    Frogger is a classic game of skill and timing that –while fun- may be too shallow for the tastes of the modern gamer.

    Frogger.... old fun

    Rated on September 05, 2006 by flavort

    Yeah frogger was cool for the old systems but any attempt to bring it back has been a disaster. You can get it on the controller plug ins but it just isn't worth it. I loved this game in the days but ...

    Hop a frog across a series of hazards and get your frog to safety on the lily-pad.

    Rated on February 10, 2006 by mtdewtag

    Gameplay: You have to move 5 frogs on to their lily-pads located at the top of the screen. It sounds easy and almost seems so in the beginning. However to get your frog to the safety of the lily...

    I never realized how hard the life of a frog was. Now only if they had made "Squirreler"!

    total classic

    Rated on March 11, 2006 by fistfull_of_me

    I can't be certain, but this will waste your life even after 8 seconds of playing it.

    Rated on January 25, 2008 by Blueguy93

    The rest of the frogger games were great. This game, however, was lucky to spawn a great series. The arcade version sucked. In fact, the 2600 version is way better than this. Game-play: 1/10 Y...
