    Man, this game is hard!

    Death Jr. is a fun platformer but the difficulty almost ruins it for me. I think I could have enjoyed this game a lot more if Konami had just toned down the difficulty level by just a little. My breakdown: What's G... Read Full Review

    Could have been alot better.

    Death.jr is a decent platformer/hacknslash game but could have been alot better with more cutscenes and humor. Gameplay: Basicly you are in a museum and you hop from level to level to gather the puzzle pieces. Of cour... Read Full Review

    It's not as bad as everyone thinks it is.

    A lot of people have been telling me that this game sucks and that I shouldn't have gotten it. I saw a bunch of mixed views on the game from gamespot, game pro, and ign. Since it was only 9.99 at Gamestop, I figured that... Read Full Review

    What a waste of 10 dollars.

    You start out at DJ, the Grim Reaper's son, as he and his friends go to an museum for a field trip. As DJ progresses through the museum, they see a chest that cannot be opened. In an effort to impress Pandora, you open i... Read Full Review

    good fun but can be extremely hard.

    Death Jr. is an innovative game. The cut-scenes and story line are really good. It keeps you occupied and immersed in the game. But once you get past the first levels, some of the second levels seem to be completely impo... Read Full Review

    Great to the level of 8 out of 10! Worth playing, Majorly.

    This game was given to me by a friend for my system, so I can't say this game is the talk of the town, but this game is gory and has a great story line too. This game had me glued to the screen even through those tough ... Read Full Review

    Buy the second one.

    Gameplay: repeptitive but i would rather play the second one. The games camera really brings it down. I hate keep pressing L every two seconds. Levels that you have to play through are creative. Graphics: always one o... Read Full Review

    While not a bad game, Death JR doesn't do much for the genre.

    Death JR is exactly what you would expect out of a platformer. You run, you jump, you run some more, you shoot moe stuff, ect...ect...ect.... The game play is straight forward and the level design is rather linear with ... Read Full Review
