Not a big fan of the movie, I was wondering how they could make a game out of it. Yet, Jungle Book has great music and !animation to match. The sounds fit this cart perfectly, but Mowgli's yell is very annoying. It's tough at times to know quite where you are going, and I often got lost in the huge levels. If you can brave the many instant hits, Jungle Book is certain to give you an enjoyable adventure.
Fantastic animation. That's the first thing people say when they see Jungle Book. They also see a game that is more than an average action game. It's quite easy to lose yourself in a game like this. The music, particularly the earlier levels, can get to you after a while--thank goodness you can turn it off. All in all, Jungle Book uses the basic play mechanics of successes like Cool Spot and yet another winner is cranked out.
I like this game. Jungle Book recreates the likenesses of the characters with great detail and smooth animation This is evident throughout the game with all the huge, colorful levels that you must venture through. The fine control is a welcome feature, especially when the levels are as large as they are in this game. The music recreation is catchy and can also get you humming a bit. Good for players of all ages.
Virgin is the king of animation and doesn't disappoint with the awesome looks of Jungle Book. The characters and sounds really create the jungle atmosphere. Complementing its looks are the sharp controls and fun game play. The game can get a bit repetitive since all the scenes are jungle related, but nonetheless the action is still fun to scroll through. Huge levels of brilliant color and animation await you.
Jungle Book is a worthwhile game. Fans of the movie will be happy to see their old friends again and battle its infamous cast of villains. Parents need not worry, the game is as harmless as video games can be while still involving bad guys. It is a worthy add-on to your video game collection. And it's a whole heck of a lot of fun!
