Review of 'Eskimo Eddie'

Rating:1 User: YOR

What is it with Ocean's arcade-inspired games having pointless mini-games at the beginning? Mr. Wimpy had it and now I load up Eskimo Eddie and it has one too! First we have a Frogger type game where you have to avoid clouds and polar bears to retrieve a penguin at the top of the screen and bring him back down again, and repeat twice more. I hate this part, it took me ages to get past it and so then I was finally able to play some Pengo which I was expecting at the beginning, and then that's pretty crap also and thus it wasn't worth the effort of the previous screen, enough!
