Frogger: The Great Quest is a 2001 action-platforming game developed and published by Konami of America in association with Papa Yeti Studio for the PlayStation 2 and Microsoft Windows. The Game Boy Advance version was also released, but is a separate game.

Why It Sucks

  1. Ugly graphics and visuals that can be compared to budget games released in the late 1990s.
  2. The controls are a huge mess, meaning that you would have no idea on what you were doing.
  3. The camera is annoying and lazy.
  4. Poor and annoying voice acting.
  5. You attack enemies by spitting or using frog-fu at them instead of just simply jumping on them.
  6. The music, while actually good for the most part, is not even fitting.
  7. The game does not even feel like a Frogger game. It feels like a cheap and generic three-dimensional platformer game with Frogger thrown into it, which in itself isn't a bad thing except for the fact that Frogger is not himself in this game.
  8. It is so painful to play that there is no replay value at all. 
  9. The game is very easy, as it was aimed towards a more younger gamer. It is also possible to beat the game without taking a single hit (citation needed).
  10. The Microsoft Windows version does not allow you to change the graphical quality or resolution.
  11. The game can be beaten in under an hour if you are smart enough.
  12. Occasionally, you can get stuck in sections of a course, which forces you to reset your console or close the program on your personal computer, depending on which port you play.
  13. Frogger is an anthropomorphic animal that wears clothes and speaks in natural language instead of croaking.
  14. It's not even possible to collect all the coins, gems or even all the magic stones in the game because of where they're hidden in some levels such as Slick Willy's River Boat, The Catacombs, and Goblin Trail.
  15. In the Catacombs level, you can't kill ghosts, but they can kill you.
  16. In one part, one of the characters says “Pissed Off”. In an E-rated game made for children.

 Redeeming Qualities

  1. The soundtrack is pretty good.
  2. Lumpy the toad makes his debute and would return in Frogger Beyond.

At least the later Frogger games after Frogger: The Great Quest look better: Frogger's Journey: The Forgotten Relic, Frogger's Adventures: The Rescue, Frogger Beyond, Frogger: Ancient Shadow, Frogger: Helmet Chaos, and My Frogger Toy Trials. What does everyone think of them if they have played any one of them?
