It's a good remake and expansion of a classic
26 June 2007 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I'm quite impressed by what Hasbro did with classic Frogger. This game was obviously redone in 3D with improved sounds and new music. The first levels involve you crossing the road just like in the classic game. However, people nowadays (as of 1997) would expect more than that, and Hasbro lived up to these expectations. There are now all sorts of different types of levels in many different worlds - I think it's just terrific!

Of course, no game is perfect. The main problem is that the controls can be just a little slow responding at times. The problem when you need a really fast move to save yourself. It's best, instead, to avoid getting into "near death" situations. The only other thing you have to adapt to is the fact that Frogger takes a split moment to land after hop, meaning you shouldn't expect to make a jump onto a moving object at the very last second. Other those two things, though, this game has quite fine game-play.

I've played both the PC and playstation version, and have favored the playstation because it is more challenging in several ways. One way is that you only get 3 lives to start with instead of 5. The other thing is a time limit modification. Starting with "Lily islands" each level on the playstation version has only 2/3 the time limit of the levels on the PC version. (Except for Looney Balloons, Crumpled point, and Big Boulder Alley, where the modification is about 3/4) For example, in the PC version, on Scorching Switches, you get 60 seconds but, on the playstation, you only get 40.

Here are some tips for people playing this game: First, you're on a timer, so when presented with a new level, just expend some lives to explore it and try to learn where the frogs are so you know what you're doing next time. Second, always be aware of your surroundings and avoid getting into hazardous situations that easily warrant death. Third, never be disheartened if you get a game over, the more times you play a level, the better you learn how to do it. Overall, the keys to playing this game are: Awareness, timing things well, patience, and most importantly, practice! You can beat any level with these four things.

In summation, this is a very proud remake with few downfalls. And it's even good for general video game skill-building.
