Phineas and Ferb prove TV shows can have a decent game.
The menu is very poor, but the game features plenty P&F characters (Both kids and OWCA agents), weapons and collectibles to justify it.
The visuals are colorful, smooth and resemble the show's art style flawlessly. Though the menus could use some original artwork rather than the classic character poses.
The background music may not be catchy (or noticeable), but there's a couple of songs from the movie (Brand New Reality, Robot Riot), a game-exclusive song, and perfect voice acting (Specially from Dan Povenmire, playing Doof as good as ever)
The gameplay is the same as Ratchet and Clank, coming from the same development team. You basically get and upgrade gadgets by using them a lot (Kinda like an RPG).
LASTING APPEAL: 6
Once you beat the game (Which sadly takes only 5 hours), there's still some stuff to do. Buy costumes, characters, items, gadget mods, and collect every token from each level. However, it only adds a few hours to the game.
GAMESPOT SCORE: 8
