I love the game. It's like an episode of the show except you...play it. I just wish it wasn't so rare/expensive!

My thoughts on the game:
Great for a TV show-based game,but still crap.Remind me,when was it released?In '03?Or was that '04?Anyway,it was released along with masterpieces of gameplay/graphics/physics that people were buying expensive consoles/hardware to play.It was so behind it's time!
It's still one of the best TV series-based games...They just tend to be crap...

I was wonder ideas of where to look for the game. I've been trying to find it for about 3 years now but I can't find it anywhere I've looked. Where should I go to get an unused copy of it but not too expenisve? I can't find anytihng in the U.S. I don't think the I can't afford to buy from over seas.

I'm selling my copy of the Futurama PS2 game, for anyone who's interested. It's for a PAL system.

I finally broke down and got a used xbox and Futurama (among a very few other games).  I really like it.  I agree with most online reviews that the game-play is rather poor but it is entertaining for Futurama fans.  Some things about the game play are kind of entertaining.  I love the way the mutants slap or pick up and shake Fry in the sewers.  If you do it with the invincibility cheat in effect it's like watching a Stooges film.  Fry would get a kick out of it.

It reminded me a bit of Bender's Big Score with the time travel plot and the music in the gold death star scene.

I got my used copy from "gamebo7000" on eBay who seems to specialize in old video games and has lots of positive feedback.  She claims to have a no-hassle return policy if it won't work.  I'm sure GameStop and others will have the game too.

The Buy It Now price seems to average $40; it may be experiencing a short term upswing with the interest that BBS has created.

I myself had a hard time finding it when I bought my copy a year or so ago on eBay. I bought it for fourty bucks, but it was mint condition....and I played the crap out of it....until I won the game by cheat-coding the final level...and then I shelved it. It's pretty easy to find in Gamestop, but good luck finding a copy that is actually decent enough. Most of the time the cases are in shambles and the manuals are gone. It's why I buy my things new.

Go for it. It's as good a shot as any. That or maybe Amazon.com, though they're marginably more expensive there.

Well on eBay the ceapest I'm seeing is $45.00 and I don't have that money considering I only get paid $60 a week at my job and I need to pay to fix my car. Hopefully Game Stop will be cheaper.

I've played the game (well, let's just say 'a lot'), and I enjoyed it. It is an episode in its own right, and was a great stopgap until the show rose from the grave. And is still fun to play now.

It'd be interesting to see a Hit-and-Run-type game, but it'd have to be more linear than that; I tried playing H&R and ended up ditching it, and going back to Futurama - freedom is one thing, but it got old wandering around, radomly bumping into missions. An RPG element, though, would give it at least some kind of structure. We'll see; maybe if the series comes back full-time, we might see another foray into console gaming. Here's hoping, on both counts.

I completely like your ideas and I too hope they'll make another game.

You know what would be a sweet game? Something like "1942" with the PE ship and various other Futurama stuff.

PS: Anybody who doesn't know what 1942 is can go rot for all I care.

This is a really fun game, but the way it ends seems to leave the Planet Express crew definitively dead, unless there's a way out of the endless temporal loop they're stuck in...

At Game Stop you say? I have been scanning my local Game Stop(s) for about 6 months with no luck. I am heading out to this crazy game place this weekend. Hopefully I will have some luck there.

I stumbled across this game preview video.  I'm sure it was created by Fox/Newscorp, otherwise there is no way I'd post it.  I don't want to aid and abet any would-be copyright infringers.

I've been playing it lately with the non-English voices; Leela's french voice was really nice, but Zoidberg's was awful - it was just the VA with his fingers up his nose!  smile

I just received my copy for the US XBOX from ebay. $24 total, used in like-new condition. The box was a little worn, but the cover art itself is perfect. A quick box switch with a lesser xbox game solved the problem.  big grin

So far I'm at the sewers level and it's a fun platformer with excellent humor! Not a Sonic or Mario by any means, but it IS the only game featuring a digital finglonger!

I genuinely did not see that coming. Brilliant.

It would've made a smashing grand series finale.

Futurama: The Lost Adventure

I know this isn't quite a regular episode, but I wanted to review it anyways. For anyone who hasn't seen this one, check out the Beast with a Billion Backs DVD for the edited/ more episodic version or Youtube for the regular version.

I don't know if it's just the fact that not many people know about this one, but I think it's very underrated. The story itself was very entertaining, and I liked how the episode ended (you can see some inspiration for Meanwhile's unexplained ending in this ones). It was pretty funny, too. I liked it when Fry and Bender yelled "Hooray! We don't have to do anything!", as well as Fry's description of what Spaceship Earth was like, among many other things. The most important crew members all got their time to shine in this one, to add to the good points. I enjoyed Professor Adoy, and I'm surprised we never saw him again after this, because he had a memorable personality. The graphics used weren't top-notch, but I still liked them nevertheless. I'd have to give this one a 10/10. A surprisingly great one.

So what you're saying is that if it was an actual episode that it would be among the greatest in the show?  I think I'm gonna need to re-rent TBwaBB from Netflix, I just assumed that the version on YouTube was the DVD cut.

I'm not sure if it'd be one of the absolute greatest episodes of all time for everyone, (I cut It a little slack for being produced in an unusual way,) but I personally like it alot.

The Youtube versions are practically the same as the DVD version, by the way. The one that came with BWABB just had a few shortened scenes and different sound effects, so it feels less like video game cutscenes and more like an actual-factual episode. However, the DVD one was simply recorded by David Cohen as he was playing the real game (According to the commentary), so the Youtube version likely has much higher quality visuals.

I do like the basic idea of the plot and it could have been a good episode, if produced as one, but it's really not good. Some things are just too much, like city on the surface of Sun and while corner of the Universe is very funny, it's bit over the top, too. What I don't like about it, is the sloppy humor and dialogs, it simply doesn't feel like it's good quality.

I wish it was made by EA. Despite being "evil", EA would undoubtedly have the funds to make the game the best it could've been. Seriously, the lack of Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr and David Herman was very disappointing.

Also, EA wasn't even that bad back in whatever year this game was released. There wasn't the awful DRM or DLC that plagues their games these days.
