Death Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom
3 Star Review  GameZone - Jun 13, 2007

The Death Jr. franchise made its debut on the Sony PSP in 2005 as a launch title. It received relatively poor reviews due to its abundance of glitches and generally unexciting visuals. A sequel, Root of Evil, was seen a year later on the handheld, but it unfortunately didn’t correct any of its predecessor’s quirks. Here we are in 2007, and developer Backbone has decided to bring DJ to the Nintendo DS. Death Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom, on paper, is a 2D action-platformer with 3D segments. The hypothesis, as the title suggests, surrounds a science fair and a project that went horribly askew.

Death Jr.
1 Star Review   By member bob330i - Apr 30, 2008   

Weakness: mainly controls

You’d think that the concept is a good one. Death Jr has a lot of potential: cool storylines, weird foes and environments..but no, they really botched this one up. The controls are bad (not precise enough), graphics are marginal and it generally lacks the potential outlandishness that you’d expect from the concept of why and who DJ is. I guess I’m just spoiled after playing Daxter on the PSP, one of the best portable platformers outside of some of the Mario DS titles. I’d avoid this title like the plague.
