This is the one of the only bad parts of the game as it means that you can have only one persons game on it at any one time. You can't have two different peoples game on it.
There is also a bonus menu, This is where you can view all the music and video clips you unlock throughout the game.
The game is done in a type of sketchy cartoon like style. The characters of the game look like cartoon characters. The graphics in the game are done very well.
The sound in the game is also good. Not the best, kind of samey after a while but okay none the less.
I really enjoyed playing this game. At first easy but after a while became very difficult so I became more into and started to really enjoy it. I think I bought this from argos for about £7 at the time which now I think about was a bargain of a game.
