REAL GAMES - B.O.B.

Today's game is brought to you by the letter B!  That's right folks, I have finished the games starting with numbers and A.  Yay!

B.O.B. is a typical platforming game brought to us by none other than Electronic Arts.  And it sucks.  What's that?  You want some back story?  Okay.  I hate EA as a company, and I usually transfer that rage onto their games.  However, for the sake of my quest, I will put aside my hatred and attempt to play and judge their games with fairness and equality.  With that being said, this game still sucks.

We start the game with an intro so boring, that 90% of the text actually says "blah blah blah".  This was probably done in an attempt to be funny, but it fails.  Basically, you play an alien, (that looks like a Thri-Kreen from the D&D Dark Sun settings), who crashes his dad's flying car on the way to picking up his date.  And I've already lost interest...good job, game.

Thri-Kreen: The very definition of overpowered.
One thing I can't bitch about is the controls.  Every button is used, and yet it remains very simple to learn.  Punch, jump, gun, remote.  Shoulder buttons cycle through the various guns and remotes.

I can, however, bitch about the music.  90% of the music in this game is horrendous.  For example, the intro music actually hurt my ears with its high pitched squeels and beeps.  And the sound effects are complete garbage.  There are some catchy songs in this game, all of which are techno\synth and somewhat fit the setting for this game, but they are far and few between.

Graphically, this game isn't very impressive either.  The sprite animation is decent, but this game lacks in everything else.  The stage designs are boring, unimaginative, and almost as generic as the enemy designs.

I had the same expression on my face throughout this entire game.
The gameplay is what you would expect.  It's a platformer that offers nothing new.  It's fairly easy and offers no real challenge.  Take a bare platformer, slap the alien in it, throw in some corny 90's catch phrases, and voila!  You have B.O.B.

I can't say that this game disappointed me, as I really didn't expect much to begin with.  I went in expecting a lame excuse for a platformer, and EA delivered.  Yay for them.  1 boring enemy out of 5.  Not a good way to start off a new letter, EA.

Sweet game!

SpringyB said... [Reply]

Haha, is it bad that immediately knew what a Thri-Kreen looked like?

Don't worry though, there are s few good games in B. It also means I have to get around to reviewing Brain Lord before you get to it >_>.

One time I played Super Mario Brothers. For approximately an hour. Thus concludes my gaming experience.
