    A funkin' good game!

    I'm sure there are many of you who don't know what the hell this game is. TJ & E could've easily become SEGA's mascot if it wasn't for Sonic. ToeJam & Earl are two quite funky aliens from the planet Funkotron (no... Read Full Review

    Old school at its finest.

    I remember way back in the day when I had my Sega genesis, playing sonic and hoping that it would work with just a few blows (Insert joke). I don't know how I got this game and I don't even know why but I loved it. Back ... Read Full Review

    Hiphop craze sure goes out of hand... If you have a Genesis or a Wii! i would say "Jammin'!"

    Released in 1991, for the Sega Genesis, ToeJam and Earl, is a unique game that is difficult to classify. Is it a platformer? An adventure game? Puzzle? Well I still don't know what to label it. I can tell that it is one ... Read Full Review

    Yo, check it--Toejam and Earl is worth jammin' to. Word to your mother.

    Strange as this game was, my friend and I LOVED playing it on his Sega Genesis. (He always had me playing the skinny one--Toejam) Something about two hip-hop aliens appealed to us, but it wasn't just that element alone... Read Full Review

    Jammin'!

    It took me nearly 17 years, but I only just finished Toejam and Earl for the first time last night. What a game! And such a simple concept too. The titular characters (a three-legged eyeball type dude and a fat dude) ... Read Full Review

    ToeJam and Earl provides a slow-paced but incredible gaming experience.

    This game is one of the two games that I remember from my childhood. (The other is Zombies Ate My Neighbors) Both of these games provided me and my family back then. Well, when I saw this on VC, I was excited. I download... Read Full Review

    Fantastic and wacky co-op with a hip-hop beat.

    Toejam & Earl is a game of my childhood. Countless happy hours were spent with my sister and me in front of the TV, listening to the electronic beats of the two hip aliens desperately searching for their rocket ship piec... Read Full Review

    One of the most unique and inspiring Sega Genesis games!

    Toejam and Earl was and still is one of the Genesis' most high quality games. The game was about two aliens who crash landed on earth and had their rocket ship break into numerous pieces across numerous levels. The best... Read Full Review

    Wow, this game didn't age well at all.

    So this game isn't anything like how I remember it. Seriously. I got this mainly for the 2 player mode to play with my girlfriend. Big mistake. Wish I would have saved my Wii points for something else. We played it ... Read Full Review

    Slow-paced, yet incredibly unique and surprisingly fun.

    I love Virtual Console. Purely for the reason that, without it, I would never get the chance to revisit some of the titles I used to play in my childhood years. There were many titles I wanted to revisit and one such tit... Read Full Review
