360 (3.4 out of 10) (34%)

As mentioned straightaway, Jumper's redeeming quality is its overwhelmingly easy Achievement Points. Be warned, however, this is no Avatar; you will have to play through the game to get all of them, perhaps even twice. Those looking for a quick 250 will only have to play through the first half-hour of the game, as each achievement is worth 50 points; with achievements rewarded for doing things as easy as killing enemies from each side. Most will not be able to stomach this pathetic game even through one playthrough. Those that earn the full thousand should earn a badge certifying them an official 'Achievement Whore'. Jumper: Griffin's Story drags movie-themed games to a new low. Piss-poor adaptations of movies is nothing new, but having the experience not even last as long as the film itself certainly is.

To be honest I was hoping it could be fun, despite knowing in my heart it wouldn't be. This is simply one of the worst experiences I've had with a game on the 360. Awful camera angles completely ruin the interesting battle system, almost non-existent and overall poor sound effects make it better played on mute and the graphics simply confuse me as to what decade it is. I'm fairly certain I could pay some high schoolers to make a better game than this.

GamesRadar (2 out of 10) (20%)

All signs point to Jumper: Griffin's Story being a by-the-numbers, quickly assembled cash-in, but selecting poor, early-gen original Xbox brawlers as the template was a grave mistake. Those games at least made us chuckle; Jumper only makes us wince.

A peine sorti, Jumper se tĂ©lĂ©porte parmi les jeux Ă  licence sans aucun intĂ©rĂȘt, mĂȘme si sa rĂ©alisation absolument catastrophique devrait lui assurer une certaine renommĂ©e dans le domaine.

Die Entwickler haben hingegen auf ganz andere Dinge wie zeitgemĂ€ĂŸe Optik, spielerische Abwechslung und jegliche QualitĂ€tssicherung verzichtet. Auch eine vernĂŒnftig eingebettete Story sucht ihr vergebens: Wer die Kino- bzw. Buchvorlage nicht kennt, hat keine Ahnung, was zwischen den hektisch drögen KĂ€mpfen ĂŒberhaupt versucht wird zu erzĂ€hlen. Da das ganze Trauerspiel nach zwei, drei Stunden aber ohnehin vorbei ist, spielt das wohl auch schon keine Rolle mehr. Lasst bloß die Finger von diesem dreisten StĂŒck SoftwaremĂŒll, das selbst abgehĂ€rtete Trash-Sammler dauerhaft verstören kann!

To all the truck drivers out there who are transporting copies of Jumper: Griffin's Story to retail, please redirect your shipments to Alamogordo, New Mexico. You'll know you are in the right location when you see thousands of E.T. cartridges moving out of the way to make room for you shipment.

Jumper: Griffin's Story feels like a slapdash rush job, cobbled together in a few months to trick kids who don't know any better out of squandering their allowance. (Even the people responsible don't seem too proud of it: Neither developer associated with the project lists it on their company's respective websites.) The visuals aren't just crude, they're abysmal -- plenty of PlayStation 2 games offer graphics that outclass what's on display here. And in terms of pure content, this game offers so unbelievably little -- you can trudge through the whole thing in roughly two hours -- that it's nearly incomprehensible that this sits on the same shelf (with the same asking price, no less) as Devil May Cry 4. Yes, you can mine a treasure trove of Xbox Live achievement points from Jumper in no time flat, but come on...you can assuredly find some better way to waste your time, right?

Herzlichen GlĂŒckwunsch! Ihr habt soeben die schlechteste Filmverwurstung aller Zeiten kennengelernt. Es mag ja viele Filme geben, denen unterdurchschnittliche Spiele spendiert wurden, aber so etwas hat die Welt noch nicht gesehen. Bei diesem Spiel stimmt einfach ĂŒberhaupt nichts. Weder die hakelige Steuerung, noch die miese Grafik oder die anspruchslose KI können irgendjemanden hinter dem Ofen hervorlocken. Eher ist man dazu geneigt, seinen Kopf in den Ofen zu stecken, um sĂ€mtliche Sinne vor Jumper: Griffin`s Story zu schĂŒtzen. Langweilig, langatmig, unfertig – dieses Spiel ist euer Geld nicht wert!

Well yet again I've managed to yammer on for ages about a game barely worth your or my time, so let’s put us all out of our misery; this is the WORST 360 game I've played - by some distance. One day in the future I can imagine my grandchildren asking me "Grandiddly, did you fight in the war against terrorism?"...and I'll say "no kids, I played Jumper, it was a much tougher assignment". Jumper should have its own category, giving this one out of ten feels like I'm being too generous, and may be misleading you. AVOID.

There are simply no redeeming features to justify recommending Griffin's Story, even for people who are inexplicably fans of the movie. If you were on a quest to find a more pointless way to waste ninety minutes of your life than to watch Jumper, then you'd need look no further.
