Drake and Josh





Drake and Josh 


Drake & Josh on the Gameboy Advance (GBA) comes to us from THQ. The WMG has never seen this Nickelodeon television show, but learned a few things from playing this video game. First off, the WMG does not like the two teenage boys. Well at least one of them - Drake the first playable character. He is slothful, arrogant, irritating, full of himself, and a womanizer. The other one Josh is honest, kind, helpful, and considerate. Both of them are totally into getting girls to chase after them. The way this game plays initially is like a Metal Gear Solid without all the ultra violence. Players must sneak through room after room, acquiring keys, and using skills (like charming the ladies) to get through the puzzles. The storyline is told through the two calling one another on cell phones. Has the WMG mentioned a disgust at the enslavement too many people have to cell phones?

This is a GBA game, so do not expect any stunning visuals. The graphical style seems on par with Monster House, but without the bad stuff. Bouncing balls can hit the boys, but they themselves do not do anything violent. Most of the color schemes are nice, but a few are a little too dark. The art work is okay - nothing to write home about, or complain about.

Drake & Josh have some nice sounds, and some irritating sounds. The main theme song is nice, but the guitar solo used to charm the girls just does not fit into swooning type of sounds. Unless the WMG has been out of that kind of game too long, but teenage girls do not go for that kind of thing.

Drake & Josh really fail on the replay department. Some of the levels are so frustrating that they need to be replayed, and the password function annoys as well. After beating the game though, there is little reason to replay it. Only one player can play this game at a time as well.

The controls in Drake & Josh work perfectly. Each level has a time limit that can be pretty annoying to defeat properly, especially if a mistake is made. The designs of these levels is very intelligent. I had some fun playing this game, and liked the non-violent Metal Gear kind of action.

Drake is talking about kissing girls all the time, and his attitudes need a major adjustment. Josh behaves the way a young man is supposed to, and belongs in everyone’s lives as an example of how to act. THQ showed other developers that a good non-violent video game can be made that is still fun to play. The WMG would love to see many more non-violent games like this, and a sequel would be much appreciated. The difficulty should be tweaked down a little bit, especially since the younger set is the target audience for any sequel.
