  • Rating: E
  • Genre: Side-Scrolling Platformer

It’s not quite sufficient to say that Spy Kids 4 is a bad video game because that doesn’t really take into account the younger demographic for which the game was constructed. “Constructed”, because it feels slapped together. The level menus are strangely coded, there are many sluggish graphical points, save points are only between levels and neither the story elements nor the levels themselves have any sense of flow. Nonetheless, it plays like classic platformers and its flaws, strangely, extend its potential play time. I’d only recommend it for fans of the franchise and parents looking to keep their kids occupied.

Verdict: Forget It
