As Dr. Muto, players forge through 22 vast levels on four distinct planet scapes: from the junkyard world of Totltec, to the half-drowned water world of Aquem, through the smog-choked skies of Flotos, and finally, to the forbidden mines of Mazon. Armed with his newest invention, the Splizz-gun, Dr. Muto morphs into a variety of DNA-spliced-up creatures including an alien spider, miniature mouse, and hulking gorilla. By morphing, Dr. Muto gains each creature's abilities and physical attributes--such as the ability to cling to webs, squeeze into tight spaces, or breathe underwater--all to better crush, outwit, and outlast ten different enemies.

In Dr. Muto you take on the role of the good doctor and your goal is basically to rebuild your home planet after you mistakenly blew it to bits. But in order to accomplish this task you must morph into various creatures including a spider, horsefly, gorilla, and many other hilarious life forms. Sounds simple right? Well guess again. Dr. Muto is one of the most challenging action/platformers to come out in some time.
The graphics in Dr. Muto are really actually good. Don't expect the cartoony look of most of today's games, instead Muto has a real dark and dank look to it. I've played the demo's of both the PS2 and Gamecube versions and the X-Box version is by far and away the best looking of the bunch.
The music and sound effects in Dr. Muto are also fairly good. Nothing to write home about or plug in the stereo system but good nonetheless. I especially liked the voice acting. Some of the best I've heard in quite a long time.
The gameplay is where Dr. Muto really shines. Being able to morph into different forms and take on the abilities of those lifeforms is where the game really begins to take on a look and feel of its own. I especially loved the levels using the spider and it's climbing abilities. You can tell that Midway really put a lot of time and thought into the level designs using the morphing abilities. Finally a platformer with some uniqueness to it.
I wouldn't reccomend this game for really young children as it's a fairly difficult game. Some of the dialog is also probably not terribly suitable for younger kids. Midway obviously geared this game for the 18-35 demographic. As far as replay value goes, it takes a long time just to beat the game but trying to perfect the game will take longer than most people will stay into this game. If you are looking for something new and innovative for a change, pick up Dr. Muto. All three versions of the game are good but the X-Box is better in just about every category. It's just what the doctor ordered! (Sorry I couldn't resist! : )
