+ The world is fun with updated visuals
+ Characters are a blast and each have their own style to each environment
+ It's SpongeBob.
- Multiplayer lacking alittle
- Some bugs with frustrating controls and moments
Basically if you're a fan of SpongeBob, the original game, or just looking for an excellent platformer. GET THIS. I was so excited to hear it was getting remastered, since I played and loved the original so much. So it's the nostalgia for me, but new comers should fine it good as well! With everything updated and looking fresh, you can't really complain. Don't listen to those IGN or Gamespot reviews with bad ratings. Now although I did give some negatives, it's nothing that can be fixed with an update or just getting used to after playing it for awhile. And they did keep original dialogue and music from original which is amazing, some might sound off since it's not the original voice actor from show (Mr. Krabs for example). But nothing to take stars off for. The new mode for Multiplayer is a good bonus from the original, but boring and repetitive in my opinion.
And just for $30, it's a steal. GET IT! You won't be disappointed. One of the best SpongeBob games to date.
The audio tracks, voice acting, music, sound effects, all of it is from the old game, Mr krabs still sounds horrible, they couldnt find a better re-cast for mermaidman, which yes, sadly the original voice actor died back in 2012, so they would have to find a recast, but other companies have been able to do that just fine and made it sound right
There's nothing new or quality of life in the levels, so you're stuck backtracking quite a bit for certain spatulas or socks, notably in goo lagoon there's a spatula on the end of a jumping puzzle, they could have added a trampoline there to bounce us back but they didnt, not to mention the multi-player mode they tossed in is very droll boring, they didnt make any new music or even use old music for it, everybody plays exactly the same as powers were stripped away, except for squidward and plankton who are broken for being ranged characters
And all of this begs the question, what were they doing in the time that they were making the game? Concept art, music, enemy and character designs, level designs, even the cut multi-player mode and boss was roughly drawn out and designed for them, and the reason why it was so bad in this game was BECAUSE it was cut in a unfinished way and they are unable or unskilled enough to add anything new to this game properly
There is a ton of "polish" on this game, the character and enemy models look good, a ton of "glitches" got removed, which were used in speedrunning to completely bust the game open and make it a extremely skill based 100% run, now you can bust the game open and do a 2 minute run, but they went out of their way to announce they would squash all the speed running tricks that made the game so hyped in the first place
However that "polish" only extends so far as there are a ton of bugs even past the day one patch, ive had multiple times robots carried by Patrick glitch when i try to throw them and i get hit at the same time, that broke a spatula, tikis bounce when on top of the hush tikis when they respawn after hiding, and glitch inside of other tikis because of it, multiple graphical glitches, including the shower in jellyfish fields not turning off and tikis floating in the middle of the air without any hover tikis below them, clipping glitches, checkpoints and warp points won't work right and won't open up unless you're standing literally right next to them, which has caused some annoying backtracking on the slide sections
Its a game that is trying to sell itself on the hype of the old one, the memes that the show is known for, the heart thats there isnt from the current developers, but the old developers and fans that came before, if you have the old game or any way to play it, stick to that one or buy it, graphically its aged really well, sound wise theres literally nothing that this game does any differently as it uses the exact same files, gameplay wise this games actually SLOWER as attcks have been nerfed, the pause menus are more annoying to traverse, and there's no return to bikini bottom button when you're done with a level so you have to go to a spatula in the pause menu, but don't do the first bikini bottom one as that'll take you inside spongebobs house instead of outside like the original game
I could honestly go on and on more and more about whats wrong with this game, its not a badly made game level wise, the original was fun so this one should be fun too, and it does have a nice coat of paint on it, but its just the blatantly worse version everywhere else
-Patrick has trouble stunning robots without getting hit.
-THE BUS TO SWITCH CHARACTERS OR CHANGE LEVELS DOESN’T COME ANYMORE. I was super disappointed with that one.
-The dialogue doesn’t match with the character’s movements.
-It is really hard to tell which parts are in and out of bounds at times. The colors and overall new layout throw me off.
And I’m only on Jellyfish Fields so far. I’m honestly not ready to see how many more glitches are in this game. They really need to fix it. Otherwise, pure nostalgia. Also love how they added some memes in there too.
