    How DSI steals your money.

    That's what this SHOULD be called.

    Am I supposed to catch your drift or something, Zartan? Because I don't. I'm strange.

    Oh noes!

    It's a 8mb platformer. Oh, how fun.

    Hmm.. This will probably sell for $30 retail.

    Using my calculator, each dollar you spend on this game is worth 266kilobytes of coding.

    The images he linked to don't work. I assume they were meant to be screen shots.

    Nope, actually this is a revolutionary way of disproving hopes by sending the name of the ones who made the game... like... umm, a videogame based movie. You hope it won't suck and i send a picture of Uwe Boll...

    Based on the artwork, I'd say this is based either on the cartoon or the original book (or both). Based on the logo, I'd say this seems to be a cheap cash-in on the mediocre 2000 movie. Seriously, seven years is a bit long to wait for such a cash-in.

    Unfortunately, a bunch of parents will get this game for their kids based on their own fond memories of the original book and cartoon, and DSI games will stay in business. [​IMG]

    Incorrect. It's not a cash in on the 2000 movie (as it has nothing to do with Jim Carrey). It's coming out to celebrate the book's 50th anniversary and uses graphics that would resemble the old cartoon movie, rather then the live action version.

    Has anyone actually tried this game? Does it suck as bad as I think it would?

    It's ok. It has a good concept, but isn't as fun as it could be.

    Graphics are the definite high point of the game.
