    It's weird on gamefaqs for the europe edition it says it's supposed to be called Sam Power not Tim Power

    EDIT: Ok in the north American release it's called Jake Power, lol Jake,Tim and Sam they must be brothers

    He was about to get ran over.
    Ubisoft is getting gay by these nockshat games.
    Imagine,Now Tim Power! Power? He couldnt have the power to protect himself by getting ran over.

    Well Ubi like there series' so Tim Power - Paramedic, Tim Power - Emergency Vet and Tim Power - Life Guard are probably already in the works.

    Tim Power - Landscape Gardener and Tim Power - IT Technician, will follow those shortly.

    Well just had a quick try of this and Ubisoft should be ashamed. Essentially it's the almost exact same game as the fireman one, but with a different skin. Although, really should I be surprised? Probably not.

    Still, ok for 3-6 year olds, again you have to drive to the destination, collecting enough stars on the way and using the siren so car will move out of your way. One thing I did notice was that the car seem to be in exactly the same places each time you play.

    The next part of this level is slightly different and slightly more interesting than the fireman game. You have to tap burglars as they pass by windows on the high rise. Although, if I had that many burglars in my apartment block at any one time, I'd just consider moving, cos the neighbourhood clearly ain't safe.

    Meh same game different names ... checks the box that it does not say IMAGINE anywhere!!

    not much point in differences unless TIM or SAM is some kind of offensive name in some places!?

    Actually I think I might have guessed the reason for the name change in the UK at least.

    The other game is a fireman one, and as they want to use the same name on both products that would mean it would have been very similar to a children's character in the UK called Fireman Sam. It's therefore probably a legal issue.

    Why he's also Tim in Italy I don't know.

    And as I said in another thread, he's probably called Jake in North America because they think that Jake sound more manly than Sam and certainly Tim.
