SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle For Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated Review Summary

FairCritic Consensus

Fantastic Visuals

Bright and colourful remastered visuals bring Spongebob to life on modern screens.

Frustrating Game Design

Outdated game design can make Battle For Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated frustrating to play.

Simplistic

The overly simplistic gameplay can become a bit tenuous after a few hours.

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle For Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated sticks a little too closely to the original game, although the updated visuals are an absolutely delight to look at.

Nostalgia and a new paint job aren't enough to save you from the dull, frustrating, and wonky experience that is SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated.

With a remake, all of this, along with the often questionable level design, could have been corrected. But with SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated aiming to be as faithful to the original as possible, these issues only serve as a reminder of how much better the industry has become at making 3D platformers.

While SpongeBob fans will undoubtedly be happy to play through a game that retains the show’s sense of humor and colorful animation, its solid platforming and the freedom it provides players with to explore its diverse levels make it one of the better remakes we’ve seen.

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated is a solid remake that perhaps stays a little too true to the original. The updated visuals bring the game more inline with the original cartoon series, but some dated game design holds the port back from being truly exceptional.

It’s a solid execution on a game that has only grown with popularity since its release. For those ‘90s kids out there, it offers a moment of relaxation, a short break to slip back to a time that was a bit easier than now. Much like SpongeBob, I need it.

A good remake with some extra. A little bit clumsy in some part, but funny and perfect for SpongeBob fans.
