    Earthworm Jim, while a really cool experience as a platformer game, was not much fun past the second level if I remember correctly. 'What the Heck?!?' was where the fun always ended for me. Every other level was always making me do something I didn't really want to do in a platformer.

    Bubble race with glass car? No...
    Escort mission with angry child-thing? No...
    Snot a problem?...Not so bad.

    Still, you get two fun stages, maybe three with Level 5, a bunch of difficult/not-fun stages, and then the murder-fest that is the last level.

    Sorry, the nostagia for me, at least on EWJ1 is not very high. I do remember playing What the Heck? numerous times in a row because it was so much fun. Using the cheat codes for the game back in the day was a lot of fun as well. Heh...

    It was an underwater level. You had to navigate through a maze of rocks, and the glass bubble you were in hit the walls, it would start to crack. Too many cracks and it breaks, and you die. What made it a race was you had limited oxygen in the bubble, and you had to stop at refueling docks.

    It was not a fun level...

    You can say that again. I was only five, and it drove me to the point of throwing the game cartridge across the room.

    I think I've matured enough to deal with it now. ;)

    I had both EJ games DLed to my Wii. On EJ2: I keep getting stuck on the level where you have to fly and push the bombs on the side scroller level. I don't recall that level...ever...but then again, it has been quite a few years since I played it.

    Anyone else kinda bothered by that video using different voice overs?
