Oh God I love this game. Oh God I love it more when I got it on my PlayStation. A Third Person Shooter where you kill Stinky Petes and Zurgs Evil Robotic toys, do challenges and have a couple of memorable boss battles.

The main game revolves around getting Pizza Planet Tokens to unlock new levels in a story order from Andy’s House, The Neighbourhood, Alleys, Al’s Toybarn, The Elvator Shaft, Al’s Apartment, Construction Site (Why?), Airport (Both The Baggage area and the runway) And the various boss stages in between. You can Earn tokens by finding either the special token, collecting 100 coins for Ham, defeating the Mini Bosses, Collecting tikes/ sheep/ soldiers/ .etc for someone, doing a slinky challenge or Racing RC. Each level has 5 tokens, and it’ll be challenging across some really amazingly designed levels.

Each level is nicely designed with chunky effective graphics, sprawling levels, pletny of challenge and amazing deaths as you try to pull of some stupid jump to fall to your doom… or a token! Travellers Tales polished this game off excellently and has made it one great movie tie in that isn’t just a cash cow.

This is one of my favourite games, If your a fan of the movie or would like to have a look at a different approach at the FPS genre. This version of the game is also the surperior version one over the PC one thanks to easier controls and the ability to have morer people crowded  Around the screen.

NOTE: I personally couldn’t finish it, but sat in awe as my brother completed it on our second version on the playstation. That version is the best because it controls slightly better.
