"It'd be a crime not to mention this one. This one has its fans and I can definitely see why. It's a very imaginative set-up, where there's basically exploring the trippy dreams and nightmares of SpongeBob, Patrick and Plankton. This is probably the... weirdest Spongebob game ever produced? Though at times, it's also the ugliest. But there was obviously a lot of creative effort here, and I like that they tried to make it so off the wall. For example, at one point, Patrick dreams he's a superhero, and the town becomes this paper-thin, ink-dotted world; while SpongeBob gets a major graphical overhaul in racing. Looking kind of hard-boiled, like where else would we see hard-boiled SpongeBob? It all sounds good in theory, but when you look at it, it's pretty harsh on the eyes. Overall, this one's okay."
SpongeBob vs. the Big One: Beach Party Cook-Off
March 3, 2009
"Well, it's basically helping SpongeBob in the kitchen on DS. But more interesting than my comments on this would be the comments of the younger generation. And here they are: according to Common Sense Media, children stated, "We love it!", "I laughed, I very happy!", "They love me very much", and "fyhtsigjifuh"... yes, indeed! I can say these reviews were very insightful!"
Truth or Square

"Well, despite its unfortunate title, I like this one! I feel it captures the SpongeBob world very succinctly in its music, sound effects, and the characters' voice quips. And fortunately, it has nothing to do with the clip show of the SpongeBob special with the same name. So basically the story is, SpongeBob forgot where he put the formula... somehow. So to remember, he apparently has to get as happy as possible, Sure, why not!? So we travel through SpongeBob's memories trying to get him happier, in order for him to remember where he put the Krabby Patty formula. I know, it makes even less sense than usual, but it's a good game! This basically gives the game an excuse to send us through different episodes of the show in game form. So I guess it kind of is a SpongeBob clip show, in game form? But that's actually kinda cool. There's very clear ties between the show's episode and the level, and it's nice to be able to recognize them. The minus is, I found the levels can be a lot more linear than, say, The SpongeBob Movie game or Battle for Bikini Bottom. But it was still a pleasant enough SpongeBob experience. "
