Based on the animated series Futurama, this game is a third-person action shooter featuring the four main characters from the show, Fry, Bender, Leela and Dr Zoidberg. Each character is fully playable and has their own select moves and weapons as well as different playing styles. The game is very straightforward and easy to pick up and play, and features a superb mix of action (shooting, flaming, kicking and punching), agility (jumping, climbing), simple puzzle solving (activate generator to use elevator to reach new area) and, of course, hilarious dialogue.

The voices have been done by the real actors, and the story has been written by futurama writers.
It's well funny and has loads of dry humour,
As well as plenty of action. Most of the levels consist of shooting aliens and mutants, among other things.
Although the game is difficult, you feel really good when you finally finish a level and save the game.
Extremely difficult, but if you are persistent enough to get past this, the game is actually really fun.
Save points aren't very frequent, but all this means is you will play for longer each time.
If you don't like futurama, you may not get the humour. But does anyone not like futurama?
Get the game to add to your collection. It will take ages to complete, but if you like futurama and/or shooting, this game will keep you entertained for months! (Good value :-p)
You begin you're adventure as fry, the dimwitted pizza-boy who was croigenically-frozen in the year 2000 and found himself popping out in 3000 AD. There are 2 other characters to play as, unlocking them as you make you're way through the game's endless missions and puzzles. There is also 1 further character you only get to use for a short period of time.
The controls are simple, it takes very little time to pick them up. Although each character has his/her own unique abilities so controls differ slightly.
Graphics in this game are much like those used in most simpsons games. They are excellent, showing off the cast's endless adventures brilliantly. Great detail is taken with scenery also, entering places from the tv show you can explore and unlock hidden secrets on your way.
In terms of length this game kept me occupied for a good 2 weeks, playing for a decent amount of time each day. They manage to varie missions very well, keeping you fixated throughout. One thing I will say against this game though is that to the inexperienced gamer it could become quite an arduous task to complete certain missions, I personally became stuck on certain missions for a few days. I find this to make me loose interest in the game, so for any strugglers out there I advise that you find yourself a good cheat's site and unlock such features as unlimited health etc. This can help you get through those much hated missions.
Overall I would rate this game pretty highly, worth the money. If you are a fan of the tv show or are just in need of a giggle, this is for you.
This is an arcade game, the usual level run where you collect items and power ups along the way. The controls and story are good, and the different scenes (sewers, New New York, alien worlds and even the sun) and gameplay (you get to ride a chicken walker!) make this a good game in general and especially for fans of the cartoon series.
Generally it's a good game and i would recommend it to anyone whether or not you're a futurama fan.
