Let the games begin The Aquatic Games, that is! James Pond returns with his friends, the Aquabats! There's eight grueling events to test your amphibious athletic skills, along with three different difficulty settings designed to hone your competitive skills. Test your endurance at the 100m Splash; the Hop, Skip, and Jump; Shell Shooting and many others. Watch out for bad sports out to ruin the games for everyone!
This game tries to capitalize on the Track & Field theme using the familiar James Pond characters. The game uses the proven punch-the-buttons-as-fast-as-you-can-to-build-up-speed play mechanics. Most ot the competitive modes were too challenging without a rapid fire joystick, and the events were, all in all, boring.
In the past. James Pond was a great tongue-in-cheek type of kid's game that was also a lot of fun to play. Now, while the humor is still there, the game is no longer a kid's game as the difficulty is set way above what a kid would have patience for. On the other hand, it just isn't a fun game for the older player.
I like the concept behind Aquatic Games. The graphics are very cute and the game will appeal to younger players. The game play, however is far too difficult for younger players and makes the game unbalanced. There are a few really cool events, but the majority are frustrating and won't be very fun for most players.
This is a kid's game with adult difficulty. I can't see this game appealing to the people who would play it consistently. Kids will have a hard time completing most of the levels (would you bounce a ball on YOUR nose for over four minutes?), and some levels are insanely difficult. Don't get this for young kids!
