A hard game that's not worth the buy

The Good
The graphics were good, they almost looked 3-D in places. When the characters say thing like "Watch out!" "Ow!" "Take that!" "You don't want to be in the way when my laser goes off!" and "Here it goes!" it sound so real. The music is pretty good, too. it's fun for a while.

The Bad
Okay, so it's a fun game for young children to rent. But who really wants to buy it? It's incredibly challenging, as a kid it'll be a miracle if you get past the fifth level, let alone the fifteenth. When you die you have to start over from the first level. Only an extremely hardcore games will be able to beat the entire game without cheating but hardcore gamer's won't want to play this game. Not to brag, but I consider myself a good SNES player and I can't get passed level 6 without cheating, and the last two levels of the game are incredibly hard even when you use the cheat which makes you invincible (I've never beaten the last level). You only get to play as Woody and he only has one attack. Woody saying "Watch out!" gets really annoying after a few minutes, too.

The Bottom Line
A great game to rent or give to a kid if you want him to shut up, tell him you'll give him 10 bucks if he beats the game without cheats or something. But don't buy it.

A hard game for a kid game

The Good
The graphics are good like Donkey Kong Country even though game looks like it. The music are decent than the SNES version like other people say. It follows the movie well and the levels are different so it's not the same thing for Objective-based.

The Bad
The game itself is VERY HARD for a kid even a older gamer. No passwords except the Europe version. There is collision detection in some levels, the colors are not as rich as the SNES version but has some extra levels present. It's hard to find stars just for extra lives or continues to keep track. But, you won't get an ending for all that trouble.

The Bottom Line
This Disney game is decent for a challenge for older people. Although, the game can be fuss for younger players who like the movie. It's a game that can be worth buying for dollar.

Great!

The Good
When this game came out it seemed like it would be another movie based clone of another game BUT this game actually is quite good. For the SNES these graphics were fantastic, the sprites were all full 3-D and the backgrounds were fantastically animated. This game is your basic platformer with the occasional driving/shooting level. This is one of the few good Toy Story games.

The Bad
NO BUZZ!!!! You could only be Woody. The game is on the password system which by 1995 was just stupid.

The Bottom Line
Surprisingly good game. I recommend you try it.
