Gary reviews the Futurama video game for the Microsoft Xbox video game console! Check out the adventures of Fry, Leela and Bender, right here!

The Futurama video game, based on the hit cartoon of the same name, is an instant classic third person shooter adventure game, and its A LOT of fun...

Futurama - Video Game Basics

The evil Mom has had her eyes on taking over the earth for a while now, and with her purchasing of Planet Express Deliveries (business has been slow) she officially owns 51 percent of the world. She decides to show her new muscle by releasing thousands of killer robots to enforce her power. The gang from Futurama (Bender, Fry, Leela, and Dr. Zoidberg) decide that something should be done about it, declaring, "Let's get the heck off the planet!!" What follows is 19 levels (plus three hidden bonus levels) of compulsive cartoon mayhem with some of the funniest dialogue I've heard on a video game in years.

Futurama - The Future is Sweet

Futurama is super easy to control and plays like an episode of the cartoon. It has tons of action (punches, kicks, rolls, laser blasters, fighting mutants and robots). It requires some very basic problem solving skills (how do I cross the river of toxic waste? I know, use the crocodile!) Plus, the further along you go, the more characters you can play. And, what's totally cool about that is each character has different moves and controls. (Bender's Butt Slam is a personal favorite. Funny).

Some of the cool things about Futurama include the readily available amount of slurm (replenishes health, and you'll need it 'til you get the hang of things), the hidden treats that you can get when you free the Nibblers for each level; tons of hidden life and ammo, plus the graphics and soundtrack are awesome. The extras section gives you sneak peeks at levels to come. And, playing Fry in the Chicken Walker Mech in first-person view and blowing up robots kicks serious butt .... LAZABLASTA!!

Futurama - The Future is Bleak

The most uncool thing about the game is the lack of save options. The check points give you more starting options as long as you have characters in play. Once you lose your initial six players, you'll have to start again from the last save. Major bummer, because once you start you'll want to keep playing, and even though repeating levels gets easier with each try, it doesn't get cooler.

How Hard is Futurama?

Futurama is easy to learn to play and starts out easy to beat. It gets way harder as you go along, so by the time you make level 19, you've earned it.

Futurama Age Rating: Teen.

Futurama Thumbs Up:

  • Great graphics.
  • Hilarious dialogue.
  • Easy to use controls.
  • Multiple characters (you play all of them at once in the last level!).
  • Hidden treats and extra sections.

    Futurama Thumbs Down:

  • Not enough save game checkpoints.
