Earthworm Jim - PSP - Preview

E3 2006 Hands On Preview

Shiny Entertainment is hard at work on a new Earthworm Jim. This title had a great start as a colorful side-scroller. It stumbled a few times trying to make it in the 3D world, and that's probably why this title is going back to the 2D roots.


Polygons are used for the levels and characters, but the game controls and camera are all 2D. The demo I played was an early build, so the trusty whip (Jim's body) was difficult to use. The look of the game and level design harkens back to the old days. Ironically, the demo was running on a PS2, even though it's only being released on the PSP.


Fans of the early Earthworm Jim games can be hopeful that this game brings us back to the zany early days of this series.


For All E3 2006 Previews
