Garfield is a game based on the comic strip of the same name. The game was released on the PlayStation 2 and PC. Both versions were made by Renderware, Hip Interactive and The Code Monkeys. it was the first 3D Garfield game.
Jon goes out of the house and leaves Garfield to his own devices, but Garfield must keep out of trouble and leave the house tidy to win a big lasagna. Garfield, expectantly, falls asleep. When he wakes up, Odie has made the whole house messy. Garfield now must explore the house and put everything back to normal before Jon gets home.
The player (As Garfield) must clean the house and put everything in the right place before Jon gets home. Garfield uses the vacuum to suck things in and put them in the right place by blowing them out. The game lasts for about 8 hours and if you have not cleaned the house in time, you get put on a diet then the game ends. There is many rooms in the game. You must clean rooms to collect keys to open these rooms. Almost everything in each room is intractable. The player can only hold three items and then must go to storage boxes to store items. You can also save the game at these storage boxes. There are also various mini games that the player can play, including classic console games.
The Garfield game received average-to-terrible ratings. PS2 UK magazine gave it a 2/10 and JeuxVideo PC gave it a 4/20. Major reasons include unattractive graphics, slightly-sluggish controls, and Odie only flipping around when kicked.
