Rayman Origins manages to come comes across as a AAA title, even if it was denied a AAA budget and a proper marketing campaign. Massive amounts of care that are above and beyond that of most game...

The deliriously entertaining antics of Nickelodeon's Spongebob Squarepants are on full display in the most chaotic party game the franchise has ever licensed, Spongebob Squigglepants 3D. This rapidly paced installment in the Spongebob saga is exclusively available on the Nintendo 3DS. The bulk of this adventure is comprised of a relatively new form of mini-games known as Nanogames which typically last between five seconds and one minute. The result is a deviously humorous roller-coaster ride through the underwater city of Bikini Bottom.

The loosely constructed plot revolves around Patchy the Pirate, the comically deranged host of the series. He appears in sudden intermittent segments to string the zany excess into some semblance of coherency. Abrupt hilarity lurks around every corner of this game. The majority of the game-play focuses on the unique features of the 3DS controller. The stylus is a prominent aspect of most Nanogames, although other ones involve shaking and spinning the controller or racing on the circle pad. Irreverent jokes riddle every second of the non-stop playing action. Every game offers a wide set of visual aesthetics, showcasing the signature animation style spliced with live-action narratives and a series of retro games presented in 8-bit pixels. These arcade twists include spins on Tetris, and Pong. Progressing through the game's seven world environment fiendishly difficult task for children, fans of the show and experienced gamers alike. While the tasks seem simple at first glance, they become mind-numbingly addictiveness. Exceedingly complex games are unlocked as the player improves their skills and masters all the Nanogames.

Despite being a formulaic hodgepodge of miniscule animated missions, there is hardly any filler content in this game. Every unexpected turn of events contains hilarious tidbits of information about characters that fans cannot get anywhere else. There is not a dry second let alone a boring one. The quickness in which players can rack up accomplishments is stupefying. The key reward is secret access to behind the scenes animation from the series itself, including previously unreleased storyboards.

The first and foremost goal of Spongebob Squigglepants 3D is to deliver a non-stop stream of ocean silliness. In accomplishing this task, THQ managed also to produce a game that can appeal to all generations. At no time does the inanity detract from game-play value. In enlisting the original talent from the show, Tom Kenny, as Patchy the Pirate, Nickelodeon managed to extend the life of its most recognizable franchise yet again. The use of 3D is astonishing and engaging, more so than most releases at this time.

In eventuality, some portions of the game can become repetitious. The Remix and Hyper Remix Modes remedy this a little bit, but older fans still may want to skip the over-the-top narrative segments and just get right to the lightning speed gaming. The most adaptable feature this game features is the ability to create one's own assortments of Nanogames in the order of their preference. Everyone in the series at least gets a cameo, packing endless explosive surprises.
