If you've never played Earthworm Jim, definitely open your mind and have a sense of humor and try this title out as it contains some of the better gaming memories (and I loved the cartoon!) I have from the 90's. If you're an old Earthworm Jim vet like myself, pick it up again if only to appreciate for it's much sharper visuals and enjoy the nostalgia; hopefully you'll find enough new features and levels to make some new memories with Jim as well.
It's a great HD version of a classic game, and I look forward to running through it again when the PSN version launches.
It's telling that Earthworm Jim HD is most fun when it's playing with ideas that go beyond its core gameplay mechanics. But it's also telling that this wide range of inventive ideas manage to elevate the game far above its obvious flaws.
There's no doubt that playing Earthworm Jim with updated graphics and game modes is a treat. Even though I had a lot of fun reliving my younger days, the game shows its age, and despite all the additions made in both the single and multi-player, I have a hard time recommending this game to newcomers.
For those of you that understand the limitations of the original Earthworm Jim and just want to relive the quirky fun, Earthworm Jim HD is a good investment. But for those of you that have never played it before, beware that the game's fun and goofy personality comes at a price.
