I was very skeptical of this game at first because I was pretty sure they couldn't have made a worse turn for the series than the second installment. I was quite amazed. Instead of looking for ship parts you're sent to recover the sacred vinyls of funk but it's pretty much the same gameplay and environments as the original TJ&E but it's three dimensional. The music is catchy and during gameplay it switches between night and day. You still collect presents and you still go around avoiding moldy bread and other gross items of food that will drain your life. There are little bells and whistles in this game that set it apart from the originals but it really boils down to the graphics and 3d environments that make the ultimate difference. Also in this version you are given a third character to choose from (Latisha) to assist in taking down the Anti Funk who is responsible for all of the angry and not nice enemies you encounter throughout the game. You collect records and keys that get you into other levels and new world maps, funkify enemies into being your friend, beat the Anti Funk and try not to die. Thats pretty much TJ&E3 and I think it's an alright game. The only thing that gets under my skin is the little gospel singing cut scenes that you can't skip. I remember when it first came out people were groaning and making fart sounds with their mouths when they saw what they did with TJ&E. But honestly it turned out really good for what it is. If you like the first one Im pretty sure you'll like this one.
