This game takes you on a journey through the weired and wonderful world of fututama. On you're way you encounter many of the tv shows characters, who undoubtubly add the inevitable humour. I am a huge fututama fan and enjoyed this very much, I can see why dislikers of the programme however would not like this as much (hens the rating).
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.
