What do you guys think? I haven't seen any other posts about this topic. Here's my review:

worst.videogame.ever. Okay, I love Futurama. Maybe that's why I get so frustrated to see Futurama get even further insulted by having such a crappy game. The graphics are great and the cut scenes are pretty funny, but the game is just unplayable. It was so just slapped together to make money. I never ever had to blindly jump off ledges because the camera keeps getting stuck in walls. What's up with the save only after the 4-6+ part level? What's up with the teeny weeny half circle health bar? Most importantly, what's up with the no Amy thing? And what does a shoot em up have to do with Futurama? Yeah there is the plot, but it seemed like an excuse to have to kill endless boring enemies forever. ie-they couldn't think of any better gameplay

Also, they promoted the FMV scenes to be like a missing Futurama episode which you can watch over and over again, they even said it will answer a lot of questions about Fry and Leela, but no! The humor is noticably lowered since this is a videogame, and once you have all the movies, they don't nearly make what I would consider an episode. They're 2 minutes, sometimes 20 second blips of slightly watered down futurama.

Also,the jumps and movements need to be more forgiving-having Leela do the light up puzzle jumps were a big beotch.All jumps were a big beotch. I hate dying because of the game's fault(the camera or sloppy controls).The shooting wasn't too nice either, even with the auto targeting. This game is platforming at its worst.I guess this is just a game for ppl who get a kick out of playing Fry, leela, etc. and hearing their quips which are pretty funny. But there really is nothing else enjoyable about this game. I spent just $7 renting this and I'm still mad at the money I lost. Boy this is really long and angry. sorry about that.

Overall,this game is definitely not the best, not necessarily the worst, but in my eyes it's pretty darn crappy since it further insults Futurama. It sucks that we'll never see another Futurama game and that this is what we're stuck with.

CRAP. Right after I posted I looked again and saw this topic elsewhere. Sorry for wasting your time ppl. I don't know why I didn't see it before, I DID look. Probably because of Futurama's bad camera now my vision is all messed up. So blame it on Futurama the game. Don't blame it on me ppl. Honest mistake. Take a deep breath, relax, yes this is the same topic posted elsewhere, it was a mistake.

Jeez this was a really pointless topic. Feel free to erase this entire topic so that I can repost it on that other older topic thread.
