Im trying to get ahold of a copy of the futurama video game Im hearing so much about, but I dont have an xbox or a ps2.  Did the game ever make it to pc?  Ive been looking around for it but cant find an answer one way or the other.

Sorry, only for PS2 and X-BOX...

I had this game before and completed it, but I lost it.

But, I bought it again today for 12. Yes! Once again I have the best Video Game Ever!

I've yet to be able to find a copy of this game, after turning it down for review for reasons that escape me.  Here's an ebay link to a cheap copy of the PS2 version, in case you ever get the system -  http://cgi.ebay.com/Futurama-Playstation-2-PS2-PS-NEW-SEALED-Free-Shipping_W0QQitemZ8211305049QQcategoryZ62053QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem#ebayphotohosting

I find it annoying too, but when I found the cheats, I got to play fun levels that I couldn't get to before. If it weren't Futurama it'd suck. But it is, so therefore it's the greatest game ever!   wink

I found the game enjoyable.

It had some obvious control flaws but other than that I thought it was pretty good.

Yeah. It would. I found the game highly enjoyable (I'm on the second to last level, Leela's Last Laugh) I'm the kind of gamer that wangs at everything hard on consoles, so it's good they made it easier than some games. Iunno what my favorite level is tough, since they all rule
Edit: I found the only control flaw was that you couldn't always break open boxes with Fry's hammer. Other than that, I thought they were good. Zoidy ruled in that level

It's a bonus level, and is better than having nothing.

Nice signature by the way, GreyThinkyWhale. I thought Zoidberg was hilarious making all those noises when you ran into something or fell off of something. "Yah horsie, yah!"

It was SO a bonus level.
You get Fry Levels, Bender Levels, and Leela levels.

The Zoidberg level was a bonus, otherwise Zoidy would be fully playable, and there would be many more Zoidy levels.

It IS a bonus level, and is better than nothing.

I bought mine off of Amazon a loooong time ago for practically 15 bucks.
I enjoy the redlight district level the best... but I also found the last three levels really fun as well.

Alright, cut the spam... you obviousely have different opinions of what a bonus level is. Either you think it's one that you unlock differently, or you think it's one that is played differently, it DOESN'T MATTER!

What's the game like? I saw one at my local video game store for half the RRP price, but I was sceptical cause' I didn't want to get burned by a poorly made game trying to capitalise off Futurama's popularity. Is the gameplay mildly tolerable, or is it a waste of time?

In my exsperiance, just about everthing involved with futurama is a waste of time *in a good way*. 'Cause everyone knows us futurama fans have no life... Right?... >_>

Slightly more than mildly tolerable. I bought the game at full price when it was released which wasn't the best idea but as a pretty heavy games player I can assure you that it's well worth half the RRP if you can find it for that. If you're a Futurama fan then it's even more worth playing, I'd grab it and enjoy new Futurama  smile

It's a very boring game. Worse than hit and run. Not worth my dollars and it's also basicly 2d. I reckon they shouldn't try to get 3d the clips should be like the shows animation. Fantastic.

I don't know anything about the game, but is Blernsball incorporated in any way?  If not, what would you all think about a Futurama Blernsball game?  If official rules could be gotten from the writers, I think it would be pretty sweet. 

Imagine playing Blernsball as your favorite Futurama characters.  If you swung the bat too hard with Zoidberg he would snip it in half  big grin  And there could be a bonus round where you pitch as Leela and need to bean batters in specific areas of their bodies for the most extra points   laff

Yep, sounds good...for an online game.

It would be really fun, but not good enough for a
PS2. Lots of people would be disappointed by the lack
of game completion time, and it get very boring after a while.
However, an online version of it would be good, because
nobody would have to waste their money on it.

Hit & Run kicks ass! And it would cost mucha money to do show-quality graphics. I liked the game.


@Dan: It could be good enough for a PS2 game if they did it well, and made more than just the basics. However, with the show being long-cancelled, they 'aint making more merchandise.
