This game would probably not be so much fun if I hadn't seen and loved the movie as much as I did! Graphically, the looks and animations of the characters and settings are modeled beautifully after those of the film, and the game is a joy just to look at, let alone play! Stitch himself is fairly weak compared to his amazing strengths in the movie, and he can only withstand four hits from his enemies (which are easy to sustain given some of the heavy-fire situations coupled with Stitch's somewhat slow movements), but generous spreads of weapons and health powerups help to balance that out. Lilo's stages (the ones where she's required to sneak around an alien starship in an attempt to escape) are actually the most compelling; while Stitch's are fairly straightforward shoot-em-ups, Lilo's are more puzzle-oriented and fun to solve. Once you've gotten a feel for the game's nuances, it's actually a lot of fun and not too terribly difficult until you encounter the main boss, Dr. Pestus himself... *he* is a royal pain in the ..., but has predictable patterns that can be discerned after a while. My favorite thing about this game is that it's a wonderfully accurate homage to the movie it's based on, and if you loved "Lilo & Stitch," then you're more than ceratain to glean quite a bit of entertainment value out of playing through this game and unlocking the adorable movie stills and clips as rewards for your progress.
