Frogger Beyond has far surpassed the expectations that I initially had for this game. Konami did an excellent job with recreating Frogger and creating a challenging puzzle game for the GameCube. The overall quality of the game surprised me and showed me that I shouldn’t take things for granted! For a cool 30 bucks, I highly recommend this title to someone looking for a quick challenge or anyone looking for a nice retro experience. Check it out!
Das Frogger-Spielprinzip funktioniert auch in 3D recht gut, gäbe es da nicht häufiger mal arge Kameraprobleme. Die 30 Levels hingegen sind ziemlich flott durchgehüpft, und danach gibt es keinen Grund, das Spiel von vorn zu starten. So hochmotivierend ist die Spielidee nämlich auch wieder nicht. Frogger Beyond kann man sich prima aus der Videothek ausleihen (wenn es denn mal irgendwo ausliegen sollte), um es am Wochenende durchzuzocken. Aber den vollen Kaufpreis braucht man dafür wirklich nicht auf den Tisch zu legen.
Grundsätzlich ist Frogger Beyond auch nicht anders als die Vorgänger, es gibt nur von allem etwas mehr: Mehr Power-Ups, mehr Gegner, mehr Variation. Grafik und Sound sind wirklich nicht der Rede Wert, aber solche Dinge sind bei Spielen dieser Art ja eher zweitrangig. Die 30 Level sind allerdings recht schnell durchgespielt und bieten kaum Anreiz für einen weiteren Durchmarsch.
After its misstep with Frogger: The Great Quest, Konami has brought the franchise back on track with Frogger Beyond. But this move just brings the series back to square one, and it doesn't improve on the groundwork laid down by the Hasbro Interactive Frogger games. If you've already played through those, or Blitz Games' follow-up, Zapper, Frogger Beyond isn't going to wow you. But if you're new to this specific blend of fast action and simple puzzles, Frogger Beyond can offer a quick and fun experience.
"Frogger Beyond" has its strong points, but it falls short of being a great game. Still, it can be recommended to those looking for a slightly different and perhaps pure gaming experience. If you can disregard its rough spots and weather its considerable challenge, "Frogger Beyond" is like a fairly fond walk back in time.
Frogger Beyond is true to its roots, but not exactly a long-lasting game. The thrill runs short after you experience a fair amount of deaths, and this frustration is cause to consider Konami's latest addition to the series a rent-only title. Only the most die-hard Frogger fanatic will find their money well spent, and even then renting first is probably a good idea.

Frogger Beyond is true to its roots, but not exactly a long-lasting game. The thrill runs short after you experience a fair amount of deaths, and this frustration is cause to consider Konami's latest addition to the series a try-only title. Only the most diehard Frogger fanatic will find their money well spent, and even then just playing Swampy's first is probably a good idea. We're Frogger addicts from our youths, but what made that game great doesn't translate to the next-gen era too well. 3D, in this case (more so than Swampy's, it seems), actually hampers the fun of the game, for design is often the sole reason for death. Classic Frogger? Yes. Still worth the money and the time? Likely not.
I approached Frogger Beyond with an open mind and found it to be a competent update of a classic franchise... for about two levels. Alas, the game's flaws soon manifested in force and served to suck the fun right out. As such, I can't recommend Frogger Beyond for adults, and the nail-biting difficulty means I can't recommend it for kids. If you're looking for some Frogger fun, you'd be better served by one of the older $10 PlayStation releases.
