Jimmy Neutron vs. Jimmy Negatron is an action game published by THQ in 2002. The PC version was developed by AWE Games, and the Game Boy Advance version by Hungarian studio Human Soft. It is based on the TV series, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.

Plot

Jimmy Negatron, evil boy genius, plans to take over Retroville, and it's up to Jimmy Neutron to stop him!

Bad Qualities

PC Version

  1. This game reuses the same engine from the previous Jimmy Neutron game, which was made a year prior to this game.
  2. The main antagonist, Jimmy Negatron, is just a typical "I'm going to take over the world because I'm evil!" type of villain. Not to mention the fact that he is just a clone of Jimmy Neutron, with the only thing standing out from him would be his lab coat, beard and gloves.
  3. Stupid plot: Jimmy Negatron's plan is to mess with Jimmy Neutron's dimension just for fun, and to impress Cindy Vortex.
  4. The lip-syncing is horrendous as the mouth movement just doesn't match the words properly.
  5. Moronic enemy AI: The mechanical dinosaur AI doesn't even immediately attack you, but instead attacks the town without them acknowledging your presence at all when you come near them.
    • This is extremely jarring for an action game like this, especially when the enemy AI is atrocious.
  6. The graphics look like they were made from a Half Life mod.

Game Boy Advance Version

  1. The 3D perspective in this version just doesn't work compared to the PC version.
  2. Boring and bland level designs, even for a game that was released in 2002.
  3. Creepy looking characters.
  4. Awful platforming controls, you fall a lot and can end up being annoyed pretty easily.
  5. Many grammar errors such as the one where Nick says "You are cool boy".
  6. Stupid ending, all it is just the main cast thanking and praising Jimmy for saving them, then after that it displays a still image of Jimmy & Goddard and then it takes you back to the main menu.
  7. Atrocious graphics.
  8. Some of the enemies are pretty strange, such as the mean kids from the evil dimension who look like adults.

Good Qualities

  1. While this game hasn't been received well, the concept of having Jimmy Negatron as a villain in this game is quite the interesting concept, even if it was a bad idea.
  2. The voice actors from the show reprise their roles on the PC version.
  3. While many of the levels are poorly executed, the ideas for them are not too bad.

Reception

The Game Boy Advance version received mixed reviews.[1]

Trivia

  • Both Jimmy Negatron and Jimmy Neutron were both voiced by the same person, which was Debi Derryberry in the PC version.

BQ #3:Stupid plot: Jimmy Negatron's plan is to mess with Jimmy Neutron's dimension just for fun, and to impress Cindy Vortex. Why doesn't he just try to kill him?! Me: Woah! ok then, (calls 911) Police? Im suspecting a serial killer in this wiki

(its a joke by the way)
