Under the Skin
3 Star Review  GameZone - Oct 21, 2004

I once knew a fellow from Manchester, England who relished in pulling off office pranks. His pranks ranged from the very tame (whoopee cushions) to the more excessive (exploding cigars) but it was the act of planning and the execution that made pranks such a joy for him. Yet after awhile those same pranks began to wear thin and, after the twentieth whoopee cushion, no one was laughing at the sound of fake flatulence anymore. Capcom’s Under the Skin is a game about a mischievous alien with a fondness for playing pranks on humans. It’s a unique game indeed but will the pranks get as old as my old co-worker’s whoopee cushion? Under the Skin doesn’t have much of a story, really.

2.5 Star Review  GameSpy - Oct 14, 2004

A few weeks back, we dove into a preview of Capcom's Under The Skin, an arcade party game that casts you in the role of a bouncing blue alien. The gist of our first playtests was, this game could be pretty cool, as long as it gets a bit beyond the basic premise of taking human disguises to play pranks and collect coins. Well, either our expectations were too high or Under The Skin is a serious underachiever, because this is one limited little game.

3 Star Review  IGN.com - Oct 12, 2004

Cosmi is a little mischief alien who winds up on the barbaric world of Earth . If he can cause sufficient amounts of panic without being discovered and dissected, he'll be able to return to his home planet a hero. That's the gist of Under the Skin, from the same company that created Viewtiful Joe. Unfortunately for us, lighting isn't striking twice.
