Comic Jumper Sale

#1 Posted by YoungFrey (1321 posts) -

So XBLA is doing a 1-day sale where Comic Jumper is $5.  So I picked it up to play later, I'll risk $5 on most anything.  I tried the demo when it came out and was sorely dissapointed.  I'd probably have given it 2-stars.  So even despite Jeff's glowing review, I didn't want to get it.  I remember hearing that either the demo or the prerelease copies where different than the final version.  Is that true?

I think there were slight differences, but from what I heard it wasn't too much. I think the game just tires out the small amount of stuff it does. Too much repetition. That didn't stop me from paying 5 bucks for Comic Jumper though. =P

I jumped on this deal as soon as I saw it today.  So far the game is super repetitive but its worth it for the funnyz.

The game was alright but I am glad I didn't spend full price when it first came out.

Since the sale is still going on I thought I would go ahead and throw in my two cents and hopefully convince someone out there to go ahead and by the game. I give it 4 stars and yall know how much I matter.

Comic Jumper can be really funny but the game is so repetitive and clunky in spots I just stopped playing.

I finally got around to playing it (I forgot I owned it).  It's funny, but the gameplay sure does bring the game down.  I see it as mostly a bad dual-stick shooter.  But you usually lack the movement that characterizes the genre since there is gravity.  But it also can become a bad brawler or a bad rails shooter.  But boy is it funny.  The stats song is wonderful.
