Spare Parts Review (GameSpot)

Perhaps “Spare Parts” wasn’t the best name for EA Bright Light’s newest downloadable platformer. The name all too often highlights the clunky way this online and offline cooperative journey borrows liberally from Ratchet & Clank and misuses the considerable voice talents of Simon Pegg, resulting in a fairly brief experience that feebly parrots aspects of much better 3D platformers. That’s not to say that Spare Parts lacks charm, but it quickly crumbles under the weight of a lackluster cooperative mode, missed opportunities for humor, and questionable and imprecise controls.
