Game Vortex writes: "I will say, I am flat out disappointed in Astro Boy: The Video Game. I got a brief glimpse of these games at E3 and what I saw was promising, but the end result ended up being annoying, difficult and too repetitive to be worth the trouble.
There is one area that Astro Boy does right, and that's the graphics. The game's 2D, side-scrolling presentation is reminiscent of Mega Man and other platformers. Astro himself is small on the screen, but still full of enough detail to make him distinctly Astro. Even Astro's strange weapons like his Arm Cannon and Butt Guns are definitely visible when activated."
