Good game that gets undeservedly bashed due to e-celeb parroting shitters. Pig Surfing is a great boss level with good controls.

A sad follow up after two great games. Not terrible, but they clearly didn't know how to make an interesting 3D game.

The boss battles are of course terrible and the most glaring example of Artificial Difficulty I can think of in all of video gaming. That said, I feel they a bit unfairly weigh down folks' perception of the rest of the game, which is a decent-to-good platforming collectathon depending on the level.

Even worse, Gameloft now has the rights and so we will never get another decent port again. Partly because they got the rights to the game, but not the voice acting. So Jim sounds like a kid doing bad impressions.

The cartoon had some quality voice cast, including Dan fucking Castellaneta as the worm himself. I was super impressed how they managed to bring the show's whole cast over for EWJ3D, even if it was for just a couple of lines.

It has the type of ending that would piss of a SJW or feminist Nazi.

It is a decent game, but in comparison to the first two it lacks that wackyness and oddity that they had.

I mean, you don't get to fight a robot chicken in freefall while spiky walls surround you both in another game, do you?

as I recall a fridge falls on you and later a cow is shown falling on you in a photo. I don't see how that's at all related to feminist types and whatnot

I enjoyed this game, it's definitely underrated. It suffered coming out amidst a slew of more advanced game, and felt quite dated though. If the game had come out when it was scheduled to it would have a better reputation, but the game was cut, rebuilt, delayed endlessly, and it shows. Boss battles dont make sense, some of the platforming is horrifying (some of the stuff in the Elvis level comes to mind) and some levels feel clearly unfinished (the wild west) but otherwise theres plenty of great design and genuinely amusing moments.

I disagree. EWJ3D shows a lack of understanding of what even the series is all about, the first two games were zany and subversive. they sort of took the piss at other video games, subtle commentary in ways. visuals were great too, on par with Aladdin

this game conforms to the era and didn't try anything different, nor does it have anything unique to say. also it was missing a bunch of shit on launch previous shown in videos, magazines and delayed a bunch of times
