Astro Boy: The Video Game

 

Astro Boy has a long history that stretches back to the early 1950s in Japan where it debuted in manga form with a television series not long after. Most recently, the property saw a silver screen release with an accompanying video game that is loosely...

Fun to play. Easy for the kids to enjoy

Graphics are not great. Story was somewhat short

Astro Boy: The Video Game

 

To say the least, "Astro Boy: The Video Game" is a terrible representation of all things Astro Boy.

When it's all said and done, there really are plenty of worse things out there, but as far as Astro Boy goes, this is the weakest link. Stay away from this game unless you have a young gamer in the family that has a deep love for robotic things.

Astro Boy: The Video Game Review

 

Don't have astronomical expectations for this movie-based action title

I doubt this game is going to make many players happy. Young fans of the movie probably won't understand or appreciate the retro 2D gameplay, and 2D action fans won't stand for the numerous control and design issues. While it takes its cues from the...

Astro Boy: The Video Game

 

The high-flying Astro Boy stays firmly planted on the ground in this unimaginative adaptation of the film.

Sloppy hand-to-hand combat ; Repetitive level design ; Muddy and unimpressive graphics ; Too short

Astro Boy: The Video Game

 

No amount of butt machine guns can save this game.

Astro Boy just straight up isn't much fun. There is fun to be had, namely in the flying levels, but those are small portions of the game. The majority is a functional, but boring platformer/brawler. If you know a kid that will crack up every time Astro...

Astro Boy: The Video Game

 

An anime icon from the past returns in retro style

Beat 'em-up combat with depth ; Fun combination of old genres ; Not insanely difficult

Shoddy cutscenes ; Low budget feel ; Levels get boring

More than anything, Astro Boy is a great surprise for what many would assume is simply some child’s Christmas present. The Astro Boy coating is there so kids ask mommy and daddy to spend their holiday bonuses on it, but High Voltage Software felt nice...

Astro Boy: The Video Game

 

I'm quite fond of the original Astro Boy anime. While not a diehard fan, I came across the anime during a late night cartoon block and immediately fell in love with the character and world he inhabited. There was something so innocent and pure about...

Poor combat, generic enemies, and uninteresting levels make for a game that isn't worthy of the Astro Boy license.

Astro Boy: The Video Game

 

For those of you unfamiliar with the character whose name graces this video game tie-in, Astro Boy is a robot who has been imbued with the soul of a child, and who then longs to be a flesh-and-blood youth. If you're thinking that sounds awfully similar...

Effectively pairs a 2D brawler with a flying shooter, had the gall to combine armaments with bodily processes

Combat is simple and cheap, graphics and textures put the ass in Asstro Boy, it could leave younger gamers a bit frustrated

One of Osamu Tezuka's most beloved creations was granted a silver-screen adaptation rather recently, complete with a complimentary videogame tie-in. Does this side-scrolling anime-influenced action title keep with the spirit of the fun-filled original...

Slightly more fun with a buddy
