Jim the Earthworm is one character to remember. The earthworm dressed in a robotic suits who fought enemies was complex. He could run, shoot, swing on hooks and use power-ups for the blaster. I remember how good the in-between levels looked, when Earthworm Jim was placed in a semi-3D environment to race against Psycrow. Unlike other games, Jim didn't have to fight the bosses, but to find their weaknesses and exploit it. This was something new during an age of violent fights between chracters and bosses.
A worm is hiding in his hole, trying to escape a hungry crow. Wondering if it is safe for him to come out, I he sticks his head out. He looks left and right, unaware of a suit falling from the sky.
By the time the worm sees the suit coming, it is too late to get out of the way. The suit lands on top of him, completely covering his body.
A strange interaction of the worm's flesh and the suit's particles creates a mutation of the worm's body and brain, transforming him into "Earthworm Jim." The suit has come from a battle in space where Psy-Crow is trying to retrieve a stolen suit. Amidst the chaos, the suit gets lost and and sees Jim and the suit, and thus begins the chase.
Earthworm Jim is one of the best action games I've seen all year. I love the warped jokes and visual effects in this game. There's a number of cheap hits, but any true gamer should bo able to beat it with practice. It's always a challenge. The graphics and sounds have every little detail to them. It plays great, and the diversity of techniques is nice. This game was made by a gamer, and it shows.
This game just kicks @$$ in every way, shape, and form! EWJ is simply the coolest character to arrive in a long lime. The game has perfect control, awesome voices and a fun quest. The humor really rapart from the rest. The ere all unique, especially jump. Too cool! Earthworm Jim gets my vote as the coolest character and hottest action game Of the year. What more can I say? ,
Awesome! Absolutely incredible! Earthworm Jim is one of the best platform games I have played this year. This game is loaded with more than just gieat graphics, fantastic sound und awesome game play. I totally loved the originality put into the game, especially with the cow-launching. Hysterical! The character mannerisms and animation have to be seen to be believed! It's a total riot! This is one hot game!
What an unlikely hero to make such a big hit. This little worm is larger than life (sort of like James Carrey) Just ihe animations of the character alone are incredible enough for anyone to be drawn to it like a to a flame. But it doesn't slop there the graphics and sounds complement the cool character. Thorn are big levels with different types of scenes to keep you entertained. Simply put--this game is smokin'!
Earthworm Jim video:
The characters are of a good stature, they all have an original look and have excellent animation. The animation must be seen to be believed, it's some of the smoothest ever seen in a video game in my opinion. Small graphical touches like snot coming off of your opponent in the bunjie jump levels or Jim's humorous waiting animations round out the beautiful graphics.
The clear voice effects and music score make this game friendly to the ears. Earthworm Jim is a stand-up comedian and sometimes, he just likes to sing. The booming and sometimes hilarious sound effects are really cool too.
Earthworm Jim is one of the better games for the Sega Genesis, with it's very diverse and a little strange levels and creative characters it is sure to be a game that will have you hooked for a while. You will be doing everything from racing a crow in a space suit to bungee jumping with a chunk of snot.
