    I like the "As seen on TV" logo, but something tells me this game probably isn't that good.

    That is because its based on a TV show?

    Game is just the usual minigame borefest. Amazingly I think I read here that some people liked it, but personally there are much better games to play.

    Sadly, the only good thing going for it is that it's based on Wallace and Gromit (same art style, there was a sheep called Shaun in "A Close Shave"). Unfortunately, games based on outside media have never been good ever (which is pretty much a rule for ANY media be it books, movies, games), despite their threatening proliferation (binging and purging has increased 232% since the conception of Spongebob).

    Probably the biggest indicator that the game blows, and this blows my mind that people routinely can't see this, is the "As Seen on TV" label. "As Seen on TV" has NEVER been on anything that wasn't gimmicky infomercial CRAP. SMART people realize that stamping "As Seen on TV" on something actually decreases that product's value. Don't do it.

    In this case I think the As Seen on TV label was supposed to be a joke. IMO it's the best part of the game.

    How awesome is it nobody has commented on the fact that there's a "the" between "Shaun" and "Sheep"?

    Answer: Not very... (...to both questions).
