Earthworm Jim hands-on

The invertebrate space-hero squirms back into the limelight

Like previous games in the series, Earthworm Jim promises to pack in a ton of surreal, crude humor, which we got a little taste of when we were flushed down a gigantic toilet toward the end of the junkyard. We'll have to wait and see if the game will direct much of its humor at the over-12 set, though, because we couldn't figure out how to kill the robot boss lurking just beyond.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
