GameFan Magazine (Nov, 1994)
I remember when farting in a game was strictly prohibited...not only does BM fart, he grunts 'em out! FART! If that's not enough, he flicks boogs! You'd think, with that as a selling point, they wouldn't bother to make a great game, but Interplay has made a 24-meg gnarler. Great voice, superior animation...I like it!
If you're looking for a fun platform game with some unique gameplay, try this one on for size. And don't tell me I'm not an expert on boogers. Not only have I picked my own nose, but I've picked other people's noses as well.
GamePro (US) (Nov, 1994)
In a game that's guaranteed to unnerve the faint at hear, Interplay has created a gross platform game and character that we pick to win by a nose.
Mean Machines (Dec, 1994)
Snot that funny, but it's a good little platformer. This is one bogey that's well above par.
Sega Force (Oct 19, 1994)
Musiken till snorlobban är helt OK, faktiskt, speciellt på bonusbanorna där den övergår i en sorts skum sambatakt. Precis som om det skulle passa in! Bossarna är precis så svåra att man får kämpa lite och lyckas först när man knäckt mönstret. Det är ungefär som att banta bort 10 kilo på ett år och belöna sig med bullar och godis i en vecka. Köp detta spel och fråga inte varför!
Power Unlimited (Feb, 1995)
Uit de handleiding en de intro is niet echt op te maken waar het spel heen gaat en hoeveel levels het heeft. Ik her er ongeveer 12 uitgespeeld, totdat ik bij eindbaas Flyboy kwam. Moeilijk is Boogerman zeker niet, maar wel uitgebreid. Levels zijn groot en er zijn meerdere mogelijkheden om het uit te spelen (zoals bijvoorbeeld het vinden van de WC bonuslevels). Tof spel!

Trotz Earthworm Jim und Kid Clown aus Crazy Chase ist Boogerman mein absolutes Lieblingssprite. Es sieht einfach genial aus, wenn er sich hinhockt und mit aller Kraft einen Megafurz rauspreßt. Die Grazie, mit der er springt, erinnert eher an eine Ballerina als an einen versifften Superhelden. Die vielen abgefahrenen Ideen im Spiel machen Boogerman zu etwas ganz Besonderem: ein Klosett als Zugang zum Bonus-Level, Toilettensauger als Sammelobjekt für Extra-Leben, ein Hähnchen als Frisbee geworfen vom ersten Endgegner. Wenn er vom Killerfurz angetrieben durch die Lüfte schwebt, verzerrt sich sein Gesicht entzückt. Die Hintergrundgrafik ist eher durchschnittlich, der Sound mit digitalisierten Rülpsern und Fürzen paßt ganz gut zum Spiel. Boogerman gehört in jede Spielesammlung, denn es ist nicht nur das fertigste Mega-Drive-Modul aller Zeiten, es macht auch einen Heidenspaß.

Once you reach the later levels, Boogerman becomes a fairly easy cart - I can beat it with no passwords while using a few lives only. I'm still compelled to play it time and time again, using particular passwords to replay my favorite levels. Boogerman is not the easiest game to find, but be sure to pick it up (no pun intended) if you spot a copy. The techniques are so well put together that even platform gamers with little patience for Boogerman 's peculiar kind of low-brow humor will enjoy its challenges. This underrated cart is one of the most playable platform games around.

Le jeu surprend par son humour scatophile que l’on n'attendait pas dans un jeu vidéo mais il ne se limite pas à cela. Passé le moment de rigolade fasse aux élucubrations sonores de Boogerman, le titre révèle un univers visuel accrocheur et s’avère être un bon petit jeu de plates-formes dont la prise en main facile se corse au fil des heures. Bien qu’amusant au début, certains joueurs pourront se lasser car le titre est légèrement répétitif. Un jeu sans prétention qui distrait et c’est tout ce qu’on lui demande.
RetroGame Man (Mar 18, 2017)
Overall, Boogerman is a fun 2D platformer. While the stages are a bit boring, the gameplay is good and the animation and graphics are fantastic, and more than make up for the lack lustre level design.
Still, those who feel they can tolerate the action will no doubt enjoy this game. Children will especially find this game hysterical--just make sure they don't try to emulate Boogerman's "skills." Now that would be truly disgusting!
Oh, the times they are a changing! Never have I imagined a video game that would employ the use of farts, belches and boogers as a form of attack. I'll give it points for originality and humor value. The animations will crack you up and gross you out. I'm not even sure if that's such a good idea. Anyway, the game as a whole is okay, but it just lacked something. It seemed like just another action game.
Mega Fun (Dec, 1994)
er eigentliche Spielablauf ist hingegen stinknormale Jump‘n Run-Kost, wobei wir schon beim größten Schwachpunkt dieses unappetitlichen Jump‘n Runs angelangt sind: Nur anfangs lacht man nämlich kräftig über die ungewöhnlichen Angriffsmethoden des Helden, die grafisch äußerst witzig in Szene gesetzt wurden, schon bald entpuppt sich das Game jedoch als spielerisch recht bieder, da das Leveldesign kaum Abwechslung und erfrischende Ideen bietet. Außerdem wird es stellenweise recht unübersichtlich und man ist gezwungen, Blindsprünge zu riskieren.
IGN (Dec 01, 2008)
Boogerman was a fine idea for a mid-'90s video game superhero, as in that era you needed to do whatever you could to get your game to stand out from the crowd -- the platforming genre was incredibly popular, and it was definitely difficult to distance your product from your competitors'. But his gross-out theme just isn't strong enough to stay interesting beyond that first few minutes, as the novelty of seeing a hero be so nasty wears out quickly when you realize the gameplay is just as standard as any other cookie-cutter platformer from that same 16-bit age. Boogerman isn't a bad game, and if you're finding yourself captivated by the concept for whatever reason, it's not the worst way to spend 800 Wii Points. But I'd recommend you save that eight bucks for a better adventure -- maybe Interplay's own Earthworm Jim, or Earthworm Jim 2, which is also coming soon to the Virtual Console.
Game Players (Dec, 1994)
Did I 'dig' Boogerman? Well, it's an average side-scroller starring a disgusting character. The game's level/boss, level/boss formula is a bit tired and repetitive. Like boogers - seen one, seen 'em all.
Play Time (Jan, 1995)
Anfangs lacht man nach über die köstlichen Animationen des Anti-Helden, doch nach einer Weile macht sich immer mehr das eintönige Leveldesign bemerkbar, das auch in grafischer Hinsicht nur wenig Abwechslung bietet.
The Video Game Critic (Jul 06, 2000)
Boogerman is actually a respectable platform action game, but let's face it -- with a name like Boogerman, who's going to take it seriously? Controls include a jump button, a mucus button, and a gas button. I think you can see where this is going. The whole gimmick behind Boogerman is the ability to make the goofy-looking hero burp, fart, flick boogers, and hock loogies. You can even fly using your ass as a jetpack! Please kids, don't try this at home! I have to admit Boogerman is very well animated and his moves will crack you up. The game itself is your standard platform action fare, with enemies and backgrounds that are much less interesting than the main character. This game has some novelty value, but not a whole lot more.
